When I first decided to purchase Barry M Lip Paint in Peachy Pink (around $8 or 350php from The Makeup Haul), what made it an instant buy were the lip swatches I found online. The pink was just the perfect pink, which was very natural and wearable. However, when I tried it on for myself, I noticed that Barry M Lip Paints were too drying, too matte, and the shade I chose, which was Peachy Pink, was too pale. I did not quite like it, but I noticed that combining it with my other favorite shades make it work for me.

Now this one, the NYX Black Label Lipstick in Apple provided the moisture that Barry M lacked. However, worn on its own, it’s too red for my liking. Which is why combining Barry M Lip Paint in Peachy Pink and NYX Black Label Lipstick in Apple gave me a great shade I love wearing:

I’m still on the lookout, though for more shades to mix with Barry M Lip Paints, since they’re pretty difficult to wear alone. I’d advise wearing them with lip gloss or moisture-rich lipsticks to avoid getting that dry and unhealthy-looking pair of puckers.
