Everyone loves colour changing, novelty cosmetics - right? Well, possibly not, but whether you're still a kid at heart or stick religiously to more 'grown up' cosmetic goods, one thing is undeniable - Barry M 'Touch of Magic' lip paint is probably one of the most inventive things you'll find on a UK make-up stand.
[[ Please excuse fingerprints and mushed bullet :/ ]]
Green in the tube, this lippy transforms into your own custom colour red-pink once applied, intensity depends on the alkali level of the lips. The first swipe leaves a faint pink tint, but over a few minutes the colour develops into an opaque, slightly glossy, lovely colour. Obviously, everyone will get a slightly different shade, so I'm not going to bother to swatch it. Keep in mind that if you've ever swatched this on your hand in store, it will look totally different on your lips since the alkali levels wont be the same.
[[ On me, 'Touch of Magic' is a red-pink hybrid. It is deeper than it photographed. ]]
Barry M promise a waterproof formula that will last for eight hours, which usually means that it would be uncomfortably dry - not so. 'Touch of Magic' doesn't make my lips feel tight or awkward, I actually forget that I'm wearing it! I even used it as a cream blush in this FOTD! As for eight hours... I'm an English teenager, all the tea drinking wipes lipstick off anyway!
I think 'Touch of Magic' is worth buying if you're an avid wearer of red or pink lips and fancy something fun. Can you imagine people's faces if you started touching up your lipstick?! I think I'm gonna trick the boyfriend with it when I next see him...
£4.49 from Superdrug, Boots or the Barry M website.
