Barry M Lip Oils

Hi everyone! I'm actually really excited to write this post because I'm so happy I found these products, they've literally come at a perfect time because I for some weird reason have really gone off lipstick the past month. I don't know why but I really can't be bothered with a full on lip product, I'm just far more into more natural products recently. I saw these Barry M lip oils in one of Zoella's recent videos and I've been after some lip oils for ages because I love the idea of them, they're basically a lip product designed to condition and moisturise lips but also to leave them looking shiny and fuller. I get quite chapped lips anyway but I find lip balms quite boring where as a lip oil also makes your lips look really nice as well as improving their condition, so I really wanted to try these and see if I would enjoy wearing them since I'd gone of lipsticks and I'm not keen on lip glosses in the first place.


The main reason I was so interested in these was because I've seen high end lip oils before, but I haven't come across any drugstore versions, I kind of feel like they are less of a necessity purchase and you get them just because you want them if that makes sense? I don't really NEED a lip oil even though I wanted one which is why I stayed away from high end ones, so when I saw that Barry M had released these for only £4.99 each I really wanted to try them. I was also interested to try these because I've only ever tried nail products from Barry M, so I had no idea whether these would be any good or not. They only have two out at the minute, Berry Good has raspberry and pomegranate oils to moisturise and condition and this one is also slightly tinted, Coco Loco is a clear shade that has coconut oil and camellia in it. 


They come with quite a basic applicator but I quite like it, it's fairly small so it's not messy to apply although it does take a bit longer. The packaging itself obviously isn't the most luxurious, I don't really expect it to be for the price but I still think that the packaging is quite cute. I feel like these are just really good to throw in your bag and use throughout the day, one of the main problems with these is obviously the staying power, they do stay on but if you go to eat anything they just come off, the same as a lip gloss would, however when they are on your lips they feel so amazing! I actually liked these so much I caved and bought a high end lip oil after which was the Clarins Lip Comfort Oil because I had jumped on the lip oil bandwagon and fallen in love, plus I wanted to see how they compared. You can tell the difference between the two but not necessarily in a bad way, these lip oils feel a lot lighter compared to the high end ones, but I think some people might like this because they are a bit less sticky, and you don't feel like you have a heavy product on. Your lips do feel so much nicer after you wear these, I think daily use would benefit but I probably will be using them a lot anyway since I prefer them over a lipstick or any other lip product at the minute.


Another different between the high end product and the Barry M lip oils is the colour in the tinted product, it shows up no where near as much. This picture doesn't do the shade any favours to be honest, Berry Good is on the left and Coco Loco is on the right, I think Berry Good looks a lot nicer on the lips than swatched, it doesn't full on tint your lips it just compliments and enhances your lip colour with a bit of a hint of pink but I like this to be honest. Coco Loco just applies like a clear gloss but both still make your lips look really healthy and full. If I had to choose one of these over the other, based on how your lips look I'd choose Berry Good. My favourite thing about both these products though is the smell, they honestly smell so amazing I'm obsessed with the scent! I prefer how Coco Loco smells, it has the nicest coconut smell, it just reminds me of summer, where as Berry Good is a sweet raspberry scent, I do like it but I just think Coco Loco is so nice. 

I actually am obsessed with these products, and for the price they are so good! I think they are really good for people like me who are more into natural lip products but are also good for the condition of your lips, compared to a high end lip oil they are still something I would purchase again, in some ways I prefer the Barry M lip oils actually, I love how they feel when you're wearing them. I'm so happy these were released for summer as they go so well with a nice glowy look so I will definitely be using them a lot, let me know in the comments if you've tried these and what you think!

  2. I've never tried lip oils before because I've only seen ones from higher end brands but these look interesting! My lips tend to get really dry as I wear a lot of matte lipsticks so these could definitely be a help!

  4. I love lip oils especially my Lancome Juicy Shaker, because it doesn't feel heavy on my lips but keeps them hydrated. I must look into these Barry M ones as they're much more affordable and sound very similar x

  6. I'm usually not a big fan of lip oils, as they stick to my hair and get all messy!

  8. HAHA! I can totally relate to you, I have been loving a lip oil that I recently got my hands on. I haven't been wearing matte lips too instead I have been opting lip gloss which is so strange for me. For some reason Summer makes me so lazy with matte lips.

  9. I wish these were in the US, I've only found one drugstore lip oil and I really don't like the vanilla scent! I wish they were more tinted but for $5 they sound like a great product, thanks for the recommendation x

  24. I'm just like you, I've only ever really tried nail varnishes from Barry M so I'm definitely intrigued by these! I often wear lipstick - maybe it's time I switched it up and gave these a go!
