I can’t describe how excited I was to get hold of these new lip shines. I
am a huge fan of the Barry M Gelly Shine Nail Paints, as they look great and are
long lasting.


The product is described as:

Soft, moisturising lip crayons in 5 hot shades; with their
ultra-rich, highly pigmented formula, Gelly Hi Shine Lips create an intense
depth of colour with an unbelievable sheen.
As I am starting to feel all summery, I decided to try the pinker shades of:
Number 3 – Electra
Number 4 – Sirius

Overall first impressions:

Both of the colours are highly pigmented, as you can see from my swatch. However, Electra (at the top), is perhaps slightly more pigmented.

The first thing I have to say I noticed is that they smell amazing! They smell like candy, but unfortunately they are tasteless. However, I guess that’s a good thing, as you want the product to stay on your lips (and not be licking it off because it tastes so good!).

I was also very impressed that they are not sticky, unlike a lot of other lip shines I have tried. I find that stickiness tends to put me off and I then only tend to wear the lip product on nights out. These however, I felt I would wear anytime of day.


They are long lasting – I even found that even after the initial layer of colour had worn off, I was still left with the pink tint on my lips. I did however find at this point my lips felt a little drier, so I applied a little lip balm, then later re-applied the lip shines.These are definitely going to become one of my favourite go-to lip products this summer!

The lip shines are available at: Boots retailing at £4.99.
