Barry M Lip Paint 52 (Shocking Pink) - Review, Photos, Swatches

"If I walk outside without lipstick, I feel naked." - Sofia Vergara

Once upon a time, there was this girl who's into makeup products, except bold lipsticks. She wasn't comfortable at people staring at her pout. One day, 3 of her beautiful friends who acted like 3 fairies finally made her try these bad-ass bright lipsticks, and she fell in love. Ever since then, she struts her stuff with her head-turning puckers, changing the world, one bright shade at a time. Now, she's blogging under the name Chilipina :)

This lipstick is probably the best MAC Candy Yum Yum dupe I've encountered, and is also one of my current favorite drugstore pink lipsticks.

Barry M is a UK-based brand that offers a wide variety of makeup products, in a quality that's at par with high-end brands, without the high-end price. 

This particular shade, LP 52, is one of the best dupes for MAC Candy Yum Yum that I've seen so far. Matte (without overtly drying), opaque, and highly pigmented. I believe this came out first before CYY. (Correct me if I'm wrong)

PROS: matte (without drying), opaque, highly pigmented, affordable, shade is pretty close to Candy Yum Yum
CONS: only available online (EBAY, online stores)

VERDICT: 5 out of 5 CHILIS! Though it's not available in our local department store / drugstore, its pretty easy to find this online.

Do you want me to post a comparison of the MAC Candy Yum Yum and it's possible dupes?
Let me know. :)

  2. Hi! Curious lang po ako kung anong color niya when applied to the lips. Mas prominent po ba yung blue undertones? Yung magmumukhang purple na siya. Thanks!

    1. Hi Faye! Yes, prominent yung blue undertones. It looks soo similar to MAC Candy Yum Yum, its the best dupe for CYY. Purple-ish Pink siya when worn. I'll try to post a photo when worn :)

      Thank you!
