Swatch - Barry M Lip Paint 146 Dolly Pink

This amazing pink lipstick was included in the prize package sent by Candice @ Makeup Box. :)
It was the first thing I tried from the goodies but it took me some time to get around to swatching since it was kinda difficult to capture this rather chameleon-like color. It sure looks different under different lighting!

Barry M Lip Paint 146 Dolly Pink


Dolly Pink  is a (very) blue-based medium barbie pink color.
It is one of those perfect colors that requires a right complexion paired with other suitable makeup colors.
I am not sure this color is the best choice for me although I am pretty light with neutral colorings.
Nonetheless, Dolly Pink  is a shockingly beautiful color that sure grabs some attention. ;)

The lipstick itself is a full-coverage one with traditional feel, smell, and taste, so you need to prep your lips carefully with some exfoliation and moisturizing with non-greasy lip balm since it could accentuate lines and dryness of your lips.

To me, this would work best as a "statement" lipstick color.
I'd like to try this with falsies and base makeup with more coverage. 
I guess "Dolly Pink"  deserves that. ;p

What is your best way to wear blue-based pink color like this?
Have you tried Barry M Lip Paints? :)

  3. Ahhh, so pretty on you! It is quite a bit of a statement lip but I think it's quite wearable as well. I only have 1 Barry M lipstick in Peachy Pink, but I really like it :)

    I love this pink against your skin color! Very on trend and while many women wear it I think it sometimes gets a little too Jersey Shore with extreme tans. :)

    Btw, enter my giveaway for something Hermès & a gift card ;)

  27. aww thanks, Sunny!
    this is not an easy one even for a person like me who almost always goes for blue-based colors.
    i am experimenting with corals lately. let us be more adventurous. cheers! :)

    i am like you. usually i just wear light colored gloss or sheer glossy lipstick. this color is definitely reserved for special occasions. ;p

    ReplyDelete
  34. thanks, Debi!
    i don't know if is is a really delicate color. for a pink, it sure does have some bite. lolz
    i tend to like something that changes its color depends on lighting. makes it more interesting. right? :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. thank you! :)
    i wasn't so comfortable wearing a full color lipstick like this, but i rarely do..better get used to it, i think? ;p
    i think this color photographs rather well. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. ah i think i said the exact same thing about your beautiful orange lip color, Larie. ;D
    i am not complaning, but it would be super cool for us to be wear the colors we normally fear sometimes. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  40. thanks, Mie! :)
    i still feel timid to wear a full coverage lipstick in any color, actually.
    it is fun trying something dramatic, though!

    ReplyDelete
  43. thanks for the tip, Elrica!
    i am not sure i could pull a full gyaru look, but i definitely want to pair this with more dolly way using falsies and stuff. ;)
