Barry M Surprise Surprise Lipgloss Review

Barry M Surprise Surprise Lipgloss

Basically some people are amazing and reading their story and motivation will leave you teary eyed. Holly Addison is one of those people. At 21 she has not only raised over £7,000 in 18 months for charities such as Katharine House Hospice (offers care to those with life crippling and terminal illnesses) and Cancer Research. With that in mind Barry M have teamed up with Holly Addison to create a limited edition lipgloss called Holly A's Surprise Surprise (the surprise and concept with unveiled on the TV show Surprise Surprise). This is a light, pinky toned nude which has been scented Mango and Strawberry, 70% of proceeds from each sale of said gloss also goes directly to the Katherine House Hospice.

As mentioned above Barry M Holly A's Surprise Surprise is a light milky nude hue tinged with pink and iridescent shimmer which does not translate on to the lips. It reminds me a lot of MAC's Hue Lipstick only in lipgloss form. Yes it is a fairly light shade but as it is a lipgloss it works with the lips natural hue rather than masking them. I find shades like this are best layered over similar toned lipsticks for a plumping effect but of course that is not to say it can not be worn alone. Application is fairly easy thanks to the doe foot applicator which admittedly I am not always the biggest fan of but in this instance I do think it evenly distributes the gloss and makes application a breeze.

Surprisingly (no pun intended) for a lip gloss this is not all that sticky and not as sheer as I thought it would be.The pigmentation is a little above average ant provides a nice level of glossy colour, that is moisturising, fairly lightweight and comfortable to wear. I personally really enjoy the scent/taste of this formula to me it smells very reminiscent of sherbet but if you don't like scented lip products then I suggest you skip this product as the scent is fairly noticeable when worn. In terms of wear this does perform how a typical gloss does - I achieved around an hour of wear with each application so not really long lasting but a very pretty shade!

Apologies that there is no current lip swatches, my lips are beyond chapped and the last thing I want to do is display them and of course put people off their food and of course gloss ha! I will update once they heal. 

Barry M Surprise Surprise Lipgloss will be around for six months and costs £4.49, it can be found here - link.
