See for yourself:
Of course I am aware that the image has been digitally enhanced and obviously it wouldn't look exactly like that, but I was curious! However, I think other people had the same idea and I went back on numerous occasions and it had sold out. However, when I was browsing the make-up aisle for Barry M shade 154 (Review will be up in a couple of days!) I managed to grab the last one!
So gorgeous on Emma, so gorgeous on the swatch on the bottom of the tube .. but is it just me, or does that look nothing like either? There wasn't a tester of this particular shade available so this could have been prevented, but I wasn't expecting it to be a dark pink with flecks of gold. Don't get me wrong, it's a lovely shade, but looks completely different?
It seems more of a peach/pink in this swatch? The tube swatch and the image of Emma shows the shade being much more coral, orangey even.
The shade seems like a darker, more glittery version of the 'Strawberry Shortcake' lip butter. However, comparisons aside it is a lovely colour. The sparkles make it perfect to wear in the evening, but the pretty pink is ideal for spring and summer days. The shea, mango and cocoa butter gives your lips total nourishment, leaving them as soft and supple as if you'd just applied Vaseline or Chapstick.
Overall, a lovely colour but incredibly misleading. Definitely a colour i'll be wearing again, but let that be a lesson to all of you .. if there's no tester, request one! It'll save disappointment and money if you're unsatisfied with the end result.
