A Very British Lip Kit

Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Kit ReviewAlong with pretty much every other beauty addict in the UK, I have been lusting after the Kylie Jenner lip kits, for a long time. The problem, as with ordering most things from the states, is the shipping and customs charges. No matter how much I love the look of a beauty product, I couldn’t take the risk of being slapped with a huge charge on an item I might not love in real life. I think things might have been different if I could have at least seen one of Kylie’s lip kits in the flesh before ordering. But, for a product that is surprisingly affordable to our friends over the pond, I wasn’t willing to trump up the cash for my products night stay in customs.

So with Kylie’s lip kits out of the question, I think quite a few brands in the UK have cottoned on to the fact that British makeup mavens need a dupe. I’ve resisted the temptation to buy anything that even slightly resembles a Kylie lip kit and managed to make one purchase from this new wave of lip trends. After trying out the Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Kit in store, I thought it was worth a whirl! View Post
