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.
