barry m lipstick - genie

Today's lipstick post is a bit of an unusual one. When I opened a Christmas present to find a Green lipstick inside, I was a bit unsure of what my mum was trying to tell me. She must have noticed a puzzled look on my face as she kept insisting it wasn't what I thought. Intrigued, I gave it a go and actually I was pleasantly surprised..

Genie is not your typical green lipstick, in fact it isn't green at all. Although the bullet is green it actually transforms into a lovely pink shade, which is where i am gathering the name Genie comes from. No flies on me, eh?! This lipstick adapts to the Alkalines that are already in the lips and creates a unique pink colour. On me, it turns into a punchy, tinted pink which I have been wearing as a nice everyday shade.

Available at Barry M and Boots.

I have found this to be a nice alternative to a tinted balm or moisturiser as it feels lovely on the lips and gives them a nice smooth feel. The shade lasts a surprisingly long time too, I found even after a good few hours I still have a nice pink stain. 

For a bit of a Novelty product, you can really go wrong for the price and I guess it's a bit of a beauty related case of not judging a book by it's cover! ♥
