If you are looking to try out a matte lip product, then I would highly recommend the new Barry M Matte Me Up lip products.

I recently bought the Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Kit (Liquid Lip Paint & Lip Liner) in shade Runway (£6.99 at Superdrug) and the Barry M Matte Me Up Matte Liquid Lip Paint in Embellish (£4.99 at Superdrug.) Lip kits became really popular after Keeping Up With The Kardashian star Kylie Jenner launched her own lip kit collection, but to be honest I could never be bothered to order one because I could never justify the cost, plus there are so many dupes and matte liquid lipsticks that I could buy in the UK for a fraction of the cost.

Anyway, I bought Embellish and Runway and let me tell you, these are worthy purchases. Embellish is a purple shade and Runway is rosy-nude colour. 

From top to bottom: Embellish liquid lip paint, Runway liquid lip paint and Runway lip liner.
I prefer to mix the shades together in order to create a bold purple/dark pink shade.

Here is the result.

All in all, I am love the finished look. The Matte Me Up lip products leave a bold and strong matte finish (so it does what it says on the tin, so to speak). Some matte lip products dry out the lips (and that's a total no-no for me because my lips are prone to dryness) but the Matte Me Up lip products are quite smooth and gentle on the lips, and the look is long-lasting too.
