The Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paints have been around for a few years now. After the success of Genie which is a Green Lip Paint that magically transforms into a bright pink upon application, Barry M went on to release 2 more Colour Changing Lip Paints; Neptune and Unicorn.
Neptune is a dark blue that reacts to the lips alkaline level to create a unique shade that appears different on everyone.
I’m a sucker for gimmicky makeup and these lip paints are right up my street.

The Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paints are fun shades that react to the lips alkaline levels to create a unique lip colour. There are 3 shades in the collection: Genie, which is a green that turns bright pink; Neptune, which is a blue that turns ‘dark pink/purple’; and Unicorn, which is a yellow that turns a pale pink.
The Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paints have been labelled ‘dupes’ of the Lipstick Queen Colour Changing Lipsticks with Genie being released shortly after Frog Prince, and Neptune shortly after Hello Sailor. Unfortunately I don’t own the Lipstick Queen products to be able to put them side by side but one thing I do know for certain is that the Barry M Lip Paints are much more affordable at £4.99
In the description Barry M states that Neptune turns a ‘dark pink’ shade however I think, on me, it looks more purple than pink. It feels comfortable to wear throughout the day, it’s not drying but the pigment does cling to dry patches on the lips so best to exfoliate and moisturise before applying this lipstick.
