Yay or Nay: Barry M Loud Mouth Extreme Lip Colour Review

Hello everybody!

I'm here with another Yay or Nay post and this time I will be reviewing the Barry M Loud Mouth Extreme Lip Colour.

Here is what Barry M has to say about this product:

"Extreme liquid lip colour for the perfect power pout. The high pigment provides an intense colour coverage to make the most of your mouth! In 7 hot shades including Diva, Tease, Gossip, Show Off, Chatterbox, Screamer and Tell-Tale, get Loud Mouth and get noticed this summer."

So these little buggers come in lipstick sized squeezy tubes.
Left to Right: Tell-Tale, Chatterbox, Screamer, Tease, Show Off, Diva, Gossip (laying)
I thought about reviewing this product as a whole and just giving my general thoughts on them accompanied by my usual swatches. However, when I actually came to test them out, I realised that my thoughts varied with the shades.

All shades have a sweet scent and taste (no they aren't edible I'm sure but as with all lip products, one some how manages to get a taste!)

I found it easier to apply some of these with either my fingers or a small brush as the applicator is plastic which causes streaking and doesn't give a precise application. They all have a slightly sticky feel of a gloss and, as promised, are highly pigmented.

Here are a swatches of all 7 shades.

(For the purposes of this review, the swatch pictures have not been edited and so are a true representation of the colours of the products to the best of my ability.)
TEASE: A true red. Only requires one swipe to get full coverage. This was one of my favourite shades and was super easy to apply from the tube applicator.

SHOW OFF: A warm baby pink. I had trouble applying this because of the applicator. It was a lot easier with my fingers or with a brush for precise application. Pretty shade for day wear or paired with a smokey eye.

SCREAMER: A light coral. I applied this little at a time with a brush. This shade is perfect if you have a tan. 

CHATTERBOX: A cool baby pink. This is a very similar shade to Show Off as you can see from the swatches. It is slightly blue based which is excellent if you want the illusion of whiter teeth! I don't know if it was just my tube but when I squeezed it to dispense the product, I managed to get a blob of clear liquid first, followed by the actual product! Did it split?! No idea. Glad I applied this on the back of my hand first!

TELL-TALE: A super light nude/pink. This shade is almost white! I had the same splitting problem with this colour. Worn on its own, it didn't suit my olive skin tone at all. In fact, if anything, it made me look washed out and zombie like. Its not a complete miss though as it makes a great base, dabbed on to your lips, to layer on another lip colour if you want to lighten the shade.

GOSSIP: A bright pink. Another one of my favourite shades. Absolutely gorgeous to apply and has a beautiful blue base for whiter teeth! It is very pigmented so it is best applied with a brush for contouring the mouth.

DIVA: A cherry red. Hello hollywood! An absolutely stunning shade and my favourite out of all 7. Blue based again and best applied with a brush. This shade and a slick of mascara and you'll instantly look more put together.

Verdict: This was a tricky one. I would say Yay for the darker shades and a Nay for the lighter ones. I feel, however, that the lighter ones can be worn as a lipgloss (Show Off, Screamer, Chatterbox) on top of another lip colour to switch things up a little bit with the exception of Tell-Tale. This, to me, is definitely more of a base shade as opposed to a lip colour. They all smell gorgeous and aren't for those who steer away from scented cosmetics. I, for one, am all about good smelling products. Obviously, the wear time of these bad boys depends on what you're up to during the day. Kisses are a no-no, as with most glosses. Eating and drinking will require a repeated application. I wore these one by one for a whole day and by the end of the day, my lips, though slightly sticky, were super moisturised with a slight stain.

So those are my thoughts lovelies! Have you tried any of these? What are your favourite shades? I would love to know in the comments below.

Until next time!

Love Love
