Beauty Review: Barry M Cor Balmy!

Cor Balmy Tinted Lip Balm Barry M


Cor Balmy Tinted Lip Balm Barry M

Purple! My ultimate lip colour. I have stains, lip gloss, lipstick in various purple berry colours. I had to dump my go-to purple lip balm as it contained an ingredient I’m mildly intolerant to and I’ve been searching for an equally good cruelty free replacement for around 6 months. Imagine my joy when I came across this shade Currant Bun!

Cor Balmy Tinted Lip Balm Barry M

This has a conditioning core meaning my high maintenance lips never dry up and always remain smooth.


One quick slick gives a hint of colour and two heavier slicks give a fantastic depth of colour. Impressively, even after the gloss has worn off my lips still have a stain of the colour on them.

I use my arm as a tester because everybody’s lips are a different depth of colour. But honestly, when I took a close up my lips they either resembled two lillo’s stacked up or when I pouted, they appeared ridiculously sexual. There was no in-between!

So I shall be stocking up on these as (with all Barry M products) it’s reasonably priced at £3.49.

  1. Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where
    I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?

    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!


  2. This is a great site and a great read! Brilliant post! I’ve been meaning to try out these lip colours and think I’ll definitely give them a go now! Currant Bun looks like a beautiful colour too, I was wary of going too dark but I like how you can build it up! If you’re ever around to offer an opinion on the CF products my way or to recommend some more for me to try, then I’d love if you could check out my blog at 🙂


    • Thanks Annabelle! In summer I struggle to find colours that are dark enough, without looking too goth. I love CF blogs and how ‘CF’ has become a thing in beauty blogging circles ✌ I have a mission at the mo to find a light moisturiser with SPF that isn’t full of essential oils (which can go funky in strong sunlight). Any ideas?


    • I just read that you support The Body Shop even though it’s owned by L’Oreal and have to agree! They do so much humane work for animals and people I can’t not. I wish China would hurry up & get with the international CF programme though!
