cut a caper-ever hip-bazza 147

a few weeks ago i had a little twitter disagreement with bazza m, which resulted in him offering to send me some nice things to make me happy. not long after a little barry m shaped package arrived for me! how exciting, right?!

147 lip paint, peach melba nail paint, bold black pencil liner

before he sent my package he asked what kind of things i liked, and if there was anything i wanted to try. i couldn't think of anything at the time so i just said i liked neutrals and i was a fan of the nail and lip paints so i was super glad to receive these colours! i actually bought blue moon a few weeks ago and contemplated buying peach melba also but decided not to for some reason. i've heard quite a lot about the 147 being a dupe for mac ever hip, and ever hip being a dupe for cut a caper.. so..


cut a caper, ever hip, 147

i think the lightening must have been rubbish here because they're photographing really red - they're definitely very coral! i'd say ever hip and cut a caper are basically the same colour but different finishes but the 147 whilst is lovely, isn't quite the same. it's a bit peachier and i don't know if it's just me but i find the lip paints a little harder to wear - they do seem to emphasise dry areas.

cut a caper, ever hip, barry m 147

i think these photos show the colours much more accurately than the lipsticks side by side. you can see the peachiness in the 147 a lot more, and the pink in the mac ones show up more on me.. which i do think suits me better. if you prefer orange/peach corals then the 147 will be perfect for you, if you prefer pinker corals then i'd recommend cut a caper and i'd say ever hip is somewhere in between. unfortunately the mac lipsticks are limited edition but if you can find them anywhere definitely pick them up! i think my favourite is ever hip, mainly because it's a cremesheen where as cut a caper is a lustre and doesn't last as long!

who knew there were so many shades of coral though?! whats your favourite coral lipstick?

  5. I searched for peach melba last week and couldn't find it anywhere - I've never tried Barry M lipsticks before but I've seen a few posts recently that have mentioned them. Gonna give this a try - I don't own a coral lippie!

  8. Peach melba is gorgeous :) I had 147 too, it really suits you but it just looked weird on me! I find the lipsticks like you hard to work with. I just think the formula isn't the best. As much as I love Bazza M for their nail paints their lipsticks are a no-no for me. Great post though x

  12. I also find the lip paints a bit drying, they're not very moisturising, but they stay on for ages! So jealous of your free parcel! http://openboxjewels.blogspot.com/ X

  13. Oh, I definitely agree with you on the lip paints - I love the shades, but they're incredibly drying! I do love a good coral lipstick, although I wasn't aware there were so many shades on the market at the moment, though! xx

  20. I'm a big fan of MAC lipstick ut the Barry M one looks lovely. I think my favourite here is even hip, it looks just a little pinker than the others
