Barry M Cor Balmy! Balms In Rosie Lea & Currant Bun

What They Say | "Tell ya chinas, Cor Balmy! is a wicked tinted SPF15 lip balm with a rich moisturising core enriched with Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil and Shea Butter to protect and revitalise dry skin. For less than a Lady Godiva you’re avin’ a bubble!"
What I Say | I was sucked into the Maybelline Baby Lips trend last year and ended up buying them all and I have now seen that they have released a new range (but that's another story). I didn't think much of them, just a nice balm to throw in my handbag when I'm on the go. But whilst browsing my local Superdrug I noticed that Barry M have their own version of very similar lip balms, with the same sort of concept called Cor Balmy!. I bet you're all thinking, "here we go again, Emily's getting drawn into another hype!"
I swatched them all on my hand and they felt amazing. I restricted myself and only picked up two. I picked up the shades Rosie Lea which is a gorgeous pinky purple and smells like sherbet and Currant Bun which is an amazing deep berry purple and smells like Blackcurrant. Currant Bun is perfect for the Autumn season.
The other shades in the collection are Adam & Eve which is a light baby pink, Trouble & Strife which is an orangey shade and Jam Jar which is a gorgeous red.
Just like the Baby Lips, they are cutely designed with bright writing and clear packaging, which I love so you can see the product. 
As you can see from the pictures, the outside of the product is the coloured balm and the core is filled with rich moisturising Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil and Shea Butter which makes them feel amazing on the lips! As for the colour payoff I am very pleasantly surprised. I thought they would be quite sheer but actually they give you just the right amount of tint to your lips.
They keep your lips feeling moisturized for a good couple of hours and even then the tint is still noticeable.
Overall I am really impressed with these and I would have to say I do prefer these to the Baby Lips.
Would I recommend you going to buy these? 100% You need at least one of these in your makeup collection :) I think I'm going to have to buy the rest of the shades!
