This particular colour was a recommendation from London MakeUp Girl and Mookie on the Bench. Punky Pink #145 is a bright fuschia pink, I believe it's quite similar to Tom Ford Pure Pink. I also think it's quite similar to MAC Girl About Town but I don't find it as neon bright (I no longer have to it to make a direct comparison unfortunately). I'm very pleased I tried this lipstick, not only for the colour but for the fact that it dispelled my personal worry that Barry M lipsticks wouldn't be any good. This is a creamy formula, it's comfortable to wear though not too slippy and drying of the lips is minimal. Like other similar colours it does stain my lips by the end of the day.
Like some of the other bold lipsticks, it has been tricky to capture the colour accurately. The bullet is a little darker and more fuschia than it looks in the daylight photo. The colour is more accurate in the photos with flash.
I'm very pleased to have bought this lipstick. It's brightening and fun to wear without me feeling out of my comfort zone. At £4.49 it's an inexpensive way to try something new.
