At first glance, you might think that this lipstick was personally made for the Wicked Witch of the West from Oz. You might be surprised, however, to find out that this lipstick magically changes to the perfect shade of pink!


Okay, maybe not magically. The lipstick reacts with the Alkaline in your pout and reacts to change the color to a beautiful shade.


Genie Lipstick (

According to Barry M.’s website:

“Genie lip paint is green… but magically turns your pout an ultra-long lasting personal shade of pink. It does this by adapting to the Alkaline in your lips. In other words, every person is different and every look is unique!”


This green lipstick actually glides on clear at first, and then slowly changes. Genie is an improved formulation of Barry M’s popular “Touch of Magic” lip paint.


You may be asking yourself: how exactly does this little lipstick change color? What is alkaline?


Alkaline is the name for anything that is on the higher end of the pH scale. Anything having a greater pH of seven — seven being the neutral part of the scale — is known as being alkaline or basic.


Depending on what your pH level is on your skin — which varies depending on your type of skin — is what color the lipstick ideally will change to. On average, however, skin is a little over five on the pH scale. That means our skin is more naturally acidic than alkaline.


Through some of the reviews, it seems that the color does not actually vary by person. That might be explained by the fact that our skin is usually more acidic than alkaline. Never the less, the reviews are consistently positive in that the lipstick itself is an amazing shade of pink, and many say it is very moisturizing!


If you are interested in purchasing this lipstick, you can get some on Barry M.’s website! It is a little less than €5.
