Enter our amazing competition and create a Barry M lip paint - closing date 28 November 2011

To celebrate the partnership between Now and Barry M, we’re giving you the chance to devise your own lip paint colour and name it.

One lucky winner will get to create a new colour and name the product, which will be sold exclusively online at www.barrym.co.uk.

You’ll be given the first sample of the lip paint, which will feature on the Barry M website. Plus bragging rights that it’s your own creation.

All we ask is that you enter the name of the lipstick plus a picture of your colour.

How to enter

Via Twitter tagging @nowmag – with the hash tag #LippaintMeNow

Or email Nowfacebook@ipcmedia.com with your picture and colour name along with your Twitter name for us to Tweet you.

The pic can be from anything from a car to a dress – it just needs to be a flat colour without pattern.

Think about that perfect lipstick colour that you always wanted and couldn’t find. Now you have the chance to create it and the potential of seeing it feature on thousands of lips!
