Not everyone likes Glitter on the lips but I do! This Barry M Lipgloss in Strawberry Glitter caught my eye because it is pure glitter: Its the kind of thing that could really work on top of a lipstick, especially a matte lipstick in a similar colour. I’ve got it on here by itself: Its not superfine glitter you understand – its more party, in your face glitter but I kind of like it, its […]
Its the party season! Well not for me. I avoid Christmas parties like the plague. But if I did show up to parties, I would would be dunking myself in glitter so I sparkled like a disco ball. I was sent one of these Barry M Lash Glitters to try, rather apt for Xmas: This blue is a lovely electric blue shade. It comes in a handy pen thing rather than traditional mascara form: This […]
I was intended to give this cute little Barry M Set from Superdrug to my cousin (aged 15 and totally into make up at the moment) but then I realised, as she used the ‘yeah-wotever’ line on me again, she was an ungrateful little brat so decided to try it out myself instead. That is my punishment style. (Its ok baby! I’m going out to get you another one, ok? Don’t me mad with me!) […]
Barry M recently launched a matte version of their creamy and very soft eye crayons: I am already a fan of the super soft metallic eye pencils, when I was sent two of the new matte textures to try out in a green and blue: I like the fact they are matte but bright at the same time. I find mattes for the eyes *snooorreeee* most of the time, so a pop of colour helps….
The nice people at Barry M sent me one of their new blushers to try – there are 6 in the range and I chose Apricot since I love my peaches. The other shades are quite self explanatory colours – Pink Orchid (lightest pink), Rose, Strawberry, Terracotta and Raspberry. Barry M make great loose eyeshadows and lipsticks, especially for the price. Are they any good at blush? Firstly – Packaging Shall we just get the […]
Who doesn’t love some lovely swatches? So to get through this Tuesday here are some lip swatches of Barry M’s newest additions (Pinks)… I am impressed by the Barry M Lipsticks, they remind me of Illamasqua and Nars Semi Matte lip colours but are much more affordable at £4.25. 1. Cerise Pink – the darkest of the new shades, a dark rich pink
Another one of the Barry M Spring Colours is Parrot Green! Barry M Dazzle Dusts cost £3.95 from Boots and Superdrug. You know I LOVE greens. This is a super hot green! EOTD: I used Barry M’s Parrot Green Dazzle Dust as the main colour, Barry M Teal DD on the inner corner, Illamasqua Pigment in Fervent wet as a liner, Jill Stuart Champange Gold Eye Jelly as a highlight and Nars Kaliste Eyeliner Pencil […]
Barry M dazzle dusts are a really good alternative to MAC Pigments – I have both (about 60 MAC piggies) and I generally find Barry M less messy to work with (finer textured generally speaking). They also cost £4.50 and Boots tend to have 3 for 2 or special offers on from time to time. There are 6 new colours for Spring (I got Parrot Green, the most stunning true green later on – will […]
