Barry M is one of my favourite UK brands. Their products are so inexpensive, yet the quality is amazing and consistent so you don’t have to worry that what you’re interested in trying next will disappoint you. I also like that their products come in a huge selection of shades that will suit every skin tone and taste, and all have good color payoff, which is something you don’t often come across at this price range. Whatever you decide to try from Barry M, you can’t go wrong, but if you don’t know where to start, these products are a great introduction to the brand:
The Dazzle Dusts are my favourite ever product from Barry M. These cute little pots are full to the brim with shimmering loose powder eyeshadows in any color you can think of. There are actually more than 70 permanent shades available! They have good color payoff and apply smoothly on the lids, although, like with all loose eyeshadows, some fallout can occur. Most of the shades are versatile and can be used on the face, lips and nails too. And the best part? Each pot costs only £4.59!
The Nail Paints are also available in lots of colorful and neutral shades (there are more than 50 available!) and with different finishes: pearl, matte and shimmery. There really is something for everyone! y have good color payoff so you rarely need more than 2 coats, apply like a dream (no streaks nor bubbles) and dry really quickly too. The price? £2.99 each!
Barry M Blushers are not for the faint of heart. This stuff is insanely pigmented so you need to be careful when you apply them, especially if you have fair skin, or you’ll risk looking like a clown. But if applied with a light hand, they provide a lovely and healthy flush to the cheeks that lasts for hours. The powder is finely-milled, goes on smoothly and blends easily. There are 8 shades to choose from, each one retailing at £4.59.
The Lip Paints are available in over 30 shades ranging from softly shimmering pastels to vibrant colours. They have a lovely creamy texture that glides on smoothly and doesn’t dry lips. Color payoff is really good and you get an opaque coat of color with only one swipe. The packaging is pretty elegant too, yet each tube is only £4.49!
Lip Gloss Wands
Available in 10 shades, each one infused with a different and lovely scent. They have a semi-opaque color payoff, a light and non-sticky texture and the packaging is really pretty. If you’re looking for a gloss that gives some color to your lips without going over the top and that doesn’t break the bank, this is it. Each shade retails at £4.25.
