The Best of Barry M cosmetics

All the glitters. So Barry M are a mid priced cruelty free cosmetics company and for all my UK friends, can be found amongst the shelves at Boots. They are mostly pitched to a younger demographic but don’t let that put you off, this Mama is down with the kids lol.

Barry M are well known for their beloved dazzle dust pots (eye shadow pigment pots) amongst other things. So very quickly i’m going to show you a few of my favourite must haves and colour loves.

First up we have Barry M  Lip Lacquer crayons. They have been around since 2010 (I believe) and are still a staple quick fix in my make-up bag. They are a high gloss finish and real easy to apply. And yes… the lacquer goes all the way to the end of the pencil, unlike other brands. (Meaning more for your money.) Plus this is one of the few companies who have a ‘blue pearl’ colour in their range. (Clear colour with a blue pearl tinge) Which i LOVE.


Next up are the Dazzle dust post. These are incredible! Available in a few hundred shades (I kid you not) Some pastel, some metallic, you are bound to find a colour and finish to fit any look! I cannot rate these enough, and with a eye primer, these powders last all day! Barry M also sell these cute quads too. (Hard pressed shadow) Offering quite the palette for standout eyes.


So the next photo includes blushers, brow kits and  Illuminating Strobe Cream! Which has been a ‘this year must have smash’ everywhere. the strobe stick is a great highlighter, but I like it most because on its own with a quick brush across your cheeks.. you get the beautiful dewy English Rose look!!

I must give a quick shout out for the brow kits too. Having tried every damn brow kit going, this one does the job perfectly. You get your powder to fill in your brows, a coloured wax to blend and fix. And yes this tames the strays too, keeping them in place. And a white highlighter. These kits come in three shades and the mid brown is warm enough to cover those beautiful red heads out there. Very nice product!


Now I wouldn’t have done this company justice if I didn’t mention the array of polish available. I’m not a massive nail painter lol, so don’t have the biggest collection. However the range of colours and finishes are once again extensive. I love the Jelly Pastels. But their coconut oil range are selling like wildfire! And for the metal heads.. the metallic range are equally as popular!


So there you are. Find a little of what you love, and paint your face happy. Enjoy.
