Favourite liquid lipsticks ives tried. Dry down really quickly, comfortable, easy to apply, last well, good price. I’ve tried Go To Nude, Minimalist and a metallic red which I can’t remember the name of and they were all lovely. I also tried the bright red one which I wore for a few hours and it did start to smudge slightly but I find it hard to find a bright red lipstick that doesn’t budge at all.


Eye Shadow -Barry M -Dazzle Dust

I think I'm always going to have a soft spot for dazzle dust, as it was a staple in my tween years in the early 2000s when there was glitter in everything - lip gloss, eyeliner, nail polish, butterfly hair clips, jelly sandals, stick on body jewels and temporary tattoos,t-shirt logos, absolutely everything sold in Claire's Accessorites... The glitter fever was intense! And Barry M's dazzle dust was everywhere, with a plethora of colours you can't get any more. Nearly every girl I knew had at least one, as they were cheap and very much pocket-money friendly.

I used to slap this on my eyelids with abandon, whether it was a light pastel or a shocking green, confident that I was soooo trendy LOL! It looked super intense when first applied, but after a few hours there'd be more on my cheeks than my eyes. Teenage me didn't do eye primers, sadly.

These are still around, albeit with a much smaller shade range than in their heyday. I got a white and gold glitter pot the other day, mostly because of a recent nostalgia streak in my life more than any memories of it being a good product. In fairness, it's very finely milled so it still has its uses but it absolutely needs to bind to something underneath, otherwise it reaches equilibrium on your face and achieves an even scattering of glitter absolutely everywhere. OK so that's a huge exaggeration but seriously, you'll need a good primer on your eyelid and put the glitter on it before it dries. You can use it to convert matte lipsticks to metallic/holographic but again, only stays on if applied on wet liquid lipstick before it's dry, and even then it comes off fairly quickly. These days, I can't wear anything super glittery as it doesn't suit me but even if it did this wouldn't be my first choice of glitter or foil effect eyeshadow.


Polishes -Barry M -Molten Metal - Holographic Lights

on 6/18/2018 9:44:00 AM

Holographic Lights is part of Barry M's Molten Metal collection - I can't find info for if this is a permanent collection, or not. The shade is a slightly dusty mid-tone silver, filled with linear holographic shimmer. It is actually pigmented enough to be a standard two coater, but I've noticed a teensy bit of dragging on some fingers, so need a third coat to fully even the finish out - don't apply overly thin coats, as the dragging was more noticeable when I used thinner coats. The formula dries quickly, and I've not experienced any staining. The polish is hard wearing, and using my usual topcoat doesn't dull the holo shimmer.

The colour is pretty, the formula is very nice for a mainstream drugstore brand and the price is fantastic, however I've clicked no for rebuy, as mainstream brands like China Glaze, Color Club and Nails INC have silver linear holos in their ranges, and the holo shimmer in those brands is stronger. And of course, in the world of indie polishes this type of silver holo is nothing new, so for me Holographic Lights was a little bit "you're late to the party". If you don't own a similar shade, then this is well worth considering since it is cheap (£3.99!) and easier to get then the above mentioned brands in the UK/Europe.


Contour -Barry M -Chisel cheeks contour kit

on 6/17/2018 1:05:00 AM

I wanted a stick product to make my morning routine quicker. I already owned the Barry m strobe stick which was such a good product and felt that this would be of good quality . The product only has one Color which I was hesitant to buy as it looked like cocoa brown and on you tube the Barry m model was very dark ( I am nc30). I knew that the highlight shade would probably be redundant and probably used only on my neck which was darker than my face which I was fine with . I tried to use the contour stick as a bronzer / contour and could never get it right . I now use it as a browning cheek blusher and surprisingly I look good , gives me a healthy natural flush , no strange orange , no shimmer / glitter , easy to manage and gives me a glow on my combi skin . Not within my expectations at all . Now I have a find a good use for the very white highlighter
