Barry M Natural Glow Eyeshadow & Blush Palette

Barry M Natural Glow Eyeshadow & Blush Palette

Its rare that a product excites me so much i literally run out and buy it, usually i pine over it for a while but with this i just had to make it mine as soon as i knew it was released in the shop. I don't know what it is about this palette that excited me so much but at £6.49, there was no way i was gonna pass up on giving it a try.

Barry M Natural Glow Eyeshadow & Blush Palette

There is three different palettes to choose from overall which all look really nice but i went with the Natural Glow one, as i felt it was the one I'd get more use out of with the shades. The palette has six eye shadows in total (two matte and four shimmer) - i love the range of colours in the palette; they are so versatile and could cater for day and night make-up looks and the eyeshadows themselves are really good quality, they are pigmented (the photo really does not do them justice), easy to blend and are long lasting too - i always wear eye primer so i can't judge on how long they last alone - but overall I'm pretty impressed with the the quality of the eyeshadows.

The blusher on the other hand I'm not crazy about, in the pan it looks like a really nice baby pink shade and like it would just be a really nice natural everyday kind of blush but sadly no, this is quite deceiving i applied this to my cheeks and ended up looking like a glitterball, as it left a really iridescent shimmery glow on my cheeks not what i look for in a blush. Now this would be a brilliant highlighter but it's supposed to be a blush so i don't quite see how they've worked that out?

To be honest though, as much as the blush lets the palette down i bought it for the eyeshadows more than the blush so I'm not too bothered about it. One thing that i really love about this product is the packaging; i love it. It looks so much nicer than you'd expect it to look like but it's so nice. Size wise it would be pretty good for travelling but it's not the most practical because it doesn't close properly it's just a lift up lid but other than that i love the packaging it's so simple and so sleek.

To be honest, the only main gripe i have with this other than the blush is that the shades don't have any names - why Barry M, why!? I just like it when they have names okay, it makes it so much easier trying to explain what eyeshadows I've use when i do face of the day posts.

Seriously though, i think this is a brilliant palette and for £6.49 you really can't go wrong. This is an all round great palette; great for people starting out in make-up and great for people like myself who have enough and just keep buying it. I thin this would also make a great stocking filler for Christmas.

Have you tried any of the Barry M Palettes?

  2. I love the look of Barry M's palettes, the eyeshadows in this all look lovely! Shame about the blush but like you say, it can be used as a highlighter instead :)

  6. I've never had any of the Barry M palettes, eye wise I've only ever really used their Dazzle Dust. I'm really tempted by this one though, even the blusher although I think I would end up using it on my eyes instead.

  7. The eyeshadows are stunning, especially the one on the left end! I have a definite feeling I'll be picking one of these up when I go shopping for glitter nail polish for the party season!

  9. For such a good price, it seems a great range of shades. Very similar to the more expensive Stila In The Light palette! Good job Barry M!
