My top 5 Barry M products

Happy Sunday all!! Have a nice weekend? Adryen and I watched Tangled on Friday night (ok, so we might be a teensy bit older than the targeted audience but it was great!) and then walked Bernard up Cavehill today. Fairly lazy weekend overall but I reckon those are the best kind :)

As I was getting ready on Friday I realised that 4 of the makeup products I’d used were by Barry M, which is what inspired this post. I love brands that do loads of reliable goodies, that way you aren’t worried that your next purchase from the range will be a dud that’ll end up lying in the bottom of a drawer after two uses!

So in no particular order these are my favourite Barry M products
Dazzle Dusts. These have been a firm favourite of mine for years! I adore the selection of colours available – there have been times when I’ve bought new shoes and actually brought them into Boots to hold next to the Dazzle Dusts to see if I can get a colour to match. Havent been let down yet :)
Lip Paint (dunno why they're called lip paint when they're just regular lipsticks?) The only thing I don’t like about these is the packaging, it’s that horrible rubberish material that attracts dirt and ends up looking tatty really quickly. Other than that they’re amazing. As you can see I've worn one down into the most awkward flat-topped shape!
Kohl pencil in white. I use this on my waterline and it really brightens up my eyes. I know a lot of makeup artists say you should use a pinkish colour instead of a stark white as it doesn’t look natural but I love the white so I’m happy to stick with this!
Lip Gloss. These look good, smell sensational, last well, have a nice applicator and only cost £4.49. Not bad at all
Foundation Creme. This one came as a bit of a surprise. I had incredibly low expectations because the packaging is horrible and the cream actually looked like it had “separated” in the container – you could see a white liquid and a pale brown liquid. But I was so intrigued as I’d never tried a Barry M foundation that I bought it anyway. After a good shake the product was one colour (always a good start I reckon!) and it looks fantastic on. The coverage is medium, long lasting and very natural. Definitely recommend giving this a try if you haven’t already! ♥

Ooh I love the sound of the foundation, must pick it up next time I'm in boots :) I love their lip glosses too and my fave has to be their nail varnishes, or nail paints as they call them :)

You have got to love Barry M, great selection and cheap enough to want to buy them all! :) I love the dazzle dust and the lipglosses, but I've never thought to try the foundation. Sounds like it's worth a try though :)

Thanks for all your lovely comments! Plesed to see so many people like Barry M as much as I do :)

Stacey the gloss on the right is number 12. It might be like the Dazzle Dusts where there's a name on the thingy in the shop but not on the packaging. I always find that slightly annoying!
