I was recently contacted by Barry M to try a few picks of their makeup range as believe it or not I had not dabbled with Barry M makeup before! I was sent a Lip gloss, Eye Dazzle Dust and Lip Crayon to play with and I thought the shades were very festive so would be perfect for Christmas!
First of all is the Dazzle Dust in 'Dark Green' (£4.59) which is a lovely little pot and a very good dupe to the MAC pigments. This is a lovely shimmery green - very festive and versatile that you could mix with darker colours to create a nice smokey dark green eye. The only thing I will say are these Dazzle Dusts are extremely messy and you need to be careful when using them. I would suggest placing the pot on a piece of paper as as soon as you unscrew the lid the dust goes everywhere!
Lip Gloss Wand (£4.49) in the shade 'Strawberry Milkshake' this smells like strawberry ice cream and is a lovely baby pink milky colour. The star item for me being the Lip Crayon in 'Cherry Red' (£4.99) which is a lovely bright pinky red with glitter and is a cross between a lipstick and a lip gloss but in a handy chunky crayon. It is highly pigmented and a lovely non-sticky texture and very similar to a YSL Golden Gloss in Vojaa that I have also been loving recently. It was very difficult to capture on camera how nice it is! The Cherry Red Lip Crayon and the Dark Green Shimmery Dazzle Dust are perfect partners for all the festive parties this season!

Barry M makeup is available Boots.com and Superdrug and would make a great gift for those on a budget - an idea being you could create your own makeup set, select a few Barry M items, wrap in tissue paper and place in a nice gift box. What are your favourite Barry M pieces?
