barry m dazzle dust


I love glitter. I am instantly drawn to it, I don't know what it is about glitter but when I see it on something I am guaranteed to love it but there's one thing about it that makes me stay clear of the glitter even though it is something I adore and it is the mess it creates. I love all of the glitter make up you can purchase from Urban Decay but I'm afraid it wouldn't only create a mess but I don't think it would go down well with my rather sensitive skin. I really wanted to add something to my make up collection that wasn't your typical glittery eyeshadow and I had my eye on a pigment. Yes I know what you're thinking a pigment is super messy and it is but the urge to purchase one over ruled my sensible mindset.

 Now I was faced with the issue of where to purchase the pigment. I knew that Mac had a great range of pigments but like usual I wasn't willing to part with my money for something I have never even tried before which I could hate and I wasn't prepared to take the risk. I went on the look out for a cheaper product that was available in your average drugstore but this task proved to a lot difficult than I expected. I had thought that a pigment would have been easily got in a drugstore but there was barely one the only one I came across was a Barry M range which had a small selection of pigments. I chose a light brown, coppery shade.

It came in a small pot as you can see and is very messy. The best thing about this pigment is little is required and a small amount will go along way. I wasn't quite sure how to apply it so I used a flat top brush and applied it gently all over my lid and blended with a fluffy brush. I was amazed by the finish it looked super shiny and slightly wet looking which I loved. I did experience quite a bit of dropout but that was easily resolved but apart from that it lastly a long time and looked so beautiful on the eyes that no other eyeshadow was required. Barry m have really worked wonders on this product and I feel that not a lot of people are aware of it so next time you pop into Boots or Superdrug you may want to pick up this little beauty!

Do you know of any other drugstore pigments?

  2. This shade looks so pretty! I haven't tried any pigments either, but they look so pretty when people use them in tutorials. I really want to try one, but like you, I wouldn't want to part with much money for an expensive brand.

  7. I have never used a pigment before (mostly because you can´t get good ones in a drugstore range if you find any at all). I will give this a try though and if I am happy, I might stumble into a Mac store some time.

  9. I've wanted to try a pigment for a while now, but as you say I just can't get myself to buy one from MAC. I've been thinking about ordering one from Makeup Revolution - I've read that they are lovely as well.
    But I might just pop into Boots and check this one out :) lovely review!
