Barry M eye shadow palette review

Today I wanted to talk about my latest eye shadow palette, recently I was in the market for a new eye shadow palett. Yes I know I had more than enough but I wanted to try something a bit different and whilst browsing in Boots I stumbled across this palette which is one of 3 new eye shadow palettes that Barry M have recent bought out the other two are called Smokin hot and Glamour Puss which look like lovely palettes but they are really dark smokey colour which scare me a little so the Natural Glow palette was the only one for me.


As you can see the palette consists of 6 eye shadows and a blush in cardboard packaging. Firstly let me talk about the packaging, I really like the look of the packaging there is a really good size mirror and it has a magnetic closure. My biggest bug bear with the packaging it that the fact that it does come in cardboard it isn't going to last very long before it starts to get grubby and scuffed very easily. It is also pretty hard to get the product properly I don't know whether you can tell from the photo but there is a bit of a gap between the eyeshadow pan and the cardboard cut outs they don't it flush together it can make it quite annoying when you swipe your brush in the pan.

With the palette you also get two of the foam applicators but to be honest I would rather companies stopped doing this because I never use them I just end up binning. Does anybody use these?


I have done a few swatches so you can get an idea of the colour pay off. The lighter colours aren't that great you really have to work at it to get a decent amount of colour on your lids but the darker colours are much better and work really well in your crease.



In the above photo I have swatched the blush on the first finger but to be honest I would never use this as a blush the shade is all wrong for me and it barely shows up anyway. I would rather loose the blush and fill the gap with a couple more shadows.

This retails for around £6.49 and you can get it from all Barry M stands. It's the first thing I have tried from Barry M besides nail varnish and I would definitely look in to trying more from Barry M.
