    What have you tried from Barry M? What did you think about it?
    I haven't tried anything yet, but there are so much I want to try!

    Barry M has had a stand in the Topshop flagship store on Oxford Street in London for as long as I can remember.. I haven't tried a lot.. I have some loose eyeshadow powders which are okay..

    I've only used the nail polishes and lipstick and think they are good.

    The nail polishes are pretty good. Especially if you are just wanting to try a colour you wouldn't normally as they are v. cheap. I have a gittery eyeliner, which smudges ridiculously easily and ends up everywhere.

    Another thumbs up for the nail polishes! I haven't tried anything else but definitely will do.

    The dazzle dusts (eye shadows) are amazing! So shiny and strongly pigmented, they last as well

    I have used the nail polish's, I'm wearing the Coral one now. It chips pretty easily though, even with 2 coats but its so cheap and the colours are great!
    I have also used the dazzle dusts which are really good! Also there is usually offers on Barry M at like boots or superdrug, such as 3 dazzle dust's for £10!

    I love the dazzle dust. Similar to MAC pigment but much cheaper, and it's not like you need to use much to get a good effect.

    I mainly use the nail varnishes, but I have a lipstick too.

    Oh yeah I have some dazzle dusts too. I don;t use them that often but they are pretty good. If you use a topcoat the nail varnish isn't too bad for chipping.

    Me too, Dazzle dusts are so exciting! I love getting them in summer when I know I'll be wearing lots of different brights!

    I love their nail polishes, there are so many interesting colours.

    I don't think I am the right one to comment on their dazzle dusts, I have only tried one, a bright yellow but I was very disappointed. The pigment wasn't strong at all so what looked in the box like a very vibrant colour barely wasn't visible on the face.

    But their lipsticks are good too, I bought a pink glittery lipstick that just are amazing.

    I'm really annoyed that I live in a country that doesn't sell them, but thanks for the link, it is possible to buy their products online.

    Agree with you The Ida - um Urban Decay Primer potion or a Mac paint pot as a base... or you could spritz the brush with Fix + before dipping in pigment making it more vibrant on application..

    I am impressed with the pigmentation of their lip paints, they have some gorgeous colors

    I have never tried any of their lip products, that might be a next month treat.

    The nail polishes are great for interesting colours at a great price. I use #150 Red Glitter to give my toes some showgirl glamour.

    I didn't know they had a glittery one! Ooooh. I use the grey one a lot, always gets compliments.

    I love the nail polishes, they're so cheap and in my experience last quite well without chipping :D

    Got 2 for £5 a couple of weeks ago, bright pink and a coral colour :heart:
