Mini Barry M Haul

I realised the other day that I haven't bought any Barry M products since I was a teenager, which is strange as Barry M has some really good stuff. I thought I'd test out a few things from the range once again, and I was very happy to see that right now when you spend £6 on Barry M products at Superdrug you receive a free Nail Varnish as well.

Barry M Nail Varnish in Xmas
I used a white base underneath the Nail Varnish to make it look even more seasonal and to enhance the glitter. Although I like it, the glitter was difficult to get out, which meant that I had to blot it on to get a good amount. 
Barry M Eyeshadow in E3 Tan £4.49

I fell instantly in love with this eyeshadow! It is absolutely gorgeous, and an amazing day and night shade. I haven't stopped wearing it since buying it. It's very pigmented with a gorgeous shimmer, and looks great by itself on the lid. I'm very impressed with it. I went for a bit of a safe shade at first to make sure I liked the formula, but now I know how creamy and long lasting it is, I am definitely going to purchase different shades!
Barry M Lip Paint in Pillar Box Red 121

I've always been a bit dubious about the Barry M lip paint collection. I'm not sure why, but I had it in my head that they were a little drying. However, after actually trying it, my opinion has completely changed. It's so creamy and moisturising, leaving my lips smooth and comfortable for the rest of the day. It's also very pigmented and vibrant, as evident from the picture. This shade is a very very bright red with slightly orangey undertones, I love it.

I'd love to hear any other recommendations from the Barry M line!
