So I was doing a bit of nosing about yesterday in Superdrug and spotted these beautiful Superdrug exclusive Barry M palettes and could not resist buying one of them. Also on a side note if you spend £7.00 or over on Barry M at the moment in Superdrug you get a free show girl mascara (your choice of volume or lengthen) worth £4.99.So I thought I’d do an overview of which ones are available and a mini first impressions review on the one I brought.
There are two limited edition ones that add on to the palette line with the neutral and smokey eye palettes that Barry M currently offer the two Limited Edition ones are Starry Eyed and Super Chic.
Starry Eyed runs along the theme of the others containing a blush along with 6 eyeshadows containing a mix of glittery shimmers and matte tones. A beautiful range of colours that I’m not sure what type of looks this is best for probably more date nights or nights out but with it been two in one its great to stuff in your bag for getting ready at a firends for a girls night out.
The second palette and the once I purchased is Super Chic, and unlike the others this contains a primer along with the eyeshadows. I just thought this was super cute and I’m trying to mix up my make up and add more colour opposed to sticking to neutrals and I just thought I was more likely to use this one opposed to the other limited edition.
I attempted to get some swatches but the lighting wasn’t great and my cameras still playing up sometimes. Some of the shades come up fairly pale but are buildable and workable and if you dampen your brush the colour pay of is stunning and still ultra workable the only colour that is disappointing is the first shade however, it is glitter and is great to add shimmer over the top and just dab a bit on. Basically the end shade is great to take a look from day to night with minimal effort.
I’ve been playing with it for a few days and it is worth the money I spent especially as it’s like nothing that I own. Yet I wish that some of the colours had better pigmentation yet you can easily work with it all and I’ve never used Barry M eyeshadows before opting more often for their amazing range of nail varnishes.
Have you tried any of the Barry M Superdrug exclusives?Love Gwenllian Branwen xox
