It’s been a while since I last did a blog post due to being in London all weekend so my apologies. I’ve been making big changes to my blog and social media if you haven’t already noticed. I now have a brand new Instagram account which I will be uploading to (@livewithkatieblog).
Now onto my review, I’ve recently discovered the Barry M palette by another blogger off Instagram (I can’t remember her name, sorry!) Anyway, I thought I’d invest in it to show you guys what it’s like. I purchased this palette from Boots. For £6.49 which I thought was an absolute bargain. You can also purchase it from pretty much any drug store or online; Superdrug, ASOS or Feel Unique. In the palette you get 10 matte shades some cool toned and some warm. These shades can create an awesome winter/autumn look which is the main reason why I purchased it.
The top two shades I found were not really pigmented as you can see in the picture above. HOWEVER, the rest of the shades I was extremely impressed by. They are very pigmented and a little goes a long way! Some of the colours I wouldn’t usually use but after trying them out you can create some really beautiful looks with them.
I wasn’t expecting much due to the fact it only cost not even £7 so I wouldn’t have been too bothered if it didn’t look amazing. The palette isn’t as good as something like the Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette which is my absolute favourite eye shadow palette of all time. But let’s be real it’s less than 3 quarters of the price of the Anastasia palette so it would never have been as good as that. But for it’s price it is amazing.
For £7 you can’t really go wrong and it’s a cute little palette to add to your collection. The palette is pretty small and compact so it’s so easy to carry around and use if you’re travelling as well. It also has a little compact mirror inside which isn’t something I would usually expect from a drugstore palette, this defiantly makes it look high end.
For me I would recommend this palette, it’s super cheap and you can create some beautiful autumn/winter eye shadow looks with it. This palette is definitely worth buying. I would rate this a 4/5 and would highly recommend buying it if you’re looking for a cheap eye shadow palette.
Let me know if you already have it or if you’re planning on buying it! What eye shadow look did you create?
