I'll admit I didn't know much about the cosmetics brand Barry M until quite recently, when I was sent a lovely package consisting of three Barry M Gelly Nail Paints* and a gorgeous Get Up & Glow palette*. Before that, I had only encountered Barry M through the Bloggers United AU Adelaide Event last year, as one of their nail paints had been included in our goodie bags as attendees.
Barry M is an affordable British colour cosmetics brand that is available exclusively in Big W stores. Founded in 1982 by Barry Mero, the brand is cruelty free, and boasts on trend colours at great prices ($6.95 - $24.95)
I thought I'd have a play with my Barry M goodies and show you a few manicures using the Gelly Nail Paint! These come in 21 different shades and have a really glossy finish. Also, I love that the colours are totally different from what I usually wear, so it really pushed my boundaries slicking these on. I'm glad I did, though!
Green Berry Hi Shine Gelly Nail Paint
I applied two coats of this bright minty green nail paint and didn't bother with a top coat as it was already pretty shiny.
Rose Hip and Huckleberry Hi Shine Gelly Nail Paint
Again, I applied two coats of these pretty pastel shades, with Huckleberry on the accent nail and Rose Hip on the other fingers. It was a bit patchy on the first coat, but thankfully the second coat applied evenly and smoothed everything out.
Get Up & Glow Bronzer, Blusher & Highlighter Palette
Here's a look at the gorgeous Get Up & Glow Bronzer, Blusher & Highlighter Palette. The bronzer is shimmery and is a bit too dark for my skintone, but I've been loving the blusher shades and have been using the top centre one every day. This multi-purpose palette would be amazing for trips away and retails for only $17.75 at Big W. It features a mirror within the lid, which closes securely with an inbuilt magnetic strip. The pink lightbulb design packaging is super-cute, too!
