I was very lucky to have been invited to the Barry M event in Morecambe where everything has been organised to launch the new Barry M eyeshadows: 'quite warm' Greggs pasties to tantalise our buds and free Michael Jackson in the background. For you today, I've got exclusive high resolution professional photographs and a video of Barry M himself talking about the eyeshadows in question. I'll end the sarcasm now, shall I? It was totally at random, while looking for Cappuccino Nail Polish from Barry M that I discovered that Bazza released 12 single eyeshadows and a 3 for 2 promotion on all eye products for the occasion.
I am going to be honest, I don't know what the name of this collection is or if it has a name. I am not quite sure the theme is either but no doubt I will find out more background information when the official product photos come out on Facebook and Twitter. The eyeshadows are housed individually in a flashy silver leopard print trim squared case. Testers have a flower embossed on the shadows but the real deal is smooth and have no flowers on them.
After a 'quick' play with the testers in the shop (I'll pretend I didn't spend ages trying to fit 12 shadows on my hand and plotting about the placement of them) I have found the shadows to be lovely and soft to play with. In my eyes the finish is shimmery for all the shadows (apart from Dark Brown) but not disco ball shimmery like some urban decay infamous numbers. Pigmentation is quite good although I have found the blue and the purple needed a heavier hand for the colour to show. Due to the soft nature of the shadows I experienced some fair amount of fall out but nothing too traumatizing.
I think Barry M did an amazing job at creating the colours. The green is a little too muted for me but this in turn makes it more wearable. The bronze and the dark gold caught my immediately but it's the delightfully matte brown which stole my heart.
Now this is when I drop the news about the price. Each shadow is sold at £4.49. I think they are worth that price range and are pretty good quality but I am a bit reticent to pay that price. The £1 dark brown from MUA is nowhere near as smooth and lovely to play with as the dark brown from Barrym but it does the job. Maybe I am just being a tight cow.
What do you think? Will you be checking out the new Barry M eyeshadows?
