New Barry M Liquid Chrome

As I said in my previous post, Barry M have released a bunch of new nail paints including these 4 Liquid Chrome finishes. These are very very similar to the original Barry M gold and silver foil finish nail paints. You can buy them directly from the Barry M website or from Superdrug for £3.99. They’ll be available at Boots from the 27th. Read More »

New AW17 Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine!

Barry M recently snuck out a load of new nail paints (11 to be exact… plus a peel-off basecoat) and I think it took a lot of us by surprise! There was no press release for these and I hadn’t seen anyone swatching them before I ordered (last Monday). When I found them, they were only available on the Barry M website but I think you can now find them in store and online at Superdrug – no sign of them at Boots yet though… I’m going to start with the 2 new Gelly Hi-Shine shades as these are what really kicked me off ‘collecting’ nail polish! I own all 50 now and most, but sadly not all, have been swatched on this blog (here). Read More »

Primark PS.. Insta Girl ‘Chrome’ (i.e. HOLO) Nail Lacquers

I saw a lot of people grabbing these polishes from Primark before I had a chance to but when I went into town last week I managed to grab them all (almost impossible apparently!). They look like great holographic polishes, so I have no idea why they named them chromes! They’ve had chromes before that they’ve called holo… *shakes head* Anyway, other than the incorrect labelling, there are 4 lovely colours to share with you today. Oh! They cost £3 each and take 2 coats for full coverage. Read More »

Collection Velvet Kisses

I’ve been picking up these Collection Velvet Kiss lip creams every time I’ve been popping into Boots. The good news is they are only £2.99 each (currently in the 3 for 2 offer!) and I now own all 6 shades. They have a doe-foot applicator and a creamy moisturising formula that isn’t drying at all on the lips. I think they’re meant to be a dupe for the NYX Professional Makeup Soft Matte lip creams – which I’ve never worn but from swatching them in store they seem to be very similar but I can’t make an accurate comparison, unfortunately! Read More »

Budget Friendly Lipkits: Primark & Barry M

Having reviewed Makeup Revolution Lipkits before (not a fan!) and lip kits becoming a ‘thing’, I’ve decided to have a look at a couple of other brands to see if I like any of the others. Recently, both Primark and Barry M have released their own lip kits so I grabbed a few. I actually wanted a couple of colours from Primark but I could only find one, sadly! But I have two from Barry M too.Read More »
