Barry M Natural Glow Palette Review







I've never really tried many of Barry M's make-up products but I'm a huge fan of their nail polishes so I was intrigued when they released 3 different eye and cheek palettes. The palettes aim to 'cater to every occasion and every outfit'. Natural Glow, Smokin' Hot and Glamour Puss allow you to each create a certain look. I knew that Natural Glow was going to be the one I would buy as it's the most wearable and I will get the most usage out of the shades in it. The other two look gorgeous though!

The packaging is right up my street as its simple, neutral and has a perfectly sized mirror in the lid. Inside the palette are 6 eyeshadows, 1 blush and 2 foam applicators. The palette itself consists of very neutral colours, many of these shades are similar to those in the Naked palette which is a much more expensive alternative.
I've found myself using the darker metallic colours much more as they are really beautiful and are more pigmented than the lighter colours which really need to be built up to achieve a noticeable colour.

The blush won't be everyone's taste but I actually think it's a really sweet pink and gives a really natural blush on the cheeks when applied. Although I won't use the blush too much it is handy having it in the eyeshadow palette as its so accessible. 

If the lighter eye-shadows in the palette were slightly more pigmented I would be singing this palettes praise but sadly they really let down this otherwise lovely palette.

Have you tried any of the Barry M Palettes yet?
