BarryM Dazzle Dust Review

Hi lovelies

If you know me then you know how obsessed I am with Barry M Glitter Dazzle Dust’s, I nearly have all the colours! When I first began experimenting with makeup I was searching for affordable glitter. Before coming across Barry M, I had considered buying Mac glitter pots as SO many you tubers were using them however I wasn’t working at the time therefore the pricing was way over my budget.

I was in Superdrug one day and came across the Barry M pots. I swatched the testers and fell in LOVE.

They are not advertised as glitters but ‘loose powder’ so not what I had in mind when I went out to buy glitter. However they do the trick pretty well as they seem to have reflective properties which makes them pop on the eyelids ❤

Why I love them

  • A reasonable size which makes it easy to store/travel with
  • Amazing variety of shades, from blue to pink to green and gold
  • Able to mix the colours to create custom colours
  • Colour pay off is stunning and with the help of a damp brush, it is even more beautiful
  • The price of the product is great, below £5
  • They are easy to find, usually available in Superdrug and Boots which are found pretty much anywhere

A wee makeup look I created with ‘Bronze’678

I used the product and applied it to the centre of my lids only whilst the inner and outer corners were much darker.

If you have them comment below what your thoughts are ❤

Smokey eyes with a pop of glitter

Hi lovelies,

A while back I purchased the Urban Decay Ultimate Basics Palette from John Lewis. I was a bit skeptical before buying it as I have a LOT of matte neutral eyeshadows however after reading lots of positive reviews, I was encouraged to go ahead and buy it.

Can I just say how GLAD I am that I went ahead it and bought it. The colours are so pigmented, really smooth which makes blending a dream and the packaging is amazing!


This has quickly become my go to eyeshadow palette for my eye makeup, believe me when I say I literally use this every time I wear any eye makeup!

The other day I was playing around with my Naked 2 Palette and ended up creating a black smokey eye with a hint of glitter.


  • From UD Ultimate Basics, I blended in ‘ Tempted’ & ‘Faith’.
  • Below my crease, I applied a little bit of ‘ Extra Bitter’.
  • I then began packing on ‘Black Jack’ and slowly built up the intensity. Every so often I went back in with a small amount of ‘Extra Bitter’ to add in more colour so it wasn’t only just black eyeshadow.
  • I created a winged eyeliner using the gel eyeliner by Collection.
  • To smoke out my lower lashline, I used a small pencil brush and applied ‘Extra Bitter’ and ‘Black Jack’.
  • After my lashionery lashes were applied in Airy Fairy , I felt there was something missing!
  • In my waterliner, I applied Royal Blue Eyeliner  by MUA and in the inner corners of my lids/lashline, I dabbed on Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal glitter eyeliner in Glamrock.




To be honest, this smokey eye can be used with any similar eyeshadows/different glitter eyeliners too!

Hope you enjoyed this post!

Take care XXX
