Three new Barry M buys

Barry M new releases

First of all let me say this - Barry M are on of my favourite brands of all time and I've been buying religiously from them since I was 13 so believe me when I say it PAINS me to write an even slightly negative review of their products - Which is exactly what I had to do in this post *cries*.

So yeah, sorry Barry M (I really do love you though).

Illuminating strobe cream in 'Galactic' - £4.49
I've had the iced bronze strobe cream in my collection for quite some time now and I adore it (so subtle and easy to apply!) so when I saw Galactic I decided to give it a try. I was actually quite underwhelmed by it in the bullet but when applied to the skin it's really fucking blue. Definitely best that you use a light hand when applying it or you end up looking a bit like an alien (but if that's the look you're going for then you should buy this).

If you want a quick on the go highlighter then Barry M strobe creams are the one but maybe just go steady when using Galactic.

'Feature Length' mascara - £4.99
Barry M's 'That's How I Roll' is my all time favourite budget mascara so I had high hopes for the newest addition to the range, 'Feature Length'. I liked the brush as it's quite small and dainty but unfortunately the formula isn't the best, leaving me with clumpy lashes that don't look that much longer than they did before. 

It's a thumbs down from me sadly.

Molten Metals nail polish in 'Holographic Lights' - £3.99
I have a rose gold molten metal polish already and to be honest, it's not my fave. However when I saw Barry M were releasing a very on trend chrome style polish I bought it without hesitation 'cos I'm a beast who can't be stopped.

Not gunna lie, it's quite hard work to apply as it needs quite a few layers in order to look bold and eye catching but if you take your time and add a top coat it looks a-ma-azing. Much cheaper than a proper chrome manicure, although not as long lasting unfortunately.

Have you tried any of the latest Barry M releases? What did you think to them? Let me know if you got on better with them that I did!
