A while ago, I went through a loose powder eyeshadow phase. I actually still enjoy using loose powder eyeshadow although its not something many like due to the fussiness. I’ve found that for high shimmer, nothing beats loose powder eyeshadow. It was during this phase that I discovered Barry M Cosmetics and the wonderful dazzling Barry M Dazzle Dusts.
Barry M is a brand from the UK and found in Boots and Superdrug pharmacies (at hefty discounts sometimes). I was previously told it was also available in Topshop but I’m not sure if it still is anymore. When I was getting people to get it for me, it was quite hard to find to my surprise. It might now be easier.
Anyway, Dazzle Dusts are super shimmery loose powder eyeshadows that pack a punch if shimmer’s your thing. They come in tiny little glass pots (I’m serious – its tiny!) and I always use my finger to apply because it picks up the product better. I saw that the swatches on the Barry M website look quite different from the actual product, so here’s a picture of how my Dazzle Dusts look. A lovely friend got most of them for me from London and dropped them off here in KL on her way home to Australia – I tell you, this is truly what globalization is all about! 😀 Read on for colours and swatches.
