Get Up & Glow

Monday, 28 March 2016

As I have recently switched over to cruelty free, I've been on the lookout for new products to try out. I've never really been too sure about Barry M's eye shadows but I do love their contour palette, so I was excited to give this a go! 

I've read mixed reviews online about this palette and I wasn't sure what to expect. 
It contains a bronzer, three blushers and a highlighter, so it's ideal for travelling. I absolutely adore the pink packaging and how lightweight it is. I've used it nearly every day for the past two weeks and overall I really like it. 

The bronzer looks beautiful on the skin and blends really well. It does appear to have a shimmer to it, but when applied it doesn't show up, so I also lightly contoured with it. It looked very natural and not muddy at all, so I was very impressed! 

The blushers again blend well and look very natural and pretty. My favourite out of all three is the pale light pink shade. It looks very feminine and just perfect for spring, so don't be put off by the lack of pigment!

Unfortunately I was slightly disappointed with the highlighter. After applying the bronzer and blusher I had high hopes! It didn't really show up on my skin as a highlight and worked better combining it with a blusher. That being said I do like my highlight to be quite intense and noticeable, so if you wanted a very natural shimmer or glow then it would probably work better!
