The glitzy season is here again, Christmas. Makeup is all about the drama, shine and sparkle. Personally, I love a bit of metallic shine. It really brightens my eyes and gives a more youthful look. Some time ago, I received a goodie bag after a brownbeauty make-up master class. Inside the goodie bag there was Barry M’s Deluxe Metals Eyeshadow Palette. I loved palette from the first. It had the core colours to go from day to night. Feeling festive, then rock on with the Barry M Deluxe Metals Eyeshadow Palette.
Barry M Deluxe Metals Eyeshadow Palette (RRP 7.49) contains 10 shimmery shadows. The colours range from metallic taupe to bronze and rose.
The package is sleek (with mirror) and would be easily portable in a handbag.
I’ve used some gorgeous palettes in the past, many of which had fall-out during application. In fact, I’d come to expect it. However, Barry M’s Deluxe Metals were a joy to use. They were velvety soft, easy to apply and blend. I applied them dry to primed eyelids for my day time look. During the evening I used a wet brush to apply one of the deeper shades. I wanted change into an evening look. The shadow went on with a smooth deep luxurious metallic finish. It felt, weightless and was easy to wear. I set the shadows with a setting spray. The colours and effect lasted for over four hours.
Barry M’s Deluxe Metals Eyeshadow Palette can be used on a wide range of complexions. On a pale complexion they could be used to create a smokey eye or nude look. Medium complexions should also be able to create smokey eye as well or shimmery eye effect for evening. Darker complexions are likely to achieve polished nude look with the palette. I mostly used the paler shades to open my eye area up for a natural bright eye.
The shadows paired with other palettes with bolder shade because they blend so well. When it comes to completing the full face, generous applications of mascara and/or lashes along with a bold lip or nude lip with create stunning looks. I loved my daytime look the best.
Where to buy
I was pleasantly surprised by the palette. Based on price point, comfort and brown beauty-friendliness, I would recommend Barry M’s Deluxe Metals Eyeshadow Palette.
