Review: Barry M - Natural Glow Shadow & Blush Palette

Hello! I have not posted a review of an eyeshadow in a while and I thought it would be good to talk about some eyeshadows again. Today I have for you review of this lovely Barry M palette called Natural Glow Shadow & Blush Palette. 

Packaging is very interesting as it's actually cardboard casing. This may not be most robust but still I had no problems with packaging. Palette comes with a mirror and two foam applicators. It includes six eyeshadows and one blush. Price for this one is at Ličila.si where I got mine, 10,95 euros. So not the cheapest available but also not too expensive.

The colours in this palette are neutral and really perfect for those who are afraid to experiment with more crazy colours and also perfect for those who love natural shades they can wear for every occasion. Two shades are matte and four are shimmery. The matte shades are very light, kinda pale creamy ones and the lightest one (second in a row) is suitable for a highlighter. The second one is a subtle gold shade and I really like it as it can be worn alone or as a base to other shimmery shades. The other fours shimmery shades are rose gold,  grey, golden and a charcoal shade. 

The pigmentation of these is pretty average and it did dissapoint me a bit, lasting power with eyeshadow base is for me about 6 hours. But this also depends on the eyeshadow primer I am using and also whether it is really hot or not, as in winter time I can extend wearing these shades to 10 hours while in summer time it can also be shorter, like 4 hours and I will already see changes to my makeup.

There is a bit of fallout during application, but you can prevent it with careful and slow application and also with a steady hand. Still with darker shades be careful as they tend to make your undereye area look really greyish if there is some fallout...

The blush shade is very lovely light pink, very spring like and perfect for lighter skin tones. It has subtle shimmer and gives a really lovely illuminating effect. I find the blush a bit too light for me, as I can barely see it on my skin, but it would suit well the really fair girls. Otheriwse the pigmentation of the blush is maybe even a bit better than that of the eyeshadows.

Hope this review was helpful to you! Thanks for reading!

Love, UniqaPoly

    1. Ja odtenki so zelo lepi, vendar me malo jezi ker niso ravno najboljše pigmentacije in ker se malo sipa ven in po obrazu, je treba biti previden pri nanosu, drugače pa res lepotica za vsakodnevne looke :)
