Review: Barry M Dazzle Dusts

I mentioned earlier in my retail therapy session that I went to Boots as well as Lush and these two are what I got.

These are the Barry M Dazzle Dusts in Mushroom (No. 51) and Chocolate (No.53). They were on special offer, two for £6.99. This is a really good deal as they are usually £4.40 each.

 They are the first Dazzle Dusts i've ever bought for myself, I usually don't buy drugstore eyeshadows for myself as I generally find they are not as good quality as more high end brands. Drugstore eyeshadows are often a chalky consistency with poor colour pay off. That said, these are not like that. These have a silky smooth formula and an amazing colour pay off. They come in a huge variety of shades, which are best showcased here on the actual BarryM Cosmetics website. The best thing about them for me is that they blend so well, with minimum effort, both together and with other products from different brands. I have taken some close up swatches so you can see the colours in more detail, these are just swatched with my fingers on the back of my bare hand, no primer or anything like that.

Both of these colours are really great to just put all over the lid with some black eyeliner and mascara for a quick, gorgeous eye look. Make sure you use a primer underneath to ensure longevity throughout the whole day and/or night.

If you are in the UK, you will find BarryM at most Superdrugs and a lot of the larger Boots stores. There  are sometimes 3 for 2 offers on, so make sure to take advantage of these offers. If you need to order online, the shipping costs are £1.95 for orders up to £20.00 and any orders over £20.00 the shipping costs increase to £2.95. I think the special offers and no shipping costs make it more worthwhile to go into a shop rather than order online.

Although BarryM are a UK based company they do offer worldwide International Shipping. At the moment it is £5.00 flat rate to Europe and £8.00 flat rate to countries outside of Europe.

Also, before ordering, make sure you check google for any discount or promotional codes going round. You can often get money off or a free product with your order if you just google 'BarryM promotional codes'.

I hope this review was helpful to you, I think they are definitely worth the money and a good way to build up your collection of colours without spending fortunes. If you have any 'must have' colours I should get, leave them in the comments below, I can always be persuaded to buy more makeup. Lol!


  1. You never need pursuading to buy more make-up!! xxxx

  2. I wish there was a Boots here where I live in New York. We have Lumene, which does not seem as exciting as Boots... I will have to search for one... Anyways i love your blog and reviews!! Thanks for all the insight!!

  3. I am so glad you are blogging! I just got snow fairy from Lush and I recon it smells like jelly babies. I wish I could go shopping with you girl :)
