I have gone a little Barry M crazy in the last few days and managed to buy all their new Autumn/Winter collections... Silks, Aquariums and Glitteratis, got the lot! So expect a few swatch posts over the coming few days LOL! First up I'm going to share the stunning new silks, so much nicer than the Spring/Summer shades and AMAZING with topcoat...
This is the gorgeous Poppy, a pinkish-red polish with a shimmer of magenta/bright red. Two coats with no coat or undies hahaha!
Below is this same polish coming alive with a topcoat...
Now for Forest, a deep teal base with blue shimmer. This one took three coats for full tip coverage and again no coat or undies :)
Below, with topcoat - Transformed!
Last up is Orchid, a gorgeous deep purple with bright purple shimmery goodness. This also took three coats and wouldn't have gone amiss with a fourth but same deal on the rest of application.
Again, below with topcoat... Stunning!
The formula of the red seemed much superior to the other two for some reason, but overall I was happy to do the required number of coats because the result is so worth it. Being silks, they also dried in super-fast time so no time waiting between coats... And what a difference a topcoat makes!
Barry M: Poppy, Forest, Orchid, Showgirl Volumising Mascara
I picked these ones up in Superdrug where if you spend £7.00 on Barry M beauty you receive a free volumising or lengthening mascara! Perfect for me because my Lash Vegas (which I loved) just ran out!
