Hey guys! Hope you’re all well and having a lovely Autumn. It’s mid season now I think it’s a nice time to share with you my thoughts on this cute eyeshadow palette I picked up a couple of weeks ago.
It’s the Barry M Fall in Love Eyeshadow Palette. It’s a bargain at £6.49. It’s not a natural palette and does contain talc and dimethicone, but although I love all natural products, I’m happy to use ones that aren’t in certain circumstances… this palette is both Vegan & Cruelty Free. It’s a very affordable drugstore brand and can be picked up at Superdrug & Boots in the UK.
These are the 10 beautiful warm and cool toned muted matte shades in the palette…
When this launched a few weeks ago I was dying to hold of it, but my local stores got their launch stock late and then it was constantly sold out. I finally managed to get it and give it a try.
The shades themselves are decently pigmented and even throughout the palette. They’re easily blendable as well as buildable. The colours give me Anastasia Subculture vibes but without the price tag or formula issues of that palette. And possibly a bit more wearable / user friendly. Though there is a little kick up in the pan it’s nothing crazy. There is a gorgeous mix of pale mattes, transistion shades, bold and dark shades and you really can do a lot with the palette. It’s compact and light as well, great for in your makeup bag on the go or for travel. I’ve only ever tried Barry M nail polish and eye / lip liners before and I’m impressed by the quality of these eyeshadows.
These are the shade swatches on my skin which is fair to light with a pinkish undertone…
I follow a lovely makeup artist on YouTube, BellaIzzy Makeup and she is @bellaizzyx on Instagram. Izzy and I have been chatting about this palette and both ended up buying the same week after us trying to win it for each other in giveaways. Izzy gave her first impressions on this palette in here video here, and does a lovely look. You should all go watch and follow her because she’s lovely and talented, and also really helpful. I’ll also link any other looks she does with the palette so you can see them in action, since I’m only a makeup addict, not an artist! 😊😊😊
Future me here! My girl Izzy did another 4 gorgeous looks with this palette. Click here to watch that video and don’t forget to like and subscribe because she’s an absolute gem!
To round up, I think this palette is great quality and value, versatile and portable, with on trend, autumn appropriate shades. I think it would be flattering on most skin tones and undertones and the trendy colours will be loved by the teen and tween market, but also work well on more mature eyes like mine, especially hooded eyes because the shades are matte. It will also make the perfect stocking filler and I’ve also now picked one up for my fifteen year old stepdaughter who is just getting into makeup.
Have you got this palette? What do you think? If you have any other hot cruelty free faves by Barry M please share them in the comments below. Thanks for reading.
Til next time. Em 💖💖💖
