Barry M Fashion Icon

This is one of the new Glitterati shades that Barry M released the other day.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and slow drying (at least 5 minutes for a coat). But it is worth the long drying time! It is so, so pretty :-D Purple with holo glitter and it's also iridescent. Flashes of purple and blue can be seen. The formula was slightly thick, but easy to work with. Lasted really well.

Rating
Easy to use = 8/10
Application = 8/10
Drying time = 6/10
Lasted well = 8/10
Coats = 2
Finish = glittery, holo and iridescent
Removal = tricky even with foils, let soak for at least 2 minutes
Overall = 8/10
Purchased from = Superdrug instore

My Personal Rating = 9/10 :-D

  1. Ooh that looks lovely on you! It almost look duochromey, although I know it isn't really.

    If you try it as a topper over a plain creme base it's a bit easier to remove.
