Barry M Dazzle Dusts & Fine Glitter Dust Swatches
Barry M are a UK drugstore brand which sell many great products including a wide range of Dazzle Dusts and Fine Glitter Dusts. These loose products are highly pigmented and most are packed full of shimmer and sparkle, though there are a few matte shades as well.
Each little jar contains a large amount of product, I would estimate around 2 grams (I've been unable to find the actual weight on either the product or online which is a downside). It is stated on the bottom sticker of a jar if it is not safe for use on eyes or lips. These retail at £4.59 each so are very affordable. There are often promotional offers in Boots and Superdrug to the likes of 2 for £8 or 3 for £10 as well as freebie products if you spend over a certain amount.
All swatches were done upon a damp arm.
Barry M has some really beautiful shades; the Dazzle Dusts are finely milled and there are some really complex shades (89 Oyster Grey, 92 Aqua Gold, 98 Petrol Black). The Fine Glitter Dusts are amazing, but are very very glittery. 04 Silver, for example, is almost pure glitter and is rather gritty. 22 Black Gold is a lovely blend of black and gold glitter though- it looks lovely used wet as a liner.
My absolute favourite is #89 Oyster Grey- it is the perfect mix of grey and pink sheen; it really is such a unique colour.
