Bold In Gold


I've really been loving gold lately; gold necklaces, gold rings & now gold eyeshadow. I never really bother with eyeshadow, but when I do I like to keep it subtle & I find that this gold shade by Barry M does the job perfectly! As you can probably tell from my previous posts I am a huge fan of Barry M products - I just think they're great quality and super affordable (everything I want in a brand!). As far as I can remember I bought this shadow in Boots for in and around £4.50 (which I think is reasonable enough). It's in the shade 09 & think it's called 'Tan', but I'm not sure. What I do know however, is that it is reallyyy shimmery & is quite heavily pigmented - brilliant! 


I've had this for roughly 10 months and have used it sparingly (because a little goes a long way) & I haven't even created the slightest dent - great! I also love love love the packaging! It's super sturdy and doesn't feel like it's going to crack or break any time soon & so does a great job of protecting the eye shadow (great if your clumsy like me!). 


Have you tried this product?

  1. ooh this looks like such a pretty colour - I'm obsessed with gold too! I've never really looked at the Barry M eyeshadows, probably because I'm always so distracted by all their nail polishes ;)

  2. I love this shade! I do like a bit of glitter in eyeshadows. I always forget Barry M do other cosmetics other than nail varnishes!

  5. I'm a big fan of Barry M too- but I prefer their nail polishes to their eye make up :)
