Barry M Deal and 154 New Nude Review

So, I was in my local Boots and I came across the Barry M as usual, and then seen there was an offer, spend £6 or more and receive a free limited edition silver glitter varnish. How could I resist? Well I did and 4 days later I was back to actually purchase it!

I bought the eyeliner in 'Gold' for £2.99 and the new lip paint in 254 - Pale Nude and received a lovely varnish free! (Worth £3.99)

Now the gold eyeliner is pretty typical, a beautiful glisten which will look lovely on bronzed and nude eyes for that added effect. I'm quite surprised as I usually find light eyeliners not as long lasting but this one lasts quite well!

Then I got the new edition to the lip paint collection in 154 - Pale Nude. I don't really venture towards nude lipsticks, especially Barry M as I've had a bad experience with one in the past, it was waxy, foundation like and just didn't suit my complexion but after hearing that there was suspected change in the formula I thought i'd give it a go to add to my lipstick collection. Surprisingly, I love it! Now I admit, due to the winter I need to scrub my lips and apply lip butter but its worth it! This lipstick will probably be a handbag essential as I love it.

You can see my chapped lips still in the photo but I blame the winter weather! So hopefully once they clear up the lipstick will look a lot smoother

And just to show you, this is my previous Barry M lip paint in 101- Marshmellow a very pale nude, that was waxy and always cracked on the lips. Opposed to the New shade 154 - Pale Nude, which appears to have a new formula as it is much more creamier. Definitely advise anyone to go for the 154 and stay away from 101!

Now just to quickly show you the free varnish, I wasn't expecting miracles as it is free but it'd look lovely on tips or on top of a varnish for the Christmas season, now ignore the state of my nails! Waitressing really does ruin them!

Anyway, Sorry this is so long winded but I should hopefully be updating a bit more frequently as I break up from college next Tuesday for the holidays and I'll be going on a shopping spree! So a big haul will be coming up in a couple of weeks so stay tuned.
