My latest procrastination venture had me trawling through ASOS whilst they had their 25% off everything sale. Whilst looking through the beauty section I stumbled across this little palette. To be honest I didn't know Barry M even made pallets, so couldn't resist trying one!
So far, I'm pretty impressed! -- I'm not going to go in to a super long review, as you can pretty much see what this looks like without me writing paragraphs!
There's 5 shimmery shadows and 1 matte brown, which I love as I rarely wear matte colours and love doing a brown smokey eye for the day. They're all super pigmented and really easy to blend; none of the shadows are chalky at all, which you might expect from such a cheap product.
It's perfect for the day time and it's now my go-to palette if I'm away for the weekend. The packaging is lightweight and smaller than any of my others, fitting perfectly into my handbag.
The blush is nice too -- note the word 'nice', not amazing or beautiful. It's a matte powder pink colour and adds a pretty flush to the skin, which is sometimes just what you need. There's nothing worse than heavy eye makeup and lots of shimmery, bright blush!
At £6.49, it's one of the best bargains I've had in a long time!
