Hey lovelies. I hope you are all having a fantastic day! SO, Barry M has recently launched a pretty juicy product and everyone seems to be going a little crazy over it! They are High end liquid highlighters at drugstore prices!! Shock I know right!! They are the new Barry M Liquid Chrome Highlighter Drops! They are the newest highlighters from Barry M and oh momma are they glow like the moon on a clear night!
I spotted these little gems a while shopping in town and I just had to buy one there and then!! They retail for only £6.99 each!! Come on £6.99 for a highlighter when there is company’s charging £30+ for highlighters like ICONIC or Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid highlighters! Now we have got a drugstore brand for basically a quarter of the price and just as beautiful as them! You can now buy them on the Barry M website, ASOS, Superdrug and Boots even Tesco has them yes people Tesco! These metallic chrome highlighters are made with light reflecting pearls to reflect the light, almost effortlessly!
Barry M is cruelty-free which is flipping awesome! They also do not sell in China (anymore! Yay!) BUT, want to know the best part? These Liquid Chrome Highlighter Drops are also VEGAN! You heard that right, V-E-G-A-N! I found this out through the Barry M website, under the product ingredients it will say whether the product is vegan or not by a little logo like this…
Ok lovelies, lets get down to the good stuff the stuff you’re actually here to read about! There are five shades within this collection so you are bound to find one which suits your skin tone, complexion or general style! This is actually my favourite part of the highlighters is how different the shades are even though they do not seem it when you first look at them – you do have some daring shades, for example Moon Potion and Precious Pearl, which also seem perfect for those of a pale skin tone (yip that’s me white as a ghost ha!) then you’ve got the more subtle, natural highlighters such as At first light, Liquid Fortune and Beam Me Up all can be more suited for those of a darker skin tone although saying that, you go wear them however you want in any which way you want because that’s what every woman/man should do especially because they are so versatile on your skin!
The highlighter I opted for this time was Moon Potion – A pearly highlighter with blue/purple undertones it is beautiful and bow does it glow!!
Barry M Liquid Chrome Highlighter – moon potion, Just look at that glow!!
Ok packaging at first glance I was drawn straight to them these look luxurious as hell and I love it! Barry M have combined their classic staple of glass bottles just like their nail varnishes and made them so classy! They really do add a sense of sophistication to my makeup table! Got to have them out on show!
On the packaging it states that these can be used “on its own for an intensely radiant highlighting effect or add drops into your favourite foundation for an overall glow.” The only shades I would ever consider using these with my foundation is Beam Me Up for an overall natural glow or Liquid Fortune if I’ve faked tanned and wanted to darken my foundation a little with an added glow! But I’m not really the glowing type I just like my highlighter to be on fleek and just about blind someone ha! I don’t think I would recommend Moon Potion mixed with your foundation as it has blue undertones so you would probably end up looking like a glowing blueberry haha!.
They can be applied onto any area of skin, cheek bones, brow bone, nose, cupids bow, collar bone, legs, body, ect. If you want any area of skin to glow, then you do it lovely! Be fabulous!
Moon potion – on cheekbone with no other makeup products!
The product comes with a pipet dropper which make sense to the ‘drop’ element of the name. I find these highlighters to be so pigmented and creamy that a little goes a very long way! Therefore, when using the pipet I found that too much product came out which left my face rather sticky. I apply mine by taking the pipet out of the bottle and using a brush/beauty blender to pick up some of the excess highlighter left around the pipet and applying it straight to my skin. This wayI have more control of the amount of product and where I want the product to be.
Overall, I honestly would highly recommend you buying these highlighters. I think the price is abosuletly outstanding for such a high quality product! The pigmentation and glow of these is so intense, and if you try them then you will know what I mean by a little goes a very long way! It is kind of annoying having to constantly clean the top of the bottle but come on it’s totally worth it for a nice, clean, pretty product!
Barry M has once again proven to us, and all the make up brands everywhere in the world, that you can make an outstanding, very high quality, high quantity product at an affordable price that is also ethically correct! No animals were harmed!! I am definitely buying every other one to add to my collection!!
