Barry M - The Most Colourful Name In Cosmetics

Wednesday, 6 June 2012

I'm not a very vibrant person when it comes to make up so the thought of plastering myself in red dazzle dust or blue mascara which Barry M are universally renowned for makes me shudder a little. It was only when I went to a market research event a while back that I truly came to grips with the concept of Barry M - to allow its customers to indulge in and experiment with a range of diverse and obscure colours in order to express themselves, which is respectable. It may not be my cup of tea but I have to admit that from being a part of the market research, it is safe to say that there is a lot of thought behind the brand.

I have recently noticed that Barry M have started to introduce a more subtle range of makeup which is more my thing. The bronzer smells of chocolate which makes me hungry every time I apply it, and the lip glosses are all scented of coconut, watermelon or something of the sort which is a very clever element as it makes the product even more desirable.

So, it's safe to say that although I may not be Barry M mad, my make up bag is slowly being blessed with the occasional addition of one of their products, plus, it's always nice to use a range of brands. But hold up, let me tell you what I really love, their nail varnish! Honestly, once I'd started to use it I had a clear out of my ample nail varnish collection and binned any varnish that wasn't Barry M.

Now you're probably thinking that this was an unnecessary and wasteful thing to do but let me explain why. You know that horrible chipped look that accumulates over a couple of days after painting your nails? It doesn't look pretty. Being awfully impatient is one of my flaws, therefore I cannot bare the chore of repainting my nails every other day because quite frankly, it's boring and makes me feel a little nauseous after a while, damn you toxic fumes.

Once I'd discovered Barry M nail varnish it was like a growing addiction and makes painting my nails a little more enjoyable! They offer an insane range of colours from a cute and summery pastel palette, a bright and funky collection and a crackle range meaning there are more than enough to choose from. So let me give you a few pointers as to why my love for Barry M has grown:

1) The nail varnish is just the right consistency, it isn't painfully thin that you have to apply 4 layers, yet isn't too thick making it gloopy - it's just right.

2) Once applied and left to dry it leaves a really nice shine making your painted nails look really fresh and neat.

3) The 3 in 1 base coat, top coat and clear polish once used gives a clean finish and seals in the polish ensuring it looks flawless.

4) Of course every nail varnish is going to chip, but out of all the nail varnishes I have experimented with, Barry M lasts for a good 3 days without chipping.

5) The pot is a good size meaning that the nail varnish lasts a considerable amount of time for the affordable price of £2.99 per pot.

It's clear why I refuse to use other nail varnish brands and I think that my opinion is enough to make any of you experience the pleasure of Barry M. What's the point in fussing over your nails 12 times a week when you can sit back, relax, and stare at your pretty fun infused nails. Go on, be a dare devil and go and lose your Barry M virginity.



Apologies for how awful my nails look - I was quite obviously rushing hence the smears and smudges. Please look at the colours and not the appalling technique, if you can even call it that!
