« First Look! : Free Barry M Makeup Kit.

Hello Lovelies!

Do you remember last week when I told you about the FREE Barry M Makeup Kit that is available with the Sun Newspaper's BUZZ Magazine on 12th Feb? .. Well I have been sent one before they come out, to show you all and do a little review on!

I've spent today trying out the goodies and I have to say, They're pretty cute and I like them all.
The three items that you will get are a nail paint, super shiny lipgloss and a kohl pencil. The gloss and polish are new shades, and the pencil is something that they always sell.

The Nail Paint : This is a very unusual shade, kinda raspberry red / rosy / pink .. I'm finding it difficult to describe, I even asked my other half what colour he would call it, and he just said it looked like a red/pink (useful!) .. Unfortunately it doesn't have a name, but I would call it a rosy pink colour, slightly on the coral side, but very vivid and pretty! It was pretty much opaque in one coat, but I used two, and it has a very slight shimmer in it, like just random bits of glitter that don't really show up in the pics. All in all, a nice shade of polish, and one which I am happy to have, It's quite unusual but pretty.

The Super Shiny Lipgloss : This is one of the Barry M Tube Glosses, I own a couple already, but nothing like this shade. Again, it doesn't have a name, but it's a creamy baby pink colour, it's pigmented and looks nice alone, or to accompany a pink / nude lipstick. The only small complaint I have with this is the taste - It smells kinda vanilla-y but it leaves a soapy taste on my tongue which I don't enjoy.. It's weird, and I'm unsure about why it tastes a bit weird. Other than that, it's a nice colour..

The Kohl Pencil : This is something I already own. The Barry M Kohl is a nice one, it's a dark black, soft and great for the waterline and lashline. It's not waterproof so doesn't last all day, but it's a nice smudgy pencil that is perfect for a smokey eye.
