Barry M Natural Glow palette

I’ve seen many reviews about various different eye shadow palettes and I never quite know what to try. The problem with my make-up regime is it’s very simple in the fact that I never wear eye shadow mainly because I never know what shades to wear and never really sure how to apply and blend.

I was having a wander around my local Superdrug as saw this palette in the Barry M range, it seemed to have everything I wanted, kind of a starter eye shadow palette I’d say. 

As you will see the colours aren’t very fancy, they are quite simple and easy to wear with most skin tones I’d imagine. It also comes with a little bit of blush too, something again I never use. Whilst I know many amazing beauty bloggers will be looking at this thinking Urban Decay or Naked do a much better better, personally I just wanted to have a bit of a play around with my make-up to see whether I would actually start wearing eye shadows.

To be fair I do actually like the selection, the colours aren’t too pigmented or concentrated so it allows for an unskilled hand to blend them together. 

The second shade in is almost non-existent but actually it works as a pretty good base for my eyes to then put some of the other shimmery colours on top. All of them can be worn together, for an everyday eye look, apart from the last shade on the right, that would probably be best to try out when I’m going on a night out or something.

Overall I’m really happy with the palette, a great newbie eye shadow palette. I really like that just a simple bit of colour or shade gives my eyes a really different look.

I also bought the Real Techniques eye shadow brush set from Boots to apply it with which I’m really impressed with. Admittedly they were a little pricey, but I definitely think anything from the Real Techniques range is definitely worth it. 

Have you tried this palette?
