Makeup Review: Barry M Bold Gold Waterproof Eyeliner.

Hi everyone. Sorry I haven't been posting much at all but today I have a review of a Barry M eyeliner for you to read. I think my review will be surprising as this has turned out to be a really much loved product by a lot of people. So let's get into it:

This is a waterproof eyeliner that cames in eight colours from Barry M that is supposedly long lasting (8 hours) and according to Superdrug and Boots it applies "as smoothly as a liquid with the precision of a pencil". First of all this product is £3.99 and for the price, I think it's ridiculous that it doesn't even do the job it's made for! 

 The nib of the pen fell off the very first time I used it! I swiped the product across my lower lash line very gently and the product is that soft or that crap that it instantly broke off and I couldn't even get the full experience of the eyeliner. 

  The swatch makes it looks like it could have been a nice colour on my eyes as well. I originally bought it to wear on Christmas day to make my look more glittery and vibrant but I didn't even get to try it out. I ordered it online from Superdrug and I don't know if mine wasn't as sturdy or as solid as the other eyeliners but I'm very unhappy with it! Everyone else absolutely loves it and have had a brilliant time with it. Unfortunately I am very unimpressed and it is literally the worst product I've ever attempted to use.

Have you ever used this? What did you think of it?
Thankyou for reading.
Laura.

  2. I had a bad experience with one of their eyeshadow palettes, it looked really nice but it was really unimpressive when I swatched it - barely showed up!

  11. That's such a shame it didn't work out. I always find Barry M to be a bit hit and miss. The colour is ever so pretty as well. Thanks for sharing x

  13. This is a really pretty gold. I never really look at Barry M for anything else but nail varnishes so I'll make sure next time I have more of a browse x

  14. Such a shame about the product not working but I really do love it when bloggers are actually honest about that, so thank you for your honest opinion! It really saves the rest of us from spending money on crappy products (even if this one wasn't overly expensive).

    P.S. chuckled so much at "that soft or that crap". Don't ask me why but I died a little!
