Barry M Swatches

We promised swatches of our Barry M eyeshadows as soon as possible, and now we got them! The colour payoff is supreme and the eyeshadows are a joy to work with!
We splitted them in groups of four to make it easier to show them. 
DD stands for Dazzle Dust, and FGD for Fine Glitter Dust
The DD is just like an average loose eyeshadow with lots of shimmer in it. But the FGD is a loose eyeshadow with glitter grains in it which make it so much more fun to wear. Use with your favorite primer to get the best out of them, and personally we think it's better to use a stickier one!

Ooh, thanks for this. I am going to peruse a Barry M counter near me soon and was looking around for swatches so I know what I'm getting myself into. I love the petrol black, grey and opal. Haha, I'm such a goth when it comes to make-up. :)

Petrol Black is the best drugstore thing you can find that comes close to complexity of Fyrinnae shadows.
