Have you met Barry M?
Author: Jasmine Cottan Date Posted: 25 July 2018
There are so many great quality makeup brands that deliver innovative creations without breaking your bank account. But if you're after something a little more unorthodox but just as exciting, then Barry M is the icing on the cosmetic cake.
Why is Barry M so popular?
It doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced beauty blogger, drag queen or a teen makeup guru. If you’re a True-Brit, you would have grown up and played with Barry M's lip paints and sparkly Dazzle dusts. The colour cosmetic brand has delivered affordable colour-transforming and cruelty-free products since the early '80s, and continues to remain the go-to choice for vibrant statement looks.
As this is one of the “older” brands in existence, Barry M holds a strong history and reputation behind it, so there’s no wonder its deemed the leading colour cosmetics and makeup company in the UK.
This is a brand that caters to everyone, stocking collection upon collection of on-trend colours for every skin colour, background, ethnicity, occupation and fashion sense. Since Barry M grew to prominence in the '80s, they were the first cosmetic company to create black lipstick, black nail polish and khol liners - makeup that simultaneously followed and complimented the crazier fashion movements, like the punk scene and the new romantics.
And the best part? All Barry M products are Vegan and animal friendly, and free of harmful ingredients including DBP, Formaldehyde and Toluene!
So of course we decided to stock Barry M
If the makeup is inexpensive and delivers consistent colour payoff with a long lasting finish, there’s only one thing we can do ... grab a few of these goodies for ourselves of course!
Yes, we’ve just stocked up on a selection of colour transforming lip paints, high impact strobing highlighters, shimmery eyeshadows, foundations and life-saving colour correctors for you to choose from.
