Why We Love Barry M

Author: Jasmine Cottan  

We can’t get enough of the British Cosmetics brand Barry M! Their gorgeous, electrifying colours have made them the No.1 colour cosmetics company in the UK, and we fully understand why.



Why we love Barry M


What’s not to love with Barry M? Aside from being super affordable, one of the main reasons why we love them is that they’ve been cruelty-free from the very beginning.

 That’s right –  all baked eyeshadows, stunning holographic toppers, full coverage foundations and lightweight concealers are 100% animal friendly, 100% vegan, and free of those harmful synthetic nasties, DBP, Formaldehyde and Toluene.

The cult brand is a proud supporter of the Humane Society International’s Be Cruelty Free Campaign, which has since eradicated the practice of animal-testing in 28 European countries. Yay to our fluffy, furry friends!

The go-to for eye popping pigments, Barry M cements itself as a leading figure for out-of-this-world makeup artistry, throwing out collections of striking metallic finishes, glitter toppings and more – and who doesn’t love the occasional crazy hue every now and again?

Since the eighties, Barry M was the cosmetics brand for forward-thinking youths and rebellious spirits. If you were a hard-core Goth, a new romantic or a punk rocker in the mid to late eighties, you would have definitely purchased a lipstick or a black waterproof precision liner from Barry M.

But most importantly … cue it drum roll –

Barry M was the first cosmetics company to launch black nail polish and white khol eyeliner, and is responsible for the one and only colour changing lip paint!

We stand alongside revolutionary trend-setters!


Here are some of our favourites


Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paint 707 Unicorn

The silky smooth and ultra long-lasting lipstick magically changes from a bright shade of sun yellow to a gorgeous pink. An all-day custom kiss that’s all your own? Yes please!

Dusty highlighter move aside. Radiate like the galaxy with a few sweeps of this creamy, pearlescent white strobing cream. This lightweight highlighter offers manageable,  buildable coverage and blends into the skin like a dream.


Barry M Dazzle Dust 22 Electric Blue


You’re not a true British kid if you haven’t applied one of the gorgeously pigmented dazzle dusts onto your lids. Packed with multifaceted reflective filaments, the velvety smooth loose powders add high-impact colour to the skin in seconds.
