Barry M Fine Glitter Dust and Dazzle Dust Reviews and Swatches

June 20, 2007

Move over MAC, Barry M Fine Glitter Dust and Dazzle Dust are the hottest thing right now!

Barry M Fine Glitter Dust and Dazzle Dust

Loved by celebs like Jamelia, Christina Aguilera and Girls Aloud, these loose powder eyeshadows are available only in the UK and are comparable, if not better, to MAC Pigments and Glitters.

They come in a little glass jar about 1 inch in diameter with a black plastic lid just like MAC Fluidlines, only smaller in size. There are a total of over 60 gorgeous colors to choose from, which are all shimmery and highly pigmented. The Dazzle Dusts are just like MAC Pigments while the Glitter Dusts are the same but mixed with tiny pieces of glitter. They are both uber fine, smooth and totally non-gritty. Plus they are super easy to blend and stay on for hours too! I *love* wearing these when I go clubbing – they just make my eyes sparkle!

I currently own 5 colors and am definitely going to get more.

Chocolate Dazzle Dust is a rich warm chocolate brown. Similar to the highly coveted MAC Coco Beach Pigment.
Old Gold Dazzle Dust is a cool antique gold.
Pale Purple Dazzle Dust is a cool lavender.
Blue Gray Dazzle Dust is blue-green that reminded me of MAC Tilt Eyeshadow.
Purple Glitter Dust is a royal purple.
