In case you hadn’t noticed, the holographic trend in beauty is getting bigger and High Street favourites Barry M are getting in on the action. Check out my photos and swatches of the new Barry M Holographic Eyeshadow Topper & Lip Topper line up. If you like a bit of shimmer and shine, walk this way.

So both these shimmery topper products can be used alone for a sheer sparkly finish, or used layered over eye or lip colours for lots of extra dimension.

These liquid eyeshadows are a collection of four duo-chrome shades. You can use them on their own for sheer sparkle that shifts, or you can layer them over eyeshadow as a sparkly top coat.

  • Supernova – emerald & gold
  • Stardust – pink & purple
  • Asteroid – blue & mauve
  • Luna – purple & blue

All the shades are super sparkly but sheer on the first layer. With another coat they build to an almost opaque finish which is super shiny and metallic.

They are definitely more duo-chrome than holographic, but I actually find that’s generally the case with makeup. In terms of application, I’d recommend keeping the eyes closed while the layers dry or it will settle in the creases. Especially if you have hooded lids like me.

I am not sure I’d use these all over my eyes, but I think they’d be excellent as an accent, to place light directly in the centre of the lid, or right in the inner corners.

These are four iridescent lip glosses that are packed with shimmer. They use a lovely smooth, non sticky formula that’s really comfortable on the lips.

I love Spellbound. It is the perfect gloss to throw on to add high shine and give the illusion on fuller lips. It is lovely on its own as a nude, shimmery gloss, and also amazing on top of lipstick to create depth and dimension. Wizard does a similar job and with its blue tint could even help to make your teeth look whiter!

The Barry M Holographic Eyeshadow Toppers & Lip Toppers are £4.99 each and launch HERE on 17th January 2018.
