Barry M Illuminating Highlighter Palette Swatches
The three shades are Frosty Cream, Iced Pink and Gilded Bronze:
They are really pretty shades and the texture is super soft, silky and easy to blend. Frosty Cream gives the skin a lovely bright highlight and it’s perfect for brow bone and the inner corner of the eyes, as well as right on the tops of the cheekbones.
Iced Pink is a softer shade but equally illuminating on the skin. You could use it over blush as well as on the high points of the face.
Gilded Bronze is a gorgeous warm shade. It would serve as a great highlight on darker skin tones and will add warmth and dimension to fairer skins. Fabulous.
All the shades work well as a luminous wash of colour over the lids too. The only thing I am not too keen on is the cardboard packaging. There are a couple of other palettes in this collection that come in much sturdier tins. Get Shapey Brow & Eyeshadow palette and the Feeling Cheeky Sculpting Palette have much better packaging and are the same price.
