Barry M have lots of nice products launching for Summer 2016, but considering I have a serious highlight addiction it is no surprise that I made a bee line for these beauties! Here’s a look at the brand new Barry M Illuminating Strobe Cream sticks with photos and swatches of both the shades. Order them online HERE.

‘Strobe’ is like a red flag word to me these days. As soon as I hear it, my attention is fully piqued – I am all ears and hoping for all cheekbones!! If you like a cream highlighter, and can’t quite stretch to the Marc Jacobs Glow Stick, then these may just tick the box for you.

Barry M Illuminating Strobe Cream Swatches

I am loving both these shades, and as I like to layer my highlight, I think these two work well alone and together.

Frosty Pink, Iced Bronze:

There is quite a subtle difference between the two. I think that Frosty Pink is the tiniest bit more matte than Iced Bronze and a little more cool toned. Iced Bronze is a little sheenier and warmer. I think both shades would work well on a range of skin tones.

I really like these. The texture is lovely, the shades are soft and subtle, and you can use them lightly or layer them up. And if you really want your highlight to pop, set them with a powder highlighter and they’ll be able to spot you from outer space! Heart eyes…

The Barry M Illuminating Strobe Cream sticks are the bargain price of £4.49 each. They are available to order them online HERE.
