My amazing Barry M haul – Includes Aquarium range, new spring Gelly Hi shines, Silk and new Gelly Hi shine for lips!

Yup, long title but I wanted to make sure you saw How many amazing things Barry M have been doing – Honestly I’m constantly adding something else by Barry M on to my Wishlist because it’s been an endless line of exciting, beautiful looking products! Needless to say I’ve been rather happy to be able to get them in my hands and look at them and go ‘ooooooh’

Just Look! So many beautiful things all in one photo! You can see why I’ve been so excited, I just didn’t know which one to play with first!
Just look at those sugary pale pastel shades! Sugary sounds odd but it’s the only way I can describe them! The moment I saw these three new shades I knew I had to have them, I’ve loved the Gelly Hi Shines ever since they came out last year and I think these shades are Exactly what the collection was missing. I see these as being a big deal this spring/summer.

From left to right we have ‘Huckleberry’, ‘Sugar Apple’ and ‘Rose Hip’

The Aquarium collection features three aqua toned polishes and three pink/red toned ones – There’s four duo toned polishes and two foil glitters. The two that leapt out to me are those above, on the left is ‘Treasure Chest’ and on the right ‘Caspian’. I absolutely love the large particles of foil like glitter in the gold and rosegold tones in ‘Treasure chest’ and then the pink/gold duo tones of ‘Caspian’ just make for a stunning rose gold effect. I am Very tempted by some of the aqua toned ones, too, so watch this space!
I already had the blue and green toned shades from the Silk range but I needed another shade to fit with the special offers I was taking up when I was ordering – ‘Truffle’ is one of the shades I wanted, initially, when I saw the Silk range but I didn’t get it because I already have lots of neutrals. I am so glad that I ordered this one, too, it’s beautiful. These polishes are amazing, matte and pearl at the Same time! I think ‘Meadow’, the green shade, will be a real go to shade for this spring – See my Instagram pic of it here –
When I heard that Barry M were going to release a Gelly Hi Shine range for lips I was very very intrigued, I loved the idea behind them and the continuation of the Hi Shine collection.

The shades I picked are ‘Alpha’ (top) and ‘Sirius’ (bottom)

As you can see ‘Alpha’ is incredibly pigmented – It’s a beautiful orange toned red and I like it rather a lot! 

This is it from another angle so that you can see the shine aspect. The softness of these is incredible, they really do feel like ‘gelly’ – So so beautiful! 

‘Sirius’ is a much more sheer offering and, as you can see, has a much more ‘gelly’ like look to it. It has the same, gorgeous, texture as the other shade and it goes on beautifully.
As you can see, this one has a nice shine to it, too. It’s a really wearable shade and the slight raspberry tones to it make it look just beautiful on the lips. I’m going to try and get some on the lip swatches of these done, for you, soon!

So, yes, some fabulous new products from Barry M at the moment!

    Wow, you got a lot of lovely things. The lip crayons look really nice I'm not sure I would have even looked at them in the shop, but I definitely will now, so thanks for that :o) Xx

    What a great haul! I love the look of the aquarium polishes, and I am definitely intrigued by the Gelly lip crayons. The New Gelly nail polishes for spring are gorgeous too, but I already have so many pastel polishes I'm not sure I can get away with buying three more!

    I just posted swatches of the med one and treasure chest – so strange. I absolutely love the collection though. If I didn't have similar shades from Models Own I'd get them all xx you must pick med up, beautiful.

    LOVE Barry M, their nail polishes are just the best. I was looking at the new Aquarium collection in Superdrug at the weekend and couldn't decide which one to get, so I ended up buying none of them. I think I'm doing this wrong
