Recently on a trip to Superdrug I came across the new Barry M Cosmic Highlight Palette, and got a tad over excited at just how pretty it was! I always spend a fortune on high end products, so I thought I’d buy this since it was only £7.99 and do a first impressions, and hope that you as well, fall in love with this palette!
This palette has 4 cream shades, and 2 powder. The powder shades are super pigmented and the highlight pay off is just stunning! The thing I was worried about the most was the cream shades, I’m always a little unsure of cream based products, especially highlight, but this is one I can’t fault one bit!
My favourites are definitely the 3 more natural shades, as they will definitely be the shades that I use the most, I am honestly not to sure when I’ll use the pink powder highlight but I might mix that in with blush, or actually go outside my comfort zone and create some looks with it, I’d also say the cream pink highlight is more a blusher, as you can’t see it at all in the photo above I’ve posted! Lastly, the only bronze shade in the palette which is so gorgeous, and now making me go out to buy fake tan so I can add this into makeup looks, as I think fake tan would be a lot cheaper than a holiday away to fetch that sun kissed look!
Lastly, the packaging. I am not too fussed on the packaging, especially the sketches all over the front, but it does make the product stand out! I do however love the gradient effect from blue to purple and the fact it has a large mirror inside, as it makes life so much easier when I am on the move and applying makeup, as it’s a good size to put in your makeup bag.
