Barry M Eyeliner Review | Bold Black & Brown


Hey girlie's!!!

I was in desperate need of a new eyeliner as my Avon Supershock is so tiny that I cant even sharpen it, I decided I wanted to try something new and I surprisingly opted for Barry M Kohl Liners. Now you might be shocked to hear that I have never EVER bought make up from Barry M before, I have thousands of their Nail Polishes but no make up. The reason I decided on Barry M eyeliners was because that day I had watched a make up tutorial done by the fabulous Nic from Pixiwoo, Nic used the brown and the black Barry M eyeliners in her tutorial and said they were amazing, so if Nic from Pixiwoo says they're amazing then I knew they'd be good and I just had to buy them to try for myself.   

Here's the two I opted for....

Barry M Bold Black Waterproof Eyeliner £3.99
Firstly I opted for the Bold Black Waterproof eyeliner, in the shop I thought this was actually a standard kohl liner but once I'd got it home and opened it I realised it's actually a gel formula eye liner, which are my favourite!!! I find gel eyeliners always have better colour pay off and are so much softer and easier to use and Barry M's offering certainly doesn't disappoint!!! As you can see from the swatch pictured above, the pigmentation is very strong, its the blackest of blacks, the eyeliner is also very soft and easy to use whether you want to line your waterline or upper lash line, and it smudges out beautifully for the more dramatic smokey looks. As for wear time... On the upper lash line the eyeliner didn't budge all day which I thought was amazing and there was no fading either, it was still its bold black shade, on the waterline I found it started to fade/wear off after a good 4-5 hours. Overall I do love the Bold Black eyeliner from Barry M I just wish it lasted slightly longer on the waterline.

Barry M Brown Kohl Pencil £2.99
Brown eyeliner is something I never used to use but recently I've been using my Stila brown liner alot so I thought I'd treat myself to another more affordable option. The Barry M Brown Kohl Liner is just as good as any other standard kohl liner to be honest, it was nice an soft to use on the waterline and gave a much more softer look than the black which is always nice for daytime wear, I also used the brown eyeliner on my upper lash line when I done a nice neutral eye look and again it worked well and went on with ease, I particularly liked using the brown eyeliner to smudge along my lower lash line, it looked really pretty and smudged out well without budging all day.

Overall I really do love Barry M's eyeliners and I'm glad I gave them a go, I'd definitely say their lasting power when used for smudging is phenomenal but on the waterline they don't last as long as I'd like, however I don't mind topping up my liner through the day if I need too.

Have any of you girlie's tried any of the Barry M liners before??? What did you think??

  6. How long do they last (the pencil in particular) ? 4 or 5 hours ? I am thinking of using them at Sixth Form, and afraid they will go off during school :) Thanks :)
