I love a good glossy eye . . . when Pat McGrath or Charlotte Tilbury does it on the runway  so it was only a matter of time before someone brought it to the high street in a handy palette form. I’ve been playing around with this glossy palette all weekend – and created some very awkward eyeshadow combinations – so I think I’m ready to introduce Barry M’s newest limited edition palette to you.

The Barry M Eye Limited Edition Eye Shine Shadow & Glaze Palette – £6.49 via Superdrug – comes in 6 tropical colours and lasts for around 4 hours without a primer. In this palette you can find:-

  • An Enchanting Green
  • A Moonlight Silver
  • A Rich Orange
  • A Vibrant Blue
  • A Burnt, Metallic Red
  • A Beachy Bronze

with a vaseline-like glaze that over the shadows for a high-fashion glossy eye.

You might be happy to know that the glaze does not affect the pigmentation of the eyeshadows. It just adds a glossy effect that is actually quite gorgeous when swatched (although I don’t feel it looks as gorgeous when worn on the eyes)

If you want to get this palette, I have to let you know that wearing the glaze over your eyeshadow will cause it to crease – because glossy eyes crease like CRAZY – I just don’t think that runway trends like glossy eyes translate very well off the runway but I think this eyeshadow shades in this palette make it a great summer wardrobe addition.

The Barry M Eye Shine Shadow & Glaze Palette is £6.49 and available in Superdrug from the 6th May 2015 and in Boots from the 13th May 2015.


How do you feel about glossy eyes? Do you think it deserves a place on the highstreet or should it stay on the runways like it belongs?
