Barry M Chrome Highlighter – Review

Highlighters are such a huge part of my makeup these days and with Iconic London being all over Instagram a few months ago with its highlighter drops many lower end brands have joined this trend too. If you read my december haul post from a few days ago you will know I got the Barry M Chrome Highligtighter drops. I have had a weeks use and so far I am really impressed.

These bad boys come in 5 colours as listed below and are priced at 6.99 a bottle. I got the colour At First Light, which is a rose gold shade and I love it! They come in a square glass bottle with squeeze tip aplicator which is both simplistic and elegant giving this a high end feel.

The swatch below shows how one drop can go a long way the highlighter is both really pigmented and also really easy to blend out.

APPLICATION

You can applying straight from the squeeze tip aplicator, but you can use a clean brush to apply. You will need a very small amount to build up a nice consistent glow. I found working the product with my index finger was the best way to apply and then I went back in with a beauty blender to make sure the glow was seamless. A little bit really doeas go a long way so I would suggest applying fairly sparsly and then doing back in adding more if needed.

THOUGHTS

Well damn. Barry M has created a great little product. As this is my first time using highlighter drops I don’t know how it compares to others. I might have to try out some other brands before crowning this as thhe winner, but I really like the way it is applied. I like the fact that there are a number of shades and I could see myself using Beam Me Up and Liquid Fortune as luminators in my foundation and on my shoulders and collar bones for more of a warmer glow.  The chrome drops don’t fade and also don’t mess with my foundation, which is a great touch. I hate applying a liquid on top of my foundation incase it interfers with the coverage.

WOULD I REPURCHASE

Yes. As an alternative to some of the more ecxpensive brands I think Barry M has done a great job and I have actually purchased Beam Me Up whilst shopping for an outfit for my christmas work party.  I would actually rate these drops a 5/5 for lasting time, price, pigmnetation and colours. So this is definatly a product that is going to be in my everyday makeup bag.

What did you think of the highlighter drops?

  1. Ah I’m so glad you reviewed At First Light, that’s the one I bought and couldn’t find a single review on it! I think I must be the only person who doesn’t like these though, I can’t get them to work on me 😕
