The new Barry M liquid highlighter drops review.
If you read my Drugstore Beauty Haul you’ll know I purchased this highlighter after lusting over similar ones with a much higher price tag. When ASOS announced Barry M was launching their own liquid highlighter I knew I had to snap it up.
I purchased the shade Beam Me Up as it seemed the most suitable for my skin tone. The highlighter is a beautiful rose gold colour with a champagne sparkle. It comes in a lovely glass bottle with a squeeze tip applicator, looks very high end. At only £6.99 it’s a fraction of the price of the Iconic Illuminating Drops.
The highlighting drops also come in…
With one swatch the highlighter looks very intense and shimmery. You only need a small amount and you can build it up from a subtle shimmer to a more fierce gleam. I’m in love with the colour and so excited to wear this on my face.
Once I’d finished applying my make up, I dipped a blending sponge into the highlighter and starting applying it to my cheek bones. The highlighter seemed difficult to blend with the sponge and started looking streaky so I had to use my hands. This doesn’t bother me but it may be an annoyance to some. I used a brush and applied the highlighter to the arch of my brows. The application was slightly easier with a brush but still not the easiest to blend. However, the glow was amazing. It really adds an extra dimension to your make up.
I locked in my make up with the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray. The intensity of the glow lasted a few hours before it started to fade. Although after seven hours you could still see the glow and shimmer.
Whether you’re into a dewy glow or a blinding highlight, I’d recommend this product if you want to try a liquid highlighter. I don’t feel so bad if I squeeze too much out as I would have if I had wasted a £30 highlighter.
Well that’s my take on the Barry M Highlighting Drops, has anyone else tried it? I hope you enjoyed this review. Thanks for reading XOXO.
