Official description of Barry M’s Dazzle Dusts:

“A spectacular collection of breath taking loose, highly pearlised powder available in a profusion of colours to enhance your eyes, cheeks or lips.

Each little pot contains multiple facets of intensive reflective colour that glides on smoothly adding sparkle and sheen.

These luscious shades can be applied bright and bold or shimmering and subtle, with over 60 original colours to choose from everyone can find a favourite pot or two or three… ”

Today I’d like to show you six Dazzle Dusts by Barry M. While I was in England I bought three of them myself and three of them were given to me for review.

99 Bright Indigo is a matte shade of purple. I think it’s a bit too purple (IRL it’s a bit more purple than on some of the photos shown here) to be called a real indigo shade. It’s very pigmented.

84 Cherry Red is a shimmery red shade with pink undertones.

53 Chocolate is a very nice shimmery dark brown.

98 Petrol Black is an interesting shade. At first I thought it’s a regular black based shade with blue shimmer. Well, it is, but as you can see below it also has a bit of purple to it.

92 Aqua Gold is a turquoise shade with gold shimmer. From the photos in this review you can see that sometimes it looks more green and sometimes more blue.

The Dazzle Dust loose powders come in glass containers with a dark cap. The containers remind me of the Gosh containers for effect powders. The Dazzle Dust loose powders are well pigmented and easy to use. I didn’t have any problems with the ones I have. I always apply loose powders over an eyeshadow base. That way they stay in place for hours. You can also use them on the cheeks and lips. Be creative with these babies.

As a bonus I have two make ups for you using mainly the Dazzle Dust loose powders shown above (and some eyeshadows from the Sleek i-Divine Acid and Bad Girl palettes).

Black-green-gold make up… Hightlighting is done with the lightest shades in the Sleek i-Divine Bad Girl palette. Do you see how green the Aqua Gold looks in the photos below?

  1. Zadnje čase (se vidi da se bliža moj letni čas ;)) so mi bolj všeč žive barve, tako da izmed vseh izstopata RED in CHERRY RED.
    MU sta oba lepa :love:

  2. Make upa sta fantastična. :stars: Nobeno presenečenje, da mi je prvi najbolj všeč. :whistle:
    Kar se tiče prahcev, so mi pa vsi všeč. Aqua Gold še najbolj. :wub:

  3. Nikoli še nisem uporabljala teh prahcev – imam zelo mastne veke (ob tem pa še malo povešene) tako da mislim da se to na meni ne bi najboljše obneslo. Žal. Na tebi pa super (kot vedno :) ).

    • Hvala. :rose:
      Hmmm … Kaj pa sicer uporabljaš na vekah? Katera senčila? In ali uporabljaš kak primer?
      Čisto iz firbca … ker menim, da je ogromno v samem primerju. Ja, tudi v senčilih, a ta (Dazzle Dust) sama po sebi po moje nimajo velikega potenciala, da bi šla v gubo. (Ker ena senčila so že sama po sebi bolj kremasta na otip.) Morda pa se motim. :think:

      • Senčila uporabljam bolj poredko, ko pa jih je to ponavadi MUF paleta, kakšna senčka od AD, zdaj testiram Sleek paleto pa te quatro Alverde paletke (ne vem iz katere kolekcije) se dobro obnesejo. Za primer uporabim Barry M shimmer svinčnik (sem imela prej AD bazo pa sem po njej dobila izpuščaje). Kljub temu imam ko pridem domov iz službe vse v gubi. Par uric že zdrži cel delavnik pa ne. Se pa presenetljivo dobro na meni obnesejo določeni odtenki KIKO Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow (vijolična, in rjava)…

  4. Moji komplimenti za oba MU-ja, oba sta perfektna, kot vedno. Se kdaj naveličaš tega, da vedno isto govorim? :wink: :blush: Če je pa vedno res! :yes: Mislim, da sem se zaljubila v Petrol Black. Enostavno popoln je. Tudi mat vijolična me mika. Zelo sem vesela tvoje pozitivne ocene, že sem si jih ogledovala pa sem kar cincala, a bi naročila ali ne! Vidim, da bo v prihodnjih mesecih del štipendije šel kar na tole spletno stran, najprej tist setek lakov, zdaj pa še tile pigmentki. :whistle:

    • Oh, kje pa. Lepih komentarjev se človek ne more nikoli naveličati. :blush: :biggrin:
      Oba tvoja “izbranca” sta lepotca. ;) Če si navajena prahcev, potem … po moje ti ne bo žal…

    • Res so lepe! :wub: Dejansko bi se težko odločila, katera mi je najbolj všeč in katera najmanj. Vse so lepe in uporabne, če jih le dobro kombiniraš. :cute:

  5. I love the first look you made – it’s right up my alley. Chocolate and Aqua Gold are gorgeous.

    • I totally agree with you. Bright Indigo is an amazing shade! Bright (and vivid) and dark at the same time. :thumb:
      Thank you! :rose:

  6. ojoj, zame je ljubezen na prvi pogled s Petrol Black senčilom! :stars: in kakšen makeup… huh! :thumb:

  7. They are so pretty :thumb:

    I think you made a perfect combination here – Red, Cherry Red and Bright Indigo – looks like a cute parokeet :crown:
    Aqua Gold and Petrol Black is super nice too.

    Like it. :yes:

  8. Barry M Dazzle Duste senčil v prahu še nisem sporbala… ampak glede na videno jih bo treba. :yes: Popolna MU-ja! :stars: Bravo! :bow:

    • Jaz mislim, da ti ne bo žal, če si kak DD privoščiš. ;) Z mokrom nanosom pridejo še bolj intenzivni in šimer pride bolj do izraza. Kateri odtenki pa te mikajo?
      Hvala za komentar! :rose:

      • Zaenkrat sem še bolj pri naravnih barvah, zato bi začela pri kakšnih rjavih barvah. :) Nisem še toliko drzna kot ti. :wink:
