Barry M | Spring 2016 Launch

So...something exciting happened... I was invited to the launch event for Barry M's new SS16 collection! The event was held at the beautiful St Martin's Lane Hotel, in Covent Garden and it was amazing. Although I've always been a bit lazy with nails, it's something I'm getting more into at the moment and Barry M has always been one of my go-to brands for nail polishes, so I was particularly excited to see what they have in store for Spring 2016*

 Gelly Nail Paints | £3.99

Gelly Nail Paints (L-R) : Cream Soda | Butterscotch Sundae | Pink Lemonade | Acai Smoothie 
The Gelly Nail Paints are super long lasting on the nails and they honestly shine for days! The new collection contains 4 gorgeous pastel shades which I can't wait to wear on my nails.
The new collection is available now in Boots, and will be available in Superdrug from 10th February.

Sunset Nail Paints | £4.99

Sunset Nail Paints (L-R) : Daylight Curing Top Coat | Bug A Blue | All The Things She Red | Empire State of Mint | Pinking Out Loud
The Sunset Nail Paint collection is one of my favourites from Barry M, so when I saw the new collection, I basically died and went to heaven! The colours are divine! These daylight curing nail paints are a great alternative to gel/shellac nails, a lot more budget friendly and a lot less hassle, as you don't need a UV lamp. They are also super shiny and long lasting on the nails, and my favourite shades from the new collection are 'All The Things She Red' and 'Empire State of Mint'! 
All you have to do is apply a couple of coats of your favourite colour, and then set it with a thin layer of the Sunset Daylight Curing Topcoat - simples.

The Spring 16 Sunset Nail Paint collection will be launching on the 10th of February in Superdrug and on the 17th of February in Boots. 

Speedy Nail Paints | £3.99

Speedy Nail Paints (L-R) : Winning Streak | Freestyle |  In a Flash | Personal Best
As I mentioned before, I can be a bit lazy with my nails, so something that dries as quickly as the Speedy Nail Paints by Barry M is perfect for me. It dries within a few seconds and you don't have to worry about your nail polish smudging or smearing!
The new collection is already available in Superdrug and will be available in Boots from the 17th of February, and it contains 4 new pastel colours in the shades 'Winning Streak', ' In a Flash', 'Freestyle' and 'Personal Best'.

'Thats How I Roll' Mascara | £4.99

 Barry M also have a few new launches in their make up collection. 

First up, is the 'That's How I Roll' Mascara, which claims to be an eyelash curler and mascara in one!
I'm particularly intrigued to try this out because mascaras are something that I like to be experimental with. I don't have the longest natural lashes, so anything that claims to define and lengthen my lashes always catches my attention. The wand is designed to lift and roll the lashes to give them a more defined and curled look. I'm looking forward to trying this out.

Shape and Define Brow Kit (Medium) | £5.99

Shape and Define Brow Kit : Medium
 Barry M already had a 'Medium to Dark' Shape and Define Brow Kit, but as part of their Spring 16 launch, they've now introduced the palette in 'Light to Medium'. The 3 step kit contains a brown powder shade, a light wax and a highlight shade to help shape, define and highlight the brows. It comes in a handy little compact, complete with a mirror, mini tweezers and a small applicator for the product, so it would be perfect to use on the go. The product will be launching on 10th February in Superdrug and 17th February in Boots.

Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit | £6.49

Chisel Cheeks Contour Kits | Left : Medium to Dark | Right : Light to Medium
 Last, but not least, Barry M are now introducing a 'Medium to Dark' shade in their Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit. I have the original shade, and have been using it since it was first launched (I love it) but I'm interested to try out the darker bronzing, contour and highlight shades in the new palette, which may be more suited towards my complexion. Personally, I found that the original contour kit worked well for me, but I'm glad that Barry M are introducing a new shade which will be more suitable for darker skin tones.
Like most of the new collection, the new Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit will be available from 10th February in Superdrug and 17th February in Boots.

Finally, I just want to say a massive thank you to the Barry M team for inviting me to the event and for the amazing goody bag -  I'm so excited to play around with all the new products and I hope you're as excited about the Spring 16 Launch as I am!
