Swatches: Barry M Dazzle Dust in Mushroom #51

A rummage at the Barry M counter in Superdrug the other day yielded one of their famous Dazzle Dust eyeshadows in Mushroom (or #51, as they only seem to have names on the website).  It's a slightly pinky toned taupe shade, with pink and silver sparkles - very wearable.

Like most of the Dazzle Dusts, it has a very reflective finish, with a pretty metallic sheen.

Paired with a smudge of plum eyeliner and a lot of black mascara, it makes for a flattering neutral eye which is pared down enough to go with bold lips or cheeks.  Bit of a bargain for just £4.50ish!

Barry M Dazzle Dusts are available from Superdrug, or direct from Barry M's website.  Fun fact: I grew up in North London, and used to drive with my parents past a warehouse sporting two signs: one giant lipstick, and one saying Barry M.  It was significantly less popular in those days; now, whenever I pull out a Barry M product, I'm reminded of that warehouse, and that sign.

Anyway - what do you think?  What are your favourite neutrals?  Let us know in the comments!


  1. That's really pretty, I might have to pick it up for myself!

  2. Aaah Mushroom, that was one of my first Barry M DD's! I do like it on the crease with Old Gold dazzle dust on the lid.
