Review: Barry M Dazzle Dust in 92 Aqua gold and 97 Dark chocolate!

Dazzle me please! After having had a taste of Barry M Dazzle Dust with the help of my lovely friend Becky (check out her blog here!), I knew I wanted more! I managed to get two more shades when I met up with Pam from "The Jade in the Palace" Beauty blog (here!) and so here they are!

Check out my first review of my first 3 Dazzle dusts here!

Barry M Dazzle Dust in 92 Aqua gold and 97 Dark chocolate
Packaging & Product!

In neat little glass jars, I really like how tiny these are and yet so full of product that I don't think I'm going to finish these anytime soon! These have their number stickered on the bottoms but I wish they names were also on the bottom or cap somewhere!

These two shades were brought to me when I met up with Pam from "Jade in the Palace" blog! I actually wanted far more shades including Coral and Winter Berry but seemingly 70% of their shades are sold out online! I think the popularity of these are just through the roof and I hope they restock these in the next few months!

Aqua Gold is a very neat shade, in person its very blue teal with a fine coating of golden shimmer through it however when applied on top of a base it turns out to be very green turquoise!

The Dark Chocolate is a very special shade! First in the jar when you tilt it around it looks like its a duochrome of gold and brown, the golden shimmer is so fine in the product its such a beautiful quality. I've yet to use it but I'm sure it'd make an amazing dark neutral eye.

Swatches of Barry M Dazzle Dust in 92 Aqua gold and 97 Dark chocolate
Aqua gold looks like a brilliant teal shot with golden shimmer! However when used wet it comes off as very green!
Dark chocolate, looks like a charcoal deep brown with a slight golden shimmery quality. Looks like a green duochrome at first glance!
Using Aqua gold on top of Maybelline's Tenacious Teal cream shadow with Bad to the Bronze! Check out my look here!
Overview of all my shades!

My Barry M Dazzle Dusts collection in 92 Aqua Gold, 97 Dark Chocolate, 98 Petrol Black, 89 Oyster Grey, 51 Mushroom!

Paid: £4.59 or about $7 USD

Recommend: Yes! I really really want more shades! But I've recently received a huge order from Shiro cosmetics of a bunch of loose pigments that I chose in sample sizes!

Repurchase: Yes! If the shades I want come into stock I will try to get them!

Bottom line: These are amazing. In terms of their pigmentation, how so many of these are almost duochrome with the golden/silver shimmers in them. They are so smooth and easy to use, they work best on a base of some sort and layer well with other shadows!

Do you have any loose pigments you love using?
Tried any Dazzle Dusts before?
let me know!
