A Sweet Surprise! (Part I of II) & Barry M Swatches


I got a nice surprise package from Katja, a reader, and a sweet girl that I have gotten to know. I helped her get some products from here since she is international, and I checked my mail to find a nice little surprise!

She HANDCRAFTED and made these necklaces for me herself! She also sent me some nail gems because she knows I am a sucker for things like that! She is such an artiste! Look how colorful and well-drawn her note was! Hehe, thank you so much Katja! :)

I know some of you enjoyed the Barry M post I did awhile back, and a good friend Anastasia went to her local drugstore and was kind enough to share some pictures and swatches of the Barry M Dazzle Dusts. Thanks Anastasia!

rmcandelight- It is only available in the UK, as Anastasia lives in the UK, you can however order their products via their website:

Barry M looks like so much fun. Too bad the currency conversion isn't in our favor :/ But the colors are sooo gorgeous!

fuzkittie said...

That's very very sweet of Katja! Cute necklace~~

Tracy said...

Katja is such a sweetheart for sending you those cute gifts. Thanks to Anastasia for sharing pictures of Barry M. It's too bad they're only in the U.K.

Anastasia said...

Barry M IS awesome. My local Superdrug has the biggest selection, but the staff didn't like me taking pictures =x

Barry M is 3x cheaper than a MAC pigment for me, though, so it's worth buying.

Sometimes Boots do 3-for-2 deals on Barry M, but I haven't seen any yet. I'll post and let people know when they do, in case anyone wants me to send them stuff D:
