Barry M Moonlight and Starlight For Boots

Left: Moonlight* Right: Starlight*
Barry M are on fire at the moment with their new ranges. We have been completely overwhelmed by the sheer volume of new polishes they have released but oh-so-pleased! We have always been huge Barry M fans and the new collections have not let us down. Even though we aren't huge glitter fans we were very excited by these two exclusive polishes created for Boots: Moonlight* and Starlight*. 
First up we have Moonlight*. I swatched this over Barry M's Nightshade* from their new permanent shades. I am so sorry for this photograph, my camera did not pick up these glitters very well at all, particularly this combo. For amazing macro shots take a peek of The Naily Mail's recent post

This glitter is unlike anything else in my collection and I think it will be great as an easy update for the party season but it's not my thing for every day. 
Next up is Starlight*. This was used over Barry M's Coconut*. I actually really liked this glitter over the pale base, I think it worked well. It's more of a subtle look than the one above which I enjoyed. 

As glitters go these two are fun and different to others that we've seen from the mainstream brands. The little stars in both were cute touches but not enough came out for my liking. Formula-wise these apply like most glitters: a little bit thick. However, they didn't need much placement for good coverage - both swatches show one coat. 

How do you feel about the new Boots exclusives?




  1. So far so.. like something I already own. These are nice but I don't think they're anything new! Unlike the new Aquarium polishes - I actually had to order Atlantis because I couldn't find it in stock anywhere!

    1. As someone who isn't a huge glitter fan they are unlike others in my collection and there are some random shapes thrown in that I haven't seen before but they aren't extraordinary enough to make me think 'wow'! Both of the new Aquarium polishes are definite standouts - good choice. Emma.x

  2. Barry M really has been killing it lately. Loved the whole fall Gelly collex and I loved the Aquarium collex. I also just picked up Rose Quartz and Diamond glitters, and although I think Rose Quartz may have been around for a minute, I hadn't seen either of them before and I love them both. Now if Superdrug would just leave them on 3 for 2, my life would be sorted!

    1. Rose Quartz is a beauty. It looks good over so many shades. Diamond is one of our regular go-tos for a bit of extra sparkle. They may be oldies but they are definitely goodies! E&J.xx
