Barry M's new pencils

Barry M has come out with 2 new pencils that i immediately knew i'd need. The Eyeshadow Pencil and Bold Waterproof Eyeliner pencils. Oh Barry M, how i love you! These are my new favourite pencils to use and thank goodness for them coming out now that i wont be buying any more Urban Decay pencils. These are on a par , if not even better than UD's  pencils in quality and texture. Both pencils cost £3.99 each, but Barry M often do offers that's how i got all mine!
I have at the moment 3 eyeshadow pencils and 3 Bold eyeliners
Eyeshadow pencils - Gunmetal 04, Midnight Blue 06 and Purple 07
Bold Eyeliners - Black, Silver and Purple.

The eyeshadow pencils are intense, creamy pencils with the shades being metallic and shimmery. They all go on easily either direct from the pencil or via a brush (i prefer a brush, so i've 'decanted' the pencil waxes into little pots) I like to use these as a base for eyeshadows as they make shimmery shadows stand out and make matt shadows appear more luxe, like velvet. I hope Barry M bring out more colours as so far there is also a green , brown , copper and a white gold pencil. I'd love to see more primary shades and a pure black and white in the same formula.

The Bold eyeliners are just gorgeous, The black is black hole black, no light escapes from the dark depths! The silver is pure molten silver and the purple is a wonderful glittery royal purple, the glitter being microfine and also purple. The texture is gel like and they set quite fast. These can also be used a a base or on their own. Barry M also do a glittery green, Blue and metallic gold and copper colours.

Now for more swatches to show off their lovelyness!

Bugger! I wish I'd seen these when I was in London. They sound perfect for the waterline.
