Barry M White Foundation

You know those products, that no matter how much you google you'll never find enough information about it? Maybe the odd blog post that just includes stock images (nowt wrong with them) but no swatches either? Barry M White Foundation is one of those products

So here's my review!

I'm not pale enough to wear it alone (besides I really don't think it would be very flattering to do so) so I mix it with Revlon ColorStay in Sand Beige, which is the second lightest colour. I bought it after one of those ha stuff you foundation I'm not gonna buy the lightest colour for once and I'm gonna make it work! Needless to say, I didn't make it work.

This is the process I go through to mix the two. You'd be forgiven for thinking the Barry M was a moisturiser its so creamy. And it is 'enriched with moisturisers' after all...

It's such a basic product but you do get loads in the pot, and it really does work. Here it is on my face in all it's glory

My face matches my neck!

If you've got any questions just ask below :) I think it cost umm £6.19 but I know it'll last ages

On a side note, I wouldn't really recommend the other Barry M shades, I don't think the foundation would be hmm, comfortable enough to wear alone all over the face. Maybe a bit cakey and heavy.
Let me know what you think!

  1. Ah brilliant! This is the first review I've read about this product. I became aware of it when S Walker mentioned it in a video on YouTube, but haven't heard much on it!

    Excellent review xx

  2. Haha good on you for beating the system! ;)
    Anyway aside from that, that's a really good idea, I may have to invest and could I just say you look GORGEOUS in your picture, and I adore your hair, it just looks stunning *envy*


  3. I need this! I'm so pale :( I was just worried about the quality, but as you like it I'll pick it up, it looks great on you xx

  4. i swatched this on my hand the other day and i really hated the creamy feeling. i figured it would feel like a deathmask on my face! but foundation is always too dark for me so this seems like a good solution. how does it feel mixed in with another foundation? is it no longer heavy? it looks really good & natural on you xx

  5. I love your blog :D
    I am following you! Take a look at my blog and, if you want, follow me too :D


  6. wow, you look gorgeous! Love the rosy cheeks and lips. The foundation makes you look super radiant!

  7. You are bleeding gorgeous I tell thee! I've spotted the Barry M foundations in Superdrug but atm I'm currently happy with my Nars Sheer Glow. :D xo

  8. i really want to get this! I dont think they sell it in ireland though :( i might try get it online :) x

  9. Thank you for the review :)
    Helps me a lot...

  10. Just what I was looking for ! I might buy this to mix with my Revlon Colorstay in Buff as that is STILL too dark for me but the Ivory is too pink for my yellow undertone skin!
