On my weekly trip to Boots (no judgment, it’s all for research purposes,right?) :). I came across these new Barry M Illuminating Strobe Cream Sticks.
Stobing is such a buzz word in the beauty industry at the moment. I like to just think of it as good oul highlighting myself.
Anyways the new Barry M Illuminating Strobe Cream Sticks are bascially cream highlighters in twist-able chubby stick form.
They come in two shades and are part of Barry M’s new Summer collection.
The first one is aptly named 1 and is in the colour Frosty Pink.
The second one is 2 Iced Bronze.
The Barry M Illuminating Strobe Cream have a really light texture to them. It nearly feels oil like on your fingers, but then when you apply them to the skin they dry and blend in really nicely to give the skin a really subtle sheen. If you are looking for your highlight to be seen from space, I don’t think these will work for you 🙂 Although, there is two colours, I think they both have a really similar colour effect when blended in.
For someone like who is on the oilier side (skin wise), I can’t get away with the ‘healthy’ skin look, sure my skin does that to itself after a little while as it eats up all my lovingly applied makeup 🙂
So I would use the Barry M Illuminating Strob Cream as more of a base for a powder highlighter.
Here’s Frosty Pink with theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer applied on top (I have a review of this on it’s here).
And then here’s 2 Iced Bronze with Becca Champagne Pop applied over top. (There’s a review of this here too, if you’re interested).
You can pick up the Barry M Illuminating Strobe Cream from Boots in store or online here. They will set you back €6.49, but Barry M are currently on buy one get one half price. Do they float your strobing boat? Let me know 🙂
