A few days back I went to Superdrugs at Birmingham City Center and spotted some fantastic deals [on cosmetic products! Obviously!]. One of them was the Barry M 'Get the Look' Gift set, the price of which had come down to £7.99 and as only a few were left I grabbed some for myself! This set contains 3 Barry M loose pigments - Violet star, Candy Floss and Berry Pink and comes with a makeup brush which I find is good for blending and contouring purpose. For those of you who are unaware - Barry M is a drugstore brand based in the UK. Barry M's eye shadows are made with high quality ingredients and are well pigmented and come in a huge spectrum of shades to choose from and best of all are not priced very high!
Violet Star is more of a glitter pigment, Candyfloss is a beautiful shimmery peachy pink, Berry Pink is an intense bright magenta color.
Its a good brush for blending and contouring
A look that I created using all of the above three pigments:)
I also picked up a few make up brushes by a brand called FAMOUS by Sue Moxley, a brand I think is exclusive to Superdrugs. These brushes normally retail for £6 to £10 but I was lucky to get it on a clearance sale price by paying £2 each for the five small brushes and £4 for the big powder brush [RRp £10]. As they were a fantastic bargain I just couldn't resist the temptation to buy them! Do I recommend these brushes? Yes! These are very good brushes for the bargain price I paid! I am loving the clear brush handle and overall quality is good, the big powder brush is the best of the bunch, its big enough for a quick application of powder and I also find myself reaching for it for my blush application, although I must admit, it sheds a little bit but not heavily at all. Overall, I am chuffed to have found these cuties!

So guys, If you fancy getting yourself some good makeup brushes for a low price, grab the FAMOUS brushes while the clearance lasts!
