I got these Barry M Dazzle Dusts a while ago and I played with them a lot (and the pots are still full) and I must say I'm really impressed about the quality for such an affordable price. At first when I saw these colourful pots I was like a child in a candy shop... I wanted them all !!! Well I only got 8 shades for the moment...

Dazzle Dusts are not like MAC pigments, don't have that unctuous or chunky texture, they're more smooth and soft, but they're a little bit messy when opening the pot and applying the powder (it would be great if they had sifters), but I can skip that, it's ok :)
Otherwise they're extremely pigmented and are available in a very wide range of colours (any colour you can imagine), over 100 shades.
I just loooove them! The color payoff is awesome even without primer or base, but I recommend using primer just to keep them in place.
You can use them dry or wet as eyeshadows, eyeliners, blush, as an illuminator for cheeks, mix them with your lip glosses, lipsticks or body lotions.
They're really cool and inexpensive, they have very interesting and special shades, duochromes...I highly recommend having these magic little pots.
My very favourite colour is Petrol Black which is black with turquoise glitter and violet shimmer, it is GORGEOUS.
What are your favorites?
I also have three Barry M Lip Paints in Marshmallow a creamy texture, the shade looks like a light concealer, Palest Lavender a creamy, shiny, moisturising texture and Peachy Pink which has a very opaque matte texture.
