Oooh! Loaners! Loaners of some of the Barry M Molten Metal collection!
These four imported pretties are from Terralia’s Archives. She’s just down the street from me in Toronto but she hopped the pond to the UK and came back with these. When asked if I wanted to borrow for swatchin’, I was all “Yes, please!” So? Wanna see?

Barry M Gold Rush – Molten Metal 2017 (above). I didn’t think I’d like this one as much as I do. Looking at it in the bottle, I thought it was going to be too much yellow gold for my skin, but it really isn’t. There’s pink in there that neutralizes some of the yellow and makes it a-ok for me to sport. That’s 3 coats to melty, foil-y, shimmery gold.
Barry M Bronze Bae – Molten Metal 2017 (above). It’s 2 fantastically easy coats to this silvery-bronze foil. It’s just good.
Barry M Copper Mine – Molten Metal 2017 (above). Weirdly, these are up on the Barry M website as “chrome effect with a mirror shine foil finish.” Huh. I don’t see chrome. I see foil. But whatevz, right? No matter what you wanna call ‘em, the ones I have here are all great. This rosy-copper deal is 2 coats and is 100% perfect for Fall.
Barry M Holographic Lights – Molten Metal 2017 (above). Lastly, Terralia picked up this one. That’s 3 coats and it’s called Holographic Lights. Hmm… Here, inside at my desk, there’s maybe a slight rainbow on my pinky, but that’s about it for holo. I wonder what’ll happen…
Barry M Holographic Lights with side salad (above). You know “side salad” is code for grass, right? With side salad and a punch of light, I popped rainbows. No unicorns come flying out of this deal, and that’s okay with me because I actually prefer the softness of this kind of subtle holo pigment – it always seems more refined to me.
So that’s it! On barrym.com it looks like there might be a total of 10 shades. From what I saw on the Barry M Instagram a short while ago, there’s a “3 for 2” sale on these at superdrug.com (they’ve got 9 shades). I don’t have any clue when the sale started, or when it ends. All I know is that I can’t get these in Canada so I’m wicked-glad that #JJWuzHere.
