Eyeshadow Dust Haul!

This weekend I have been stocking up on eyeshadow dusts, I have chosen colours which I know many of you will already have as they are classics and will work with a number of different looks. First up we have the infamous Barry M Glitterdust in Number 4 and the Dazzledusts in Numbers 31 and 44;

Number 4 is a silver glitter dust, this can be used in so many ways. You can place it on top of your favourite eyeshadow look to make it even more special for a night out, or you can use it on other parts of your face and body, be warned though it can take quite a bit of washing off! I also picked up number 31, which is a lilac colour, it's very pale and good for adding just a bit of colour to your outer eye and along the crease. Number 44, is a beautiful bronze colour with shimmers of gold, this colour is AMAZING and I highly recomend it. I can see this being repurchased again and again.

The photograph above shows swatches of the 3 dusts, as you can see the dazzeldusts are very pigmented and I can't wait to start working them in to more looks!

I also picked up some bargain basement dusts;

Up first is a highly pigmented UV dust, the only name it has on it is "Jayne" it was picked up for £1.99 in a small store here called Danglers, I don't usually shop in there, but I thought this dust would be fun for creating some crazy eyeshadow looks while over in Ibiza next month. I also picked up 2 Stargazer 'eye dusts' from New Look, reduced from £3.50 each to 50p! It'd be rude to pass them up! I chose Number 14 which is a dark purple and Number 18 which is a pure black dust.

As you can see from the swatches they are all increadibly pigmented. I'm thinking of mixing the pink dust with some of the shadows from my Beauty UK 'Brights' pallette. I'm hoping to get those looks up soon, although I have unfortunally broken out in spots at the moment, so I'm going to hold out until they've calmed down!

So, what are your favourite dazzledusts? Any recomendations?


  1. Wow, the Stargazer dusts look great! x

  2. I have the Barry M #44! Love it! I especially love it applied with a wet brush.
    I've been eying up those Stargazer bargains too.
