Barry M Dazzle Dusts – Swatches

Thanks to the lovely Erline, I have 3 Barry M Dazzle Dusts, and I’ve now swatched them for you!

My three shades:
Petrol Black – black with aqua reflects, super sparkly
Bright Indigo – blue-purple indigo shade, nearly matte
Burgundy Noir – shimmery burgundy shade in a black base, super sparkly

I swatched these on UDPP (though I normally swatch on Aromaleigh Light Primer).

The only color that I can think of that is close to Petrol Black is Fyrinnae Biker Chic, so that’s a very good color for anyone who is lemming Petrol Black and doesn’t have access to the Dazzle Dusts.


I think Petrol Black looks awesome :)

I believe that these shades are vegan, according to the ingredients listing on the Barry M site. The site is cool because it lists the shades that are not vegan safe, and these 3 weren’t on that list.

Has anyone tried Dazzle Dusts? If so, what are your favorite shades?

      • Phyrra

        Aww, you’re quite welcome MissTat! I need to check and see if Fyrinnae Incubus is a close color to Burgundy Noir.

      Is the Indigo shade more sparkly in person? It looks very matte while the other two are super sparkly.

      • Phyrra

        The indigo shade is very matte.

      i have the cherry red and it’s an awesome bright dark pink-red shade. i really like the barry m formula, a little goes a long way and it blends like a dream. if they were easier to get here i’d buy more but the shades are not unique enough to bother when the exchange rate is not in my favor.

      • Phyrra

        That makes sense, Spooki!

      I used to have Petrol Black, but the glitter fall out was ridiculous so I gave it away…The Barry M metallic shades are gorgeous!

      • Phyrra

        What are your favorite metallic shades?

      Oh wow, Black Petrol is so nice!
      I wonder if it looks good with brown eyes thought :(

      • Phyrra

        I think you can wear anything with brown eyes!

      Love Dazzle Dusts, they’re a big thing in the UK. I have about 25 and Petrol Black is my favourite for sure. Other faves are Old Gold, Winter Berry and Cherry Red. I know they’re not always that unique but the formula is amazing and that little pot last a billion years.

      • Phyrra

        It’s awesome that you love them!

      I have Biker Chic and it’s an awesome color! I love it! Though, haven’t worn it for a long time… should get back to it :D

      These look lovely, I’ve already heard a lot great stuff about dazzle dusts. Unfortunately, I don’t know where are they available.

      • Phyrra

        They’re available in the UK. Glad you like Biker chic!
