    Barry M Natural Glow Palette

    Hey everyone!

    For our spring swap, Lauren from the beauty habit, sent me the Barry M Natural Glow Palette! Lauren knows how much I love the natural look when it comes to my makeup, so I just knew I would love this palette!

    This palette comes in a sturdy cardboard case that has a magnetic closure. I love that it has six eye shadow colors to choose from, as well as a beautiful baby pink blush! 

    Each eye shadow is soft, and they all look stunning when used either alone or together. Do you see that gorgeous purple shade on the left?! It's my new favorite color to use as a soft wash all over my lids. 

    I love this palette, and I am so grateful that Lauren sent it to me!


    Note: I received this palette as a gift from my dear friend Lauren!
