Pressed Barry M Pigments

Ok, so I had a bit of a quiet night last night and decided to press the rest of my pigments. I don’t have many, but I thought that I might reach for them a bit more if they were in a pan rather than having loose eye shadow all over the place! I always would have used a brush with Fix + sprayed on it, but hopefully now I wont have to.

To press my Barry M pigments I used Lipglossiping’s pressing method, It works amazingly well! All of my pressed dazzle dusts look so pigmented and pretty! But I will let pictures do the talking 😉

These took forever to dry, hence why they don’t look exactly like a pressed pigment should really look like. I wanted to go to bed at some stage! But I pressed them the best I could 🙂

They look gorgeous right!? I love them so much! I have ordered 3 more off ebay, so hopefully they will come soon and I will get to show you a few more!

I also tried to press my MAC pigment, Heritage Rouge… It didnt turn out the greatest…

Its ok, but just doesn’t feel as nice on the skin like the Barry M pressing method. I will use less of the mixing medium I think next time I do this.

How many of you do this? Do you find it works well for you?


p.s. The palette was ordered off ebay from Hong Kong, it is a palette of 26 and comes with the pans. Its not magnetised, but I find a bit of sellotape works just as well 😉 for around £5 you cant go wrong!
