Barry M Mushroom NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 7 - 2010

Oh, I wasn’t expecting not to like you.

You’re a little bit greige gone wrong… too much grey or maybe too much brown… I’m all confused and can’t pinpoint what it is that I don’t like about your colour.  But you’re just not quite right for me.

You were a bit patchy too.  Though I totally admire you pouncing on the latest trends and bringing us great colours at affordable prices… you disappointed me with this one.

I’m sad.  Did I get a duff bottle?  Mine did apply a lot darker than the bottle colour suggested… everyone else seems to love it?!

    I don’t think I love this colour either XX

  2. Grace London says:

    It looks a bit like the colour of baby poo. I think it’s a bit too brown, and has a little bit of yellow in it.

  3. caz says:

    I love it! Im not a greige person so Im loving that its darker and browner than it looks. yum.

  4. Janie says:

    Awwww.. I’m so sad for this colour.
    As a fellow taupe/greige fiend I agree, too much brown!!

    What a shame! I love barry m dazzledust in m ushroom! This reminds me more of the dazzledust in chocolate. Maybe not for the nails!!

  6. Lily says:

    Every swatch I’ve seen of this shade seems to vary. Maybe if you mixed a light grey or nude pink into it?

  7. liloo says:

    This is gorgeous. Love your 4th and 5th finger in it.
    gorgeous colour for a barry m.
    unusually not too flat (i.e creme) for a barry m.
    7/10 overall

    it looks like doo doo =0/

  9. Rae says:

    Maybe it’s because of your fair skintone? It *is* pretty dark… with a lot of gold/brown where there *should* be grey :(

    (Then again, if I change the colour settings on my monitor juuuust a touch, it looks AWESOME.)

  10. Charlee says:

    Oh dear, I though it would be more grey…from this pic I do not like either! x

    All of my Barry M nail polishes seem to apply darker than in the bottle – it makes me a little sad because while they’re still pretty colours, I fall in love with the shade in the bottle!! :(

  13. Jenni says:

    Yes, it proved darker on me than I expected. Slightly saddened. If I’d paid big money I’d be a pit peeved about the discrepancy between the bottle colour and the actuality.

  14. Harpreet says:

    oh i dont like the colour. It reminds me of the browny bit of bird poo lol

  15. Lizzard says:

    aww :( u can always exchange?

  16. gio says:

    I don’t really like this color too much either, it’s a bit too brown for me.

  17. LeanneOCD says:

    Hmmmm I can’t decide if I love it, or hate it!?!? Confused…

  18. Rebecca says:

    I haven’t bought this one yet, simply because I have a few greiges already that I really like…might give it a miss! I love No7 Beanie atm.

  19. Deborah says:

    I’m surprise to say it but I really like the colour. Not a shade I could pull off but there’s something about it that’s working for me.

  20. It actually looked slightly different on each nail which was completely odd, I think it was the patchiness…

    I shall go back to my Pink Flamingo which is a freakin’ joy to wear!

  21. Julia says:

    looks too brown…on this screen.

  22. michelle says:

    Probably better suited to those with darker skin (women of colour). I really like it but wouldn’t describe colour as being a griege / more a medium greyish-brown, that apllies darker than it appears in the bottle.
