Barry M All Night Long Foundation

This week Barry M launches its new All Night Long collection. The range consists of primer sticks, foundation sticks and all night long concealer and will be in Superdrug stores from 26th March.

Firstly I'll briefly touch on the primer sticks. These cost £6.99 each and are available in 'Original' and 'Anti-Redness'. They are solid primers that glide over the skin to provide a base for foundation.

Next is the All Night Long Full Coverage Concealer. I haven't got round to trying these yet but have heard great things! It costs £4.49 and is available in six shades: Milk, Oatmeal, Cookie, Almond, Waffle and Hazelnut. It is a liquid concealer with an applicator wand.

The product from the range I'm going to be focusing on is the All Night Long Medium Coverage Foundation. This costs £6.99 and is available in eight shades, which are all said to be buildable: Milk, Cashew, Oatmeal, Cookie, Almond, Waffle, Fudge and Hazelnut.

There aren't a huge amount of shades available but it does cover a range of skin tones. I struggled to choose which suited me best so tried both Cookie and Almond together. I've never tried a stick foundation before and wasn't too sure how to go about using this formula - so I just applied it directly to my face and blended with a sponge.

At first use I didn't think the coverage was great, however, it does state it is medium and buildable coverage so it would probably take a couple of layers if you like a fuller coverage. The finished look is more natural. I'd also try applying it with the primer as my skin is quite dry and I found it more effective to blend it with a damp sponge.

The foundation sticks can also be used for contouring and highlighting too - just use one either a couple of shades darker or lighter than your usual skin tone.

While I don't think I'll use this as my daily foundation I'll keep it in my handbag for touch-ups on the go as the stick format makes it easy to apply and really handy for travelling.
