I was excited when I heard Barry M were bringing out a range of blushers because I knew the colours would be fantastic and I was not disappointed.
I have so many blushers so I resisted Raspberry's charms at first but it was futile. I fell in love after a good swatching session in Superdrug one dark and dreary December afternoon.
I'm not so crazy about the packaging - it looks cheap, plastic and tacky, but I do love the colour payoff.
(I wouldn't necessarily wear the blusher as heavy as it is in the swatches)
It is marketed as a sheer blusher but I disagree as it's so easy to over apply - you only need a small dab and you have to blend LOTS to avoid looking like a clown. The upside of this is that it lasts for ages! I've also managed to successfully use this as an eyeshadow.
It also says on the website that the blushers "contain the anti-oxidant Vitamin E to protect and condition the skin and keep it smooth and supple." Though I can't say that I've noticed any difference in my skin in regards to that.....
At £4.50 for 7g, I think it's a bit pricey compared to Sleek blushers which are £3.29 for 8g (and their packaging is far nicer). I don't think I would repurchase this colour again but I would like to try out their more muted colours like Rose and Teracotta.
