Barry Mero You Rock My World


I may have mentioned this before - I love Barry M cosmetics.  I luuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrve them! Particularly the nail paint range.  In fact I adore it so much I felt a tribute post was necessary.

My candy coloured collection of loveliness

Colour and glitter and colourful glitter

I thought I better do a quick Google search to find out a bit more about the history of the company and the man himself.  Founded in 1982 by Barry Mero.  A cosmetics retailer who started out trading at his mother's market stall in London.  A savvy gent with an eye for colour, he had soon realised that the big cosmetics brand were offering nothing for the goths, punks, drag queens, artists, rebellious teenagers and all round lovers of colour out there... Er...  then he conquered the world!



And look he's so cute.  Like somebody's granddad

When searching I found this interview from The Guardian.  I'm an even bigger fan after reading it.  What a cool guy!


 Of course other brands are available

But Barry M you will always have my heart!
