Barry M Lemon Ice Cream - Swatches

I've finally made a Facebook page for my blog, and I'd be really grateful if you could take a second and 'like' it for me - 

It's not finished yet, I'm still adding stuff and it'll probably take me ages because I don't understand Facebook :P I don't even know how to get a widget for it on here so people can like it. Gah!

Anyway, I'm in an ice cream kind of mood today. Has anyone tried those Ben & Jerry's core things? Ugh, they should be made illegal for being so fatteningly amazing. I digress.

This is Lemon Ice Cream from Barry M, it's part of a set of four 'ice cream' shades.

It's a bright lemon, pastel creme (can something be bright AND pastel at the same time? Well, this is!) and I am not sure how well it goes with my olive skin.

It's very, very...yellow. I enjoy it though. Formula is typical of a pastel creme (a little thin and streaky) but also has the typical smoothness of a Barry M, so it balances out. I used three thin coats, but there's still a tiny bit of visible nail line.

It looks much yellower in some lights (above)
