Barry M Spring 2014 Gelly Swatches and Review

GELLY! The mere word brings joy to my heart. I, along with many others, am a huge fan of Barry M's fabulous Gelly range, and I have the latest offerings to show you today! (I'm sure you've already seen them but pretend you haven't).

I swatched Barry M's original Gelly collection back in September 2012, and I also reviewed the Spring 2013 and Summer 2013 shades, so I now have all 21 colours swatched on my blog! You can also see the evolution of my swatches, which is weird and interesting (to me, at least). Fun fact: the original swatch post remains my most viewed collection post!

For Spring 2014, we have a set of 3 pale pastels. They dry to a lovely shiny finish as you'd expect, and you'll need 2-3 coats due to the nature of the colours. Super nice, non-streaky formula though! They're also glossy enough to not need top coat.

Sugar Apple is a pale mint. I love the name of this one. I used 3 thin coats, no top coat.

Rose Hip is a pale sugary pink. 3 thin coats, no top coat

Huckleberry (or Huckleburry as my bottle says, must be a mistake!) is a pale baby blue. 3 thin coats, no top coat.

Another lovely set of Gellies from Barry M. I'm wondering if we'll see more for Summer!? 

My Picks: All of them! Sugar Apple is my favourite, though.


Available now from Superdrug, Boots and some Tesco stores, priced £3.99 each. Also available online at



  1. These are super gorgeous! I've wanted these from the first moment I saw them!

  2. Super pretty swatches Allie. I loved looking back at your other swatches from the Gelly collection :)

  3. Even from your pictures alone, it's easy to tell these are good quality! Love the pastels colors!

  5. These are prefect for spring! I think Sugar Apple is my favourite! I cannot wait to see the shades Barry M releases for summer too! :)

  6. Beautiful swatches as always, Allie! I love that your bottle says 'Huckleburry' haha!
    I really hope we do see more Gellies for summer - that would be great!

  7. I love all three, I only have Huckleberry for now though - I'll have to see if mine says Huckleburry too!

  8. Huckleberry really reminds me of the Bourjois Ciel mon vernis I picked up just recently...Definitely need to get the Rose hip though :)

  9. Gorgeous colours, I really want to pick these up! :)

  10. I want rosehip! I already have huckleberry xx

  11. They're wonderful. I'm keen on pastel colours.

  12. I'm going to have to get that blue. I've been trying to convince myself I don't need it, but I do. Darnit.

  13. They are absolutely lovely, and now I want all of them!

  14. Love them all! Just such pretty colours for spring and summer. :D
