Barry M have made quite the name for themselves since their initial launch in the 80's. Founded by Barry Mero in 1982, the brand specialized in creating vibrant, show-stopping nail varnishes and makeup palettes that dominated the market.
Barry Mero himself had toyed with the idea of creating a beauty brand from a young age. In fact, it all pretty much started when he began selling nail polish from his mother's front garden.
During the mid 80's, Barry set up a factory and launched a selection of 100 Barry M Nail Paints. After years of hard work and graft, Barry M had earned their title as one of the most colorful names in British cosmetics.
Realizing that consumers had a true desire for color, Barry set about creating even more pigmented cosmetics and even became the first to launch a white eyeliner and offer fluorescent nail colours.
Today, Barry M is distributed amongst a huge array of stores and are love globally for their saturated, vibrant color cosmetics.
