If I am honest I wasn’t really that excited or in fact even interested by the fact that H&M were launching a new beauty line. They had a smaller collection of beauty bits before that were pretty boring and looked cheap and I suppose I wasn’t expecting too much. Although after seeing the line in full I have to say I am totally digging this new collection by H&M and obviously had to pick up a couple of pieces! I have to say I am pretty impressed at the range and some of the packaging looks super chic especially those hexagon blushes! Although I limited myself to just two things from the range and thought I would give you my lowdown to my first taster of H&M Beauty.
They had an incredibly impressive range of eyeshadow products with cream eyeshadows, beautiful palettes and eye pencils. I went with one of the single eyeshadows or should I say High Impact Eye colours in the shade Robusta. When it comes to eyeshadow I always gravitate to my usual bronze-y and brown shades. The shade ‘Robusta’ is a gorgeous deep bronze-y gold shade. The shade can be worn lightly as a sheer wash of colour or built up to full colour in which it boasts impressive pigmentation. The formula blends easily on the lids and also lasts really well during the day. At £4.99 it’s a complete bargain and I will definitely need to try out more shades from the brand!
Next up surprisingly is a lip gloss. Now I say surprisingly because you may or may not be aware but I am not really a lip gloss fan. I don’t like the stickiness and it all just pretty much reminds me of being a little girl with a tube of thick gloopy gloss. Not pretty! Now when I went to buy this I actually thought I was buying a liquid lipstick and then soon realised my mistake as I tried this on back home and of course read the label… silly me! However I actually really like this. I picked up the shade Tuscan Blush which is a gorgeous rosy mauve colour that is a perfect everyday colour for the Autumnal months. Now the reason I really like this is that it isn’t like your average lip gloss, it boasts a high pigmented colour that lasts really well on the lips but also the formula isn’t overly sticky in any way, it feels super comfortable. I would definitely consider picking up another couple of gloss shades, I am without a doubt a lip gloss convert…
