In my last post I have talked about a makeup haul that I did. I have picked up a few bits from H&M to try out. Now that I have used the products I can tell you what I think of them.
I have got 2 H&M nail polishes and so far I have been enjoying wearing them. They don’t last on me super long but they don’t chip super quick either, just an ordinary lasting power. Pearl Bisque is a pearlescent white and I really like it for this time of the year. It’s got that holiday sheen and is not a stark white. Purple Aurora (pictured above) is a duochrome purple with a hint of metallic green. I’m not sure if the duochrome effect translates once the nail polish is on the nails but I think it is still a nice colour.
I really like creamy liquid like eyeshadows so when I saw H&M Fluid Hues Eye Colour I knew I had to give it a try and I can tell you that it’s love. These are very pigmented & stay on the eyelids for the whole day. You need to work with them fairly fast cause once they set they do set. You can use your fingers to blend out if you fancy so it makes it a very easy use eyeshadow. The colour I got is Shifting Sands which is a beautiful light bronze.
I have to admit that I have not had time to try the H&M Treasured Eye Gems but I can’t wait to find the perfect occasion to whip these babies out.
Overall I am very impressed with the H&M makeup and I think that they are great purchases. I am now thinking that maybe I should go and get some more items from them. If you have tried anything let me know how stuff worked for you.
You know when you’re smooching in a shop and you spot something and think to yourself “why not give this a try, can’t hurt me anyways cause it’s not that expensive”, no? Just me? Well, that’s what happened when I was in H&M recently. I was looking at their makeup range which a lot of people have rated as quite good but my curiosity was turned on when I saw their Precision Sponge makeup applicator on the shelve. I have been converted to applying my foundation and concealer with wet makeup sponge and therefore I am quite keen to try and find the best ones that are out there right now.
H&M Precision Sponge costs only £2 so that’s a first bonus. It’s the cheapest makeup up sponge applicator that I have tried so far. You use it the same way as you would do any other Beautyblender type products, rinse it under water, squeeze out any access water and you good to go. I find that the sponge is quite on a harder feel, meaning that it’s not super bouncy which does remind me of Beautyblender quite a bit. I thought that the colour white was a bad choice for this product as it obviously get’s makeup stains upon the first time you use it but when I have washed the sponge it pretty much got rid of most of the stains straight away (unlike the more expensive counter part) and that impressed me. I don’t think it will stay stainless for long but then none of the other sponges did as well.
If you like applying makeup with sponges or you would like to try then I’d say definitely give H&M Precision Sponge a go. I mean, it’s only £2!
