Hello make up junkies,
as promised on my previous H&M beauty post, I am gonna show you what I bought from this amazingly revamped make up line.
First of all, lips!
Will I ever be able to leave a cosmetics shop without a signature red lipstick? It doesn't look possible.
I got the Velvet lip cream in the shade Le Beau Monde.
It's a deep coral red that applies as a mousse texture but dries out completely matte.
It's incredibly similar in consistency to the MUA Luxe ones but it stays better on the lips and doesn't flake or peel.
The sponge applicator is easy to use but maybe you will need some help from a tiny lip brush to define better the corner of the lips, considering that once it dries out it's difficult to remove it.
It lasted ages but I find the retouches easy to do without really having to remove it before applying a new coat.
Finally, it has got a fruity scent that may not be nice for some of you but I personally don't mind.
For £6.99 I would give it a go.
Eyeshadow!!!! I was tempted to buy all the beiges and browns, they all look so pretty but I was a good girl and I only got this Single Eyeshadow in sun worship.
It has got a kind of metal-frost finish and this particular shade is a fantastic pewter with a silver shine.
This shadow has to be used with a primer to have the perfect result; it doesn't crease without but the shade is quite amplified if applied after a good base.
The last things I got were a couple of cream eyeshadows.
Top marks for the little glass pot, very posh and stylish.
The consistency is in between a mousse and a cream.
I have been ditching the brush for these shadows, the application works miles better with my fingertips!
"Champers" is a soft caramel brown/pink. is one of the most beautiful nude shadow I own and it works perfectly as a base for smoky eyes.
"Countess" is a frosty pink, completely matte.
They both work perfectly as a wash allover the lid, I just add a bit of dark brown in the outer corner and lots of black eyeliner on top and bottom lash line and that's it, all done.
This is the end of the haul...but I have got the feeling is not gonna be long till I pay a little visit to the H&M store to explore more products.
My eyes are on the Powder Blushers and on the Cream Blushers.
Please let me know if you got anything from the line and what do you think about it or if you want me to test something in particular, I am open to options!
