I’ve been really keen to try out the new H&M beauty range since I first read about it back in the early Summer. H&M have had beauty products for ages now ( I reviewed a cheap and rather wonderful blusher here) but the new range looks more grown up, similar in styling to their sister company & Other Stories. The range has pretty much everything covered foundation, concealer, blushers, eyeshadow, lip products, nail polishes to beauty tools and even cleansers . You can check out the full range here .
I chose a lip stain and eyeliner. The gossamer lip stain is called Leading Lady. It’s a cool toned red with raspberry undertones. With more applications the colour gets very deep, almost a dark blood red. Perfectly vampish for Halloween. I found it applies easily with the doe foot applicator. Despite is being described as gossamer I found I could always feel it on my lips, it doesn’t feel sheer nor light but beside this misnomer (for me) I like this. The colour is strong, it applies evenly and it lasts. For me the eyeliner is the winner.
The eyeliner I have is called Bewitched and as you can see from the swatch it is beautiful. I found this easy to apply, it has a thin tip which makes for precision. Once it’s on it really doesn’t move or smudge, and it lasts all day. The colour pay-off is fantastic, one application gives full colour. It looks really pretty as a simple liner or as a thicker, bolder line it gives much more impact. I’m really impressed with this, if you don’t fancy this colour is comes in a range of shades and finishes.
Have you tried anything from H&M’s new beauty range?
