h&m eyeshadow

If you follow me on social media you know I went to Oslo this past weekend. I didn’t do much shopping, but as we were walking around the shops having a browse, I realised their H&M had a huge beauty hall! It not only stocked their own brand but the likes of Maybelline and Revlon aswell. I know we have the H&M beauty range here in Dublin (in Liffey Valley, I believe), but since I live closer to town I tend not to be up that way too often. So, when I saw the array of H&M makeup I had to try some. I am gong to split my H&M makeup haul into two posts. This one will be the eye products and then the next one will be face products.

Oslo is known to be expensive, so I could have well been ripped off with prices for these products, but sure I was on holliers so I won’t complain 🙂 I’ll link to the prices on the English site here to give you some sort of a gauge.

I only ended up getting 5 things for the eyes. They have a full range though from liners to lashes. I stuck with things I knew I would actually use rather than just buying for the sake of it (I do that alot too 🙂 )

I got one of their eyeshadow palettes.

I am in love with the sleek packaging of the H&M makeup may I add. It feels really nice and luxurious as well as looking the part too.

You get nine shadows in the palettes which I think is a pretty good deal. I went with a somewhat neutral choice called Smoky Nudes. I think there’s four palettes to choose from though.

Here they are swatched from left to right.

The cream to shadow eye shadows were another product to catch my eye. I had a quick swatch of a couple of them and then ended up grabbing 3 colours because I couldn’t choose just one colour.

I have yet to wear these on my eyelids yet, but upon swatching them on my arm, I think if you have oily lids like me, not a hope these will last on their own. I will be personally use them as shadow bases rather then stand alone shadows.

Overall, I am really impressed with the H&M beauty range. The packaging, the quality and the amount of products they stock is really impressive. The price point is not bad at all either which makes things very much sweeter. I am now off to fill my lids to the brim 🙂
