H&M Beauty | First Impressions & Review

H&M Beauty | First Impressions & Review

IMG_2634

If you know me, you know I’m a HUGE fan of H&M and whenever I buy clothes 90% are from this shop.
So when I found out they had brought out a Beauty range I grabbed my laptop and made an order.

If I’m honest I am quite surprised with the range of beauty items they have brought out. I was expecting just some nail polish and lipsticks but they literally have EVERYTHING you will need for a full face of make up, pamper items and shower/bath essentials. They also have make-up brushes, perfume and make-up bags!
What more could you ask for.

On the site they even have little videos to show you how to apply the makeup and what makeup looks you can create. I liked this as if your new to make-up or not as confident wearing/applying it, it helps you step by step on how to apply it and a few tips and tricks.

I didn’t buy a lot as my nearest store is in Liverpool which is a long train ride away and I didn’t have the time to go and test them out. So I bought some bits on the online site I knew I would like.

I have had this package for a week now and wanted to make sure I tested these products out before putting up this review so it was 100% honest.

Nail Polish | Russet Spice

I love the packaging of the Nail polishes and the colour range! There are so colours and shades to choose from, I ended up getting this Coppery Orange colour as we are getting closer to winter and I thought it would be a nice winter colour.

The colour is so pigmented and looks lovely in every light! It has a slight glittery shimmer to it which makes it look even nicer in the sun.

It stayed on my nails for around 6 days before chipping and that was without a top coat! I was impressed.

The only thing I don’t like about this Nail Polish is the brush. The brush is quite big and the brush bristles aren’t all together. But I can’t really complain as it’s cheaper than a lot of nail polishes.

The Nail Polishes range from £3.99 – £4.99

Eyebrow Kit | Caramel

I’ve been looking for a powder eyebrow kit for a while now but haven’t found one I really liked. I purchased a shade lighter by accident but it still blends in with my eyebrows and looks a lot more natural.

This kit is compact and easy to carry around with you, It also comes with two eyebrow colours (A light one and a darker one) and a wax to set your brows into place. The powder isn’t very pigmented but blends into your brows naturally.

The only downside to this Eyebrow kit is it does not come with a brush to apply the powder with. Luckily I have eyebrow brushes, But if you don’t just make sure when you buy this product you also buy an eyebrow brush.

This kit costs £5.99

Lipstick Pencil |  Bonne Vivante

I have been wearing a lot more lipsticks lately so I had a look at the ones H&M did and two caught my eye.

This first was this Lipstick Pencil in the shade Bonne Vivante which is this beautiful your lips but nicer colour! It looks great with pale skin and it also is a perfect shade for day and night!

This Lipstick is defiantly not a pencil it is more of a pigmented chubby stick, it’s very moisturising and pigmented.

I’ve been wearing this for the past few days and its very moisturising on the lips, it’s also very pigmented so you can either build it up or down.

If you are eating and drinking it can rub off your lips quite fast but if you’re not it stays on your lips for a long time without you having to re apply it constantly throughout the day.

The only thing I didn’t like about this product and I would change is that once you’ve used all the lipstick pencil up you can’t twist the bottom to get more. So you only have a certain amount of lip pencil to use before you need to go and repurchase it again.

I was so pleased with this Lipstick Pencil I’m defiantly going to repurchase it and try out their other shades!

This Lipstick Pencil is £4.99

No7 Advent Calendar – Day 3

Day 3 of the No7 advent calendar

No7 Eye Colour Brush

‘No7 Eye colour brush is ideal for eyeshadow and colour application.’

This No7 brush feels so soft and gentle on the skin, the reviews on the site look a bit negative but once i find some eyeshadow i will give this little bush a whirl and try it out for myself. It’s a good size and would be suitable if you travel as it will fit in a medium/small makeup bag. I would only use this to put just one colour on my eye as I don’t think it would be god for blending makeup or anything other than applying one colour to the eyelid. You can also use this for putting concealer on your face.

You can pick this up at boots for £7.25 here

Make Up Routine And Products

I rarely wear makeup but when i do this is what i use and these are my go to products. I use two eyeliner’s and I use the Real Techniques stippling brush to apply my powder and foundation.

Face;

Botanics – 3 in 1 Cleansing Solution
This cleanser is good at cleaning makeup off your skin and also using as a toner, you can buy this for boots and i have a full review on this product on another post.

Champneys – Moisturising Day Cream
This is hands down my favourite moisturizer and i also have the night cream, it’s light on your skin and doesn’t leave it feeling oily and it sinks straight into your skin so you don’t have to wait for it to dry.

L’Oreal – Nude Magique
I don’t wear foundation so I went out on a whim and purchased this a while ago and because its like a powder more than a foundation it isn’t oily looking. It blends into your skin so easily, because its like a powder but its a foundation it covers all your blemishes and leaves skin looking even.

Maybelline – Fit Me Powder
This is my favourite powder, it’s quite a light powder but you can build it up on your skin and gives your skin a nice healthy look.

Eyebrows:

Seventeen – Brow’s That!
I use this to fill in my eyebrows and its a good cheap product, it not too dark so you can build the colour up.

Eyes:

Collection 2000 – Fast Stroke Eyeliner
I use this eyeliner to fill in my winged out look, it stays in place all day and is an affordable eyeliner.

Natural Collection – Mascara 
I love this mascara and it’s not fancy or pricy, it just does the job of making your lashes look longer and nicer.

L’Oreal – Super Liner
I use this eyeliner first as its gone a long fine tip and i use it to line my eyes and create the winged out look. It’s a cheap product for those on a budget and its so easy to apply!
