When I first saw preview pictures of the new H&M makeup collection, I fell in love. They’ve recently revamped their beauty department and released over 700 new products including cosmetics, hair and body products. Being the makeup addict I am, it was the beautifully packaged makeup that stood out to me the most. The simple sleek black, white and gold packaging with the slight Tom Ford vibe, it’s basically the perfect Instagram friendly packaging!
I’ve only ever tried two products from the old H&M line which were also palettes, but I just really didn’t get on with them- mega chalky and zero pigmentation. Due to a bad past experience I thought I’d play it safe and only ordered the one product so I can see how I get on with the new line, although the temptation to buy a blush (or two) was strong.
Warm toned eyeshadows are my favourite, so this palette really caught my eye. I’m all about the bronzes, golds and browns so this palette was perfect for me. I like that it contains a mix of mattes, shimmers and glitters so there’s a wide variety of looks that can be created.
All the eyeshadows in the palette are very soft, smooth and easy to blend. I have found they do have slight fallout, but it’s not enough to put me off the palette and at only £9.99 I wasn’t expecting high end quality. The pigmentation of the shimmers and glitters has impressed me the most compared to the mattes, they apply beautifully. I like that they have included mattes, but they’re just not as pigmented as I’d like. I still use them, and will get use of them I just wish they had more intense pigmentation.
Overall I’ve found this palette rather impressing, and I’ve found myself reaching for it often. Although the mattes let me down, the shimmery coppers, golds and bronzes are just so beautiful. I’m defo going to be picking up some more bits to try, I’ve got my eyes on the blushes, bronzers, lipsticks and cream shadows… basically the whole collection!
Have you tried anything from the new H&M beauty line?
