Recently I went into H&M for a browse as always, and came across their new beauty collection. I was so surprised to see how many products there were in their new range, and how sophisticated the packaging looked. I've never really been into the thought of buying H&M make-up before, because I just assumed that the quality wouldn't be great and I just didn't see how it fitted into the overall brand. 

However, I was very pleasantly surprised when I saw the new collection in store. The packaging is very simple yet appears very high quality and there is a very wide range of products. They have got everything on offer from base products, to eye products and also lip, cheek and nail products. They've got so many eyeshadow shades that I didn't even know where to start looking and so many nail polishes that look like they will be a really good dupe for Essie. 

I decided to pick up an eyeshadow stick in an olive green shade and also a nude lipgloss. I didn't want to go overboard with buying just in case they didn't turn out to be as good as they looked. I'd been looking for an olive toned eye shadow for quite a while now, and I thought that the stick would be easy to apply and also the pigment looked good on the first swatch in store. I also decided to go with a nude lipgloss as I'd been buying a lot of lipsticks lately, and so thought it would be good to have an everyday lip option that is wearable on its own or on top of other products too. 

My thoughts on the eyeshadow stick on first use is great. I love the colour pay-off and its very easily blend-able on the eyelids. It doesn't feel heavy to wear on the eyes and you can also build the colour up to make it darker if you want to. I love the shade for Autumn/Winter time and I think it will be a great alternative to a grey smokey eye look. It's also got a slight shimmer to it which I love to wear around this time of year - especially leading up to the Christmas party season! I can't wait to try out some of the other colours soon.

As for the lipgloss, I don't feel like its blown me away. I like the feel of it on my lips because its not heavy or sticky and therefore easy to wear for a day to day look. But I was hoping that there would be more colour pigment in the gloss rather than just being a sheer shine. I definitely think that this lipgloss is one to wear over a nude lipstick and not on its own. Having said that, maybe a darker shade in the gloss would have more pigment in it so that its wearable on its own. The applicator is nice and soft too and makes the application quick and easy. However for me I was quite disappointed that the shade I thought it would be wasn't quite how it came out. But the formula is definitely very wearable and comfortable and for the price you can't really complain!
