I have a few new products I tested out recently. H&M launched a full beauty range. I had read some blog posts about the range and wanted to try a few things out. So, in true fashion, I talked my husband into going to the Mall of America with me to go a few places including H&M.
I picked up the Perfectionist Finishing Powder in Ivory. I had read great reviews and things about the powder. Personally, I don’t love it. I think it is too much like a talc powder and sits on top of my skin. It does not blend into my skin as much as I would like.
Next, I picked up the High Impact Eye Colour in Act Your Beige. I have what seems like a hundred brown eye shadows. There were many colors in the range to choose from, but I was drawn to this one. It is a warm, beige that is just a touch darker than my eyelid. The consistency of the powder eye shadow is quite lovely. It also has a nice pigmentation to it, which I like.
The packaging of all of the items is very chic and looks like a department store brand. The eye shadow was $6.99 and the powder was $9.99. I am bummed I don’t like the powder more since it was a lot more expensive than the powder I use daily. I do like the eye shadow, but feel there is other drug store brand eye shadows that are just at great and cost less.
Will I purchase anything else from the range? Probably not. I don’t regularly shop at H&M so it would be unlikely I would go back again just to buy something from their beauty range. I hope this doesn’t deter you from trying out the range if you want to. I want to be real in my reviews and share with you the good and the bad.
