NEW H&M BEAUTY HAUL


Since receiving the H&M magazine through the door, I have been dying to pick up some of the new beauty items that H&M has launched.

FACE MASKS | CUCUMBER AND ALOE, CHARCOAL AND VOLCANIC SOIL | £1.99 EACH
First up, is some face masks, I picked up Cucumber & Aloe and Charcoal & Volcanic Soil. Cucumber & Aloe is a peel off mask with passion flower and lotus blossom for tired skin. Charcoal & Volcanic Soil is a pore cleansing face mask with sea salt for blemish prone skin.  They come in a cute round foiled plastic packaging. There are a range of different face masks targeted for certain skin types, all with different coloured packing and smells.  I haven't heard about anyone talking about these yet so I am eager to try this out. These retail for £1.99 each. 

ALL DAY LIQUID FOUNDATION | WARM BEIGE | £7.99
Next is foundation, as you all know the lighting in H&M is not great, so I found it difficult to colour match myself, so I finally gave up and picked up a shade that I would normally choose for foundations which is warm beige. I have noticed that H&M caters for different skin tones, as I came across cool beige and soft sand etc. The H&M that I went to was quite small so I don't think a whole colour range was available to select from. 

The foundation comes in a plastic bottle with a pump applicator.The pumps applicator brings out a lot of product, the foundation itself is very runny, blends smoothly, and has a satin-matte finish. One of the other things I noticed was the smell, it smells of baby wipes which I do not know if it will linger on throughout the day. I haven't tested this out of my face yet so an in-depth review would be available soon. This retails for £7.99 and has SPF of 15.

HIGH IMPACT EYE COLOUR | ACT YOUR BEIGE | £4.99
I picked up the single eyeshadow, which is called HIGH IMPACT EYE COLOUR in the shade ACT YOUR BEIGE.  ACT YOUR BEIGE is what I would describe as a shimmer light bronze shade. The eyeshadow powder is extremely smooth are indeed extremely pigmented. There is a wide range of colours to select from, I wanted to pick up this other copper foil shade but it was sold out. I am going to try out this, and if it swatched like it does on my hands in one swipe on my eyes, I will be going back for more. So keep your eyes peeled. The single eyeshadows retail for £4.99 each. 

PURE RADIANCE POWDER BLUSHER | £6.99
PURE RADIANCE POWDER BLUSHER | DEEP BROWN | £6.99
I next picked up a blusher, I choose the powder blusher over the creamy blushers as my skin works better with powder formulas. And selected the colour DEEP BROWN, which is as a matte mauve colour, which I may use as a contour shade, depending how it applies onto my skin. The powder is a sheer finish, but I hope it's build-able. 

The packaging of the blushers are a little different coming in a hexagon shaped container. Has a black top lid and gold on the bottom side.The powder blushers retails for £6.99 each.

COLOUR ESSENCE EYE CREAM | COUNTESS | £4.99
Next I picked up a cream eyeshadow called the COLOUR ESSENCE EYE CREAM in shade COUNTESS. This product is like a eye primer base similar to the Maybelline colour tattoo but has a moose texture which make it more smooth and easier to blend. COUNTESS  is a beautiful light beige pink with a light shimmer, which would be a lovely base for any eyeshadow. These retail for £4.99 and comes in about 8 shades.

CREAM LIP COLOUR | 002 KAMBUCHA | £7.99 
CREAM LIP COLOUR | 002 KAMBUCHA | £7.99

 Now back to the lipstick, which is one of the hardest things to choose from the H&M beauty collection, there are just soo many colours, and they weren't catergorised well in shades. The lipstick I picked up is a watermelon pinky - red shade, the  formula is extremely pigmented, creamy, smooth  and has a satin finish.

The lipstick has a white lid and a gold outer case, clicks together extremely well and looks very sleek. These retail for £7.99 and has a extremely wide choice of colours. The shade on the packaging does not match the product at all, so make sure you are grabbing the right colour code. 

Have you picked up any of the new H&M beauty collection?
In-depth reviews available here. Until next time!

  1. The charcoal and volcanic soil face mask sounds like it would be amazing for my skin - I'll definitely have to give that a try. As a massive lipstick addict I'm also keen to purchase a couple lipsticks from the range, the packaging is also super instagram worthy haha!
