I recently took a trip to H&M to peruse a sale that had my name on it. Instead, I purchased quite a few makeup items from them. I actually purchased these items after learning more about H&M’s unethical practices and now I feel quite guilty. So please do bear that in mind.
Firstly I purchased some H&M eyelash curlers. I heard about these a few years ago and wanted to pick them up. Some people scoff at whether eyelash curlers are actually useful, but I always feel a bit more glamorous using them. Plus these ones are super pretty. The curl they give is pretty decent and they’re only £2.99 – Bargain.
What really caught my eye however were the ‘Cream Fusion Eye Colours’. I picked up one in ‘Champers’, a champagne toned colour. These aren’t super long lasting, but I think for the colour I don’t really care. This shade’s super subtle and it’s one I’ll probably use every day.
Above you can also see the ‘Eye Colour to Go’. This is a lovely taupe colour that has quite a bit of shimmer. I’m excited to use it as a pairing with ‘Champers’. These pencils are not overly pigmented, but the colour is definitely buildable. In honesty, I much prefer that they aren’t overly pigmented. I find that the colour of these lasts a little longer than the cream eyeshadows, but the shimmer is more intense.
Okay, I don’t know about you, but lipsticks always instantly catch my eye. More so than anything else. I used to own a lot of lipsticks. Like a lot. I’m trying to get back into my lipstick, as I used to wear it virtually everyday. To be honest, I’m trying to be less lazy with my makeup, since I do own so much of it.
For me, I love a vampy lip. Anything Dita Von Teese esque is a good lipstick by me. These are creamy, but they do need a lipliner. They’re quite standard as lipsticks go, but they are super hydrating and comfortable to wear. Plus I kind of love the fifties esque gold packaging.
On a more personal note, I’d like to say, fingers crossed, that I have my blogging mojo officially back. I really struggle every now and then to get into blogging, simply because I do this as a job as well. Fancy catching up on my last beauty blog post?
