H &M High Impact Eye color in Kobai Azalea

Hello folks!!

So the single eyeshadow in the shade Kobai Azalea is the second product I have tried so far from the H &M beauty section and I must say I am pretty impressed with the beauty line already. Currently the beauty world is quite obsessed with dark cranberry, red, magenta type eyeshadow shades and if you are on a budget and looking to try out a shade in this family range…let me introduce you to Kobai Azalea…..

The shade Kobai Azalea is a very scary intense pinky red shade in the pan. I picked this up initially thinking if I don’t like it as an eyeshadow I’ll try it out as a blush! Guess what..it works great as both an eyeshadow and a blush 😀

One of the most discussed palettes in the beauty world right now is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. Now, I do not own this palette but to me this shade looks a lot like Venetian red /Love letter in the pan and swatched.

Kobai Azalea is matte and though the texture of the shadow is not very silky, it is not very chalky either. The shadow looks lovely in the crease and blends effortlessly. I feel that I was able to use this as a blush as well all because of how easily bendable this shadow is! I did not notice any fading after wearing this shadow for around 9 hours.

The shadow is very build able although I have not tried packing this color to its maximum intensity  on my lids..primarily since I am not a colorful eye shadow girl most of the time 🙂 For me this is a great crease shade and I can see myself reaching for this more in the coming fall months.

Overall, this is another great beauty product find for me from H&M. The eyeshadow has great staying power, is blendable and pigmented! The packaging is quite okay as well.

I plan to pick up more items H&M beauty soon! Tell me… what are your favorite items from the line?

Until next time, ciao!!

H &M Beauty Immaculate Compact Foundation in Golden Beige

Hello folks!

I’ve been wanting to try some products from the H &M beauty line for a while now, and decided to take the plunge when out shopping with my mom 🙂 Now before we get to the details on this powder foundation there is something you should know..The immaculate compact foundation is described as a cream to powder velvet finish..not true at all! It is a normal powder compact..so don’t be fooled by their cream to powder claims!

I love the packaging of this powder foundation! It is simple, sleek and lightweight. The packaging does not look cheap although it is made from plastic. I picked up the shade Golden Beige which seems to be a good match for anyone in the NC25-NC30 range. I believe there are 6 shades available in total which is not too bad.

The foundation comes with a nice mirror and a compartment which houses a sponge. Surprisingly, the sponge is quite good! especially compared to the sponges we get with most drugstore powders. The powder is really silky and soft and the quality of the powder is great for the price tag.  However, the coverage is minimum to barely there. Hence this is more suited to those who are going for the minimal look and have great skin in general. This does leave a nice velvety finish and is not drying on my skin (I have dry skin).

As you can see from the ingredient list, this does contain Talc, so if you have issues with Talc, this powder is best avoided.

Overall, I do enjoy this powder since I find this to be perfect for no make up makeup days and I do not not get cake face when using this powder.

Have you tried anything from H&M Beauty? Whats your favorite?

Until next time… ciao!!!
