H&M Eyeshadow Palette…

Ever since my first heavy duty shopping spree in London in 2007, H&M has been a must-go place since their clothes are just so cheap and good. However, even though they’ve had their own makeup range for quite some time now, they’ve never really caught my eye – I think it was the “budget clothing = budget makeup” thought. But during my last trip there, this eyeshadow palette caught my eye.

Pretty, isn’t it? I like it that the palette comes in a range of colours rather than just one colour family. The palette also comes with two double-ended applicators.

The surface was what caught my eye – just check out the rose motif! I’m such a sucker for pretty looking cosmetics…sigh…but hey, this one has brains too…check out the swatches!


Top row – shades 1 to 5


Bottom row – shades 6 to 10

It’s not very obvious in the pictures, but the eyeshadow comes in a gentle shimmery shade. The pastels are definitely light but true to colour, and very easy to apply. And with 10 different shades, imagine how many colour combinations I could get out of this! (I'm partial to the bottom row at the moment though - which ones do you like?)

As far as wearability goes, it’s not bad either – apart from some minor creasing at the end of the day (which was fixed by wearing primer the next day), this holds up pretty well. And I can’t find a better thing to love than the price tag - £3.99!! (that’s like RM25 – I could never find anything remotely similar in quality AND price from our local stores here)


H&M eyeshadows come in various sets including duos and quads, and are available at most H&M outlets worldwide. Sadly, it’s not available in Malaysia or Singapore… :(
