H and M Summer Makeup Collection And NOTD
I went into H&M the other day to check out their makeup and they had their new summer makeup collection out. I love the packaging and I am a sucker for inexpensive makeup (and pretty packaging) so, I grabbed two items, the eye quad in Birds of Paradise and the nail polish in Ocean Sand :)
Birds of Paradise eye quad (approx 30 dirhams)
I thought these shadows were just GORGEOUS and I loved the slight shimmer. Like the other shadows I tested, these are also pretty good for pigment. They came off a little bit powdery, but I'm sure they'll stay put with a good base. I can imagine wearing a wash of the blue or purple with lots of mascara, with a pretty maxidress at night.
H&M nail polish in Ocean Sand (21 Dirhams) Three coats
I just fell in love with this polish in the store. In the bottle, it is a deep gold, almost bronze with a gorgeous shimmer and tiny flecks of glitter. On my nails....not so much. The color is still very pretty, but it's just not as impressive as it is in the bottle. I wore this yesterday, but I think I'm going to take it off today because I just don't like it that much. Hopefully it will grow on me. It is a very pretty color, I just think it wasn't what I was expecting.
Have you guys tried any of H&M's summer makeup? What do you think of gold polishes?
