A few weeks ago, I was out shopping with some fellow beauty bloggers and we happened to go into H&M to check out the beauty department. It was the last day of the Buy One, Get One Half Off deal, so I just had to buy a couple of things!
After hearing rave reviews of the All-Day Liquid Foundation from Samantha (check out her YouTube channel!), I knew that would be one item I grabbed. I also decided on a single eyeshadow in the shade Mesmerize Me.
Now to start off, I have to say that I am in love with the foundation. Great medium coverage that can be built up a bit more. It has a satin finish so it’s not entirely matte but also doesn’t make you look too dewy. Fortunately, it doesn’t cling to any dry spots and it doesn’t get super shiny throughout the day. I find it is best applied with a damp Beauty Blender and 1.5 pumps is perfect for the entire face.
I’ve been having problems with foundations separating on my skin throughout the day but at the same time accentuating my dry spots or acne. This foundation doesn’t do either of those things. It does wear off throughout the day a tiny bit, mainly on acne, but in no way is it patchy as it wears off. If I feel like adding a bit more glow, I can add a liquid highlighter to the foundation without compromising it’s pigmentation or wear time.
This eyeshadow in Mesmerize Me is absolutely stunning. After first swatch I was in love. A blackened green shadow with multicoloured glitter that has great pigmentation. In the pan it looks more green but once swatched on the skin or applied to the eye, more of the black in the shadow comes out. I didn’t experience too much fallout with this shadow which is surprising considering it’s a dark shadow with glitter.
It looks great over top of a black eyeshadow base and using a base most likely minimizes fallout. It easily adds to a smokey shadow look while giving a touch of glam to the look.
I am so happy with my purchases from H&M and have rarely been disappointed by one of their products. Considering the foundation retails for $14.99 and the eyeshadow for $6.99, you really can’t go wrong!
til next time…
