H&M make up haul

Today I accidentally figured out that my eyeshadows stay lots of better and longer when I use concealer as a base. But as my concealer is almost finished, I went to buy a new one at H&M. But I left the shop with something else than only the concealer...

Hello Kitty - Kitty Beach Party eyeshadow palette. I wanted to buy this palette, because I really don't have many eyeshadows and I don't have yellow or orange at all.. And I thought I want to have all colours available when I'm doing make up experiments. I'm actually quite surprised how pigmented these colours are, and I didn't even use wet applicators when I did the swatches! These colours are shimmery, don't know if it shows in the pictures though. The blue and purple one are my favourites! This palette wasn't on sale, and it costed 4.95€.

There was many products on sale at H&M, and I just can't say no when I see 1€ prize tags.. All these products I'm going to show next, they were only 1€/each!

Hello Kitty - Kitty Garden eyeshadow palette. These eyeshadows are shimmery too, but not as pigmented as the colours on the palette above. Probably they'll be better when I use them wet.

Hello Kitty - strawberry love lipgloss. Cute, shimmery lipgloss, smells quite nice.

Hello Kitty mirror. I've lived without little mirror for a looong time, since I lost my powder which had a mirror in it. So I wanted to buy a mirror now, and this one is very cute.

Vanillasorbet lip balm. The only product I bough which wasn't Hello Kitty! Though, at first I almost bought Hello Kitty lip balm but then I decided to take this one instead. I've used only Vaseline for so long and I wanted something else for my lips! I read the ingredients list and it doesn't involve lanolin which is good, as i'm trying to avoid it. There's been something wrong with my lips occasionally and my doctor told me to avoid lanolin in lipbalms because it might cause allergy.

It feels so nice to buy something for myself sometimes. I've always been so strict when I'm saving money for something.. But I guess I could allow myself to spend few euros every now and then, I'm sure I'm still going to have enough money for shopping in October when I go to London.


  1. oh the first palette looks really pigmented, naaw the Hello kitty make up by HM are always so cute... I think its good that you are saving money for London, imagine all the stuff you can get there, but its always nice to buy stuff to oneself =)

  2. I love Hello Kitty - they are bringing out Hello Kitty Doc Martens! :D Have you been to London shopping before? If not go to Portobello Road and Camden for fun things and vintage stuff :)

  3. Pretty things, I can't believe they're so cheap! Yay for you coming to London!

    Thanks for entering my competition!

That's what I've been imagining a lot... What amazing stuff I can get there! Awesome clothes and make up products by brands that aren't available here.. :D But I've noticed that it's nice to take a little break from saving sometimes and have some fun bying something for myself!

    Robyn: Yeah I heard, I saw some pictures of the shoes from that collection and wow, they're so cute! :D I've been in London twice, done some shopping too though I haven't focused on it a lot.. The first trip was like all about Boy George, that's the whole reason why I even went there, and the second time there was Boy George gig again + most of the time I was seeing some friends I had only met on facebook.. But this time I think we're going to shop lots of more :) In Camden I've been few times and it's amazing.. There's gorgeous looking people :D Definitely going to go there again ,and also to Portobello Road where I actually haven't ever been before.. Thanks for the tips! :)
