A Quick Look At H&M Beauty Eyeshadows

H&M Beauty High Impact Eye Colour in Baci di Dama & H&M Beauty Colour Essence Eye Cream in Sirocco - Review & Swatches

Although I mentioned the two H&M eyeshadows in my stash recently, I thought it was worth me writing up a quick little post – a lot of people had asked what my thoughts were and well, they’re worth a mention.

H&M High Impact Eye Colour in Baci di Dama – 

I’d heard about this shade a fair bit before heading over to Europe so as soon as I found the H&M beauty range, I made a beeline for this shade. I wasn’t disappointed – it’s the perfect champagne gold, it’d suit any skintone and any occasion. I’ve been wearing it all over the lid with a bit of a matte brown in the crease – it makes me look completely put together in just a couple of minutes. The texture of the shadow is soft and it applies really well to the skin, the pigmentation is great for a subtle wash of colour but can take a bit of building up if you want intensity. My only problem lies with the packaging – sure, it’s pretty but it’s also unnecessarily bulky.

H&M Colour Essence Eye Cream Eyeshadow in Sirocco – 

After getting my hands on Baci di Dama, I made sure to swatch all of the cream eyeshadows too – I do love a good cream shadow. Sirocco was the one from the line that stood out to me. It was a tiny bit warmer than I normally go with my brown cream shadows but the golden sheen running through it was just too tempting. The formula of the cream shadows is even better than the powder ones – super smooth and you’ve got just the right amount of time to blend it out to your desired level of smokiness before it sets into place. It’s not the longest wearing formula I’ve ever come across and I find that if you’re a little too fussy or rough with blending it out the pigmentation can go a little patchy but once you’ve gotten used to it, it’s well worth the trouble.

My first taste of the H&M Beauty line has definitely been a success. I can’t wait for the H&M Beauty line to properly arrive in Australian stores – there’s so much more that I’d like to try out. The blushes in particular are just calling my name…

  • Great review! Do you know when they’ll be in Australia? How did you get your hands on them?

    • I’ve been hearing various rumours about when the range will launch in Australia but hopefully it’s in the next few months! I picked these up when I was in Europe 🙂

  • So pretty! Are these available in Aus? xx

    I got a little too excited that H&M beauty had come to Melbourne…nevertheless this just makes me even more excited for when it comes.


  • H&M makeup is so pretty. Their concealers and eyeliners are really beautiful in formulation and pigmentation. That cream eyeshadow looks gorgeous. I’m really into cream formulations these days so may have to check those out. 🙂


  • Yeeeew! Baci de Dama is so bomb, it’s legit the perfect lid shade! Dayum, Sirocco is gorg! I didn’t even swatch the cream shadows (I was short on time!) and I didn’t need to be tempted by another cream shadow hahaa. I know when the full line comes to Aus though I’ll be browsing PLENTY.

    • hahah I bought so many cream eyeshadows when I was in Europe – I don’t know what got into me! hahah but yeah I’ll definitely be planning a trip when they launch it in Aus!

  • I wish they would finally release the beauty line in Australia! It’s killing me waiting for it. I especially keep seeing so many awesome eye shadow and nail polish shades that I just need in my life. Great review 🙂
