Cheap lipgloss FTW!

Whilst perusing the rails at H&M I landed upon their cosmetic corner. Now H&M is not a store I would associate with makeup shopping but interestingly enough you can find some little gems.

I left with a shimmering lipbalm and a lipgloss.

The lipgloss is called Bella Bellina which is a nude gloss with subtle hints of pink and gold glitters. For £1.99 I wasn't too bothered if this turned out to be a disappointment however i'm pleasantly surprised by its quality.

There are two things that stood out for me with this product:
1) It is a high shine gloss which is non sticky and
2) It is long lasting. I applied this at 5pm yesterday and there was still remains of it on my lips around 10pm last night (although no food and barely any drink was consumed throughout this period).

This is a swatch of it on top of MAC's Patisserie l/s.

Next time you find yourself in H&M I would encourage you to check out their makeup line. Not only will you bag a bargain but you could find some impressive products.


  1. Sometimes the little 1.99ers from H&M, Primark etc are great little finds - a bit of make up for hardly any money makes me very happy!

  2. i have a really pale pink gloss from H&M and love it! they do some really nice nail polish too! x

  3. @ Girl With The Golden Touch, I hope to find more makeup bargains :)

  4. @Hele I saw a nude polish but it was clear when applied. Will have to check out their other shades x

  5. I have nominated you for the Adorable Blog Award. Check out my post for details!!
