Simply Lippy Challenge Day 341 | H&M Lip Collection Lip Gloss in Shade, Mauve

The other day I tried out one of these H&M lip glosses for the first time and was so impressed with it. I loved both the formula and pigment, both of which were such good quality for the budget price point.

As I bought it as part of a five mini lip gloss set, today I tried out my next shade in the set, this lovely soft mauve nude. To me it has more of a brown than mauve undertone, but it’s a lovely warm shade nonetheless.

The pigment on shade Chestnut which I wore the other day, was a lot more opaque than today’s, and I did have a feeling that might happen given that the colour isn’t as rich. It’s definitely got more of a sheer finish, but you do still get a soft hint of colour when you layer it up.

The formula is the same rich vinyl-like formula as before, and one thing I absolutely love about it, is the gorgeous caramel vanilla scent which quite honestly, smells delicious! It literally makes me want to eat it – but maybe that’s more the pregnancy hormones than anything else!

The texture is very smooth and is slightly on the thicker side which gives a good coverage to the lips and keeps them soft throughout the day.

The lasting power isn’t bad as glosses go, you will need to reapply throughout the day, but nothing more than I would expect from a gloss really.

As colour goes, the pigment was definitely better in the first shade I tried, but overall I quite liked this one again today and am very impressed by how well it wears too.

Have you tried any of the H&M beauty range?
