Simply Lippy Challenge Day 347 | H&M Lip Collection Lip Gloss in Shade, Maroon

If you’ve caught some of my posts over the last week, you’ll have seen me writing about this set of mini lip glosses that I picked up in H&M. There are five in the packet and while two of them wouldn’t usually be my choice of shade, the shades that I do like, I absolutely love.

Today’s shade, Maroon, is probably my favourite shade of all, mainly because it is a gorgeous winter berry shade, and you all know I love a berry lip.

The finish on this shade isn’t as full or opaque as some of the others; it is more sheer than anything else, yet the pigment is bold and colour pay off is very good. A light layer gives great coverage, and the colour is fab too!

The formula like with all the others, is thick and rich, and very easy to apply. It blends well, has a nice smooth texture and smells just as delicious as all the others.

The lasting power isn’t amazing, it’s fine but does need to be reapplied after eating or drinking. And as it was a very windy day, I did notice a little stickiness which I hadn’t notice before and found a little annoying.

Having said that, I had a girly day out today with some of my girls and it was the perfect lippy choice for a festive day out. I loved wearing it and it’s definitely going to stay in my makeup bag to use once my challenge is over.

Simply Lippy Challenge Day 346 | H&M Lip Collection Lip Gloss in Shade, Pink

Today’s lippy is another pick from my H&M mini lipstick set and one that I would never normally wear. But, for the purposes of trying as many shades as possible for my challenge, today I donned this very pink, pink lip.

I’m not a fan of this kind of pink, it’s just not me at all and I’m sure most of you already know that I prefer bolder colours overall. However, as with most of the other glosses in this set, I have to admit that this does have great pigment.

The finish is a medium to full coverage which I was surprised by given the gloss finish and the paleness of the shade. However, the colour pay off is good and it layers very well too.

As with the other lip glosses, the formula is quite thick with a nice texture, and it makes your lips feel smooth when you apply it. It isn’t drying, but it’s not hydrating either so you won’t get any moisturising element from it. But, given that it’s a gloss, that’s to be expected.

For me I wouldn’t wear the shade again because I’m really not a fan so I suppose the set isn’t great in that regard. However, given how budget friendly it is, one bad shade out of five really isn’t bad. Plus, it would make a great stocking filler for any lippy lover!
