Sheer and Sparkly H&M Glosses


 Im such a hag for sheer, sparkly and yummy-scented Lip Stuff, thats why Ive always been a sucker for lipglosses, i love how they give my lips a nice sheen plus a bit of sparkle to brighten my puckers. 

A fellow make-up addict, and a good friend (KikayMD *thanks bakla!*) recently had a trip to HongKong, she got me glosses from H&M as pasalubongs together with the Canmake blush I reviewed a few weeks back.



These glosses became an instant favorite, wanna know why? 

Read on.. (^_^)



I love how the lipgloss tube toppers are printed with zebra and tiger prints. I have this penchant for cosmetics that have safari-ish design, it matches my zebra froufrou lighted mirror (that im gonna review soon). 

Applicator wand is an angled doe-foot swab


The lipgloss tube itself is big and contains a lot of product, at least I know I wont have to stinge for the fear of finishing it all up easily.

Nothing to complain about the packaging. I just love this product! 


The colors are sheer, some are pigmented and/or shimmery than the others but I dont really mind since I love layering lip products.


and the swatches, 

I took 2 separate pictures since I cant capture how they all look like in just 1 photo.

On this first photo, cam's focus is on shade 1, closest of how it looks in actual.

1- Beige Orchid (sheer nude with gold sparkles)


another photo of the swatches, this time, focused on shades 2, 3 and 4 
(sorry I mistakenly switched the numbering of Pink Flamingo and Pink Lily)

2 - Pink Lily (pigmented hot pink with iridescent shimmer -- Reminds me of Chanel Pink Pulsion)
3 - Coral Hibiscus (sheer coral with iridescent shimmer) 
4 - Pink Flamingo (sheer pale pink with iridescent shimmer) 




They all have the same scent, vanilla-ish, cake-like, it reminds me of Creme Brulee. Yumminess! Whenever I use these glosses, I always get tempted to sniff my lips while pouting wahahaha! :D 







Goof-Proof : Just another swipe-and-go product. 
Use them alone or use as a lipstick topper. :) 




I have this habit of licking my lips or wiping it often to get rid of the grittiness from dust particles that got caught in it. So I would say you would need to reapply every 2-3 hours. Not bad. These glosses taste yummy after all. haha!




Loves it! No allergic reactions from it so far. 



Definitely back up worthy! :) Id have to check H&M out for these glosses on my next trip to HK. 



12months as it says on the tube, longer if with hygienic use. 




I have no idea how much these cost since I got them for free, haha! :D


H&M Stores
(sad to say we dont have H&M yet in the Philippines)

Overall, Im loving this product, Id definitely pick this over MAC glosses. <3 <3 <3 

Have you tried these glosses? Love them too? Share your thoughts. :) 

Thank God Its Friday! 
Whats your plan for the weekend? 

Live, Love and Stay Fab!!
