BEAUTY | H&M Haul

I'm not going to lie; this is probably the first of many, many H&M haul posts since I started working there again - but more on my new job later. In the meantime, having worked there for around two weeks now, I finally gave in and used my staff discount for some goodies.

The make-up I'll likely be keeping spare at my boyfriend's house, but first it's a nice little haul for our upcoming holiday in two weeks time (speaking of which, I'm looking for guest post's if anyone is interested...)

I actually only planned to buy a bikini and tried a bunch on before eventually settling on this beautiful printed one. I was quite surprised; most I tried on fit really well which I always find surprising in shops. It's always tough enough trying on bikini's in the horrible lighting in changing rooms and most shops have a lot of varied sizing but H&M was really good for sizing this time. I have two patterned bikini's to take away with me but I'm going to still keep an eye out for a more simple plain one too.

I do really love the detail on this one and the bottoms fit really nice without showing too much. I remember how much I hated shopping for swimwear ready for my Mexico trip as everything in the shops was just really revealing and skimpy so I'm glad H&M has more variety.

I bought these cute glow/highlighter pens just because they're so damn cute. I like the idea of using a 'crayon' as a highlighter as I haven't much experience with highlighters before. These look super easy to use and really versatile and subtle too.

I also purchased this simple highlight palette which has more of a variety of colours; a couple of which that can be doubled up as a blusher. I like the look of this but they looked quite glittery in my swatches so I'll likely just use this palette for an evening look as opposed to a day-to-day one.

I've been after a new liquid eyeliner or so long now as the one I currently use is one I've had for years. I like my eyeliner to be like a felt tip and loved the look of this one, although when I took a swatch on my hand, the line seemed thicker than I originally thought. Still, with practice I think this will serve me well.

Finally, I also picked up a super cute mini brush and makeup sponge kit from the sale. The brush is sooooo soft and I chose to get a sponge too because a) it's cute and b) currently I apply my makeup with like..I don't even know what to call it but probably also a type of makeup sponge but it's really flat and just ugh. So I figured I'd jump on the beauty blogger band wagon and try one of these.

I'm pretty pleased with my purchases and I think they'll serve me well; then again I still need to actually try them out so once I do I'll ensure I get a review up. I think they'll do the job for the price that they cost = I'm not expecting amazing results but I am also only after make-up for an everyday look and it's not like I'll be putting together creative out there looks inspired by Instagram. So for what they are, they're exactly what I need.

What do you think? Have you tried any of H&M's beauty/make-up range? Let me know!
