I’ve bought from H&M and I’m really, really pleasantly surprised with the formula and pigmentation of the shadows. Five colors make up the Smoky Purple palette and they’re all of a generous size, in a plastic rectangular palette that does away with foam applicators in favor of more product.

H&M Smoky Purple Eye Shadow

The colors range from pink to black and feature different amounts of shimmer. The formula of the shadows is really soft and feels almost creamy, though they are powders.The colors in my opinion are very pretty and I think they will look amazing on everyone. It goes from Left to Right

H&M Smoky Purple Eye Shadow

Color 1 –  is a nice pinky nude color which I use for the inner corners of my eyes to make them appear bigger. It makes a lovely highlight for the browbone, or an all-over base for an evening look.

Color 2 – a dark brown which i used in the outer V of my eyes.

Color 3  – is a purple color with a touch of metallic feel to it and you can use it all over the eyelid. It gives a shimmering look to the eyes.

Color 4 – I use in the outer V of my eyes.

Color 5 – the darker grey looks gorgeous in the crease, on top of the lighter shade.

Color 6 – black is almost matte

Some of the shades are more pigmented than others but they’re all buildable. The five colors together are all you need to create a subtle day time look or a smoky night time eye and the size of the palette means it’s great to take away with your purse. Its a nice little palette and I’ve really enjoyed using it over the last couple of weeks. With this palette I have faced a unique issue. The staying power of the eye shadows is quite commendable.

The looks all gorgeous if you can really mix well, the nude pink and the purple are the highlight of the palette, giving you that smoky and stunning look where your friends ask you, ”Does your eyes always Glistens”?
