Paris’s oldest fashion house has just graced H&M with its presence, but it’s not the first time the high street store has collaborated with a designer brand.
Fashion followers will already know that, in addition to Lanvin, H&M already boasts a star-studded history of collections; Stella McCartney, Madonna, Roberto Cavalli, Kylie Minogue and Jimmy Choo have been a few of H&M’s guest designers.
Regardless of H&M’s Hit and Miss products (let’s face it, while some items are deceptively cheap, some are just, well, cheap) the chain has firmly established itself as a chic fast-fashion outlet, churning out catwalk style at a rapid and bargainous rate.
But what about H&M cosmetics?
As far as I understand, H&M has been selling make-up for a while now. Yet, despite being a fan of the Swedish store, I must admit I’ve never purchased a single product from the ‘By H&M’ make up range. The other day, however, a shimmery eyeshadow palette caught my eye…
I was on the verge of purchasing it until I saw the price tag: £5.99. Now, while that’s not exactly an extravagant amount, in a shop where you can buy a skirt for £2.99, the price did seem a bit out of place. And unfortunately, unlike regular make up counters, you can’t try before you buy.
So I’ll tighten my purse strings for now, but I would like to know how many people purchase H&M make up, and if so, whether indeed they deem it a hit or a miss.
If I do end up splashing 599 pence on the aforementioned palette, I’ll be sure to let you know.
