H&M beauty haul: Sneak Peak + Swatches

H&M beauty haul
Eeek! I finally got my hands on the new beauty range from H&M! How exciting! If I could I would literally buy every single thing from the collection but... let's be honest. Unless I win a lottery it is not gonna happen lol. So I decided to get some... (yeah, no surprise there!) lipsticks, a couple of eyshadows and blushers.
Clockwise L to R: H&M lipstick in Purple Reign, Orchidding Me, Candy Apple. H&M Pure Radiance Powder Blusher in Imperial Red, H&M Pure Velvet Cream Blusher in Peachy Rose, H&M Eye Colour in Robusta & Eye Colour in Arabica

So far, I have been using Eye Colours and I can report that they are amazing! All products have creamy and buttery like texures and are very pigmented as you can see on the photo! I will post full reviews soon - but I hope you enjoyed this little preview :) Love, A.xx

Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Home Candle - luxury home accessories

Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Home Candle
When I first smelled Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Home Candle I didn't really like it. I thought it was a little too spicy and the smell was too masculine. But the more candles I tried the more I liked it - the smell somehow stood out from the rest :-) So after smelling almost all of the candles I decided to go with the best selling one, which is Pomegranate Noir and... oh boy, do I like it? I loove it!
Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Home Candle
Once lit, the smell isn't overpowering or too delicate - it smells just right :) it actually reminds me of a beautiful spa (why - I have no idea). But a spa smell feels like I can relax and have some "me" time :)
The candle is £42 but is it worth it? As an occasional treat I would say yes. Will I be treating myself to another one any time soon? Probably not. I have been using great alternatives such as Dorma candles (Dunelm Mill, £7.99-£13.99) and Next (£10) and I would definitely recommend checking them out before you spurlge your hard earned pennies on any expensive candle.
