Shiitake: H&M High Impact Eye Colour

H&M High Impact Eye Colour Shiitake

Eyeshadow is a marvelous invention that come in countless shades, yet somehow I always end up firmly in my safe zone of neutral and brown shades. Although I have been experimenting a little recently, it should come as no surprise that the first H&M eyeshadow I picked up is a lovely bronze.

The High Impact Eye Colour is available in a lot of lovely colors, but I opted for Shiitake: a lovely bronzed brown shade with a lovely shimmer.

The packaging is rather nice: I love being able to see the color through the top so you don’t wast time looking for the eyeshadow you want. Although this is obviously plastic and feels light when picked up, it looks rather fancy on your dressing table.

The eyeshadow has a lovely consistency and doesn’t produce much fall out. It isn’t the most longlasting on its own though. I created a look using this shade and a Makeup Revolution palette without primer and at the end of the day the MUR shadow was still firmly in place but this was all but gone. Lesson: use a primer!

I have to admit I am a little on the fence about this one. At $6.99 / £4.99 / € 5,99 for a single eyeshadow, it isn’t actually the most economical buy. Palettes might be more expensive to purchase, but generally give you much more value. I do love the fact that there are some amazing on trend shades in this collection, so I would recommend just buying particular shades to update your look (like this amazing moss green color I will review in two weeks). As much as I love the color of Shiitake, it isn’t  very different from several others shade I own.

Oogschaduw is een geweldig uitvinding verkrijgbaar in ontelbare kleurtjes, maar ik kies op de een of andere manier altijd dezelfde veilige neutrale en bruine kleuren uit. Hoewel ik de laatste tijd wat meer aan het experimenteren ben, zou het je niet moeten verrassen dat de eerste H&M oogschaduw die ik kocht deze mooie bronzen kleur is.

De High Impact Eye Colour is verkrijgbaar in veel mooie kleurtjes, maar ik koos dus voor Shiitake: een bronzen bruintint met een mooie glans.

De verpakking is mooi en ik vind het heel handig dat je de kleur aan de bovenkant kunt zien zodat je meteen de juiste oogschaduw pakt en niet hoeft te zoeken. Het is natuurlijk plastic en voelt wel licht als je het oppakt, maar ziet er best luxe uit op je kaptafel.

De oogschaduw heeft een prettige samenstelling en is makkelijk aan te brengen. Het blijft alleen niet geweldig zitten. Ik droeg dit samen met een aantal kleurtjes uit een Makeup Revolution palette zonder primer en aan het einde van de dag zat de MUR schaduw nog prima maar was deze zo goed als weg. Les: gebruik een primer!

Ik moet toegeven dat ik een beetje gemengde gevoelens heb. Een enkele oogschaduw voor €5.99 is niet echt heel goedkoop. Kwalitatief goede palettes zijn natuurlijk duurder om aan te schaffen, maar je krijg wel meer waar voor je feld. Ik vind het wel erg leuk dat H&M een aantal hele mooie trendkleuren in de collectie heeft, dus ik zou aanraden om enkel trendy kleurtjes te kiezen die je nog niet hebt (zoals deze geweldige mos groene kleur die ik over twee weken review). Hoewel ik Shiitake wel een mooie kleur vind, lijkt hij best veel op andere kleurtjes die ik al had.

    It looks like a gorgeous shade, pity about the lasting power! I haven’t tried anything from this range before!

    I love bronze shades so much – I probably have more of them than anything else! Good to know it doesn’t that all day, though. I’m finally visiting H&M this weekend so I’ll be scoping out all the beauty stuff you’ve been telling me about! 😀 Do you have a #1 favorite item?

      The blush! Definitely swatch some of the blushes 🙂
      I tried the eyeshadow with primer the other day and it looked magnificent, so if you don’t mind using a primer (or maybelline color tattoo) underneath it will be fine. Hope you have a lovely weekend xx

        So get this. I went to H&M today and they didn’t have ANY beauty stuff!! I wonder if it’s only available in Europe right now? I was so disappointed!

          Oh no! How utterly rude! It is availble on the US website and the collection was extremely slow to arrive here as well. Maybe just select or larger stores?
          So sorry you missed out on it 😦


          • Amelia Vesper November 9, 2015 / 8:43 pm

            Bummer!! It was a smaller H&M, perhaps I need to visit the big one…

            It is really irritating. Happens to me with the clothes all the time: you see something great online or in the folder and can never find it in store.

      I totally agree it is a bit of a weird name for an eyeshadow. But the color is lovely.

    This eye shadow colour is literally can be used for any time of the year as it sticks onto the safe neutral zone and also, the price looks affordable too. Great post Anne!

      I do exactly the same, so predictable. I have to say this autumn has inspired me to try out greens and plum shades and those are lovely (combined with brown of course 😉

        Yes, I wear more plum based shadows when fall comes around too, but most of the time it is mainly neutrals, paired with a little something…
