I just tried H&M’s Metallic Mousse Eyeshadow in Purple Lava, mostly because it was $1 on the clearance rack, and I can never turn down clearance H&M makeup. They have a uniquely quirky sensibility to their beauty department, and I never know what I’m going to find. (Other finds this day include a sheet of temporary tattoos that also work on your nails. I love them!)
This eyeshadow is seriously purple. It is kind of a mousse consistency, and is applied using the foam wand in the cap. I tried some kind of cat-eye-ish thing, and I think I scared my husband with the resulting picture.
I liked that it actually is the color that it looks like it’s going to be in the tube. That said, this is a really hard color to pull off- I’m not sure how I would actually wear it outside of my bathroom. Not to mention the afore-mentioned husband-scaring. I think this is going in my pile of costume makeup- there will be a costume to go with it someday!
