If you’re into makeup brushes like me, oh well, I like everything actually *lol*, then you’ll love this bit of news. H&M Malaysia recently brought in a wide varieties of makeup brushes and it is available at all H&M stores in Malaysia (according to Sunway Pyramid store) 🙂
I first saw these makeup brushes at H&M IOI City Mall but I was too tired after an event and I wasn’t in the mood to take photos. However I did post up a sneak peek on my Instagram so do stalk me on Instagram as that is where I post up EVERYTHING first. Two days later, I went to H&M store in Sunway Pyramid to sneakily take some photos so let me warn you first that all the photos in this post are absolutely crappy as the brushes are “strategically” placed facing the cashier counter. I need to take the photos secretly and I really hate being sneaky with photographs. So yes, really crappy photos ahead.
Now, I have no idea what are the names for these H&M makeup brushes as nothing came out from Google and oversea actually got a better Rose Gold range than ours. Meh! There are two different types and range therefore I’m just going to name these the Black range and the White range.
H&M Makeup Brushes – The Black Range
All of the brushes are packed in a tight ziplock packaging. I have to give credit to H&M on this for hygiene purposes as I notice some people like to take the brushes and run it over the face that are with makeup. Ewwww!! Initially I didn’t want to open up to feel the bristle but for the purpose of this post, I have to sneakily took one out and feel the bristle. I concluded that the Black range, which does look more classy and price wise are also a little bit higher does indeed has softer bristles. However, I feel that the cheap and light wooden handle are too light for the hand and it feels cheap.
I also didn’t plan to show each and every brushes available as it’s really a lot to “sneakily” take photo of, but I did it anyway. Here’s all the brushes available under the Black range.
H&M Makeup Brushes – The White Range
The White range on the other hand has a totally different set of brushes than the Black range. It’s good that H&M choose not to do the exact same brushes for both range otherwise we will have a major headache!
The brushes in this White range has stiffer and plasticky bristles. However I love the white plastic handle as it feels heavier on the hand compared to the Black Range. The White range also has more dual-ended brushes so you save more 😀 . The price range for these are also a few ringgit lower.
I know I said the White range has most dual-ended brushes but I have to hide while taking photo so I am not able to take photo of the whole brush unfortunately. So you have to bear with the one sided brush photos okay?
As you can see, the White range indeed are so much cheaper than the Black range especially that the price you paid are for a dual-ended brush. I do get questions like which range to go for if so. Well, it really depends on what type of brushes that you’re looking for as both range has different sets of brushes. As for me, I would like to bag all home but I can’t. I bought the Brow And Lash Brush from the White range as I’ve been searching high and low for a cheaper dupe for the Tarte one I have and I also bought one Large Shading Brush from the Black range just to try. I actually like the H&M Brow And Lash Brush more than my Tarte and the Large Shading Brush is a bit meh. It doesn’t pick up eyeshadow and I have to keep running the brush over the eyeshadow pan several time. I’m intrigued to get a few dual-ended brushes from the White range as they are so cheap. Maybe next time as I don’t need them at the moment.
