& Other Stories has got to be one of our favourite recent launches! A sister brand to H&M, it started out as an idea for a beauty line, and developed into an achingly cool concept store for fashion, accessories and gorgeous jewellery, alongside high quality cosmetics and skin care, all at brilliantly affordable prices…

Their lipstick and nail polish lines are really stand out for us in their beauty offering, as the shade range in both of them is really impressive, so there’s something for everyone! We chose Calamanco Coral, a pretty peachy-pink coral shade. The finish is matte, although it’s described as also being moisturising, and when we wore it, it did feel pleasantly hydrating on the lips without having a shiny or greasy finish. The pigmentation is really good and there’s no chalkiness to it, which we sometimes find in lighter coloured lipsticks, and it’s a really pretty peachy shade which warmed up our skin and would look gorgeous with a tan. We’d even dab a bit of the lippie on the apples of our cheeks to give a matching blush effect, and team with bronze summery eye makeup for a great summer look.

All in all this has got us rather excited to try more of the beauty bits from & Other Stories, as it’s one of the best new affordable beauty ranges we’ve seen in ages! As usual for your chance to win it, plus a Lipcote, enter via the Competitions App on our Facebook page!
