So, this shop called & Other Stories have been making rounds on the European beauty blogging community, and I of course have to check out anything with an ampersand in the name. Holy hell do I feel bad now.
& Other Stories is basically a new brand under Sweden’s H&M. I haven’t perused the site that much yet, but the beauty section has definitely caught my eye.
The reason why I feel bad is because they do not ship to the Philippines. Or the US, which is where I usually use third-party shipping services. So this is a genuine lemming-only sort of shopping. Which is depressing because I just want all the things. Here are my top picks, because I like to torture myself.
Blusher in Cire Red (left) and Stockinette Nude (right), £10 each
Matte Eye Colour in Cubica Mauve, £7 and Satin Eye Color in Organza Coral, £7
Creamy Pearl Eye Colour in Sarsanet Petrol, £7 and Eye Colour Palette in Sateen Aubergine, £12
Total Tint Stick in Pink, £10 and Face Contour Cream, £10
Lip Colour in Cashmere Coral, £12 and Lip Gloss Applicator in Wincey Russet, £7
L:a Bruket Seaweed Bath, £25 and Moroccan Tea Body Wash, £5
(I just want the seaweed for the novelty, admittedly.)
Phew! These are so gorgeous and these picks are just the tip of the iceberg. I’m genuinely saddened by the fact that I can’t throw my money at this beautiful brand, and isn’t it weird how the mind works that way?
Fantastic branding system! And that shakespeare quote! Lovely lovely!
Those top two blushes are so lovely. You’ve been tagged! 🙂 Hope you’ll join in! :)http://wearyourvitamins.com/2013/03/30/confesions-of-a-shopaholic/
Thanks Marisa, I’ve just gotten back from a trip but I will check that out ASAP! 🙂
Thanks for informing me! I like to stay on top of things and I can’t wait to check this site out. Damn it, if they don’t ship to America then I guess they won’t ship to where I live either 😦 xx Karen
I hope you can find a way to get your hands on them! 🙂
I’ve been looking at their site since they launched! So many beautiful stuff! I know an online shop who does pre-orders for Europe brands including & Other Stories! Her conversion rate is 1 euro = P72 I think. Let me know if you want her link!
It’s alright, I think I have to take care of my make up problem for now, but I’ll take you up on your offer once I feel a bit more comfortable buying more makeup 🙂 Thank you!!
Hey girl hey, if my UK trip this week works out I’ll mule you stuff. And if it doesn’t, +1 to coveting from afar.
It’s too late to mule stuff because I haven’t given you moneyz. Enjoy your trip nonetheless! 🙂
Ahhh! I’ve been seeing so much of this recently. I hope we can get out paws on them soon! I love the clean and easy packaging!
So pretty, right? I love the branding across the board! I’ve read that their products are A+ too.
that face contour cream!!!
