As more and more fashion brands enter the beauty realm, shopping has become much more practical. If you're looking for say, a new button-down and another red lipstick to add to your growing collection, you need only stop by Zara, Forever21, or H&M to do so.
With fast fashion retailers launching trendy new makeup at what feels like lightning speed, it can be hard to parse through the thousands of products they have to offer. I decided to slowly put them to the test, starting with Urban Outfitters and now H&M.

H&M may be known for affordable fashion, but the store stocks a treasure trove of palettes, lipsticks, and highlighters, too — many of which cost under $10. This week, I put a full face of the brand's makeup to the test. See what's worth the money in the video above.
