I remember when I went to Spain in 2005 H&M had a full makeup line ( I had to get some stuff), as well as some skin care. THe next year their magazine had an article about their mens makeup and skin care line.

I guess this new line is their first real attempt at entering the North American market and with the new organic stuff

I will be looking forward to trying it out.

I saw the BB Color Strips at the counters last week. The colors were really lovely but the shadows seemed much smaller than I remember seeing them in the past.
