If new makeup doesn’t cheer me up, then there’s definitely something wrong...
I’ve had a bit of a crappy few weeks which has sent me on a shopping spree and doing so, I come across this beautiful new collection in Marks and Spencer by Rosie Huntington-Whitely. M&S have their own brand of makeup, Autograph, in which Rosie has collaborated with to produce her own range of Rose Gold finished makeup which includes items such as Highlighting Powder, Lip Gloss, Lipstick, Bronzer, Eyeshadow palettes and many more. I was in love with the packaging when I first saw it online and had to have a mooch to look at it more! Here I am, a few weeks later with a pretty good haul of the gorgeous products.
All of the items are finished in a beautiful Rose Gold with Black and Gold outer packaging that is super chic and sophisticated. It’s super simple yet so elegant that it will appeal to makeup lovers of all ages! I decided to pick up a few items that I knew I’d use daily and see what they were like compared to some of the higher ended products I’m using at the moment. Firstly, the Copper Gold Rush Eyeshadow quad is a beautiful mix of Bronze and Rose toned eyeshadows with one shimmer shadow (top right corner) and is a little like some of the shadows from the Naked 3 palette. The pigmentation on the shadows is brilliant and it also has a handy little mirror enclosed in the palette too meaning it’s perfect for travelling. I love it when palettes are just simple, no tacky makeup applicator included or any fancy detailing, just plain and simple. I love it. There are 4 palettes in total, each holding a different set of cool toned, bronzed eyeshadows (£18.00).
Along with the eyeshadow palette, I got the Liquid Eyeliner (£14.00) which again, comes in a gorgeous Rose Gold finish with a lid that clicks on so you don’t have to worry about it drying out. The nib is super thin too but not too thin that it’s flimsy. It’s sturdy enough to create the perfect wing-liner, something I can’t go a day without! The liner is super black too and it only takes one go to give quite good lining to both upper or lower lid. I applied mine and it lasted the majority of the day - it comes off easy and doesn’t smudge!
Next up are the 2 Lipsticks (£14.00) - the first a gorgeous Berry pink in ‘I love you so much (ILYSM)’ and the second in ‘Silk Rose’ which is more of a nude, brown shade (a lot like Taupe from MAC). Following the Rose Gold trend, the lipsticks are encased in a metallic, rose gold bullet with the rose crescent engraved on the side of the lipstick. Both lipsticks are a silky, semi-matte shade with ILYSM being more shimmer than matte but still a good pigmentation. I think it’s going to be a summer shade for me as I’m all about matte nude lips at the moment! If you’re more of a lighter shaded lip lover, you can opt for one of the Lip Glossy sticks instead (£12.50).
Finally, onto the bronzer. With a choice of 2 colours, the bronzer is the perfect addition to the rest of the clan - pigmentation is amazing (be careful!). I applied it as a bronze but ended up having to blend it out for a while as I didn’t think the colour payout was going to be as good as it was! Again, similar to the eyeshadow palette, there is a mirror in the packaging which makes it perfect for traveling!
What I love most about these products is that they’re so simple, but so chic and look more expensive than they are! They’re a little more than ‘High street’ price but definitely not too expensive to be classed as ‘High end’. The packaging and the finish to all of the products make them stand out and as for it being a Supermarket brand which Rosie has collaborated with, I think it reaches out to more people than any other makeup brand would.
If you buy these products on the internet, you get FREE DELIVERY on orders over £50.00 so make sure you head on over and take a look! There has also been some items added included Perfume and Candles as part of the range so I think I’ll be treating myself again this month and adding these to my collection!
