ROSIE FOR AUTOGRAPH MAKEUP COLLECTION
Model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has been a long-term fashion and fragrance collaborator with M&S, but her latest range with the retailer is her Rosie for Autograph* makeup collection. This collection is an extensive one and I've been trying a good selection of products from it for a couple of weeks now.
All of the collection has beautiful, sleek black and rose gold metallic packaging. One of the stand-out products is the brilliant Amazing Radiance Cream (£18). This lightweight cream can be worn on it's own for radiant no-makeup days or under foundation as a base. It gives skin a lovely dewy glow and just makes it look healthier and brighter. It feels really nice too- very breathable and hydrating.
I've also been trying some lip products from the collection. The Rosie for Autograph Lipstick in Nude Blush (£14) has a nourishing and moisturising formula that's really comfortable to wear. In terms off finish, I'd say it is a highly pigmented semi-matte. This shade is very '90s and would appeal to fans of Kylie Jenner's lip looks. Rosie has also released a lip gloss crayon in various shades. I've been using the Lip Glossy in Supermodel Smile (£12.50) and I love it. It glides on and leaves a shiny (but not sticky) wash of colour. This shade is very natural and is just a bit pinker than my normal lip tone.
The eyeshadow quads in the collection look fabulous are are very compact and come with a handy mirror. The Eyeshadow Palette in Ballet Slipper (£18) is a pretty range of taupes and greys. All of the shades are very shimmery in this palette- there's three pearl finishes and one matte, but the matte has visible glitter particles in it. All of the shades blend really nicely and stay put for most of the day.
Onto the blushers and contour products in the range, I've been trying two of the four cream blushers- Camisole Blush and Nature's Blush (£14). These have such a pretty cream to powder finish that blends easily to leave a natural pop of colour. Camisole Blush is very muddy and would be a difficult colour to pull off, but Nature's Blush is the perfect spring pink. These are really long-lasting too and will still be brightening up your cheeks at the end of a busy day.
Finally, I've been testing out the Rosie for Autograph Starstruck Highlight Stick (£15) and Starstruck Contour Stick (£15). These are such an easy way to highlight and contour- the sticks are highly pigmented and easy to swipe across the skin. They have a very silky formula that blends easily to leave natural-looking areas of light and shadow. The contour stick is very warm-toned however, so won't suit everyone's colourings.
Do you like the look of any of these products?
