Following on from her successful lingerie and fragrance Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has collaborated with Marks & Spencer on a make-up range for the Autograph collection.
I’ve had my eye on this range since it launched earlier this year. How can you resist the stunning pictures of Rosie, gorgeous dewy skin, soft natural contours and blush pink lips?
The range itself also comes in striking rose gold packaging, not dissimilar to another brand I know!
There are 51 pieces in the collection and they feature really soft wearable shades with a few pops of colour.
The range comprises a radiance cream, finishing powder, highlighter powder a contour and a highlighter cream stick, bronzer and cream blusher and a concealer crayon. For eyes there are 4 shades of eyeshadow quads, cream eyeshadow sticks, gel eyeliner pencils, liquid liner and brow pencil and finally a mascara. Lips products are lipstick and a lip gloss.
You’ll notice there a lot of cream products in the range which I really like as I find creams really flattering on the skin.
I couldn’t wait to actually feel it and try it for myself so here’s what I found
Here’s what I’ve tried so far
Eyeshadow quad £18
There are 4 colour ways in the quad, I tried Deco Diamonds which is a lovely blend of neutrals, a light cream shimmer, a soft grey-duck egg, a neutral taupe and a matte chocolate brown, a really nice combination of shades. The texture although powder, feels quite soft and creamy and so applies beautifully and is really easy to blend without losing the colour due to the great pigment in the shadows.
Cream eyeshadow sticks £12.50
Also available in 4 shades. I’m a big fan of cream shadows as they are easy to apply and very quick! The shades I tried are Movie star crush, a mauve bronze and Sparkle & Magic and metallic shimmery silver/ grey shade.
These felt really smooth to apply, blend well with fingers and can be built up to give a more intense colour. There is a little time to blend them but once they dry they really stay put. I found they lasted really well even without using a primer underneath, winner!
I tried two shades, Supermodel Kiss, a bright warm red and Camisole Blush a soft nude mauve.
I’m a nude lip colour wearer myself so loved Camisole Blush it was very similar to my natural lip colour but really noticed that the red really stayed put, it took a few wipes of my arm to remove the colour when I swatched it! The stand out on this lipstick for me is the packaging, magnetic closures which is something you expect from a premium brand and makes the lipstick feel more expensive and the weight of the case feels a weight too. the only downside to me is there was a strong smell to these which didn’t work for me!
Lip glossy £12.50
I tried Supermodel Smile. These are more of a lip tint than a gloss and come in a crayon form which is nice to use and non-messy. This shade was very natural, and feels soft and hydrating on, a definite fixture in my make-up bag.
