Rosie For Autograph Makeup Review

-




Rosie Huntington Whiteley has long been one of my favourite beauty and fashion inspirations, so I was excited to hear that she had launched her own makeup line for Autograph at Marks and Spencer's  at the end of January. I already loved her other ranges at M&S including her active wear and lingerie line, so I couldn't wait to pick up some of her beauty products if it meant there was a chance of achieving Rosie's classic and sophisticated signature makeup look! I was already sold on the range before seeing it, but the gorgeous rose gold packaging definitely gave me an extra nudge to buy more! I have had the products for a while now and have five items from the range to review for you. 



The first item I picked up was one of the products I was most excited about, as Rosie always seems to have the perfect nude lip. The shade I chose is 'Lady Rose' which is a lovely pink toned nude that's almost a 'my lips but better' colour, Rosie has also said that this is her favourite shade from the collection. As with all the products, the lipstick is priced at £14 which I see as being mid way between the pricier end of drugstore makeup and high end premium makeup. The lipsticks are very pigmented and creamy, so they feel nourishing and hydrating on the lips whilst also having a fairly impressive lasting power for a non matte lipstick.


I love cream blush, I feel like it gives a more natural and subtle look than using a powder so I was happy to see that Rosie had included cream blushes in the range for such a reasonable price as I honestly believe these are on par with the Nars cream blushes. I chose the shade 'Camisole Blush' which is the most brown toned of the four shades, as I prefer to go for a more natural blush look. The blush has a great pigment and applies smoothly so it's definitely worth the £14 price tag. For such a reasonable price you receive a lot of product and the blush also has a great mirror which really comes in handy for on the go application!


The next product from the range is the 'Get The Glow' highlighter, I only picked this one up a few days ago so I'm yet to try it out. However from swatching it, it has a great creamy consistency and is a lovely almost rose gold shade. This one retails for £15 and is reminiscent of the Nars multiple sticks, and I can't wait to use it to highlight!


The only eye product I have from the collection is one of the cream eyeshadow sticks in the shade 'Sparkle and Magic'. I'm a big fan of the Laura Mercier caviar sticks, but none of the ones I have are anything like this shade. Sparkle and Magic is a truly unique metallic shade with a khaki undertone that looks lovely and shimmery on the eyes. It applies smoothly and the wind up application makes it really easy for anyone to use. These are priced at £12.50, which really is a great price for such a high quality product that can only usually be found with premium makeup brands.


Lastly, as I purchased some of the products soon after they were released I received this rose gold makeup bag for free although it is still available to buy for £16. The cosmetic bag is a lovely rose gold colour which the camera doesn't do justice, complete with matching rose gold hardware. I honestly believe that this range is well worth trying out, particularly as for such a reasonable price neither the quality of the products or the packaging has been compromised. Be sure to let me know which is your favourite and if you have any items from the range!
