I've been giving the New Rosie for Autograph collection from M&S a go and thought i'd share my first impressions with you guys.
First up the packaging as you can probably see for yourself is beautiful. It looks really expensive and the rose gold colour is so pretty. It feels really nice and sturdy, great quality for the money.
I haven't tried the whole range yet but I thought i'd share my first impressions for the bits and pieces I have been using. The range has something for everyone eyeshadows, bronzers, lip products and much more.
I've been giving some of the eyeshadows a try, this eyeshadow palette is gorgeous. It's got a lovely selection of shades perfect for any everyday eye look. You can create a really nice natural smokey eye look using this palette too! With a range of pearl and matte finishes you can create a number of different looks. This palette is great for anyone and is really easy to use and blend. I really want to pick up another palette, I like the shades in Copper Gold Rush which is more pinky/ gold shades.
The palette is a great price at only £18
I've been testing out the eyeshadow sticks too, these are so creamy. I'm not a huge fan of eyeshadow sticks as I prefer powder shadows but these are very easy to use and such a handy thing to have.
I find the shadow sticks are great when your in a hurry and just want a pop of colour. The shades I have are really easy versatile everyday colours. Just a sweep over the lid and your good to go. I think these are perfect for everyday and they last really well. The colour payoff is really good and again i'm really impressed with the quality for just £12.50 They come in a few different shades, I love Almond Eyes, it's a beautiful pink/ gold shade.
I've tried the Bronzer a couple of times, it's a nice light shade which is great as I have fair skin and it blends really well. I like the colour, it gives me a nice natural glow. It's easy to apply and the packaging is just gorgeous. The palette has a mirror which is always an added bonus. I think this product is really easy to build up so you can build up the colour from day - night.
I've also tried the Insta Lash mascara, I found it lengthens the lashes really well. I went over the top of my lashes with another mascara to add more volume as this one didn't really give the volume I like from my mascara. The mascara does lengthen the lashes and defines the lashes. I really like to apply this first and add the length to my lashes and then follow with another mascara for more volume. This is a really nice finish for everyday.
I still need to give the lip products a try and the cream blusher so keep an eye out for those in a full review. I am seriously loving the Rosie for Autograph range and the packaging is just gorgeous. The quality of the make up is spot on and the price is good. The brand is Cruelty Free too which i'm sure lots of people will be pleased to hear as they offer a huge range of different products.
