I have this ever growing girl crush on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, not only is she absolutely beautiful but she’s hard working too. Her latest venture with Marks & Spencer is her Rosie for Autograph make up range. Naturally, wanting to look like Rosie and loving make up – it was a no-brainer that I just had to try some of the products.
Now, unlike other make up brands that others have launched, this is not a small collection of a few pieces – this is a huge range that has clearly taken a great amount of work and time to launch. I think that’s pretty commendable in such a huge market. The key focus of Rosie for Autograph is natural make up, for the lady on the go.
I found it hard to whittle down my ever growing list – thanks in part to Rosie’s Snapchat previews and Lisa Eldridge’s tutorial a few weeks back. Fear not – as overwhelming as the collection is, I managed to whittle down to six products – all of which I am going to give you the lowdown on right now!
Let’s start with the product I wasn’t so keen on – always best to start with the least favourite right? Sadly, I was a little disappointed with the Miracle Concealer in shade 1 (£14) which comes in a super-easy and handy twist up stick which I actually really liked and the shade was lovely. However, I felt the consistency was a little stiff and hard to blend which really was a shame as I actually like everything else about the concealer. Maybe it’s because I’m used to much smoother, more liquid consistency concealers.
A product that I’m completely undecided about is the Liquid Eyeliner in Intense Black (£14) which I found really easy to apply – it didn’t smudge or pull on my lid and it was much easier than a lot of liquid eyeliners that I’ve tried now I’m a bit of a pen liner connoisseur. The only thing that lets it down is the staying power for me – I’ve used others that are far more durable throughout the day. This one fades, albeit evenly quite quickly which I find really bugs me as I wanted to really love the liner. I am continuing to use it but I prefer my Kat Von D / Stila versions.
That being said, I actually can’t fault the rest of the products I got. I think my favourite of the bunch is the Starstruck Killer Contour Stick (£14) which I am struggling to find online (must be good!). I absolutely love this stick for a quick and easy contour as it’s not only a universally flattering shade but it’s super creamy and a dream to blend. I love how natural and sculpting this is without being over the top. Another contour style product is the Bronzer in Magic Contour (£18) which I probably didn’t need but I saw it in Lisa Eldridge’s tutorial so naturally it ended up in my stash. This is a lovely, finely milled powder that gives a natural chiseled effect to the cheeks whilst warming the complexion at the same time. It reminds me of the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow but much more affordable.
Another favourite is the Lipstick in Camisole Blush (£14) that is the perfect muted pink/nude shade. This looks amazing on the lips and the finish is a creamy, satin that is extremely comfortable on the lips. I definitely want to try some other shades and the Lip Glossy sticks look really great too.
My final product is the Amazing Radiance Cream (£18) which really reminds me of the Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow but with a different formula but the same results. It’s funny that I’m reminded of CT products as this whole range really reminds me of CT! This white lotion gives a boost to the skins complexion without being shimmery or glittery at all. It’s lightweight, sinks into the skin quickly and gives a beautiful radiance whilst remaining nicely moisturising. I can see this being a bestseller right away.
So there you have my run down of the products I’ve tried so far. I’m eyeing up the eyeshadow sticks/palettes as well as the cream highlighter which wasn’t available at the time. Oh and all the rest of the lip products.
Have you tried anything yet?
Love, Kate xo
