My review of the Rosie for Autograph Marks and Spencers makeup line. (Specifically her cream blush).
Rosie Huntington-Whitely (or bitchface as I call her) has a makeup range in Marks and Spencer. I always wonder how much input celebrities have when they launch a range. How does it work? Is Rosie up late in the lab tinkering with emollients and silicones, sighing and shaking her head when the formulation isn’t turning out right? Or does she just smile for photos and cash her cheque? Probably somewhere between the two. The woman should know a fair bit about makeup, she’s got professionals applying to her on the daily.
Availability-The range is only available in Marks and Spencer’s in store and online. Unfortunately they don’t ship beauty products overseas. Non Brits will have to beg their UK friends for help on this one. Or it could be the perfect excuse for a holiday! The packaging is lovely. So pretty and quality that it almost doesn’t matter what the makeup is like. Reminiscent of Charlotte Tilbury, it’s all rose-gold and black.
The range includes lipsticks, eyeshadow palettes, eyeshadow sticks, blush sticks, bronzer, loose powder, liquid eyeliner, gel eyeliner pencils, contour sticks, “Amazing” concealer, Instalash mascara, brow pencil, perfume, “Amazing” radiance cream and cream blush (which is what I went for).
The Price- It’s all over the £10 mark, so not cheapo, but not wildly expensive- the most you’ll pay is £18 on anything.
The range would suit anyone. There are no crazy colours. The eyeshadow looks particularly user friendly, neutral palettes and blendable cream colour sticks.
I bought the Cream Blush, the colour really appealed to me. It’s called El Natures, it’s a pink coral shade. The texture is delightful, cream to powder, it’s very light. The pigment is bold.
I was worried that Rosie for Autograph might be a bit namby pamby. This blusher is not namby pamby. I used a blusher brush to apply and blend, I think if I used my fingers I might have ended up with very pink cheeks it’s so colour rich. It gives a lovely sunkissed glow and lasts well into the day.
I would advise anyone who lives in the UK to head down to M&S to check out Rosie for Autograph Makeup, our international counterparts must be dead jealous. Beautiful packaging, quality products and a not too hefty price tag. I’m very pleased with my purchase and I’ll be heading back for more.
Rosie for Autograph gets a solid 9/10 (well done bitchface)
