The Review: Rosie for Autograph Make Up



Rose gold packaging, created by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and lots of positive reviews from YouTubers and bloggers alike meant I had to get my hands on some of the (relatively) new range at M&S! You may recall that a couple of the Rosie HW products featured in my "New In Beauty Wishlist" post here and as they've now materialised, I thought I'd let you know my thoughts...


Overall
In general, I'm pretty impressed with the two products I've picked up, which means I am super tempted to get a couple of her other things (she's just released the summer range, such as this gorgeous looking Insta Glow Bronzer)! Whilst they are a little more pricey than some drugstore products, they aren't nearly as bad as the higher end products I've been admiring lately, which is perhaps why I took the plunge - at £14 and £12.50, they're not going to the break the bank (thankfully!)...

Miracle Concealer in Shade 2 (£14)
Having seen Lisa Eldridge use this in her video with Rosie herself, I thought I'd give this a whirl - I'm still trialling a lot of new concealers and so there was no harm in putting another one to the test, right? I picked up shade 2 as I thought then I would be able to use this more in the summer when I'm hopefully a little more tanned, plus there's nothing worse than a too-light concealer and shade 1 appeared to only be suitable for highlighting under my eyes. Whilst I'm glad I picked up this colour, I definitely do need to be slightly darker to use this all over my face, but the peachy tones make it great at correcting any dark circles I have. That being said, it's not the best concealer in terms of blending - the formula appears really creamy and soft, however as soon as I blend it in, the pigmentation disappears... so much so that I find I have to layer this a lot more than my trusty Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Kit. The packaging, as with the rest of the range, is extremely pretty and I love the fact that the stick is very handy, but for the price I'd say you can find some cheaper alternatives that do a similar job!


Cream Eyeshadow Stick in Movie Star Crush (£12.50)
Whilst the concealer wasn't such a hit, I'm so glad that I picked this up. I adore my Bobbi Brown Longwear Cream Eyeshadow Stick in Goldstone as it's so quick and easy and I've been on the look out for the perfect purple-toned version so when I spotted this, I knew I had to get it. The formula is great, there's the perfect amount of sparkle (without having chunks of glitter all over your eye) and it also makes a great base for other shadows. I've been wearing this a lot for nights out as it lasts so well, plus the colour can be built up for a lot of drama or you can use a tiny bit for a wash of colour - and if you read my blog often, you'll know I'm all for a bit of versatility! Having followed Rosie on Snapchat (one of the best decisions of my life!!), it's safe to say I think the Cream Shadow Stick is one of her favourite products -  as well as maybe her Lip Glossy - and if using this gets me closer to looking like her, then I'm down for getting some more!
You can pick up the Concealer here and the Eyeshadow Stick here... I'd love to know if you pick up either of these or if you've got anything else from the range! Have a great week...
