Rosie for Autograph Makeup Collection


The moment I saw Lisa Eldridge post a preview of this collection on Instagram, I knew I had to have it! Seeing her video doing a tutorial of Rosie's look using some of the products from the range just made me want it even more. Everything from the stunning, luxurious packaging to the reasonable price tag to the beautiful selection of shades ticked all the boxes for me. 

Supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has been working with M&S's own brand Autograph for a good few years now but this is the first time she's done makeup. As you would expect from Rosie, there are lots of cream products, products that are going to make your skin look radiant and the shades are very classic but fresh. I feel like the range is built around enhancing your natural beauty, so you're not going to find anything too crazy or unwearable. The price tag is what I'd describe as 'mid-range'; it's not cheap but it's not super-premium. The quality and packaging really is impressive so it honestly feels like you're getting a luxury product for half the cost.


A collection by Rosie was always going to include a glowing primer, as she's pretty much the queen of radiant, dewy skin. This can be used as a moisturiser in itself as it's hydrating and has a subtle sheen to it, however I tend to moisturise first and then use this like a primer. It gives a really natural glow to the skin and I've also been enjoying using mixed in with other products. My skin has been quite dry and dull recently and I've been mixing this in with my Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser, which has helped me get that healthy, fresh look. If you want to make your favourite matte foundation a little more natural and dewy then this is also amazing for that.


I've really been getting into cream contouring lately and this is one of my favourite products to do it with. I wasn't sure if the shade would be right for me as this only comes in one colour, however I find it's perfect for a natural, everyday look. The shade itself is warm in tone but not orange. I just dab along my cheekbones and blend it out with a synthetic brush; all in all it probably takes about 2 minutes! It applies so beautifully that it makes contouring an effortless step that I don't mind doing for a daytime look. The formula is creamy but not greasy and pigmented but not too strong. It wears well on my skin without going patchy too. Overall, this is one of my favourite products from the range.


There's also a cream stick highlighter to go with the contour. It's a pearly colour with a subtle, glitter-free pearlescent sheen. It's very slightly more silvery in tone than something like Becca's Opal. Overall I'd say the tone is slightly on the cooler end of neutral, which is something different for me. It's not greasy at all and looks so beautifully natural on the skin. I don't feel like it settles into my pores or enhances any uneven texture on my skin. It just gives this amazing, natural glow.



I think this is one of my favourite cream blusher formulas. It isn't thin or greasy at all; it has beautiful pigmentation and almost a mousse-like texture. It applies evenly and doesn't disappear or go patchy after a few hours like some cream products do on my combination skin. I find these so quick and easy to apply with my fingers in just a few dabs. I love the healthy glow they seem to give to my cheeks without anything overly shiny (they don't contain shimmer either). Romantic Flush is a vibrant pink shade that you only need a small amount of to get a gorgeous flush of colour. I've mentioned many times my love for English Rose Flush, which is a  beautiful nude-rose that I like to wear on my minimal makeup days. I've actually never come across a cheek product that's quite the same colour as English Rose Flush before.

Eyeshadow Palette in Deco Diamonds* | £18

On first glance, this definitely isn't the palette I'd have immediately been drawn to from the collection however once I started playing around with it I really did like the taupe shades. The quality of the eyeshadows is beautiful; it's so creamy and pigmented. Not a single shade is chalky or wishy-washy, which really impressed me. I don't tend to go for the silver-blue-toned shade in the top right-hand corner (though it can actually look really nice just patted on the centre of the lid with my finger) but I've been loving the cream-champagne shimmer in the inner corner, the dark matte brown in the crease and the taupe shimmer across the lid. I was pleasantly surprised at the colour payoff for the matte shade especially! They also last really well on my eyes; though they aren't quite as sharply defined by the end of the day, they haven't worn away either. All in all it's well worth picking up one of these palettes.




I'm a bit of a cream eyeshadow obsessive so I know what I'm looking for and I can be a tough critic. However this really impressed me. I had heard good things about the original Autograph eyeshadow sticks so when this range was first launched, this was the thing I knew I had to try. It's a gorgeous beige colour with a pearly shimmer to it. The formula is creamy, pigmented and doesn't crease or wear away. It's virtually identical both in colour and formula to Laura Mercier's Rose Gold (comparison here), which is nearly twice the price (plus, this has nicer packaging!), so I definitely recommend picking this one up.

Lipstick in I Love You So Much (ILYSM)* | £14

Like the Romantic Flush blush (which it pairs perfectly with), this really isn't as 'scary' as it seems in the packaging. It has a creamy, semi-sheer formula and has that vanilla scent that seems to make a lipstick feel that much more luxurious. There's actually a very slight shimmer in the formula but it doesn't translate to the lips at all, it just makes them look a little more glossy and full. I find this really comfortable to wear and once applied I'd describe it as a vibrant rose shade. It's almost like a pared-down version of MAC's super-vibrant neon pink Viva Glam Miley but a little brighter than Nars's Dolce Vita lip pencil. It's definitely one of the more daring shades in the collection but like everything else, it's still made really wearable. I'd say it lasts up to 4 hours on my lips before I need a touch-up.




Have you tried anything from Rosie's collection? What did you think? If not then what's on your wish list?

  1. I've never tried M&S make up, actually, and a collection by one of their faces would not normally attract me to it per se but after Lisa Eldridge you're the second person I hear talk about it positively and I am a junkie for cream products because they're so easy to apply for someone lazy like me, so I am tempted to give some of it a try, especially the eyeshadow stick and the contour stick.

  8. I would never have thought to head to good old M&S for make-up. I really love the look of that hightlighter. I've got liquid ones, I've got powder ones but no cream ones like that. It looks a tad like Benefit's High Beam but a little less pink and less watery.

    Will have to check it out next time I'm buying Percy Pigs :)

  28. I got a 20% off offer yesterday on my Sparks card so despite being a few days away from pay day I spent money I really shouldn't have and ordered the English Rose Flush blush and the brush set from this collection. I can't wait to feel the brushes. They look so luxurious!

    If anyone wants 20% off beauty at M&S they also sent me a code to share with family and friends so I may as well share it here as long as Jasmine doesn't mind! Use MAY16EM ..I think it expires within the next couple of days by the way :)

Almond eyes is so gorgeous, especially for £12.50 I love how it isn't extremely cheap but not ridiculously expensive! So exciting when you find a good dupe like this for something worth more, thanks for mentioning!

I love the look of the cream eyeshadow sticks, so can't wait to pick a couple of those up. The lipsticks look amazing too & I'm intrigued by the highlighter stick. I've seen a few other brands come out with these, but I'm yet to find one I'm not allergic to. I'm hoping this will be suitable for me. Xx

  52. Hi Jasmine,

    I rarely leave a comment under a make-up post because I'm more into skincare and lifestyle, only because though I love make-up as the greatest way for a woman to make herself feel confortable in her skin, I'm very bad at it (that's a confession). I pretty much never wear an eyeshadow, only mascara and eye liner (and a good base, of course, because I love foundation). Nevertheless after you posted this I saw Alex Steinherr snapchatting herself doing her make-up and she used this gorgeous eyeshadow stick from this collection. It's not the shade you've showed but a beautiful brown/burgundy. I loved it and thought I would let you know because it made me think of your post.
    Have a lovely weekend :)
