I’m in love with Rosie and after the rave reviews of her M&S make-up collection I bought a few pieces. I tried to vary the products and choose the ones with the best reviews and that definitely turned out in my favour. Below are my favourites so far!
Lipstick | Camisole Blush £14
This lipstick is 10/10. The smell is a little sweet without being too overpowering, it’s creamy on application yet looks semi-matte and the colour is a “my lips but better” pink-nude. It stays put well throughout the day and I don’t really need to use a lip liner before.
Cream Blusher | English Rose Flush £14
I had never tried a cream blusher before this one and now I don’t know how I’ll get round to trying any other brand as this formula is amazing for my skin. I use a Real Techniques Expert Face Brush to dab a little bit of product onto my cheeks and blend up towards my cheekbones. I would call it a balm more than a cream and it dries matte. This shade is a muted apricot; perfect for Summer and universally flattering.
Below are swatches of the blush and lipstick (without flash)
Shimmer Body Oil | Gold Shimmer £15
Just look at it *heart eyes emoji* …this product is what angels use. I’ve seen a lot of alternatives from Tom Ford, Nars and The Body Shop but, due to price limitations and the lack of sunshine in the UK, I chose to buy Rosie’s. For £15 you get a lot of liquid in the bottle and its non-greasy formula is a winner in the warmer months. The actual look of it on your skin is divine and looks amazing with a tan. I apply this down my shins, arms, collar bones and if I have little to no make up on I dab a bit on my cheekbones. The shimmer particles aren’t too chunky and light picks them up perfectly.
It also has oils of camelina and sweet almond, which make you smell and feel incredible, and it sits beautifully on your dresser with the rose gold cap and elongated glass bottle packaging. I would recommend looking in M&S stores as it’s constantly out-of-stock on-line and I’m not surprised!
Insta Glow Matte Bronzer | Summer Solstice £20
I snapped this up on the day of release a few days ago as it is just up my street. I’m going to do a full review on this product as it has so many more uses than a bronzer (I thought it was a highlighter at first!) so watch this space 🙂 The Insta Glow also comes in a blush but I’m more likely to use the bronzer. It’s well-milled and glides on to my face seamlessly. It’s on the slightly warmer side but my skin undertones are olive so this works well for me.
Rosie’s make-up collection is the real deal as far as celebrity collections go and I can’t wait for her to extend it even further. If you’ve bought any of her products let me know!
