Rosie for Autograph Makeup Collection Review

I have been a huge Rosie for Autograph fan for a long time, and have several sets of her underwear, and when I heard about her makeup collection, I knew it was going to be beautiful - and I wasn't disappointed.

Everything is so sleek and rose gold coloured, with simple classy packaging and the products inside are fab. By far, my favourite item I purchased was the Lady Rose lipstick, and I will definitely be getting some more colours. The pigmentation is brilliant, the texture is so creamy, and it contains Argan Oil - which is a stroke of genius, because it isn't drying in the slightest. I would describe the finish as semi-matte, the colour lasts for so long, it hardly moved when I had a drink and a snack. The lipstick is priced at £14, so we are in the same price as MAC, and to be honest I would say yes - just as good! 

Finally, can I just say they have done something very simple but brilliant: magnetic closure for the lipstick lid. Celebrate ladies, you won't have to fish about in the bottom of your handbag for the lid anymore!

If you have been following my blog for a while, you will know that I love collecting perfumes, as I like a different one for every occasion! Well I can't pass up a beautiful (and reasonable priced) bottle, so I picked up the first Rosie for Autograph perfume. This has been out for quite a long time, but somehow I have always overlooked it. However for £12 for 30ml Eau de Parfum, it is definitely worth getting if you like flowery scents. As you would expect this is a very rose scented perfume, which isn't really my winter thing, but I'm definitely more floral in spring/ summer - so expect to smell it on me a lot then... in the meantime it just looks beautiful in my collection!

I decided to pick up a couple of the makeup sticks, I decided that the starstruck contour was a must have, and also the miracle concealer. Although I want to try the highlighter stick too...

I think the contour stick is fantastic, I got it in the lighter shade, which I would say is perfect for my skin tone, it is so easy to use, and works amazingly with a beauty blender! Such a quick way to contour!

I'm not sure how I feel about the miracle concealer, but I'm not certain I would call it my miracle product... I got it in colour 1, which seems ok, but to be honest there wasn't a lot of choice, which I think is quite disappointing. It is also very warm toned, which makes it good for under eyes, as it really helps with any dark circles, but warning - do not try and use it on any blemishes. I found it made them look a lot more obvious!! So yep, slightly mixed review - if you want something just for under eyes, the consistency and colour works. Just don't use it for anything else.

Saving one of the best till last.... I LOVE the Amazing Radiance cream! This is a brilliant product. Seriously no downsides. The consistency glides onto my skin (and my skin is quite fussy) and sits really well underneath my foundation. The glow it gives is amazing, it isn't sparkly or anything else, it just makes your skin look luminous! I can also see this working really well in the summer when I have a tan, because I would just use it on its own for a light makeup look!

I did try and swatch the products, but the sun came out and I got a bit washed out!! However you can still see how pigmented the lipstick is, this was literally one swipe! You can also see the warm tone from the concealer, and the contour stick was a couple of swipes to show the colour - but I love that it's build able!

Amazing Radiance Cream swatch - I didn't really want to blend this in because it disappears, and you wouldn't see it... which is kind of the point!

So what do you think? Have you picked up any of the Rosie for Autograph Makeup? Is there any other bits I need to try? I'm probably going to get the highlighter stick, and another lipstick (or two) so if there is anything you think I can't live without let me know in the comments and I'll pick it up!

Lots of love
