Blogmas #14 | Rosie For Autograph Make Up

I'm a huge fangirl of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, not only is she a gorgeous model I just love her whole aesthetic and she's built up a nice business empire for herself too which is always something to admire! So when she released her Rosie for Autograph make up collection I knew I had to snap some of it up. I usually avoid celeb collaborations but it's quite clear from her insta and snapchat that Rosie genuinely loves make up and is actually passionate about her products rather than just putting her name to the collection. My first impressions were that the rose gold packaging was beautiful, despite being more than a little reminiscent of Charlotte Tilbury's range (which I still haven't tried yet #bloggerfail.) But these are not just a pretty face, they're actually really lovely products apart from one that I'm not too fussed with.

Rosie for Autograph Eau de Parfum | This was the first product I got, if I remember rightly it was a gift from my mum for Valentine's Day when I was in hospital 💗 Out of all three of her perfumes this is the original and the best in my opinion. It has a rose scent (obviously) and is very girly, a bit more so than I'd usually go for but I love it. It smells gorgeous and it's quite strong so lasts a long time on the skin unlike a lot of more expensive scents. I think this is an absolute bargain and I'll definitely be repurchasing once it runs out!

Rosie for Autograph Lipstick in Lady Rose | I think I got this because it's the one Lisa Eldridge used in her Rosie tutorial and I remember thinking the colour was stunning! It's a nude that's a little bit darker than my natural colour so just adds a bit of something to a simple make up look. It's so comfortable to wear and it's hydrating but long lasting - a rare thing in a lippy! Most of her lipsticks are nudes but there's a bright red that I've got my eye on too...

Rosie for Autograph Amazing Radiance Cream | I bought this because Rosie is all about fresh, glowy skin but to be honest I think it's a bit of a dud. I apply it under make up and it does provide a bit of a dewy base but doesn't particularly blow me away - I feel like I have moisturisers and serums that do a better job so I won't be repurchasing.

Rosie for Autograph Highlighter Powder in Rose Bud | This for me is the real star of the show! I'm a bit obsessed with highlighters and this is so, SO pretty. It's a really fine powder but a little definitely goes a long way as it's very glittery (which might be too much for some!) But used sparsely it adds a beautiful glow to cheekbones and browbones, a bit on the bridge of your nose slims it down, a dab in the corner of the eye gives them a wide awake appearance and on the cupid's bow lips look plumper. Just gorgeous and I use it every day (which is saying something because I own about ten highlighters!) Very impressed with the packaging too, it has this mesh on top that stops product falling out the pot and also means it's easy to control how much you get on the brush.

I'm 100% going to be getting more from this collection, it's a little pricier than most stuff on the high street but I'm so impressed with the quality and feel like it's a reliable brand, although the base products are a bit of a waste of time as they only cater for one skin tone (I feel like there's no point doing them unless you're going to accommodate everyone!) Also worth noting that all of this is suitable for vegans and vegetarians, with the leaping bunny seal of approval! I've put together a little wishlist below, I have a strong feeling that the palette (love a good palette!) will be mine.

Have you tried anything from the Rosie for Autograph range?
