Rosie for Autograph at M&S Makeup Collection

Posted on May 18, 2016

M&S-Rosie-for-Autograph-Makeup-Collection

Hi Guys,

Now you know how much I love rose gold – I know it’s such a blogger cliche but I really don’t care! So when the Rosie Huntington-Whitely for Autograph collection arrived at M&S, I was in some sort of crazy rose gold beauty heaven! The collection is SO beautiful, as well as being affordable, I couldn’t wait to try the products out and tell you all about them…

The exclusive Rosie for Autograph make up range has been developed in collaboration with Rosie Huntington Whiteley. Combining Rosie’s make up tips and secrets with high quality ingredients, this range is developed to deliver amazing results. Inspired by Rosie’s career as a model, actress and her love of vintage, at the heart of this exclusive beauty collection lies Rosie’s natural, glamorous look.

The collection contains a massive range of colour products, including pretty much everything you can imagine – there’s a lovely selection of eyshadow palettes, products for highlighting and bronzing, some gorgeous looking lipsticks, and a lovely collection of fragrances.

It’s also worth mentioning that this range of products is ‘Made with integrity‘, with neither the products nor their ingredients having been tested on animals.

Starting with the Eyeshadow Palette (£18.00) – there are four options available of this eyeshadow quad, all with neutral, easy to wear shades –  I have Copper Gold Rush, which includes a light muted lilac matte shade, a  mauve pink shimmer, a mid coffee brown cool toned shade, and a light creamy pink.

The formula of the shadows is fine and creamy, and they really do apply and blend like a dream!

Next is the Cream Blush (£14.00) – this is described as a silky soft weightless cream blush, that blends and builds easily to an undetectable powder finish – and it does exactly that. It has a wonderfully creamy velvet texture, that applies like a cream but gives a powder finish on the skin. I have the shade Camisole Blush which is gorgeous muted peachy coral, perfect for summer.

The Amazing Radiance Cream (£18.00) is a light weight, brightening cream created to add instant radiance to your complexion. Much like a strobe cream, or even a brightening moisturiser, the Amazing Radiance Cream gives a hint of glow and sheen to the skin, perfect for adding luminosity before applying your foundation. I should just point out this has a very light, easy to wear texture, and you can easily wear this on it’s own, or under foundation – this is a must have for a natural looking dewy glow.

rosie-for-autograph-bronzer-review

The Bronzer (£18.00) comes in two shades – Magic Contour, the lightest shade which I have above, and Bronzed Beauty which is slightly darker. Magic Contour is the perfect bronzer for very light to light skin tones – which can be notoriously difficult to find the right shade for. This product gives a really natural sun-kissed look to the skin, without making skin look muddy or orange. The formula is silky and soft, giving a slight soft-focus effect for a smoother looking complexion.

rosie-for-autograph-cream-eyeshadow-stick-review

And lastly the Cream Eyeshadow Stick (£12.50) again this comes in four neutral shades, I have Almond Eyes, a beautiful champagne beige shade with a metallic finish. It glides on the lid really easily with no tugging, and blends out to give either a sheer shimmery wash of colour, or you can easily build up the product for a more intense look. The finish is long-lasting and crease resistant.

Overall it’s just a stunning collection, the packaging is gorgeous, as well as being fantastic quality, and the products are well worth their pricing. I can’t get enough of the Amazing Radiance Cream and Bronzer right now!

Michael Kors – The Gold Fragrance Collection

Posted on August 7, 2015

michael-kors-gold-fragrance-collection

Hi Guys!

This is the very first appearance of Michael Kors perfumes on the blog today, and I’m so excited to be able to share with you a couple of fragrances from the brand new Gold Collection!

We all know Mr Kors is famous for incorporating a touch of bling into his products, whether it’s his signature initial hardware on his bags (My father in law who’s not in the know about these things, thought the gold MK tag on my bag was something I’d bought especially, as they’re my initials too, ha ha!) or his beautiful statement watches – and yes I have a rose gold one which I LOVE! I often use it as an accessory in the background of my blog photos because it’s so pretty.

The Gold Collection comprises of three individual scents, each designed to reflect the opulence and luxury of the highly prized metal – from white, to rose, to 24K gold, and come packaged in the shiniest, metallic bottles I’ve ever seen. (FYI, photographing highly reflective products is actually really difficult!) Out of the three, I have the White Luminous Gold and Rose Radiant Gold fragrances.

I know packaging isn’t everything, but you really can’t beat a beautiful looking product, can you?

micahel-kors-new-fragrances

The three fragrances that make up this collection were each carefully chosen and constructed with the Michael Kors woman in mind, offering a scent for every occasion, mood and personal aesthetic:

  • WHITE LUMINOUS GOLD: Sparkling and sensuous, White Luminous Gold is an intoxicating burst of pear, jasmine and amber in a bright and exotic signature.
  • 24K BRILLIANT GOLD: Feminine and seductive, 24K Brilliant Gold shimmers with orange mandarin, voluptuous florals and a rousing spark of woodiness.
  • ROSE RADIANT GOLD: Tantalising and hypnotic, Rose Radiant Gold entices with a spotlight on sparkling spice, textured with a charming femininity of rich florals and soft musks.

Michael Kors has also launched a new jewellery collection to coincide with The Gold Collection. His new sleek and sculptural accessories have been designed specifically to mirror the aesthetic of these beautiful fragrance bottles – I can’t wait to see the new jewellery line!

I love both of these fragrances, and I don’t actually think I can choose a favourite at the moment. I’d love to hear if you’re a fan of Michael Kors products? I’d definitely recommend giving these a sniff when they’re launched!

White Luminous Gold, 24K Brilliant Gold and Rose Radiant Gold are available in 30ml (RRP £39), 50ml (RRP £58) and 100ml (RRP £79) bottles. They will be available to purchase nationwide from 19th August 2015.

Rose-Golden-Volume-2-Collection-1

Hi Guys!

I’ve just heard about the brand new Zoeva collection and I had to share!

I’ve had my eye on Zoeva brushes for a long time now, and I’ve been on their site adding brushes to my bag, taking them out and changing them, adding different ones, and just generally being unable to make a decision about which ones to go for! And I’m kind of glad I didn’t take the plunge yet because they’re launching a brand new rose gold collection at the end of February!

The Rose Golden Vol. 2 collection contains some really exciting and unusual products. There are two new brush sets, a brand new eyeshadow palette, brush holder pots, and even a bracelet! Rose-Golden-Volume-2-Collection-2

The Princess Palette.

The ZOEVA Rose Golden Palette is inspired by a woman’s gentle side – a harmony of lustrous hues in rose golden and royally dark browns for shimmery natural and dramatic glamour makeup looks. The Rose Golden Palette underlines the feminine side and reminds one – being a woman is a pleasure. A woman, who is in love with a special someone or life itself. (£15)

zoeva-bangle

The ZOE BANGLE is the first ZOEVA jewellry item.

The rose golden bangle signifies modern femininity. Beautified with the ZOEVA symbol, it embodies the essence of soft elegance. It shows the world who you are – a unique character with a passion for aesthetics and a beautiful, simple design. Made of brass and enamel, nickel free Measurements : width 2 cm, diameter 7 cm. (£32)

I can’t tell you how excited I am for this collection! I’m definitely going to buy the brush sets, DEFINITELY. But I’m also really tempted by the brush holder, and the palette too!

The Zoeva Rose Golden Vol. 2 Collection will be on sale from 23rd February.

Jewellery | Thomas Sabo at Joshua James

Posted on November 29, 2014

joshua-james-ring

Hi Guys!

Recently Joshua James asked me to take a look at their site and pick a piece of jewellery to share with you on my blog. I was completely over the moon, and to say I was spoilt for choice is an understatement! Joshua James stock many top brands including Thomas Sabo, Trollbeads, Pandora, Michael Kors, DKNY and Fiorelli, and after spending forever trying to decide, I went with a beautiful Thomas Sabo Rose Gold Purity of Lotos Ring.

thomas-sabo-rose-gold-ring

This ring is brand new to Thomas Sabo and part of their Autumn 2014 Sterling Silver Glam & Soul Collection. It’s beautifully crafted from sterling silver and 18k rose gold plating, with a striking rose quartz as the centrepiece surrounded by dazzling white zirconia stone detail. It’s easily one of the prettiest rings I’ve ever seen!

thomas-sabo-purity-of-lotos-ring

I’m a massive jewellery fan but I’ve never had the pleasure of owning any Thomas Sabo pieces before. After looking through their collections I’ve realised they really do have a vast array of jewellery to suit different tastes, and I’m completely in love with the pretty Glam & Soul collection! I love that it’s kind of half way between high fashion and fine jewellery, using fashion styling with top quality materials to create stunning pieces.

ciate-nail-polish

I decided to team my ring with a similar sparkling nail polish look – I borrowed my Mum’s polishes and went for Ciate’s Amazing Gracie with Antique Brooch on top. The sparkly and glittery top coat of Antique Brooch really gave a lovely high shine glitzy finish but unfortunately my photos didn’t capture this, boo!

My new ring is so gorgeous, it’s pretty and delicate – Im not keen on chunky rings as I have short fingers – and this is just the right size for me. I’ts detailed without being over the top, and basically ticks all the boxes for me! I’d highly recommend you check out the Joshua James site if you’re looking for jewellery gifts this christmas!

Joshu James currently have 10% off all Thomas Sabo and Trollbeads products until 01/12/14, just use code BLACK10 at the checkout!

Zoeva Rose Gold Luxury Brush Set GIVEAWAY!

Posted on August 27, 2014

zoeva-rose-gold-brush-set

Hi Guys!

Well I have a feeling today’s post is going to be a popular one! The lovely people at Legal and General asked me to think about which item(s) I think are worth investing in. What would I spend a bit more money on if I could? What would I choose to invest in if I had the choice? Well of course makeup and skincare sprang to mind – funny that! One of the things that I first thought of was makeup brushes. I’ve had countless cheap sets of makeup brushes over the years that just don’t last. Apart from the obvious bristle shedding – and yes I have ended up with a beard when applying my bronzer – I’ve also had handles fall off, and brushes appear to completely disintegrate before my eyes. There are loads of brands out there offering fab makeup brushes these days, but decent brushes often come at a price, and great brushes are usually out of my price range! A while ago I created this Rose Gold themed wish list including my dream makeup brush set – the . These brushes are of course gorgeous, but as well as looking great they’re of the highest quality too. Legal and General would like to give this amazing set away worth €65 to one lucky winner, and all you have to do is enter via the rafflecopter widget below – please also leave me a comment for extra entries!

This giveaway will run for two weeks, and it’s open internationally. The brush set on offer is the one you see in this post, I have opened it to photograph only. If you have any questions please feel free to drop me a line. Good luck! xxx


A Rose Gold Obsession… | Wish List

Posted on August 8, 2014

rose-gold-wish-list Hi Guys! I thought I’d put together a little wish list today, to show you just a few of the gorgeous things I’ve been lusting after lately. I’ve come to realise I have a slight rose gold obsession, from actual rose gold jewellery to Charlotte Tilbury makeup which comes in rose gold packaging, I just can’t get enough of it! I’ve had my eye on the Zoeva Rose Gold Luxury brush set for a long time too, unfortunately I can’t justify purchasing them as I really don’t need any more brushes at the moment. And don’t even get me started on Rebecca Minkoff! I have a Rebecca Minkoff Mac bag and I just can’t get enough of this white Mini Mac with rose gold hardwear, arrrgh there are so many gorgeous things! Are you a rose gold fan? I’d love to hear if you like my wish list! xxx Rose Gold Love Ring  |  Deborah Lipmann Glamorous Life Nail Polish  |    |    |    |    |    |  Badgley Mischka Gelsey Heels  |    |
