My Oxfordshire correspondent, next-eldest sister Hannah, has some important information about Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley’s collaboration with Marks and Spencer on make-up.
“Personally, I am not a great believer in celebrity collaborations but I am preparing to do a major U-turn having discovered Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s beauty range for Autograph at M&S.
The packaging is pretty but a bit cheap and plasticky, and also a tad rip-offy of Charlotte Tilbury, but there’s some truly great products.
I bought the Instant-Glow bronzing powder which is sheer and biscuity and AMAZING for fluffing on in vast quantities to perk up sad summer skin without being sparkly or looking like dirt.
I also got a fat lip balm pencil called a Lip-Glossy in a shade irritatingly named Sweet Nothing Kisses which you can swipe on quickly without it feeling sticky or gluey. It lives in my handbag and when I put it on I feel like I have made An Effort which is rare.
I could easily have bought the Amazing Radiance Cream and any of the Cream Eye Shadow sticks, but I thought that was enough as I’d only popped in for some chicken teddies.”
More news from Banbury and the surrounding area as I have it.
