It's almost been a year, can we believe, since the Rosie For Autograph makeup range launched and I went swatch happy in M&S (refer to this post for the full collection evidence of my swatch party), and I'm still just as utterly enamoured with the range as I was back then. Just in time for Christmas and all that, Rosie's given us a beautiful Eye and Cheek palette, available here, that I ripped open with earnest - read on for swatches and my thoughts!

Carrying on the theme throughout her collection, the packaging is beautifully simple - black, slimline, with just the logo on the lid, picked out in rose gold, although I've got to admit it feels a little plastic-y - but I'll excuse it for what's inside. Open the lid and you're met with 6 shadows, a bronzer, cream highlight, and one of the gorgeous cream blushes, handpicked by Rosie, vegetarian and cruelty free. There's enough here to do a full face which I think is great for travel/convenience and lazy days. Immediately on looking at the palette, it really reminds me of the Marc Jacobs Objects of Desire palette - 6 shadows, consisting of golden neutrals, browns and purpley shades, a blush, highlight and contour, but this one costs £30 less. In fact, you could get both this and one of the gorgeous Stila Perfect Me palettes for the price of the MJ one... paws for thought right?

So starting with the shadows, the overall colour palette is pretty warm and the texture across the board is wonderfully buttery and creamy, with good pigment. I love the plummy shade, it's incredibly beautiful as a wash over the eye, then intensified by using it damp in the centre of the lid. Even the ivory shade, which I usually wouldn't be drawn to, works as a lovely inner corner highlight.

Gossip - Softly metallic, off-white/ivory
Iconic Rose - Creamy, slightly metallic golden beige - similar to (but lighter than) Burberry Pale Barley, not pink at all like the name might suggest.
Velvet Rose - Metallic mulberry with subtle, multifaceted shimmer.
Bitter - Midtoned brown with golden shimmer.
Causing A Stir - True gold metallic.
Talk That Talk - Deep, dark, creamy brown.

Onto cheeks, the powder bronzer, 'Bronzed Beauty', is really pigmented but smooth and blendable. As a bronzer it's nicely neutral in tone, perhaps leaning on the slightly warm side but by no means looking orange-y or muddy. If you've a warm skintone, you could even get away with this as a contour, as it's quite close in colour to the contour stick in the range. For me, I like to use it incredibly lightly, on a big fluffy tapered brush like the RT blush brush, and sweep around the perimeter of my face to add warmth and dimension - really pretty. In fact, there's a new Rosie For Autograph Brush Set that looks stunning, and there's a nice, fat, tapered brush in that - I'm so tempted to pick it up!

'Get That Glow', the cream highlighter in the palette is beautiful. You may have read in my full review of the RFA range how much I adore the loose powder highlighter in Rosebud, and this cream version has a similar colour and tone, something I loved about the original. It's got that pinky-oyster tinge, not dissimilar to Tom Ford's Shimmer Shot in Spin Spin Sugar (full review here) that I really enjoy - it looks stunning on the high points of the cheekbones, especially on reasonably fair skin (I'm a Chanel B20). The formula is lovely and fine, doesn't exaggerate pores, and lasts well on my skin - a good 4-6 hours.

The blush, in 'English Rose Flush', I also love. Similarly creamy, pigmented, smooth, even and blendable as the RFA cream blush compacts, the shade this time is a juicy, rosy pink, with the perfect tone to enliven just about any skin tone - I think this one's really versatile. It has the same name as one of the individual blushes but that seemed more peachy from memory, whereas this one pulls a bit more rosy. Although pigmented, it sheers out to the most natural of flushes, or you can build it up to create a stronger, brighter look - it layers really well on top of itself and lasts well on the skin without breaking up or fading.

I've got to say I love the palette. I'd say the face portion is just as good as the Estee Lauder Golden Goddess palette (full review here) I raved about, and the shadows are a wonderfully wearable mix of shades - I'm giving it a huge thumbs up!

  17. This eye shadow palette really looks amazing! :) Did you know I've been eyeing Maybelline's eye shadow palettes but I couldn't choose if I should go for the nudes or the blush. What should I go for, though? I'm planning to use it for internships or office work, something like that. :) This is my first time to hear of this brand. I think this isn't available in my country especially in our province. The only available brands so far in our place are Maybelline, Revlon, Ever Bilena and you know, the local make up line in our country. Hehe :)
