How gorgeous is this palette? As you all know I’m a lover of beauty, but never known M&S to have their own beauty range and was beyond excited to give this a whirl. This is the Limited Edition Face Palette by M&S.
Can we please first start with the packaging? I adore the artistic vision they brought to this palette. The simple art along with all your make up needs on one side. Its a great flat pack too, perfect for travel.
Now the palette. Lets start with eye shadows. This offers a range of matte and shimmer in the most stunning shades. These colours are perfect for all year round (but I can definitely see this being used a lot in spring!) All in all they are pigmented and blend beautifully. But did find more shades were easier to use than others. The darker shades are a lot more pigment and blended out much easier than the lighter shades. These needed to be layered to really see the colour – but its build-able which anyone can work with.
Now my favourite make up essentials – blusher and highlight. The blush is a subtle rose shade – absolutely beautiful when applied, again this needed to be packed on but love that you can create your own intensity and it sits lovely on the skin. This would sit wonderfully on fairer skin and bring a natural rose glow to the cheeks.
The highlight is my absolute favourite. I love gold tones and it suits all make up looks. Not only is it pigmented, you can create your own glow. Whether you want it fierce or natural, you can easily build on the colour. I love that its lasts all day too. Once you apply your fixing spray it just holds it perfectly in place without even needing a touch up during the day. Its also great to add a bit of zing to your inner eye corner too.
I could not seem to find this online :S – assume this was only released for Christmas, but do check out the rest of their small range.
Have you ever tried make up from M&S?
