Marks and Spencer is the first place I go to for luxurious food but to be totally honest I never really stop by their cosmetics for a look.
We were recently kindly sent some products from their new Limited collection range and we were pleasantly suprised.
The packaging is refreshingly simple and clean with no gimmicks. Transparent casing allows you to see the colour easily but it is also sturdy plastic so it wont smash on first drop!
The product line up consists of all your basics without tons of different finishes and coverages to get you confused.
The base make-up shades I would say cater for a porcelain skin colour up to a mid toned olive. Not much in the way for deeper skin tones i'm afraid.
The foundation gives a medium moisturised coverage that is quite matte once dry and the moisture tint is very sheer and lightweight the colours come up slightly pinky undertone.
Eyeshadows are available in trios or singles and have some really pretty fresh colours for summer.
They glide on smoothly and have a nice texture but be careful to not over blend as they do sheer out a lot when blended.
Available in an amazing turquoise which is identical to MAC Aqualine, a metallic gunmetal and jet black. The brush is a nice tapered firm brush and the texture is thick, not too watery and dries super fast. Colour payoff is excellent.
Also, I love a plum mascara on blue or green eyes and this volumising mascara in purple make this colour eye pop!! Also available in black and brown.
There are 18 colours in lipstick, ranging from a clear through to a deep magenta plum with a satin finish that are complemented with some truly beautiful lipglosses.
I absolutely love the gloss in Nude and Soft Apricot, they are really gorgeous while being glossy but not sticky.
The Nail polish comes in a huge range of 25 colours that sit nicely with the trends of the summer. The polish is thick and creamy and wears well on the nail.
Prices are so reasonable with foundation at £6.00, eyeshadows at £4.00 and lipsticks and glosses at £5.00
