Have you tried Autograph Amazing Radiance Cream by Rosie Huntington-Whitely?

For a while now I've been wanting to try the new Rosie Huntington-Whitely skincare and make up range for Autograph.  Rosie has been modelling for Marks and Spencer for quite some time and has had her lingerie collection in store for a while now and this year she has branched into skincare and make up.

Marks and Spencer beauty department has changed!

Marks and Spencer have always had a beauty department but over the last couple of years it has really changed.  It used to be a few body creams and shower gels with the odd lipstick and eye shadow thrown in but they had a big refurbishment in 2014 and now the beauty department is somewhere I can get lost in for quite a long time, it's very nicely set out and has a nice mixture of brands from Stila, Ren and Cowshed to Pixi by Petra, Barry M and Bourjois.

Why did I buy it?

I knew when I went into the shop that I was going to get something from Miss Rosie H-W's range as I'd seen it advertised and had read about it but I just wasn't sure what I wanted.  The lipsticks were lovely colours but I wasn't in the market for another lipstick, then I checked out the blushers but again, they were pretty much what I already had at home.  So after much consideration I chose two products to purchase, the Amazing Radiance Cream and an eye shadow palette.  I have more than enough eye shadow palettes but they are my "thing" and I couldn't resist plus I knew I'd use it.

What does it do?

The 35ml Amazing Radiance Cream comes in a little bottle in a rose gold box.  I love rose gold, I know it's everywhere at the moment but I do love it.  The cream is a "brightening cream for instant radiance", sounds good, right?  An added plus is that it has a small amount of SPF in it (SPF 6) which is not a sunblock by any means but definitely worth having in a face cream. 

While this can be worn by itself or under a foundation I have actually only used it as a highlighter so far, on my cheeks and a little bit on my brows.  I can see why it is called a radiance cream because the shimmery pigments do perk up the skin considerably and I was pleased that it can be easily blended and that it sits well with blusher over the top, or over the top of blusher too.

Would I buy it again?

The only thing I'm not thrilled about is the price, this cream costs £18.  While it is lovely I'd have been happier paying around the £12 or £13 mark for it but I can see that there would have been marketing costs and the packaging is really pretty.  I'd have to think hard about replacing it as I do own other highlighters that do the same job for less money.

Here's the link to Rosie's Autograph range if you want to have a look.  By the way, I love the Rosie eye shadow palette and I'll review that soon.
