M&S has launched a very impressive cosmetics collection with british model, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Unlike many celebrity endorsed products, this one looks AND acts the party of a luxury brand but starts at £10.
The 50 strong collection features everything from soft velvety lipsticks to creamy blushers and light-diffusing radiance creams – all in subtle iridescent shades sure to bring your complexion back to its glowing best.
If you only go away with one product make it the Insta Glow Blusher, £20. Formulated with light-reflecting pearls, it blends into skin for a glow that’s instantly noticeable.

M&S sells a smorgasbord of beauty brands these days, but we still love Autograph for beauty solutions. This Twist Up Cheeks chunky higlighter, £19.50 comes in a flatter-all rosy tone, has a creamy texture that blends beautifully and will work just as well on shoulders and brows as it does cheeks.
