When I posted this up on Instagram (@britbeautyblog), I asked people to guess what brand this is. I got everything from Charlotte Tilbury to MakeUp Revolution, but one thing is for sure, it doesn’t look like M&S. The Marks & Spencer Autograph Autumn Beauty Collection is in rose gold, and so beautifully done, too – it doesn’t slip off into that brassy look that some rose golds do. Above is the Pure Colour Multi Bronzer, £12.50. This is a very, very lightly pigmented bronzer – I’m not sure I’d call it a bronzer at all. When I tried it on my face though, it does give cheekbones that sheer illuminated look with no obvious glitter chunks and some warmth (but it is shimmery). If any pale tones have ever struggled with bronzer being too dark or too orange, this could be the solution. However, for now, it’s in my drawer as a highlighter.
One of the other key items in the Marks & Spencer Autograph Autumn Beauty collection is the quad palette, £12.50. Again, pigment is light, but buildable, with some lovely, warm shades that are so easy to wear.
The shades are sheeny without being over the top – I’d easily wear all of these colours, either individually or as a smoky eye look. I find its best to use an eye primer with these textures.
The collection (there are more pieces that I’ll show later on) launches on 28th August.

It looks amazing – both the shades and the packaging look very promising! :o) Xx

It looks beautiful. I’ve only recently discovered the joy of the M&S beauty hall but can’t wait to pick one of these up!
These look great – as a super pale person I like the highlighting/bronzing palette too. Can you recommend an eye primer?
I use Urban Decay eye primer but have recently discovered the new Eye BB creams from bareMinerals x
These look fantastic! I never think of M&S for beauty. The packaging is gorgeous! xxx Thou Shalt Not Covet
This looks like a lovely collection! Will have to check it out 🙂
I agree, it looks beautiful!
I have never tried anything from m&s beauty line but i have seen so much about it on blogs recently it has really tempted me to give it a try. The colours in the quad are beautiful, perfect glowy everyday shadows but can be used together for a great smokey eye,

That quad looks so pretty, and the bronzer looks just as nice,
These look lovely, never would’ve guessed it was M&S xx
Oh wow, I really like the look of this new collection. The packaging is luxurious & the products look very pretty. The quad is my ideal colours and that bronzer looks like it wouldn’t be out of place on a high end counter. I am very excited for this collection
That is SO like Clarins! Wow.
