I've been dreaming of occasions to wear this glamorous lipstick, but with my life just being casual office wear, presentations and meetings with agencies, wearing a bright lipstick is frowned upon. This isn't the norm, by the way, just in case I've made you rethink corporate life - it's just this particular company that I work for, where wearing a novelty jumper embroidered with the brand you're working on is the height of sophistication. Yawn.
It is a bit annoying, which is probably why my weekend outfits and make-up are probably so over the top. Picnic at the local park? Chanel lipstick and a cocktail dress, right?
I felt that Rosie For Autograph collection deserved a real first outing, especially as the colour is so beautiful - both inside the packaging and out of it, so I waited until I had an evening do to rock this one. And it went down a treat!
You can tell that Rosie really took her inspiration from Charlotte Tilbury, because this collection really reminds me of the magnificent make-up mogul. From the gorgeous rose gold packaging to the products available, the Rosie For Autograph range is really a dupe for many Charlotte Tilbury products that are slightly out of your price range.
I was finding it difficult to choose a colour, but I thought I'd go all out for the first purchase in the range. Laugh Out Loud is a beautiful coral red. It's bright, vivacious and full of life, and yet not overbearing and certainly very light and creamy. It's a joyful red that is bound to lift any look and would look amazing as part of an evening out, or as a way to quickly glam up a Sunday outfit of grey jumper and ripped jeans. It's versatile - and that's what's great about this particular shade.
I love the heavy feel of the lipstick. Despite it being part of the Marks & Spencers range, Rosie For Autograph is pure elegance and the weight makes it feel like an upmarket purchase.
The lipstick has a slight sheen to it, but it feels moisturising and wipes off like a dream if you're one of those scatty people that changes their mind a lot (like me!)
Colour Intensity: high
Finish: slight sheen, moisturising
Overall Rating: 4/5
