Marks and Spencer Sell Make-Up!?

Every year, my Grandad always gets me Marks & Spencer vouchers for Christmas. Of course I am extremely grateful for this gift but I always struggle with what to buy. Last year I brought some PJ's and tights (soooo comfortable!) so I planned to do the same this year. Now, I know that M&S do their own brand of make-up called Autograph but I've tried their products before and didn't really get on with them. This was a few years ago so I'm sure the formulas have developed but I just seem to avoid those products. Anyway, I was on the floor on the with the PJ's and underwear and I spotted a beauty section. I decided to have a look around and I genuinely ended up dancing a little when I saw some of the brands they sold. I couldn't believe it. I spotted; Barry M, Bourjois, Pur, Nails Inc and the most surprising, Stila and Pixi. I quickly put all the stuff back that I had grabbed and ended up spending all of my vouchers on make-up. I'm not even sorry. Here's what I brought;

I went to the Stila counter first and picked up the Eyes are the Window eyeshadow palette in Soul. This palette has a hefty price tag but the colour selection is so pretty. It has a mixture of matte and satin finishes. Super happy with the purchase!

I then picked up Stila's One Step Skin Tone Illuminating Serum as I'd seen it all over the internet. As mentioned in a previous post, I never really reach for cream highlighters but the product was too hard to resist. I mean, how cool!? I then went to the Pixi counter and picked up their H2O Skin Tinted Face Gel. I am in love with the Pixi packaging and this product looked great for my holiday this summer. It looks like a really light and thin formula.

I then got a Brow Gel from Stila which comes with a double ended brush. Again, I tend to use powders to shape by brows so I thought I would try something new. I also got a Eye Pencil from Pixi in Black/Blue to use on my water line. This colour really seems to make my eyes look bigger and brighter.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing what I got in M&S!
