I Love Makeup - Marks and Spencer Limited Collection




Break out the hearts this Valentine's Day with this cute makeup collection from Marks and Spencer's Limited Collection. I was sent a few items from the range and as I am an old romantic at heart, was instantly smitten at the heart design packaging and most impressed with the heart shaped lipstick!

Limited Collection Heart Shadow Palette £8.50 

6 shadows, a double sided applicator and a mirror encased in a hearts printed box. I must admit to taking a look at this and dismissing it as not colours I would really wear..until I swatched it. The shadow palette has some really nice pastel shades and with the addition of the gorgeous shimmer and blending quality is really rather pretty.

The mint, silver, pale pink and the deeper purple are stand out shades.

Limited Collection Heart Blusher £6



Now this blusher is my favourite product. It is quite subtle but can be layered for stronger, buildable colour and contains fine shimmer that provides a really healthy glow to cheeks. Love it, but then I am quite a magpie when it comes to blushers and with each mosaic imprinted with a tiny heart, what more could you want.

Limited Collection Heart Lipstick in Rose £5

A lipstick bullet shaped as a heart, too pretty and wonderful to whip out on date night :-) I was a little concerned as to how this would apply but as it happens I needn't have worried. It creates the perfect line (as you can see from the swatch) On the lips it applies evenly, with a creamy texture the finish is slightly glossy, as it is highly pigmented one application is all you need. The perfect hot pink shade to make a real impact with the one you love on Valentine's evening.
