Accessorize Autumn/Winter Cosmetics Collection

Let’s be honest. Accessorize is not a shop you would associate with make up. Gorgeous jewellery, bags, shoes and accessories yes, but foundation, blushers and mascara’s, no.

 Despite the fact that Accessorize launched their cosmetics range over a year ago, i had yet to ever try them out, probably partly due to the fact that the make- up snob within me viewed the range as being aimed at teeny-boppers and the other being that as cosmetics aren’t Accessorizes main selling attraction, i may have assumed that they were a poorly made, bad quality after thought.

 I’m happy to say i was wrong and that i was really quite impressed with their range of items which i tried from their A/W 2011 collection.

 It wasn’t just the gorgeous packaging that won  me over, with the shiny, neat pots and tubes emblazoned with images of golden butterflies, but the quality of the items themselves.

I tried out several items from the collection and fell in love with them all pretty much from the word go.

Baked Bronzer Duo Ball in Shade 2, £6, was divine. One half of the baked ball being a rich, matte bronze and the other adding more shine and sparkle.

 Baked Blusher in Quiver, £5, looked a lovely pinky, pearly shade in the pot but transformed into a gorgeous, matte blush with just a hint of shimmer to bring your cheeks to life.

 The Baked Duo Eyeshadow in Thalia, £2, was my favourite. Beautiful to look at you could easily get lost in the swirls and glimmer of the shadow. Easy to apply and highly pigmented it looked gorgeous on my eyelids.

 Similarly the Baked Eyeshadow Trio in Dazzlingly Devastating  whilst beautiful to look at is perfect for creating depth and shading on your eyelids, with deep, rich, highly pigmented tones which are easy to blend.

The Picture Perfect long Lasting Foundation with SPF 20 was creamy, rich and provided more than adequate coverage on my skin and for £8 i think its a total bargain, just be careful when squeezing the product from the tube as the hole which it is dispensed from is rather large, resulting in a lot of product being released at one go.

Finally is their Collagen Mascara, £6. The big brush and ultra volumising formula results in big, fat lashes and the tube is so pretty! I love big brushes and this one doesnt bring out too much product with it and the formula builds really nicely without clumping.

Accessorize cosmetics are available from Accessorize stores and Superdrug and for such gorgeous items i think they are incredibly reasonably priced and would make gorgeous stocking fillers!

What do you think, have you tried any of the Accessorize cosmetics range?
