Marks and Spencer spring/summer beauty

I don't know about you, but for a long time I associated Marks and Spencer as a shop more suited to someone my mum's age (albeit with some delicious food!).

They seem to have been doing a lot of work to change this view of late, not least with their newly revamped beauty departments.

M&S has now become a place that you can pop in and pick up products from brands like Phillip Kingsley, Nuxe, Diego Della Palma and of course their own Limited Collection and Autograph lines. I actually spent a good hour browsing the Bluewater beauty section with my mum not long after it launched and she virtually had to drag me away!

Loving the colours! 

I was really excited to pop along to their Spring/Summer Beauty event earlier this week to see some of the new launches they had planned for the coming months.

Fab Hello Kitty goodies for the young at heart (or actually young)
The event was lovely - there were stands set up around the room with all of the new products on, plus opportunities to decorate some cookies, get a mini manicure or make your own fragrance. I had a go at making my own perfume with help from the team at Fragonard. It turns out scent-making is not my skill, but it was good fun nonetheless!

I wanted to kidnap this white rabbit...

Perfect Spring nail colours from Leighton Denny
Some of my favourite things that I spotted from the upcoming collections were a set of pink bristled travel brushes from the Limited Collection, an Autograph eye palette with some stunning colours, and of course, REN! M&S have started selling REN products in some of their larger stores, so you can imagine how pleased I am!

How can you not love a pink brush?!
New skincare ranges

Gorgeous Autograph palette

I want ALL of these lip crayons!
Hello Kitty lip gloss tins - how cute!!
All in all, I'm really impressed with the offerings coming from M&S Beauty. They've certainly made it into my 'beauty shops to visit' list!

What are your thoughts on the new collections?


  1. Ooo this is interesting, seems like they've got a lot of brands that aren't normally so accessible. Their Autograph palette looks a lot like the Urban Decay Naked palette too!



    1. I thought that too - i expect the palette will be very popular!

  2. I love the look of the blushes. Can't believe it's from Marks and Spencers xx

    1. I know - they are really making some fab stuff!

  3. The big palette looks similar to the Naked Palette - but with more shimmer!
