Accessorize New A/W 2011 Makeup Collection

Accessorize have launched their new makeup collection which includes a fab foundation with SPF20!! The collection also consists of new baked blusher shades and eye shadow shades and 2 new mascaras. Photos??? Yep they're coming right up now peeps feast your eyes...

Picture Perfect feels great on the skin and gives a great full coverage, this is in the shade of Warm Honey and even though I'm fair this is slightly to cool for my skin so I need to use bronzer over the top it give me more colour. However apart from that I would say for the price this is a good all rounder, there's 5 shades to pick from so I would prob be the next shade up or maybe mix it with this shade to get a better match.

£8 / 35ml

Next up is my favourite item out of the collection which is one of their baked blushers in the shade Wowzers, I've been reaching for this blush lots lately and had a great response to it. You've probably seen the photos from my Saturdays face post but I'm actually wearing the products mentioned in this post. I love the soft cool pink shade it creates which my skin tone. These blushers are so pretty with a marbles pattern, there's another 3 shades which all look stunning and I have my eyes on them.


Accessorize have also released new shades of their popular baked bronzers, look at how gorgeous these duo baked bronzers are. They look so smooth and they feel so smooth to touch, I did think they both look very similar but once swatched to the eye they are slightly different however if I had to pick one I would probably pick Pearl Sands because the darker bronze shade looks more of a matte whereas Bondi has a slight shimmer to the darker shade and think for the winter a matte bronzer works better. Both of these will give you that healthy glow which sometimes we lack in the winter so why not cheat and use one of these to give you a quick pick me up.

I'm afraid to say that both the mascaras from the collection where disappointing for myself, I tried them both a couple times each and just found they didn't coat my lashes well and took a long time to build up the product. If you're looking for a VERY natural look then both of them would be fine but if like me you like thick long black lashes I would give these a miss. 

Waterproof Mascara £5.50 and Collagen Mascara £6

Baked Eyeshadow Duo & Trio, both of these a stunning and perfect for the festive season, if you follow my blog then you will know that I've taken a personal liking to grey shadows. I find myself wearing a dark charcoal shadow most days with a soft pink lip and cheek. I have used both of these during the day very softly on the lid a made sure I really buffed out the lines. They both have staying power and I couldn't pick between the pair because they both have beautiful shades. I would say that the marble shadow Aphrodite would be more of an evening shade because it's too sparkly for day wear for me personally. I like to wear a matte smokey eye for the day. You can use these dry or wet for more intense look or even an eyeliner. I found them very pigmented and would recommend these to everyone.

I've shown posted these images before but wanted to share them again here with this post as these are the products I've used to create my FOTD.

Have you tried anything from the new collection?
Does anything tickle your fancy?


  1. The aphrodite eyeshadow looks AMAZING!
    I really want to try some of these products now, I tried some of their nailpolishes before and they were horrible, but since you've vouched for these I think I might have to give them another try!


  2. I love accessorise goodies they look amazing are brilliant quality and the packaging is soooo cute

  3. Adore that colour on your eyes - it looks like it has a slightly greeny tint off it. V pretty.
