We love the bold print featured on the Holly Sharpe packaging

The M&S Limited Collection cosmetics have been given a fashion illustrator makeover, and it’s something that you won’t want to miss out on.

Talented fashion illustrator, Holly Sharpe has given 19 pieces a makeover with a distinct Exotic Girl illustration.

These are not beauty pieces you’ll want to lose to the depths of your make-up bag, the packaging is so beautiful you’ll be showing it off at every opportunity.

The blusher is one of our favourite pieces; a peachy shade that’s perfect for summer months overlaid with the signature Exotic Girl illustration in gold iridescent – it’s almost too pretty to use. We compare this shade to the iconic Nars Orgasm blush.

Not only is this a first for M&S Beauty, but it also marks Holly’s first-ever foray into the world of beauty packaging.

“As a fashion illustrator I see beauty everywhere. I love to use beauty as a form of creative expression, experimenting with colour and scent,” says Holly. “I am delighted to be working with M&S, it’s such a great brand that is always associated with quality and Britishness.”

Taking its influence from Mardi Gras, Holly Sharpe for Limited Collection brings a colourful edge to the season. With a high summer, bold carnival vibe, abstract feather patters and boho inspired tropical prints and colours, including intense pink, orange and tomato red, the rand includes matte lipsticks, quad eyeshadow palette, kohl kajal eyes, and double-ended nail polished as well as a range of cosmetic gifts.

The packaging is beautiful and the beauty products inside are of a high quality – the lipstick is extremely pigmented and moisturising too and the kajal kohl liners are easy to apply.

This collection is a must buy this spring, available now from M&S stores and online too. Prices start from £5.
