Review: Liz Earle Signature Eye Colour in Forest and Blend & Contour Brush

Monday, 24 September 2012


Earlier this month I reviewed Liz Earle's Lash Definition Smudgeproof Mascara (link) which has been my current go-to mascara for everyday (especially in this dreary wet weather!).  I'm pleased to say that I've recently added two more Liz Earle make-up items to my morning routine, in the shape of their Signature Eye Colour and their Blend & Contour Brush.


 Liz Earle Blend & Contour Brush (£12.50, link)*

I own quite a lot of make-up brushes and since discovering the likes of Real Techniques and Ecotools, I haven't really been looking at any others.  However, I may have to check out more of these brushes from Liz Earle now!  Their Blend & Contour Brush is just so perfectly crafted and easy to use that its no surprise that it's now sitting in my 'everyday' make-up brushes container.  The 100% cruelty free man-made fibres are super soft and flexible (we're seriously talking Real Techniques type softness here), and the long handle gives you a lot of control when you're blending into that tricky crease area.  I had a feeling that Liz Earle's make-up brushes might be good, but I had no idea they would be this good!
 Liz Earle Signature Eye Colour in Forest (3g, £13.50, link)*

Packaged in their trademark shimmery midnight blue, this slim disc of a compact holds one of the twenty shades that are available in the Signature Eye Colour range.  The formula of this eyeshadow is silky soft, yet it's more solid than most other comparable high-end shadows in that it you don't get a lot of fallout whenever you use it with a brush.   


I was sent the shade Forest which is a gorgeous subtle green shot with gold.  It's absolutely beautiful and a perfect shade to wear for A/W.  I don't have anything like this in my current collection, but have fallen in love with how easy it is to wear.  The shade is very subtle, making it so easy for me to extend out of my usual browns and nudes rut and go for a different look.  It's still happily in the neutral family, but gives me a bit more definition when I want it without being too dark.

I didn't have any issues with creasing either when I wore it for around 8 hours, but would say that if you wanted the colour to look more intense, just layer it over a good eyelid primer and you'll be good to go.

I'll definitely be checking out more of the shades that Liz Earle has to offer and if you're a fellow neutrals fan, you'll love all of the earthy tones as much as I do!


Have you tried anything from Liz Earle's Colour Make-Up Range?

  1. The eyeshadow is gorgeous, I love earthy greens. The brush looks fantastic, like a better version of the mac 217! I like that it is animal friendly too, it always saddens me a bit when brushes aren't, especially in this day and age! x

    1. I agree! I wrote a post last month about how it's so unnecessary for animal hair to be used in brushes these days, just no need when synthetics are so good! http://wewereraisedbywolves.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/beauty-debate-natural-vs-synthetic-make.html x
