Review: Liz Earle Healthy Glow Powder Blush in Nude

Liz Earle Healthy Glow Powder Blush in Nude 03 (6g, £16.50, link)*

When it comes to blush, I always opt for ones which will look the most natural.  It's safe to say that I'm not a fan of the bright fuschia pink cheeks look, so when I saw the range of shades in Liz Earle's Healthy Glow Powder Blush line, I knew I had to try one out.


I was kindly sent a Healthy Glow Powder Blush in Nude - which is a subtle rosy apricot shade, suited to light-medium skintones.  Like the rest of the Liz Earle make-up range, it comes packaged in a sleek shimmery midnight blue casing and has a handy mirror inside, making it a great little compact to pop in your handbag.

The formula of these blushers is smooth, light and sheer.  They remind me a lot of MAC's Sheertone Blushers (which I love) and they're certainly comparable in many ways.  Firstly, you get the same amount of buildable coverage with the Liz Earle Healthy Glow ones that you do with MAC's Sheertone blushers, which makes them so easy to apply, especially if you're new to blush.  It would be hard for any beginner to go wrong with these because they start off sheer, and then can be built up if desired.

Secondly, the wear time is pretty much the same too.  The Liz Earle Healthy Glow Powder Blushers last for around 8/9 hours on my oily/combination skin and they carry on staying put through the night with a primer underneath.

I'd certainly recommend Liz Earle's HGP Blushers if you're looking for a natural, everyday, work friendly looking blush that will last all day without needing to reapply.   They currently come in seven beautiful shades to suit all skintones.

Have you tried Liz Earle's Healthy Glow Powder Blushers?  
Do you prefer natural looking blushers or more bright ones?

  1. I love natural blush shades. I always feel a bit self conscious with bright pink cheeks.

  5. This is such a lovely subtle colour. You really can't go wrong with this one. At first I was a little afraid that the colour might be too nude or warm for my fair cool toned skin, but it has enough pink in it to pull this blush off. I usually wear light pink blushes but I might give Nude a go with one of my next LE orders :)

    1. When I first saw it in the pan I was a little worried it was going to be too nude, but it definitely comes off as more of a pinky apricot on the skin :)
