Liz Earle's make-up range launched to much fanfare last year and continues to go from strength to strength. I've mentioned and raved about a couple of their products such as the amazing Signature Foundation and Lash Definition Mascara in the past, so I was excited to get my hands on a few more pieces to try out.
Liz Earle Healthy Glow Cream Blush in 04 Rose* (2g, £16.50, link)
I can never resist a good cream blush, and Liz Earle's offering to blush fiends everywhere is well worth getting your hands on. Packaged in LE's trademark shimmery, midnight blue plastic casing, the compact also features a mirror and feels sturdy and secure. The blush's formula is so velvety soft and beautifully pigmented; you only need a dab or so on your finger for each cheek (or use it on the lips) and that's enough. Applying it was a breeze with my fingers or you could use something like a stippling brush for the same effect. Blending and sheering it out was also really easy and this shade, Rose, gives the most natural looking flush of pink colour to the cheeks which would suit a range of skintones. It dries to a semi-dewy finish which looks very pretty and certainly lives up to that 'healthy' looking claim as the colour doesn't look matte or flat. I found it stayed put for around 4 hours which is a lot longer than most cream blushes last on me.
Liz Earle Light Reflecting Concealer in 02 Medium* (1.5ml, £15.50, link)
This Light Reflecting Concealer is Liz Earle's answer to that concealer pen from YSL (you guys all know the one!). The packaging is metallic, sleek and features the standard 'turning clicky end' which dispenses the concealer up into the inbuilt brush applicator. I opted for the shade 02 Medium which is a touch lighter than what I was expecting, but is currently working well with my tanless winter complexion and I love how it's a fairly neutral shade with a tiny bit of yellow undertone thrown in for good measure. Coverage is relatively sheer to light, dries evenly and I haven't had any issues with creasing. You can use this as a general highlighter (tops of cheekbones, under brow bones, above the cupid's bow etc) and as a brightening concealer under the eyes. However, if you do the latter, I would recommend applying a separate concealer or ideally a corrector first, and then applying this over the top where it's needed in those darker areas, because I don't think the coverage is thick enough to counteract troublesome dark circles on its own. Use it in the right way and it's a fantastic product to have in your make-up bag.
Liz Earle Signature Lip Colour in Hibiscus* (3.5g, £14, link)
Liz Earle's lipsticks are some of the best I've tried, especially as the colours are all relatively easy to wear thanks to their sheer qualities (but there's still a good color payoff as you can see from the swatch below). Hibiscus is one of the more 'daring' shades in the range as it's a bright, pink-red, but it's still very wearable and an ideal choice for those looking to pick up a new festive shade that isn't too 'in your face'. The formula is moisturising (essential for this time of the year) and beautifully glossy, so it looks very chic on. Love it!
