Liz Earle does make up! Did you know? I kinda knew but I’ve only just recently had the chance to try some of it out, and it’s pretty good stuff.
The four products I tried are really up my street – very easy to use, no fuss, natural, easy going make up. They are the Skin Tint, Light Reflecting Concealer and Healthy Glow Cream Blush.
Here they are; Skin Tint Beach 03 (matches my medium warm NC35 skintone really well), Concealer in Medium 02 (a good match, no ridiculous racoon eyes) and cream clusters in Camellia 01, a light pink and Blossom 02 which is more of a soft rose.
Sheer Skin Tint (SPF15) comes in 4 shades (£22.50). I guess a skin tint is something like a tinted moisturiser – this one has quite a thickish cream texture, thicker than say, MAC Face and Body or other tinted moisturisers or BB Creams so it reminds me more of a liquid foundation. The coverage is excellent and it leaves the skin with a nice glow, but not too much (such as my Estee Lauder EE cream which is great but leaves me looking a bit sweaty).
My shade 03 Beach I thought would be too dark but it blended nicely and didn’t oxidise. Actually one of the better skin tints/tinted moisturisers I’ve used in a while. I don’t use a brush with it, I just rub it in with my hands.
The Light Reflecting Concealer for the under eye area (£15.50) comes in 3 shades, light, medium and medium-dark. A very nice thin texture for under the eyes, but effective enough to really brighten. Use sparingly. Doesn’t look too white or racoon like at all – and I have finished all of this (perhaps a bit too quickly, it lasted me 6 weeks!) and I have never finished a Touche Eclat so this is a pretty effective and easy to use under eye brightener. Also doesn’t dry into a cakey finish which is what I can’t stand with these kinds of under eye concealers.
Cream Blushes (£16.50 each) come in 7 shades. I love dual use cream blushers and these are both super pretty and easy to wear. They blend well and set to a slightly powdery finish and add glow. I like Blossom the most of the two, Camelia is a little light for me, better for someone with fair skin but it worked quite well as a nude pink on my lips.
With the foundation, concealer and blush:
Liz Early colour make up is great for people who already love her skincare and people who like the more natural wearable look (ie. Bobbi Brown fans). I’d love to see her expand the range!
