Have you heard of Liz Earle? If you haven't .......... why not? ;)
Liz Earle is a UK based natural skincare brand, I first discovered them from the joys of QVC and fell head over heels in love with their most famous product, cleanse and polish, the first and in my opinion the best hot cloth cleanser.
The skincare line is phenomenal, it covers the basics brilliantly with cleanser, toner and moisturiser and I adore their exfoliator and lovely luxurious masks.
The company has branched out further with a full body care line including body, hand and foot care products and a delicious perfume was also added to the line.
The most recent product added to the product line was called Sheer skin tint, basically a tinted moisturiser but it was a stand alone product, nothing else "makeup" wise was released ........ until now :)
I got an email a few weeks ago introducing "Liz Earle Colour" and I squeed with excitement, what more could I want, one of my most favourite skincare lines releasing a makeup line - perfect!
I haven't actually bought anything yet, I was planning on visiting a Liz Earle stockist to swatch and peruse before purchasing, but a few bits and pieces have definitely caught my eye so far:
Firstly the natural glow bronzer, I'm a bronzer crazed loony, I love the stuff for a lovely glow without any need for actual sun :) this one is only available in one shade "bronze" but it doesn't look too dark or scary and the website states "minimal shimmer" I'll have to judge that for myself on swatching but it sounds and looks like a winner that needs to jump right into my makeup collection.
Secondly the healthy glow cream blush. I love a good cream blusher and I'm always on the look out for the perfect texture with both blendability and staying power. This one is available in 7 shades from nude to pink and coral so I'm certain one of those will be able to tempt me ........ maybe 2 ;)
Lastly the sheer lip gloss. I'm not normally a lip gloss girl, I love my lipstick but I'm keen to try this out. I think it's because Liz Earle started as a skincare line, I'm thinking these glosses will be super moisturising and easy to wear. The website states they are enriched with avocado and Shea butter which sound good to me, and with 12 gorgeous shades to choose from I'm sure I'll find a winner.
There are plenty of other bits and bobs to tantalise your taste buds - stick concealer, loose powder, powder blush, mascara, eye pencils and even a few brushes. If you want to have a look for yourself, click here and have a browse.
The prices seem to coincide with the likes of MAC, £19.50 for the bronzer, £16.50 for the cream blush and £13.50 for the sheer lip gloss. I'm happy to spend that if the product is genuinely worth it and my experience with Liz Earle thus far has not given me any reason to doubt that the makeup line will be amazing.
I can't wait to get my hands on a few bits and pieces and I'll be sure to let you know when I do and provide my usual swatches. I've got high hopes for this line and I'm keeping everything crossed that they do well and expand the product range with more colours and maybe even some actual foundations.
Is this a brand you know and love, have you tried anything from the colour range? Please let me know in the comments below if you've ever dabbled with Liz Earle and your thoughts :)
Take care as always and love to all xox
