Liz Earle is one of my favourite skincare brands – their Cleanse and Polish has featured on the blog a time or two, and is one of those beauty products that I just can’t bear to be without.The brand branched out into makeup this spring and the beauty bits I’ve tried have been similarly impressive. Made with the same botanical ingredients as the skincare line, these are ridiculously easy to wear and apply. There are no eyeshadows or lipsticks (yet - more on that in a bit!) but cheeks, lips, mascara, eye pencils, brushes and base products are all well covered.
The range is all about easy chic and enhancing what nature gave you – it’s about having a small selection of products you can rely on to make you look great, whatever the occasion. What sets these products aside are the textures and formulations – they’re of exceptional quality so everything applies, blends and wears in a really effortless way. I’ve covered a few pieces on beaut.ie before and was delighted to receive this duo to show you here today.
I’m not big into the bronzed look but, being blessed with a head that is shaped like an orange (that’s a direct quote by the way – thanks mum), I like a little contour. The Liz Earle Natural Glow Bronzer has shimmied straight to the top of the short list of products that I use for the job. It comes in just the one shade which is perfect for my medium skin tone and adds some much needed definition to my hamster cheeks. It’s a flattering, subtle shade with the teeniest amount of shimmer, to add a little touch of sheen.The blushers are also firm favourites. Creamy and finely milled, they’re silky soft and the easiest powders I’ve worked with – the colours are so easy to blend and build up on the skin. This shade, Peony, is described as a soft raspberry that works well on all skin tones. Amazingly pigmented - check out that swatch! - it’s the deepest shade of the available seven, which are all also available in cream formulation. I’ve tried and loved Coral, and have my eye on Nude and Nectar, which also look stunning.
Have you tried anything from the Liz Earle Colour Collection? If not, I suggest you check ‘em out online, or at Wilde & Greene in Milltown, Dublin. And the word on the street is they'll be bringing even more beauty bits our way, with the expansion of the colour collection. I'll bring you more on that when I have it, but for now - do you love a bit of Liz Earle, too? Share your favourite products in the comments!
