Relatively new to the makeup scene (I think the line launched around May 2012), I can't say the imagery/descriptions of the Liz Earle range really caught my attention and instead its been more of a slow burner whereby I've picked up bits and pieces here and there.
As you'd expect
from the Liz Earle brand the colour palette is very much about natural,
east to wear shades. I think they have priced themselves well (mid-end,
similar to MAC pricing). Packaging is functional and simplistic.
The shadows (£13.50 each) tend to have a matte or slightly shimmery
finish. The shimmers have a soft, creamy feel and better pigment,
whereas I find the mattes dryer in feel and less pigmented however both
finishes apply and blend well.
Golden sand is a warm yellowed beige with slight shimmer, it makes a
nice lid wash for a clean, refreshed look. I think this would work best on
those who suit warmer toned shades.
Taupe is a matte cool toned taupe. I
actually think very few brands can produce actual cool toned matte taupes, so this is a
Signature Lip Colour in Azalea (£14) is a soft coral. The lipstick feels
quite balm like and is comfortable.
The Blend & Contour Brush (£12.50) has a soft long sculpted head. It
picks up just the right amount of colour and blends in extremely well
with a delicate touch so as not to displace product. The brush has a
tendency to fluff out quite a bit after washing so its worth re-shaping
Though the range doesn't give me that giddy glee like some of my favourite brands, I do think it has definite merits and I will continue to
purchase more from the line. Overall quality is good and the colours
and ease of application make this a very no fuss, mistake proof,
