Liz Earle have recently expanded on their already impressive make-up collection
and have just launched new cosmetic items including foundation (both powder and liquid form),
lipsticks, eyeshadows and a few other items.
As a huge Liz Earle fan this was exciting news to me and I have been bursting at the seems to share
this product with you but of course had to test it first.

Much like all of the items in the Liz Earle make-up collective the packaging is a deep navy blue,
I read somewhere that the shade of blue packaging is in line to be trademarked?
Anyway the compact is small, round and sturdy and considering it is a plastic compact
it is rather smart and stylish with a good sized mirror housed inside.

"The pigments and varying textures of our gorgeous Signature eye colours are really luxurious. 

They range from beautiful colour true nudes to taupes and charcoals.
I can really rely on our collection of colours to help me create a look for any occasion." - Liz Earle

The Liz Earle eyeshadow line features 20 shades which is impressive by any standard,
all of which are permanent and come in a range of finishes - cream, shimmer and matte.
The shade I have been testing is Chestnut which is officially listed as a "rich, shimmering dark brown"
which I can not argue with at all but truthfully for a shimmer based eyeshadow it isn't quite as shimmery
as you would expect which isn't a criticism at all as some eyeshadow can be too frosty!

The formula of Chestnut is extremely soft to the touch yet well pressed so it doesn't shatter or smash
should you have a heavy hand, the benefit of having such a soft formula is that it applies 
and blends with such ease making it a great choice for those who are just starting out with make-up,
as a side note there is no product fall out what so ever too!
The colour pay off is wonderful, it is well pigmented which is always wonderful with such a rich shade
but you can also blend it out to achieve a sheer wash of colour with ease too.
In terms of wear it lasted a good 9 hours with no signs of fading with a primer.
