When you think of Liz Earle undoubtedly Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish springs to mind? Well the brand also do make-up and let me tell you that it is stellar, the S/S'14 collection is small in size but each product packs a punch...
First up we have Liz Earle's Radiant Glow Bronzer which retails for £19.50, first of all I should state that is much larger than I anticipated it to be (10g) and that it is the perfect way to shake up your current make-up routine without spending big bucks. The Liz Earle Radiant Glow Bronzer features four large segments of colour which can be used individually with ease due to their size or swirled together to create a warm, shimmering golden bronze. Within this palette - yes palette you have essentially four bronzer, one that can be used as a highlighter, one that you can contour with and all of which can be used as eyeshadows! The texture of Liz Earle Radiant Glow Bronzer is soft and rather pigmented, it is a little prone to fall out but it does feel lighter than air on the skin and isn't prone to caking. If you combine all four shades the end result is a mid-toned medium shimmering bronze that should suit most light - medium complexions as a bronzer and will be a highlight on deeper skin tones. Yes it is shimmer based but I don't find it highlights imperfections, rather it provides a light and healthy glow to the skin. You could easily pack this in your summer suitcase and eliminate the need for lugging around a separate bronzer, highlighter, contour shade and neutral eyeshadows all in one go. Savvy indeed.
It is very seldom that I get excited about nail polish but the two shades that make up the Liz Earle S/S collection made me a little weak in the knees. A stormy grey hue and a bright almost neon coral that will look great with a tan - the two new Liz Earle Strengthening Nail Colours are a Spring/Summer must have! My personal favourite is Liz Earle Awakening - a bright peachy pink come coral shade that tinkers on the neon side, the photos do not do this shade justice, it truly is a show stopper. Two quick coats that dry quickly and to a high sheen what is not to like? Oh and it isn't prone to chipping either and the formulation has been created to protect and strength the nails. Annoyingly while taking my photos I dropped Moonlight so I haven't been able to wear this grey toned baby blue that is perfect for Spring or those who prefer muted shades. Blues can be tricky to pull off but this cool toned light grey blue should suit most.
It just goes to show that there is so much more to Liz Earle than cleansers huh?
