Liz Earle Healthy Glow Powder Blush & Liz Earle Natural Glow Bronzer...

Excitingly, I'm a guest blogger on Frills n Spills today!



Check it out on Maria's blog here or here it is below...


I love Liz Earle skincare, it’s perfect for my super-sensitive skin, so like most other bloggers I was so excited to hear they have a new makeup range. Here are my reviews of two products, the Healthy Glow Powder Blush and the Natural Glow Bronzer.



Liz Earle Healthy Glow Powder Blush

 

 
The colour I am reviewing is called Peony and it’s a lovely raspberry pink which is great for darker skin tones, but I think it looks lovely on pale skin tones too, a great all-rounder.

 
 
 
The packaging is very sleek and minimalist, a deep blue compact which has subtle glitter in, and the top features a small mirror which is handy for if you’re travelling and haven’t got anything to look in.


The powder is super-soft and very finely milled


Top stripe – applied with blusher brush, Bottom stripe – applied with finger
And gives huge colour payoff


This means the colour is very strong if it isn’t carefully applied, but once you get used to it, it gives a lovely healthy flush and is easily spread out. Overall, although I am a high-street make-up lover and wouldn’t normally dream of paying £16.50 for a blusher, I admit that I don’t want to give this blusher up!

 
Product – 8.5/10. Score could be improved if the price was cheaper!




Liz Earle Natural Glow Bronzer

Being the pale person I am, in the summer I love bronzer! However I really hate those ones with flecks of glitter in, you know the ones that make you look like some sort of crazed disco chick who got lost in an office. Another draw-back of the ones without glitter in though are that they can leave your skin looking “muddy” and dirty (not sure why...) so I tend to use Benefit’s Hoola


 
This bronzer by Liz Earle is a very fine pressed powder which doesn’t look very dark compared to many other bronzers but don’t let that deceive you.


Again, the compact is a sleek blue sheen with a mirror. It’s bigger than the blusher and perfect for popping in your handbag for after work touch-ups. Actually, it would probably be quite hard to tell your products apart if you owned lots of Liz Earle makeup!

 
The powder is again a lovely texture but spreads very well. The colour payoff is very pale however, but is easily built up.


You can’t see it spread out ,but you can barely see a line created with my finger at the bottom. However with a build up and a good kabuki brush it gives a lovely colour!

You can see it gives a lovely natural colour, but this is about 4 layers to demonstrate the colour! It’s perfect for very pale girls or people who want a subtle wash of colour. I absolutely love it, I don’t look muddy or dirty, but have a healthy “week in Spain” glow. It’s brilliant for sensitive skinned girls like me who don’t want to put fake tan on their faces in case we get spots! The bronzer is cheaper than Benefit Hoola at £19.50 and I would definitely purchase this again. It’s potentially a pale girl’s perfect bronzer!

Rating – 9.5/10 – I don’t feel I could give a 10, because one day there might be something better... but until then this is amazing!
