As many of you may know I am a massive fan of Liz Earle products and have reviewed many products in their skin/body range. I find everything I’ve used to be of the highest quality and many products I have repurchased so I can still use on a day to day basis.
I was extremely lucky to be sent a few items from the Liz Earle Colour Range a couple of months back well before its launch. In those 2 months I have used the product I was sent regularly, so I could give you an honest opinion of them along with an introduction to the products in the range. I am also including products in the range I haven’t tried so you can see a full list of what will be in the new collection.
Here’s a few words from the amazing Liz Earle about the new range…
“Approachable, natural-looking beauty is our priority and our aim is to help women feel confident about how they look – helping our customers achieve natural, beautiful-looking skin, simply and without fuss every day.
Liz Earle Colour is the natural next step for us – the finishing touch. It’s make up that really performs, it works in harmony with and delivers the same dependable results as Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare and always looks natural, enhancing rather than masking the skin whatever your age, skintone or type or stage of life.”
Liz Earle, Co-founder
Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint
‘Rich, creamy and lightweight, leaving all skin types naturally dewy, even and radiant. It makes you look like you have great skin, not great make up.’
This is probably my most favourite product in the range. I have worn the Sheer Skin Tint regularly as I love the texture and finish. It was mentioned in my March Favourites and also on FOTD: ‘No Makeup’ Makeup – somewhat guiltily may I add as it was pre-launch!
The Sheer Skin Tint is your skin, but better. Although a light coverage I still find it hides much of my pigmentation on my face and even some blemishes. The dewy finish is just right and doesn’t leave you shiny, but glowing and natural. I can see this product being a regular for a long time to come, especially during summer when I prefer a lighter more natural coverage (It also contains an SPF 15).
With regards to skin sensitivity, I’ve been having a lot of trouble with skin bases/foundations recently but can say from the first time I used this I have had no irritation nor breakouts from it being a new product.
Shade Beige 02
The Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint is available in 4 shades and cots £21 for 40ml (1.3 fl.oz)
Liz Earle Perfect Fix Concealer
Take years off your appearance. Hides all sorts of imperfections, evens skin tone and brightens eyes.
Our blendable concealer is really versatile. Rich pigments cover skin imperfections while a lightweight finish allows wear underneath eyes and as an eye base too.
Available in 7 Shades and costs £13.50 for 2g (0.07 oz)
*This is a product I would definitely like to try after my thoughts of the Light Reflecting Concealer. I feel this would be idea for covering blemishes and heavier pigmentation the Sheer Skin Tint doesn’t cover.*
Liz Earle Light Reflecting Concealer
‘This is the ultimate, radiance-enhancing essential. Subtly helps to brighten under-eye dark circles and highlights the face to give amazing radiance and bounce light wherever it touches.’
I struggle with many concealers, even the lighter ones – due to eczema and psoriasis under my eyes there is some scaring there which means the skin is uneven and appears more ‘cracked’ in appearance than it is. The Light Reflecting Concealer is so light that it just glides upon your skin. The coverage is really good even with the formula being so light and silky. Being a light reflecting concealer it instantly brightens your eyes and is great to also use on your brows, cupids bow and as a highlight on your cheeks.
I have tried applying the concealer with a brush and also a patting motion with my fingers. In both cases I find the finish to be amazing and it also lasts throughout the day too. I wear this daily and will definitely be purchasing another one as I get a perfect finish with no caking that lasts.
Shade Medium 02
Liz Earle Light Reflecting Concealer comes in 4 shades and is £13.50 for 1.5ml (0.05 fl.oz)
Natural Finish Loose Powder
‘Our velvety soft, lightweight formula can be worn alone or over make up to give a smooth, silky, matte finish to the skin.’
I don’t powder everyday less I am out and want my make up to last me throughout without having to retouch up. My main problems with powder are many are too heavy and the matt finishes can leave me looking too ‘flat’. My opinion of powders changed after using the Natural Finish Loose Powder.
This sheer powder gives great coverage whether using on its own or on top of your liquid foundation. I was impressed with the matt finish, it got rid of shine on my t-zone, held my make up all day but didn’t leave me looking ‘flat’, instead I had a healthy finish which I really liked. The powder wasn’t too heavy either which impressed me, especially with the good coverage I felt I achieved with it.
Being a loose powder I feel you have more control over application, especially when it comes to applying too much, or just wanting a lighter finish.I managed to achieve both with this powder, its easily layered. I applied mine with the large powder brush from the Liz Earle Colour Range (It was almost mentioned in my March Favourites).
Natural Beige 02
Liz Earle Natural Finish Loose Powder is available in 3 Shades and costs £19.50 for 12g (0.04 oz)
Liz Earle Healthy Glow Cream Blush
‘Glides on smoothly to leave cheeks with a soft, healthy-looking glow. Looks incredible smoothed onto the lips for a beautiful natural lip look. Another great multi-tasker. ‘
I am completely in love with these blushers! I was sent 2 samples; Nude and Rose. Nude is a more natural, tanned cream blusher and Rose is a warm, pink toned cream blusher. Both are very easily blended into your skin and can be applied as heavily, or lightly as you chose. You can easily build them up by laying which I loved, meaning its easy to go from a day to night look by just applying a little more!
I also loved the finishes of these products – I own so many matt blushers and even some of my cream blushers give a more matt finish. Yet with the Healthy Glow Cream Blush you get exactly that, a gorgeous glowing finish without shimmer and sparkles. Its a healthy flush and looks extremely natural.
The images of these were taken over a month ago and with the Nude cream blush I have already hit pan! I will definitely be repurchasing this as its become a massive favourite of mine and more than worth its weight in gold!

Liz Earle Healthy Glow Cream Blush is available in 7 shades and costs £16.50 for 2g (0.07 oz)
Healthy Glow Powder Blush
Light and easy to blend, with micronized pigments, making it easy to build colour. The texture and feel of this blush is beautifully soft, feeling really is believing.
Our silky formula gives a soft, natural glow without being too shimmery, so it works beautifully on all ages.
Liz Earle Healthy Glow Powder Blush is available in 7 shares and costs £16.50 for 6g (0.2oz)
Liz Earle Natural Glow Bronzer
Sheer and buildable to brighten skin with a radiant, sun-kissed glow.
Many bronzers are either too matte
or too shimmery, this strikes a balance. Its sheer-yet-buildable formula means it’s mistake-proof too.
Liz Earle Natural Glow Bronzer is available in 1 shade and costs £19.50 for 10g (0.03g)
Liz Earle Sheer Lip Gloss
‘Non-sticky and lightweight with added botanicals. Every shade is wearable, and feels beautifully soft too. ‘
I was sent 2 shades of the Sheer Lip Gloss to share with you, Petal and Cherry. Both shades are barely there on your lips, yet give them a hint of colour and shine which is both natural and gorgeous. I have worn both many times on their own and over lipsticks to give them a bit of pizzazz and received many compliments from people about them.
Liz Earle Petal Sheer Lip Gloss
Petal is a sheer pale pink gloss with a hint of shimmer. Super pretty on your lips and also with a mild fruity scent, this is probably my favourite of the 2 glosses.
Liz Earle Cherry Sheer Lip glos
Cherry is a sheer red toned gloss, this is a blue toned red and not an orange red so very flattering on everyone. There is a slight sparkle to this but its minimal and hardly noticeable on the lips. This also has a sweet fruity fragrance which I really love.
They are non-sticky and don’t feel greasy at all on the lips. Although very sheer I don’t find them transfer as much as some I’ve tried and reapplying them is easy with the sponge applicator. I have always preferred glosses and stains over lipsticks and these 2 I was impressed with. I can’t wait to see what other shades are in the range and am sure if there’s a good nude there I’ll be purchasing that too!
Liz Earle Sheer Gloss – Petal (Left) and Cherry (Right) Swatch
Liz Earle Sheer Lip Gloss is available in 12 shades and costs £13.50 for 5ml (0.16 fl.oz)
Liz Earle Eye Pencil
‘Rich pigments glide on smoothly to line, define, and blend over eyelids. The silky waxes of our eye pencils won’t drag the skin, making application really easy. ‘
I was sent all 3 of the Eye Pencils in the range; Golden Bronze (A brown toned golden shade), Dark Brown and Black. At first I found them a little ‘hard’ on the eyes. But as long as you warm them first on the back of your hand they soften nicely. These liners are great for lining eyes although are not waterproof. I liked to smudge the along my upper and lower lash line. I find they don’t transfer and last quite well too.
I also found the Dark Brown pencil was also great on my brows if used sparingly and blended out gave them a more fuller look that still looked natural.
I hope they release more colours in the range and I’d be interested in trying other shades if they do.
Golden Bronze, Dark Brown and Black (Top to Bottom)
Liz Earle Eye Pencils are available in the 3 shades as shown above and cost £11.00 for 1g (0.03oz)
Lash Care Intensifying Mascara Base
‘For luscious lashes, one coat boosts the effect of your mascara. Natural oils also help to protect and condition lashes.
You can use a bit on your brows to tame them, as it dries to a translucent finish. It’s a real show off! ‘
I’ve tried a few mascara bases in the past but always had problems with them being either heavily perfumed and making my eyes water or the formula didn’t agree with my eyes and left them itchy. The Liz Earle Lash Care Intensifying Mascara Base didn’t cause either of the 2 reactions on my eyes.
The great thing is you can actually wear it without mascara over the top as the white formula dries to almost clear and is quite conditioning on your lashes too I found. But if you are like me and love your mascara to give you volume and length then this product could be for you.
The lash base is designed to be worn under your mascara like a ‘primer’ coat if you like. Just apply one coat and allow this too dry. You will notice already your lashes have length and more volume. Then apply your mascara over the top; this adds the colour to the lashes but also more volume and length. Leaving you with gorgeous long voluminous lashes.
I know many worry about these lash base products and feel that their lashes may be clumpy if they apply this under their normal mascara; so far I have used this both with the Liz Earle Definition Smudge Proof Mascara and 2 other different brands and did not get any clumping at all. The brush on the Lash Base is a nice medium sizes bristle brush so you get good definition from root to tip. There wasn’t any flaking, smudging or panda eyes either so I feel in some cases it helped make my mascara last longer.

Liz Earle Lash Definition Smudgeproof Mascara
‘Our unique, lightweight mascara is easy to use and glides on smoothly, to perfectly define each lash. The specially designed brush allows you to make the most of even the shortest lashes.’
I love mascara and I feel a bit like a connoisseur when it comes to them, mainly as I have so many – it really is an addiction! I want long lashes, with volume, no clumping, no smudging or panda eyes and I want it to last all day (A tall order I know), I got just that with the Liz Earle Lash Definition Smudgeproof Mascara.
The formula does have a light scent too it, but I didn’t find this caused any problems with my eyes with irritation or making them watery. The formula isn’t too thick either, so doesn’t go on clumpy at all which I loved, it also meant you weren’t spending time wiping product from your brush before using it on your lashes.
Lash Definition is really good for layering too, I am a 2 coat girl generally and like my lashes too look full. I found with 1 coat they look long and defined but in a natural way – however 2 coats and I was a very happy girl. My lashes looked long and had volume at the roots without being clumpy. I also found I didn’t need to use a lash comb at all too separate the lashes – something I often find I need to do when I first use a new mascara.
Lash Definition Smudgeproof mascara lasted on my lashes all day, I didn’t have any flaking or smudging and it meant 8 hours after application my lashes were looking as good as they did first thing in the morning.
This black mascara is a nice true black and as you can see from the images really does make your lashes look great!
Liz Earle Lash Definition Smudgeproof Mascara applied to my lashes – 2 coats
Liz Earle Lash Definition Smudgeproof Mascara is available in 2 shade and costs £14.50 for for 8m (0.27 fl.oz)
So, that concludes my review of the new Liz Earle Colour Range which is now available online through Liz Earle. I was really impressed, some really great products and ones I can see me purchasing again and again!
