Liz Earle Creme Blush in Coral

After being rather disappointed with skincare queen, Liz Earle's first foray into the beauty world with her Sheer Skin Tint last year, I had mixed feelings about the release of her full makeup collection. It hit stores a couple of months ago now and I finally got the chance to try a few bits this week. Straight off the bat I have to say I was impressed, and a little in love with the accompanying colour chart.
Liz Earle products sell well online so I love the idea of having a full colour chart, complete with spaces to swatch your current colours for comparison! I'm not entirely sure how accurate the colour swatches are, but either way I though this was a nice idea and I had fun playing around with it.
The products also took me a little by surprise. I've only tried a couple of bits but I was seriously impressed by the creme blush in Coral. It's smooth, creamy and blends easily. It's nicely pigmented and looks great on the lips as well as the cheeks. It's on the pink-ier side of coral, so more flattering than some and easy to wear.
The formulation reminds me, almost exactly, of the Stila Convertible Colours (which I also love). You get 2g of product for £16.50 which I thought was pretty reasonable until I checked the packaging of my Stila product... of which you get 4.5g for £16. So not the greatest value for money product on the market, but the quality is great and I love the super-compact packaging (no wasted plastic here!)
A good first impression from Liz Earle Colour... I'm excited to try out more products from this line, and to see how it expands in the future. The initial selection is designed as a 'capsule collection' with definite room for expansion in the future, so watch this space.

Have any of you tried Liz Earle's new makeup products? Thoughts?!

  2. I had the Liz earl cream blush, I love it to death, but feel it's rather expensize for the price/size. You get a great quality product though, so does that contemplate it?

  4. that looks really great.I need to wear powder, be it loose powder to set my foundation or mineral foundation as liquid make up doesn't blend well into my skin it just sits on top and smudges away so easy, could you wear this with a powder i find when i put my moon beam highlighter on if i don't dab it smudges.how would you apply this blush? x

  18. The colour wheel looks so cool, but if I was going to stray away from my Illamasqua cream blushes it would be straight into the arms of Stila :') Laura x

  26. Are Liz Earle products only sold online? I've bought quite a few things from there before but wondered if they were available in any stores?

  27. Call me sad, but I was so excited to see this post pop up on my Bloglovin' feed! I know I'm definitely not the only one who is a fan of Liz Earle skincare, but I think the Sheer Skin Tint they do is brilliant, so the latest additions to their makeup line has been a long time coming! The blushes are definitely what I have been most looking forward to, and this is an absolutely gorgeous colour. I suppose the price is to be expected really, but if I'm honest, up until now, I have never minded paying for Liz Earle products, as I think they are worth the money. Hope this will be the same!
