I was going through my make up bag a few days ago and noticed something very interesting: seems the only face make up products I have in there are from Liz Earle. It took me by surprise as I do use a variety of powders and foundations, but, for some reason, when on the go, I use Liz Earle. Okay, it is clear what that 'some reason' is: the Liz Earle face make up is simply wonderful and this is why I'm going to introduce each of the four products I've got on Beauty Boudoir.
here) I have mentioned on here before (link). I still love it as much as I did back in November. It is such a lightweight product that covers really well and looks invisible on my face. It makes me look more radiant, more healthy, and its satiny finish seems to work well on my somewhat oily skin. I do need to powder once or twice throughout the day, but this isn't a problem at all. Signature Foundation is probably the only non-mattifying face make up product I have in my collection - I don't do dewy with ease - yet I seem to reach for it more than the other products. If you're after a medium coverage foundation with a very natural, slightly brightening finish (well, who wouldn't want to look natural?) then this is worth checking out.
here) is the first powder foundation I have tried and liked. I generally just don't get on with them - most feel/are cakey and hard to blend and don't offer as much coverage as I'd like. This one's different - it gives a matte finish that isn't too flat, covers all my imperfections and, again, feels very light on my skin. The lasting power is good, too, and I usually get 5-6 hours out of this before I need to touch up. I use this product on and off and the only reason I don't reach for this on a daily basis is: I am still not totally used to powder foundations. Having said that, when and if I know I'll have a long and busy day, this is my first choice. Its mattifying properties ensure I stay shine free for hours and I have never noticed any significant fading. Fab product for those with oily skin!
here) is probably my favourite out of the four featured on here today. I don't think I could live without this loose powder anymore! I don't usually get excited by powders - I use them to mattify and fix my make up and, hey, most do their job quite okay. This, however, gives me such long lasting results, looks totally invisible yet evens out and smooths... It is an ideal setting powder that ensures my face will stay shine free for hours. It is also ideal because I can never tell I'm actually wearing powder on top of my foundation - the finish is matte yet luminous. I really really love this and will be re-purchasing it 100%.
here) is a perfect compact. It does everything a pressed powder should do: mattifies, smooths and evens out skin tone. Like the loose powder, it also feels and looks invisible and its texture is very very fine (think they call it 'micro fine'). I use this powder in the lightest shade - Sheer Porcelain - which is ideal for my NC15 skin.
The only Liz Earle face make up product I haven't got on with is their Sheer Skin Tint. I found it didn't do much for my oily skin and I had to constantly powder and blot my face. But hey, let's not dwell on the negatives! These four mentioned on here today are all amazing and I'd recommend them to absolutely anyone and everyone looking for new base products.
