Well it’s been a long wait for Liz Earle fans but at long last the colour cosmetics line has launched and I have to say a glance at the collection online and I can see the collection looks to be well placed among the brands line of products.
I was sent a couple of items to try out and in with them was the above little “Shade Selector” which reveals a palette of berries and neutrals, just what I expected from the brand, not very exciting colour wise but very in keeping with the whole brand and also bear in mind that the collection is known as the Colour Capsule Collection which is carefully edited to give you natural looking make up that works in harmony with the skin care line and aims to enhance your naturally attractive features rather than mask them.
The packaging is simple, clear and stylish.
The products I received are the Sheer Lip Gloss in Cherry and the Perfect Fix Concealer in Shade 2.
The Pefect Fix concealer seems excellent. It covers minor blemishes and dark circles with ease and has a light easy to blend texture, it doesn’t sit in my fine lines and doesn’t look or feel heavy…alas Shade 2 is slightly too dark for me so I can’t get as much use from it as I’d like. It is only slightly dark but I feel Shade 1 would probably suit me better. It comes in 7 shades and sells for £13.50 which I’d happily pay for this product.
Then there’s the Sheer Lip Gloss in Cherry. Shea Butter, avocado oil, just a hint of colour and soft lips. It’s a nice product, its not very exciting, but it is nice. There are 12 shades at £13.50 and they are the only lip product currently on offer in the Colour Capsule Collection. Certainly, again in keeping with my whole perception of the brand. Oh should also mention, not sticky!
So nice, but safe, offerings from the brand which I’m sure is going to be extremely popular indeed as it’s a really crowd pleasing collection and reasonably priced and in my experience, very nice quality indeed. I’ve got my eye on the cream blushers!
You can find the range on the Liz Earle website.
