Liz Earle Healthy Glow Cream Blush - Review

Bonjour!

I finally got to try some make up from the Liz Earle Colour range - following the recent QVC TSV - about time too!   I do like a bit of a cream blush during warmer weather and now that summer seems to have finally arrived - albeit in a somewhat sporadic fashion - the Liz Earle Healthy Glow Cream Blush in Rose seems ideal.   The Liz Earle website states   "Our creamy blush softly enhances cheeks with a healthy-looking, dewy finish. Enriched with our own natural source vitamin E." 




The blusher comes boxed in a sturdy little compact (which is easy to open!) complete with a handy mirror. Rose is a mid 'fleshy toned' pink which is ideal for adding a natural flush of colour to my old apples! It has a velvety texture in the pan and is easy to blend - not too stiff or sticky and not too 'wet'.  In the above pic. I've swatched on the bottom and blended on the top.  You only need a small amount of the blush as it's really well pigmented but it can be built up for a stronger pop! I apply with my fingers and pat or dab it on (it can also be applied with a brush).  Considering it's a cream formula it lasts really well once on - most of the day in fact and doesn't seem to overly cling onto any spotty/patchy areas on my face as can sometimes be the case with cream blushers I've found.

Here it is 'in situ' (yes I know I'm pulling a stupid face as usual and apologies for the dark circles - I'd been out the night before!). Now although I had a reasonable 'flush' on my cheeks at the time of this pic. for some reason the colour always pales out on camera. Clearly need to adjust my settings - any advice on that welcome!  Anyway hope you can get a vague idea...!



The Liz Earle Healthy Glow Cream Blush costs £16.50/2g here - which is maybe a tad expensive for me as a stand alone product - however I do want to try some of the other blushers in this range (already got my eye on Peony ...!).  All in all though I do think this is a lovely product for summer - gives a healthy 'pinched cheek' glow - ideal over a bit of BB and will be great in my holiday make-up bag!

Have you tried the Liz Earle Healthy Glow Cream Blush - which is your favourite shade?

  3. OMG Jen this looks so much like the NYX cream blush I picked up at IMATS. Just took swatches of it today funnily enough. Think this sort of shade is great for skin tones similar to ours, looks gorgeous on you x
