Liz Earle healthy glow powder blush and blush brush review



*Healthy glow powder blush | £16.50 | Liz Earle


*Blush brush | £15 | Liz Earle


Makeup is not really what I expected next from Liz Earle.  I know it's been out for quite a while now, but to me the Liz Earle brand will always be about amazing skin care like cleanse and polish, so I think I was worried that I'd be disappointed by the makeup!  

I was sent one of the blushes and a matching brush to try out and was relieved to see they are the same high quality that I've come to expect from Liz Earle.  The blush is very pigmented and will surely last me a very long time as a little goes a very long way with a high colour pay off.  I was sent the perfect shade for my skin tone - a lovely warm peachy pink.  I meant to take a photo of me wearing the blush, but there's just not enough natural light around at the moment for it to show up properly on camera.  I heard another blogger say that these blushes had a bit of an off putting smell to them - maybe they've changed the formula since then, but I can't smell anything at all (and I had a good sniff to make sure!).

If I was going to spend £15+ on a single brush it would usually only be one from MAC, so I do think the price is set a little bit high on these, but the brush does feel very well made and exceptionally soft.  It has very densely packed bristles and is nicely angled and just about the right size for and optimum sweep of flush to the cheeks.  

Have you tried anything from the Liz Earle makeup range?  What would you recommend?
