The other day I renewed my subscription to Vogue and because I did it through a different company I got a free gift! When I heard it was Liz Earle I was so excited. I used to use their excellent quality skincare all the time and I’ve always hugely respected and admired the brands ethics and principles. Naturally active, against animal testing or using animal products etcetera.
I had never tried their make up though so was eager to open my present! I was sent the Sheer lip gloss in Fuscia and Eye Pencil in black. The packaging was simple in keeping with the brand, but a navy blue instead ofthe light minty green we usually know the brand for.
First of all the lip gloss. Excuse the photo, I’m still getting used to my camera.
I very rarely wear gloss. I’m much more of a lipstick kind of girl, so immediately I thought it was just another freebie that would be shoved to the back of the dressing table drawer. When I tried it on though I was pleasantly surprised, it looks quite natural and isn’t greasy at all. It’s also enriched with avocado oil and shea butter which I love. If I were to pick a lipgloss it would be something along the lines of this. The colour was a little too pink for me unfortunately so it’s not something I see myself wearing a lot, especially this Autumn. However, next summer when I have a bit of a glow I may give it another try, if my sister doesn’t nab it first. Usually this costs £13.50 which is a little too high for me. If I was a lipgloss devotee and found my perfect colour it wouldn’t be a problem but I’d rather save my pennies and try their lipstick.
Next up the Eye Pencil
I have huge faith in this range though so as soon as possible I’ll be trying their brow pencil and mascara. I’ll let you know.
