Review: Liz Earle Healthy Glow Powder Blush in Nude 03

When I didn't get on with Liz Earle's Sheer Skin Tint, I was absolutely gutted. I had liked the skincare range and had high hopes for her make-up line, and felt like we just weren't seeing eye to eye. But after a temporary "break up" we are back together in the form of a firm blush bond..


I was ecstatic when this came through my post, as many bloggers have been singing the praises about this blusher in various colours. I've always looked for a nice nude blush too, so I was even more excited to try Nude!



The Shade..

I couldn't possibly put the beauty of this shade in words. In the pan, it's like a really muted peach, but it's a true nude with a mix of peach, pink and beige, and your skin will pick up some shades more than others depending on your skintone. On my warm-toned skin, it pulls slightly pinker than what you seen in the pan (the camera didn't seem to pick it up well either, but you can kinda see it around the edges!). And oh my - is it a stunning shade!

This truly nude and 'customised' nature makes your skin look so naturally healthy and glowing - they could not have named the product better! It's also a perfect shade for school, work or interviews for a toned-down look, or even nights out when you're playing up your eyes.


What makes it even more natural is the finish, which is matte but with a natural sheen - again, exactly what the product name impliesOn days where I'm quite dehydrated, I find it pulls slightly too matte and can appear dull. So I usually use it on my more normal or slightly oilier days, or stipple on some MAC Fix+ to really pull on that natural glow!

The Formula..

The formula is incredibly easy to use. It may feel slightly powdery at first, but I've never really noticed any fall-out on my cheeks at all. The consistency is really soft, but it takes a bit of blending for that soft look! The pigmentation is at a perfect level where you aren't scrubbing the product on, but you also aren't frying your brain cells trying to get a natural application.

The Packaging..

The packaging is actually one of my favourite parts about this product, and a huge part of what drew me to it (yes yes, superficial, I know!). The patent-pending Liz Earle navy with blue speckles is just so classy but unique from the classic black, and the small size and incredibly slim compact is perfect for storage and on the go. You can also tell it's very sturdy and high quality. And since any company that bothers to put a mirror in all compacts gets a high-five from me - Liz Earle is sufficiently high-fived up.


This product does what exactly what it says on the tin, and does it so well - it gives you a "healthy glow" with the lovely finish as well as this shade in particular.

The universality and glow that Nude gives really makes it one that'll benefit anyone's collection! I seriously can't believe how naturally glowy it makes my skin look, and I absolutely love it! I genuinely couldn't rave about this blusher enough, and don't feel my words do it justice.

This week sees the launch and completion of Liz Earle's colour range - including a foundation! I'm too excited!

  4. I've been seeing a lot of Liz Earle reviews lately and I have to say i've never been quite so tempted. This blush looks lovely, very natural. I'd be afraid it might not show up on my skin but...hnng. It might be worth the risk.

    1. It's super natural indeed! It's nicely pigmented so I think it will show up on anyone, but it might be worth tweeting the Liz Earle team to be sure if you can't swatch in store :)

  5. The shade looks amazing on you girl! I've heard great things about Liz earle's makeup line.. Gotta get my hands on some.. For nude natural blush, I love my D&G Blush in Caramel.. It's so smooth and gives such a wonderful warmth to the skin that you don't even need to apply bronzer with it..
