Liz Earle Loving
Liz Earle is one of those beauty brands that has proven itself as one of the most reliable on the UK highstreet right now. I was first introduced to the brand by bloggers Sprinkleofglitter and Zoella, and their prolific use of the cult ‘Hot cloth cleanser’ and since then, I have found myself again and again turning back to this brand and falling in love with every product I buy –
The Botanical Shine shampoo
This is an amazing shampoo. For me, this stuff is well worth the price tag. It leaves my hair feeling shiny, healthy and strong (considering I have obliterated it with multiple bleach jobs I appreciate this more than most). This shampoo also smells amazing, doesn’t contain any nasties AND it works on all hair types! The accompanying conditioner is also equally fab and doesn’t leave you with heavy hair. The only real downside to this product that I can see is that if you need to deep clean your hair, for example to get out paint or the like, this shampoo is sometimes a bit too gentle for heavy duty washing.

The Signature foundation
Buy this, thank me later.
In my extensive experience of trying to find a foundation that will 1) not leave me looking as shiny as a glitterball. 2) not react to my sensitive skin (looking at you Rimmel). 3) not be far to orange for my pale skin or 4) leave me a flawless finish. I have thus far failed. Few foundations on the market fit any of these necessities let alone all 4, however, this foundation is a very good contender. Apart from an excessive bit of shine (more my fault than the foundations, I should wear primer more often) the Signature Foundation is a winner. Special commendation had to be paid to the Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint, another perfect summer product, just a tad less coverage. Compared to other foundations in this one’s price range, of which there are many, this one absolutely comes out on top!

The Healthy Glow Cream Blush
These crème blushes are a really lovely consistency, which glides onto your foundation without smudging it. This blush also doesn’t clump on your cheeks or leave you with patchy marks, and the colour Nude 03 is the perfect rosy glow on pale skin.

The Eye pencil
Eyeliner and me are not friends, we’re barely acquaintances! It smudges, I rub my eyes, I look like a panda, I throw it out. It’s a vicious circle. This eyeline isn’t perfect, I’m still waiting on the dream pencil, but it does a bloody good job and for that I am eternally grateful. The problem for me is that I find that eyeliners don’t transfer onto my waterline well, I spend a good amount of time scraping away until I’m crying anyway. However, the colour pay off from this one is amazing, one slick of it under each eye gives a strong black line that stays for a long time. For the price, go here not M.A.C.

Botanical Essence No.100 Eau de Parfum
I love floral perfumes, give me a Jo Malone or a Marc Jacobs Daisy any day! This perfume is the perfect blend of floral without any of the sickly-sweet undertones you normally find! Special congratulations also must be made to whoever designed the bottle, lid, and box that this comes it. The aesthetically pleasing exterior combines with the functional magnetic box and the east to use lid are all sublime. I’ve never wanted to use a bottle more!
