Review: Liz Earle Signature Foundation

Hey Guys today i have a review its on the Liz Earle signature foundation.
i was kindly sent this to review as you all know i always do a honest review products sent me and also products I've brought. So lets get on to the review....
So i got sent the foundation in the shade 01 porcelain and it is the perfect match for my skin tone. It comes in a gorgeous glass bottle that looks so expensive and has a blue lid with liz Earle wrote on it. its a 25ml and its so all skin types and it also has a pump which is fantastic as you don't waste any of the product.
Like i said this foundation is for all skin types now i have very sensitive skin and i mean sensitive so i was very very surprised that it didn't break me out at all which is always a good thing with my skin. Ive been using this ever since i got it and i must say I'm very impressed. Its very lightweight and also blends like a dream this foundation is a medium coverage but you can also build it up. after I've applied this foundation my skin feels so silky smooth and it lasts all day with me well i first applied it with no primer and it lasted 6hours and then i tried it with primer and it lasted all day it didn't cake on me at all I'm very impressed with this foundation its my go to foundation now another thing is the smell of the foundation ooh i love it smells lovely and leaves me with a radiant finish it just looks so natual-looking its great for the price too the price is £21 which i think is such a good price for a brilliant foundation.

This is the packaging.



Here is the gorgeous expensive looking bottle.

Laidbare DIY! Two In One Cleanser & toner Review

Hey guys i was kindly sent a tube of laidbare DIY! two in one cleanser & toner to try out,
Ive heard so many good things about laidbare that i was super excited to try it



So hear it is its a 125ml tube its called DIY! two in one cleanser & toner its for all skin types and its with Apple Secrets Extract and Brazil Nut Extract in all of the laid back products there are NO Petrochemicals,sulfates,parabens,synthetic fragrance,synthetic colours,tea,dea,glycols,testing on animals.
here is a little bit more info,,
there natural ingredients are specially selected so each of there products are full of super rich skin nutrients.No synthetic or damaging ingredients. so this product that i recived is a no nonsense cleanser & toner in one this has liquorice and aloe vera for anti bacteria properties that reduce inflammation,tone,and strengthen the skin. Apple secrets extract helps protect your skin cells and Brazil nut extract is a valuable antioxidant,and astringent,at works hard to condition,nourish and repair.



Here is what the product looks lie as you can see its a gel cleanser that foams really well with warm water. I have used this since i got it every morning and night and to my surprise it even removes eye make up which is always good.

Ok on to my honest review what did i think of this product.............
First the smell of this is so lovely almost like a fruity apple kind of smell.
this is the first time that i have ever used a gel cleanser and i must say i have been really enjoying using this like i said it foams really well with warm water. This product is for all skin types. And as you all know i have really sensitive skin but i have not had a problem with this breaking me out at all which im very pleased about.
Ive also got really dry skin thats why i always stay away from gel cleansers but ive not had a problem with this at all it really suits my skin. After using this my skin looked and felt so soft and very clean. Ive also noticed that my dryness on my checks are starting to go my face just feels nourished. Plus This Product also acts as a toner as well as a cleanser so thats another good thing about this product as your not in the sink most of the morning applying different lotions and potions this is so quick just add some warm water foam it up in your hands and rinse and thats it you only need to apply moisturiser. This also gets rid of every trace of my eye make up even waterproof mascara.
So overall I'm so pleased with this laidbare cleanser & toner annd i would buy more from the range that they do this Two in one cleanser & toner is £5.99
but ive just looked and its now £2.99 its a bargain.

URBAN DECAY GLINDA PALETTE

As soon as i saw that urban decay had brought out 2 palettes for the upcoming OZ film i just had to have them as im a huge fan of urban decay.
I could not choose which one to go for so i just had to have the Glinda one and also the Theodora one i paid for the glinda one myself and my other half paid for the theodora one for my birthday.
Ive not yet used my theodora one yet as my birthday isn't till april but ive ben told im not allowed to touch it :( so unfair lol
Any way onto the Glinda Palette here are a few photos









First of all the outer cardboard packaging it stunning really pretty.




And also the packaging of the product its self is gorgeous its tin and has embossed writing saying urban decay OZ The Great And Powerful which is a lovely touch to the palette.






The Palette also comes with this stunning pic of Michelle Williams who plays Glinda (the good witch) and on the other-side it had instructions on how to get the look which is always good and there very easy to follow instructions as well.



So this is the palette and the gorgeous colours you can also pop the colours out as its in a build your own palette so you could mix up the colours a bit if you dont like the way the colours in the palette are.









In the palette you also get this Purple 24/7 Glide on eye pencil in rock star which is such a pretty colour.









And you also get this Super-Saturated High-Gloss Lip Colour in Glinda which is just a gorgeous brown nude colour which just look amazing on its so soft and creamy.



Here are all the colours
Tornado - A gorgeous deep purple

Aura - This one is a duo eyeshadow. its very light both of these colours are one is more pinky and the other is like an lilac colour i thought these might me chalky but there not there almost duo chrome such pretty colours.

Magic - This one i do find kind of chalky and needs building up but once you have build the colour up its such a stunning pink colour.

Illusion - This is such a lovely colour its so smooth as all of the colours in here this colour is a very light like fleshy colour so this one is a good colour for transitioning.

Oz - This is the second duo eyeshadow now both these colours are amazing and to be honest there my two favourite colours in the palette. there almost molten metal in the way they look. one thing i would say is the gold shade had chunkier glitter then the silver shade.

South - This is such a gorgeous shade its like a gorgeous brown with silver flecks its just stunning.

Rockstar 24/7 eyeliner - This is such a great purple colour that lasts so long its so smooth and creamy and stays put all day.

Glinda super-saturated lip pencil is a gorgeous shade its so flattering i find like a nude brown shade looks glossy on without being sticky .

So overall im very pleased with this palette and so worth the money as you get 6 eyeshadows (well with the duos 8) and you also get a super saturated lip colour and a eyeliner all for £35 which i don't think is bad at all!!
You can get these palettes from DEBENHAMS

Which witch are you Glinda or Theodora ??
Have you tried out these palettes or are you thinking of getting them if so which one will you be getting ????
