Bat Those Lashes With Liz Earle Colour Lash Definition Smudgeproof Mascara

I have to be honest and say that I'm finding Project 10 Pan much harder this time round,whilst I'm managing to use products up fairly easily, I'm still having the overwhelming urge to buy new make up. I've added so many things to my wishlist over that last few months and I just can't wait to start filling my basket with lots of pretty make up. Admittedly I think I'll be more selective with my purchases than I have been in the past, but there have so many new launches and new innovations over the past few months, that I would be betraying my beauty junkie self if I didn't indulge just a little bit.

One of the launches that I was most excited about was the full launch of Liz Earle Colour. As you know I am a huge fan of the full Liz Earle range so when the rumours started that a make up line was on the cards I was super excited. Last year the brand launched their Sheer Skin Tint (read my review here) which was just a taste of what was to come. A few months ago and slap bang in the middle of my Project 10 Pan experience the full Colour range was launched. The range contains everything from base products such as foundations, and face powders, to cheek products such as bronzers and blushers, to lip colours, eye shadows and mascaras, and even make up brushes. Whilst prices start from just £5 I would say that this isn't the cheapest range out there , but what you are getting is a range that holds true to the philosophy of Liz Earle. Developed over a 3 year period with leading make up artists Jane Bradley, the Colour range like the skincare line is designed to be used by people of all skin types, all skin tones and of all ages. All the products contain specially selected natural and botanical ingredients to create a range of make up that is flattering, long lasting and good for your skin.

I've seen a lot of blog posts and pictures online, and I've seen a few QVC presentations and I have to say I'm impressed - the colours and textures look amazing, and when applied all the products look natural and flattering. I've already made a bit of a wishlist which includes some of the powder and cream blushers, some of the eyeshadows, and of course the foundation which I've heard so many good things about :) When I've finished Project 10 Pan I fully intended to pop into my nearest John Lewis to check out the range in the flesh, to decided which colours and so on would be best for me but I was kindly sent a Liz Earle Make Up Shade Selector with an order.


The fantastic people at Liz Earle have recognised that it can sometimes be difficult to choose make up shades online, so they've produced a a Make Up Shade Selector booklet, which allows you to compare the colours of your current make up items to shades in the Liz Earle Colour line, I've already had a play with my cream blushers and whilst colours vary due to printing and so on I think that this is a great idea especially when your limited to ordering online and via mail order.

I was all prepared to stick it out and wait till I'd finished Project 10 Pan but the lovely people at Liz Earle very kindly sent me one of the new Colour product to try out. 


The line of eye products contains eyeshadows, eye pencils, eyebrow pencils, eye brushes, a mascara base and the Lash Definition Smudgeproof Mascara.


It's unusual for a brand to just produce one mascara, but this is Liz Earle so we shouldn't be surprised, why produce three products when you can produce just one amazing product.


It comes boxed, and packaged in a very dark navy blue tube which seems to have tiny sparkles running through it. This mascara contains Vitamin E and is designed to be water resistant, flake free and long lasting 


The brush doesn't look too exciting, it's just a slightly tapered bristle brush which is designed to produce long defined lashes. I liked this brush a lot it wasn't too big which meant it was quite easy to use it one the lower lashes whilst at the same time it was big enough to easily cover my top lashes.


It comes in two shades 01 Black and 02 Brown. I was sent 01 Black which is a classic everyday, black shade. The formulation isn't too wet and it's isn't too dry, making it easy to apply without smudging or dripping.


The only way to show how good a mascara is though is by doing some before and after shots, so here you go my scary bare lashes, and no your eyes aren't deceiving you I do indeed have some white eyelashes - sob!

As you can see this mascara does exactly what it promises, my lashes are darker, they look longer, and they look more defined and dare I say it obvious. The mascara lasted really well without any major smudging, in fact the longest I wore it for was for over 12 hours, which included spending time outside in the mist and rain, sweating and so on, and it still looked fine with only a tiny bit of under eye smudging when I can to remove it. This isn't the most dramatic of mascaras but I have to say I really like it, it gives my lashes a really nice full and defined finish, and it doesn't leave them feeling dry or hard. If your after a more dramatic lash look through Liz Earle also produce a Lash Care Intensifying Mascara Base which aims to make the lashes look longer and thicker, which can be used alongside this mascara for a more dramatic look, but personally this mascara makes enough of a difference for me :) Liz Earle Colour Lash Definition Smudgeproof Mascara 8ml comes in two shades and retails at £14.50.
