Liz Earle Sheer Lip Gloss – Water Lily (12) (review)

Liz Earle Sheer Lip Gloss – Water Lily (12)
I promised you more make-up for 2015, and more make-up you shall have! And what better way to start the year than with a versatile lip gloss? This one's extra special because it's from Liz Earle, a company that rarely – if ever – lets me down.

This is a sheer gloss and the 'shade' is Water Lily (12). It's pretty much translucent but the little tube is filled with gold sparkles for an extra glamorous effect. The added sparkles are not noticeable once on your lips, but the extra shine is apparent.

It has a multitude of uses: I like to use it sparingly on its own giving me extra lip shine without being over the top. Slathering on a little more gives you a high-shine, glamorous finish. With this clear shade you can also use it on top of your regular, matte lipstick to pump up the effect.

I don't wear lip gloss very often, so I don't profess to be an expert, but this really is one of the least sticky glosses I've ever used. Funnily enough, the more sparingly you apply Liz Earle's gloss, the stickier it feels. A generous application seems to afford more slip to your lips!

What really impresses me is the nourishing aspect. It contains avocado and shea butters to keep your lips soft. And it works, I never experienced any dryness. Its lasting power is OK, but it's easy to reapply – its a pity the wand doesn't quite reach to the bottom of the tube, though!

The only drawback is the price. It's a little costly at £13.50 for 5 ml but it really is lovely to use so I, personally, think it's worth the extra but I wouldn't blame you if you looked for a cheaper option. There are a wide variety of shades to choose from (twelve at last count) and they're all pretty sophisticated, natural-looking shades. It's a great addition to the market!

YES!
NO!
Natural-looking
Perhaps a little expensive
Lips stay moisturised all day

Easy to use, effortless to wear

Not sticky if you use enough of it!
