Liz Earle Natural Finish Pressed Powder review, photos

As someone who has an oily T-zone that could blind you on a sunny day, it's important for me to protect your eyeballs from my facial shine.  Seriously, it can be really bad sometimes.  You know when you're driving home on an autumn evening and the sun is low and shining right in your eyes, so you have to sit up poker straight in your seat to hide your peepers behind the visor?  That.  That is what my oily face can do.

This Natural Finish Pressed Powder (€23.00) arrived from Liz Earle and I got stuck in to it with the aim of protecting everyone's retinas.

The midnight blue packaging is sleek and shiny.  When you open it, there's a mirror, the powder and under the powder, there's a section for the sponge should you like to use that.  I'm always fearful that I'll use too much powder if I apply it with a sponge, so I've been using my big EcoTools powder blush and it's a match made in heaven.  I do like to play with the sponge from time to time and pretend I'm a lady powdering my nose.  I blame the return of Downton Abbey for my ladylike behaviour.

The powder itself is light and silky in texture and enriched with a blend of natural source vitamin C, borage and avocado.  There are seven shades in the range and I've been using the second lightest, Sheer Ivory, mainly on my forehead, nose and chin.

I usually apply it at 7am and the matte, velvety finish that it gives my skin lasts until about noon and even at then, it's only my nose that has started to look shiny.  My forehead stays smooth and matte and stays like that for the rest of the work day.  It feels light on my skin and most important of all, it doesn't look cakey.  This is now the powder I reach for on a daily basis, it's gorgeous.
