Eyeko - old and new review

Hey ladies

This is a bit of different post as I wanted to do a review on the fab Eyeko range. Then I remembered that I had some stuff from Eyeko from years ago stashed away. (I am very naughty as never throw anything away lol)

So without further ado I shall show the new and the old!!!

First up this is all the bits and bobs that I have:

New - Eyeko cream, nail polishes, mascara
Old - Eyeko's powder, Silver stick

Polishes - £3.50 each - I currently only have 4 and I love them so definitely want to add to my collection. I won't go into masses of detail as I know lots of peeps have posted about these but the coverage is really nice and creamy and I LOVE the packaging. I have only swatched 3 of them so far but will swatch nude polish when I get some more :o)

Posh Polish

Lilac Polish

Tea Rose Polish

Next up Mascara and Cream

Cream - £8.00 - I have to say I am super, super impressed with this. I am pretty sure I had this product years ago and don't really remember much about it but I have to say I really love this. It is shimmer but not overpowering at all. It has given my grey skin a nice glow and I have stopped using my Benefit That Gal primer since using this as it is a similar texture. This is definitely a repurchase but will take forever to get through as you don't need much. I want to try the new extra glow cream next.

Mascara - £8.00 - I have to say I did not have very high hopes for this. Not because of the mascara itself but because I have horrible little straight short lashes. Well once again I was pleasantly surprised. I like the fact the brush is not huge as most of those just take over my entire face so this dainty little brush gets right down my little stubs and makes me look like I actually have lashes. It is also incredibly glossy which you may or may not like but for me this is a plus. All in all me likey lots :o)

Nice teeny brush for my little stubs!

and now for the old!!!

I know you prob think WHY would I post this but I just thought it was cool that this brand had been going for quite a few years (I think lots of people would have thought Eyeko was a new brand) so wanted to show you some of the cool things they used to have (wondering if they will bring it back)???

Eyeko powder - this is really pretty fine shimmey powder which looks is lovely on shoulders/arms. Even though it is not an overpowering glitter I would not put it on my face.

Silver stick - this has the oddest texture - it is really cold and just adds a tiny bit of glitter but again it is pretty fine and not a chunky glitter.

Pretty shimmer - do you think they should bring this back?

So there you have it - old and new from Eyeko. Let me know what you think and if you love Eyeko's range. I personally love everything I have tried and think the packaging is fantastic and the prices are great. Can't wait to see what fab things they have coming our way in the future...

I love Liz Earle

Hey guys

Well this little post is all about the fantastic skin care range Liz Earle. I have been using these products for about 8 years on and off and they are always ones that I skip back to in between trying new things.

In case you have not heard of them the company is based in the Isle of Wight and I think they have been around for around 15 years. They are into natural ingredients and no testing on animals which is fantastic. You can buy all there products from there own website or I get mine from good old QVC, (if any of you regularly read my blog you will see I LOVE QVC lol)!!

Neway enough of my waffling. This kit was one of the TSVs (Today's Special Value) which basically means it was at a mega low price for one day only.

I think I paid about £35 (but can't remember sorry) but it was worth way more than that. They have some fab kits for you to try and if you are a newbie some fantastic travel and trial kits on both web sites.

My kit contained 9 pieces + muslin cloths:

Foot scrub
Foot repair moisturiser

Energising body wash
Energising body scrub

Cleanse and polish (the product that launched the brand)
Skin repair moisturiser
Instant boost skin tonic
Eye bright
Daily eye repair

Full kit

I had never tried Liz's foot range and I have to say I was pretty impressed. It had a minty smell which I am totally not a fan of but it was not overpowering as it also had a spa fragrance mixed in as well. My feet were starting to resemble horse shoes so I used a ped egg first then soaked them with some bubbles then scrubbed all the nasty stuff away. I then popped on the moisturiser and it felt like a brand new pair of feet. I would say if you did this once a week you would have lovely little twinkle toes in no time...

I love this range, like seriously love it. The smell is like a real high end spa. The scrub is probably the best I have used. I am gutted I don't have a moisturiser at the moment as that just finishes everything off nicely. I always notice a difference straight away with her body products.

I tend to try and have the cleanse and polish, moisturiser and face toner at home at all times. This is a fantastic quick routine and really does the job. It makes you feel lovely and clean. Again the products smell fantastic. I will be honest I never really know what to do with the eye bright and do use the eye creams as I am getting old and wrinkly but I have yet to notice any difference.

All in all I would def try any of Liz's products. Her range is growing all the time, she has just introduced a hair range and now has her own perfume. I have tons of other products of hers that I use on a regular basis. The prices are all really reasonable and like I said if you keep checking out QVC web site you will see lots of fantastic kits. If you don't like them simply send them back within 30 days for a refund so you have nothing to loose. Simples!
