Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint Review

I really enjoy Liz Earle products and the cleanse and polish and superbalm moisturiser are staples of mine.  I was excited to hear that Liz was branching out to makeup because the products really agree with my skin so I was presuming that the makeup would too.

All geared up to meet Liz Earle a few weeks ago I was struck with an eye infection in both eyes (hence the lack of photos recently of me as it’s been recurring quite a bit).  Far too ashamed to meet the gorgeous glamorous Liz whilst looking like a complete minger I was a bit embarrassed but stayed away, god imagine if I gave LE an eye infection? The shame!

However they very kindly sent me the skin tint to try out and I put it on as soon as the postman arrived with it and have been wearing it every day since.  I am currently using fake bake spray tan so am shade #03 beach as it is a tan shade.

The sheer skin tint is a bridge between a foundation and a tinted moisturiser. I wouldn’t say it was super duper sheer, it’s more along the lines of the Korres Ginger and Vitamins foundation which is very sheer but not quite as lacking in coverage as a tinted moisturiser.

I am pretty sure this will become an instant customer favourite just like the cleanse and polish as it really delivers a sheer tint of colour, slightly more coverage than a too sheer tinted moisturiser and lasts (on me at least) all day long even without powder.  My skin looks radiant and clear and like I have naturally even skin rather than looking like I am wearing a make-up product.

It contains a mineral UV protection SPF15 and is enriched with botanicals, vitamin E, avocado and borage so it works in conjunction with the skincare range.The frankly ingenious idea, when customers order a sheer skin tint by mail, to send 3 samples of all different colours which you use to check the shade before opening the full side should be copied by other brands I think.   It is to help customers ensure that they select the right shade (I mean how annoying is it when your foundation is just the wrong colour) and it helps avoid unnecessary landfill of unused products.                                                                                                  

The skin tint will be available from September 15th 2011 in shades Bare, Beige or Beach.  It will cost £21 for 40ml and comes in a black squeezy tube which is easy to squeeze and doesn’t result in any product being shot out the end or oozing out like some other brands.  The packaging looks sleek and classy somewhat like Laura Mercier or Bobbi Brown.

Overall I give this product a 10/10 and would definitely purchase one when this runs out.

As I was kindly send 2 shades I will be giving away shade #2 Beige in a giveaway.  Click the logo on the right hand of the screen to go to the post to enter. Closes 16th August.
