Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint

I'm sure you'll have read on lots of other blogs that Liz Earle have just launched their Colour Makeup Range and their very first product is the Sheer Skin Tint. I tend to wear foundation everyday; it's something i've been doing for years and I don't really feel confident enough to go out with nothing on my skin. I love the idea of the Sheer Skin Tint: a similar formulation to a liquid foundation that is buildable but light like a moisturiser. 
I've been wearing this for a couple of weeks and I really like it. It's nice to wear when you're having a good skin day and isn't heavy like a foundation. I do find that it can be a little bit oily but it works well with my dry skin. It doesn't completely cover blemishes so it's not suitable for everyone but I have worn it and then put a tiny bit of concealer on certain areas which works well. I think it would definitely be a really good product to buy for a holiday when you want a bit of coverage but don't want to wear foundation. 
The Sheer Skin Tint comes in three colours: 01 Bare, 02 Beige and 03 Beach and I chose the lightest shade: Bare, which matches my skin really well. It also contains SPF 15 which really appeals to me as i'm guilty of not protecting my skin enough. The scent does remind me of suncream a little but it isn't overpowering so I don't think it would put anyone off purchasing it. I do think it's a little pricey at £21 a tube, particularly as it's something that you'd wear quite regularly so it would run out quickly. 
Overall I do like this product but i'm not sure it would be something i'd repurchase because it doesn't really fit into my budget. As this is a product where you'd need to match the colour to your skin Liz Earle are offering customers a sample of all three shades with their order to help ensure they have chosen the perfect colour match. I'm really looking forward to seeing more of the Liz Earle Colour Range, especially if the products are as good quality as the Skin Tint.

The Liz Earle Skin Tint was launched today so head on over to their website if you're interested in finding out more or would like to purchase a tube.


  1. Great review! This looks lovely.. but a little pricey for my budget too :( xx

  2. Lovely! Tempted to purchase! but it is pricey

  3. Looks pretty. I too like to wear at least foundation if I leave the house as my skin has many different shades too it so foundation evens it out. This looks a great product, it's just a shame it's a little bit too pricey though.
    Great review :-)
