Review: Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint


Dearest readers, I'm so sorry that I've been away for so long and neglected my blog. My husband and I are planning to move to Melbourne, Australia and things have been pretty hectic. I must have been away a long time as Blogger now has a completely new look. I'm really not used to it! 

Here is a quick review I made on Liz Earle's Sheer Skin Tint. I am in love with their Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. They have recently come out with an exciting makeup range of which I have only tried the Sheer Skin Tint.

Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint

Bare 01 Fair Skin Tones



According to Liz Earle:
The perfect way to enhance your skin. Our rich and creamy, yet lightweight formula leaves all skin types looking naturally dewy, even and radiant. With mineral UV SPF15, it’s enriched with our own blend of natural source vitamin E, borage and avocado, specially selected to work in harmony with our skincare range.

My review is based on some samples I received, hence I do not have my own picture of the actual product.

The tint on my hand. ingredients include Avocado Oil, Borage Oil, Vitamin E and Mineral UV SPF 15. It is available in 3 shades; Bare, Beige and Beach. I have the sample in the lightest shade Bare 01. Bare is a light beige which matches my NC15-20 skin.

My thoughts:

The texture of the tint is really thick and creamy. It's a very smooth cream which takes a bit longer to sink in due to its thickness. 

Liz Earle suggests you apply the tint onto the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin, then blend with fingertips over your face. Coverage is good, better than most tinted moisturisers - somewhere in between a tinted moisturiser and a foundation. I found it to to be very long lasting, however my skin felt a little oily at the end of the day. 

The finish is superb. It's nice and glowy without feeling too greasy (until the end of the day). It makes the skin look lovely and radiant. 


The tint on my skin:




Pros:

Contains mineral UV SPF 15
Did not irritate my sensitive skin
Good Coverage
Glowy, radiant Finish

Cons:
My Skin started to feel a little greasy by the end of the day
This texture means it can feel a little heavy on the skin

  1. That is exciting news! I'm sure you will love Melbourne (I lived there for 5 years and still dream of going back). When will you be moving?

  6. thank you for the review on this item!! I think I'm too spoiled with BB creams here.. as they remind me of tinted moisturisers but with slightly more coverage as well as higher SPF. It looks really good on you though - looking flawless as usual!

    OMG can't believe you're moving to Australia! I guess it's only natural since you have family there :)
