Review: Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint

August 26, 2011
Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint


£21.00 from Liz Earle. The product is available from the the 8th September and can be pre-ordered. I was sent this for review purposes.

What does it claim to do?

'We've spent three years carefully creating our high performance make up must-have, which leaves skin looking dewy, even and radiant. Suitable for all skin types, it contains mineral UV protection SPF15 and gives you the perfect level of coverage to achieve natural-looking, beautiful skin.

Sheer Skin Tint is available in three shades: Bare 01 for fair skin tones, Beige 02 for medium skin tones and Beach 03 for medium to dark skin tones. A sample of all three shades will be sent with your order to help ensure you have chosen your perfect colour match.' - Liz Earle

What do I think?

I was extremely excited to try the new Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint- as you can see from my post when I found out about the launch. You all know I'm a huge fan of the brand and most products from the range have impressed me- so I had high hopes for the skin tint.

It arrived a week or so ago and I have been wearing it every day so I could give a really honest verdict on this. The tint comes in three shades and I went for shade 2- beige, however this feels a tad light for me at the moment as my skin has more colour at the moment. I don't know how dark shade 3 would be but I'm not sure how well this would work with much darker skin types.

In terms of packaging I quite like it. It's nothing spectacular- very simple and looks quite classic. I like how they have gone for a different colour palette to the skincare range.

The product describes itself as 'rich and creamy like a foundation, yet so lightweight it glides effortlessly onto the skin'. I would agree with this- it does have a rich texture and feels quite thick (yet not like a heavy coverage foundation) but it is easy to blend into the skin- I don't find it as easy to blend as the Garnier BB Cream however (a product I've been using a lot and so naturally have compared the two).

The coverage and finish is light but very flattering. It leaves skin looking natural but with a lovely dewy look- it also lasts all day which I was impressed with as find that a lot of tinted moisturiser type products just disappear throughout the day.

There are lots of good things about this product but I feel that something was missing- it definitely does the job and does it well, but there wasn't a 'wow' factor for me with this. I think I was expecting to be super impressed (as I was when the haircare launched) but I've not felt really excited about using the sheer tint. Saying that, this is only the beginning for Liz Earle's foray into make-up and I'm really looking forward to seeing what else they bring out.

Would I re-purchase?

Honestly- I don't think I would. Yes, it is a good product and really does the job but I think £21 is quite pricy for the product and it didn't wow me enough to keep me buying.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this if you've tried it as I've been reading mixed reviews. Will you be looking to buy it when it launches?

  6. Thank you so much for the honest skin care reviews. I love sheer foundations like this, but £21 is too much.
