Thank you so much for your responses on my Make A Wish blog post yesterday lots of you have made some very lovely wishes for the Fairy Hobmother! I must admit, i have just spent my amazon gift vouchers! A blog post will come when they arrive!
Anyway, onto todays review! I recently received the Liz Earle Skin Tint and have been giving it a whirl the past few days and wanted to share my thoughts with you!
The Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint is a new colour product from Liz Earle due to be launched next month.
What Liz Earle, Co-Founder of Liz Earle has to say about the Sheer Skin Tint:
'We have formulated a unique, high performance beauty must-have that delivers great results on all skin types. Sheer Skin Tint is our first step into effortless, easy to wear colour. Its a skin thing!'
Lovely packaging as always...
Liz Earle describe the Sheer Skin Tint as a natural bridge from skincare through to colour, it is rich and creamy like a foundation yet so lightweight it glides effortlessly onto the skin, blending easily to enhance natural skin tones. It contains UV protection SPF15 and is also enriched with a selected blend of botanicals including: natural source vitamin E and avocado and borage so that it works in harmony with the Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare range (Which you all know i love!)
It is available in three shades: Bare, Beige and Beach. I have the lightest shade in Bare which is a perfect match for my NC15 skin tone.
Firstly, the packaging. The Sheer Skin Tint comes in a blue cardborard box and the product itself is housed in a sturdy squeezy tube that is marine blue and has a shimmering pearl in it.
It is quite thick and has a foundation consistency not like i would have expected from sheer skin tint but it is easily blendable and feels extremely lightweight on the skin. I applied this with a paddle foundation brush and found that it was really easy to apply. My skin is absolutely terrible without foundation but i felt that this gave me enough coverage for days when i didnt need or want to apply heavier make up or foundation. It covered my freckles and left a dewy (but not shiny) finish to my skin, which i really liked. I wouldnt compare this to a tinted moisturiser but more like a light foundation that could be easily built up for more coverage if needed. However, i did find that one application was enough.
Lasting power was extremely good and seemed to last on my oily - combination skin for the whole day without the need for any powder and didnt go shiny.
The one thing i would say about the Sheer Skin Tint is that it has quite a scent to it which i found to linger on the skin all day. This was not a problem for me as i didnt mind the smell but it is something to bear in mind.
How it looked on my face.

As you can see from the collage above, it has covered up my freckles, really evened out my skin tone and has given it a slightly dewy and luminous finish.
Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint will be available to purchase from September 15th 2011 and will retail at £21.00 for 40ml of product. If you purchase this, Liz Earle will include 3 samples of all three shades with each first purchase so that you can check your shade before opening your full size tube!
