Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint



Liz Earle currently has a great offer on if you buy the skin care starter kit (£43) you receive a complimentary Liz Earle Sheer skin tint. The set includes the cult product that is the hot cloth cleanser, a full size toner, and moisturiser (you can choose one to suit your skin type.) I saw this as a fantastic opportunity to stock up on my skincare bits, the offer is available until the 29th May for anyone who may interested, see here for details. 

In the UK we've had some hot weather and this has pretty much been my every day base of choice. When it's hot I need something that I can put on effortlessly, something that won't be too heavy on my skin, and something that won't make my skin look oily, this ticks all the boxes for me. The sheer skin tint is available in four shades, I wear the shade 'deep bisque' although this shade seems too light it blends into my skin perfectly (the skin on my face is a tad lighter than my body.) Unlike the tutorial (on the Liz Earle website) I actually don't find this looks overly dewy on my oily skin, this evens out my complexion and just leaves my skin looking natural, fresh and radiant. The texture is similar to a BB cream, I don't find that this feels heavy on my skin, it's certainly not noticeable, as the name would suggest this really does look true to skin. This base just makes me look like I have clear perfect skin, not like I'm wearing foundation. 

I like to take a little and blend into my skin using my fingers, I find this is the best way of application I did try to use my Real Techniques buffing brush but as this has a lightweight creamy texture fingertips really do give the best results. Despite having 'sheer' in the name I do find this provides me with a good amount of coverage, without feeling cakey, heavy or greasy on my skin. If you have any redness or uneven skin (like me) this evens everything out. This covered up my pigmentation really well, and covered redness near spots. If you do have spots going on though you may need to go in with a concealer after applying this. I powder using the Soap & Glory One heck of a blot down my T-zone (out of habit) but I haven't applied any in the picture above, although the finish in person is a little more dewy. 

A lot of the reviews I've read have described this as feeling quite thick/heavy in texture but in all honesty I found the texture similar to most BB creams on the market. I didn't find that this felt overly heavy, it doesn't congest my skin or feel heavy on the skin. 

If you're after a light summer base that looks natural, dewy and radiant it may be worth heading to a Liz Earle counter to try the Sheer skin tint. 

Have you tried any Liz Earle make up?
