Liz Earle Skin Tint Review!

If you are a regular reader of my blog you will have seen quite a few reviews on various Liz Earle products. Always known for the gentle and effective skincare it was always going to be a challenge that any makeup would have to live up to the brands reputation.

The New Sheer Skin Tint is marketed as The next step for natural looking, beautiful skin.

I'm not surprised that customers have been asking for such a product as i know Liz Earle have such a huge following of loyal customers who will no doubt be snapping this up as soon as it becomes available in September.

The product comes in 3 shades 1 being the lightest and 3 the deepest. From the swatches Ive seen the shades seem really good and I'm sure no1 will suit those porcelain skinned ladies which makes a nice chance from a lot of orange based shades which some companies produce.
The Skin tint retails at £21 which is a little bit more than what i was expecting but hey ho if a product works then its worth paying a little bit more. I was also pleased to see it contains an SPF15 which is great.

The Results!

Wearing Skin Tint No 2

So for me the shade 2 is just a little bit too light. I think i would be better off with shade 3 but its nothing a slightly darker powder can't fix.
Formulation wise i have read very mixed reviews some saying it was more like a foundation some saying more coverage/less coverage than they expected so i was really unsure about what to expect.

On me i found i still needed a light moisturiser before using this to give it enough slip to work properly. I found it had a very light coverage although it feels a thicker texture than i expected.
The thing i liked most about this was the amazing glow it gave my skin which really lasted even after applying a small amount of powder.

I found it lasted really well on my skin as well, most Tinted moisturisers only last a few hrs on me but this literally lasted all day.

Skin Tint Shade2 with MAC Skinfinish powder in Medium/Deep

As you can see the colour is a pretty good match once i dust over with my powder and i seriously love the way it makes my skin look. I have had a lot of lovely comments on my skin when I've been wearing this and i have to say it photographs brilliantly as well.

If you are wanting a lot of cover then this just isn't for you but if you like a lovely natural look and added glow then you can't go wrong with this. Perfect for everyday use and would be brilliant for holidays too. I love the fact that i can still see my freckles when wearing this :)

Will you be getting your hands on this once it's released or have you already tried it?


  1. This is winging its way to me - hoping it arrives before I go on holiday, because I think it'll be perfect for that! x

  2. Think i'm gonna have to try this for definite, running out of tinted moisturiser and it makes me feel like i look a bit more alive haha!
    Looks fab :)

  3. I should get mine any day now! It looks gorgeous on you Hun :) x now I've seen how it looks on you, I'm crossing my fingers for an equally good result! :) x

  4. what is your mac shade?
    I saw some other swathes of shade looks darker than your swatch? i am quite confused?

  5. I love mine! Been using it non stop since I got it! You look absolutely gorgeous with and without it too hun xxx

  6. Thanks ladies for your comments xx

    Stealing Beauty: my hands are very tanned at the moment and darker than my face that is probably why the swatch looks lighter on me against others that you have seen. I'm usually about a NC 20/25 but my hands are darker than that by a long way hope this helps xx

  7. hi all. I am very glad to get acquainted with a woman who likes the beauty. very good blog.

  8. ooh I really like how this looks - it just evens things out without it looking too heavy :)

  9. Oh i can't wait for mine to arrive now after seeing this post!!

  10. Another great post hun, so glad your back on as was missing your lovely posts! I have this to try and couldn't pick between shade 1 or 2 I am a lot lighter than you but thought shade 1 would be good for me in the winter and shade2 would be better for me in the summer. I think your skin looks lush, what blusher/highlighter & Lippie do you have on your cheeks int he last pic? x
