Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint & Foundation Brush

It's no secret that I am a big Liz Earle fan. Whether it's their makeup, skincare or even fragrances, I have loved every product I've tried. I think Liz Earle really shows the quality in their ingredients by how their products make my skin feel, both skincare and makeup alike. I have been trying out two products from Liz Earle over the past few weeks. The Liz Earle Foundation Brush and the Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint SPF15 in shade Beige 02. Lets start with the foundation brush.

This is the first makeup brush from Liz Earle I have tried and I have to be honest, I don't like it. I just find it very stiff and it doesn't give much room for movement when applying foundation. I do like the design of the brush, but for my personal preferences, the bristles are just too stiff. None-the-less, it might be perfect for some of you! You can find it on the Liz Earle website here and it costs £18.

The Sheer Skin Tint on the other hand, I love! It's a product I've been wanting to try for a while, looking for the perfect alternative to foundation for when those warmer months finally come around. The Sheer Skin Tint, which has a very limited range of four shades, comes in a nice squeezy 40ml tube. It's advertised as being a rich and creamy yet still lightweight formula product which leaves all skin types looking naturally dewy, even and radiant. Now, I agree with all of that. But. I don't think it's light. It's quite a thick product and takes a fair bit of blending in! But that aside, it's perfect. It has mineral UV protection of SPF15 and is also enriched with Liz Earle's own blend of natural source Vitamin E, borage and avocado, specially selected to work in harmony with Liz Earle's skincare range.

The reason I love this product so much is because it makes my skin look so much more even, with a decent and buildable coverage, without having the feel or weight of a foundation. It definitely leaves a lovely dewy glow, but not so much that it looks like my oily skin is having a tantrum. It suits my skin type really lovely, too, and I find it quite long lasting and a product which I can happily pop on before heading out for the day. I've been using a lot over the past few weeks and I think it's going to be a product I reach for a lot over the warmer months. You can find it on the Liz Earle website here and a 40ml tube costs £21.

  1. I tried the skin tint last year when it first came out. In fact I ordered it the day it was released because I was so excited to try it. I wasn't keen though. I found it quite heavy & tacky on my skin, I also preferred the coverage & finish I get from BB creams so I never bought it again. Saying that my skin type has changed over the last year and I'm much less oily so maybe I'd feel differently now but I love BB creams too much to want to try it again x

    1. Ah, it's such a shame to hear this didn't work for you Andy! :( If you decide to give it a go again and things change, let me know, it'd be interesting to see if your skin is different with it now! xo

  2. You know I don't find it hard to blend. I do use quite a small amount. The first time I used it I thought I looked dreadful, I applied too much for my liking. What I do now is apply it in small stages, so that I'm only working with a small amount of product. That way I find it blends in and looks like my skin but a lot more even. I really do like this, it's perfect for the warmer months. Do try applying it lighter, or in lighter stages, I think it'll be easy to blend! x

  3. I wanted to like this so much (as I love practically everything by Liz Earle!), but I found it too greasy and heavy for my oily/combo skin sadly :(

    1. Oh no! That's such a shame. As you know I have oily/combo skin too but found this was lovely with my skin xo

  4. I found that I could really feel this on my skin, I didn't like it too much! I like a nice soft brush so ill probably pass on that! I would wear the skin tint on lazy days though... In case someone comes to the door! :)
