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.
