Liz Earl Sheer Skin Tint...

Thursday, 22 September 2011
I recently received this Liz Earl Sheer Skin Tint from Sam who has an amazing cruelty free blog "The Beauty Diaries" because I had won the giveaway on her blog. Seeing lots of blog posts on this when it was released made me curious...could a medium to full coverage kind of girl be converted to a skin tint? From what I had read this was a mysterious product that falls between a tinted moisturiser and a foundation. Liz Earl describe it as the  'natural bridge from skincare through to colour, a rich and creamy foundation like consistency, blending easily to enhance natural skintones' so I was extremely excited to win, especially as I won a Liz Earl cleanse and polish a while ago and love it.
 The tint comes in a very expensive looking navy box with the colour printed along the bottom, as you can see I went for the medium shade - beige 02. I went with this because even though I am far from tanned I am never the palest shade in foundations. My view was that if it was too dark, I would still get the use out of it when I am fake tanned up, however I was wrong and this shade suits both. I think it is because the product is sheer so it is easily blendable.
 The bottle itself is a unique blue colour with sparkle in it, which you will never see anywhere else as Liz Earl has patented the colour. The total amount you get is 40ml which is larger than most foundations but this does come at £21! (Although I have paid almost £40 for a foundation before..eek).
The active ingredients in the Sheer Skin Tint are Avocado Oil to leave the skin smooth and soft, Borage Oil to helo lock moisture into the skin and Vitamin E an anti-oxidant to protect skin against free radical damage caused by pollution and the sun’s radiation.
 The first time I put this on I used my fingers to get the "feel" of the product but to be honest I soon switched to my sigma f80 because I was using far too much product. The coverage was sheer on my skin and one layer wasn't enough for me. Lucky for me, this product is perfect for building up to a level of coverage to suit different needs. Straight after applying the skin tint you will have the "wet look" face but only for a few minutes as the tint dries. With a primer (my witch skin care one) this lasts all day for me. I just set with my Mac Mineralise Skin Finish and use my Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel and I am set for the day! Shocking considering there was a time where I wouldn't leave the house without Estee Lauder Double Wear on my face.
To make sure you get the right shade Liz Earl have their "First time, right shade" .
Have you tried this?
