Product Review: Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint SPF15

by Gio

It’s no secret that I love Liz Earle skincare products so I’m very happy they decided to branch out into the world of makeup, too. Sheer Skin Tint SPF15 is their first offering and, as always, it doesn’t disappoint.

Sheer Skin Tint is available in only three shades: Bare, Beige and Beach. I have Bare, which is the palest and a very good match for my skintone. But with such a small shade selection, not everyone will be able the perfect fit. Can you expand the range, Liz, please?

The consistency is quite thick, but very easy to blend and once applied, it feels lightweight on the skin. At first, I thought it was a tinted moisturizer but it definitely isn’t. It’s just not moisturizing enough to be used alone.

Sheer Skin Tint is a sheer foundation and, used like that, it works really well. It provides sheer coverage that evens out the skintone and hides redness but not dark circles or major skin imperfections. For that, you will have to use a concealer.

And while I wouldn’t describe the finish as dewy, it does add a beautiful and natural glow to my skin. It may be. a bit too gloomy for oily skin, but everyone else will love it.

Staying power is excellent. I put it on in the morning and, when I come back home in the evening, it is still there.

One more thing: this tainted moisturiser has in-built SPF, but it doesn’t provide broad spectrum protection. Don’t use it as a replacement for sunscreen.

Available at: £25.50 at John Lewis

Jamilla, you’re welcome. It is really a great sheer foundation for those with dry and normal skin.

I love that they provide customers with 3 shade samples, that’s a great way to make sure you can get the right shade!

Sounds very interesting, thanks for the review 🙂

Makeup Morsels, it’s a great idea, I agree. I’m always wary of buying foundations online for fear of purchasing the wrong shades, and this way the problem is easily solved. More companies should follow suit imo.
