The Day I met Liz Earle & First Look At The New Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint SPF15!

I was recently lucky enough to meet Liz Earle at the Flagship Store in Sloane Square.

She talked myself and Sabrina through the exciting new product and exciting venture into colour. The new product itself is the Sheer Skin Tint with SPF15.

Liz also revealed that later on in the year the venture into colour will become much greater so there will be lots more exciting products on the horizon!

For now the first product to be released in the Sheer Skin Tint and it's an exciting one i tell you.

It's a light foundation that claims to even skin tone and give you a natural glow..something we all want. It is also perfect for those with sensitive skin.

It has a mineral UV protection SPF15 and is also enriched with carefully selected blend of botanicals..natural source vitamin E, avocado and borage.

It is designed to wear all year round but if you are like me and like a bit more coverage throughout the colder months and you are thinking this may be something you would just wear in the summer then keep on reading for my full review..you will be very surprised and pleased!!

There will be three shades available...Bare 01, Beige 02 and Beach 03 and will retail at £21. Liz did also mention that one tube should last around 3 months.

So what do i think??

I was very kindly given 2 shades to road test..shade Bare 01 and Beige 02.

First of all i love the packaging...Simple yet Chic

The squeezy tube is so easy and convenient and at 40ml is easy to travel with.

The bottle itself has a shimmering pearl finish and is a unique 'marine' colour which Liz said reflects the way the warm summer sunshine gently filters down through the glistening, inky depths of The Solent.

It also showcases the new logo design for the evolution into Liz Earle Colour.

Left 01 Bare Right 02 Beige

Left 01 Bare blended and Right 02 Beige Blended

The picture above shows 02 Beige much more blended in. I chose to show you this shade a lot more blended in as 01 is very pale for myself but i use it as a concealer under my eyes and 02 all over my face. It is the perfect match.

When i first applied the Sheer Skin Tint to my face it was instant  Love!!

I am a fan of heavy full coverage foundations to hide everything possible lol bad i know but its what i like.

Well the Sheer Skin Tint gave me amazing medium coverage but with the most amazing glow

So amazing i tell you. I did promise earlier that you would want to wear this all year round and you really will i know i will.

It stays in place all day and i still can't get over the fact it's so lightweight but gave me perfect coverage at the same time!

The glow and radiant dewy finish well...blew me away i am really not exaggerating here i was so so happy not to have to powder my face..such a natural dewy finish.

Please bare in mind that i do have dry skin, the Sheer Skin Tint is for all skin types but this is my review based on dry skin i really can't give a review for oily skin.

Just remember though the famous Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser is also for all skin types so don't just pass this by as i say it has a gorgeous dewy finish you will really need to try it for yourself.

Talking of trying it for yourself..if your not sure on what colour you will be or whether you are happy this will work with your skin type Liz Earle are offering a  Fist Time, Right Shade This basically means you can order the Sheer Skin Tint by mail and you will be given samples of all three shades with each first purchase. This is to ensure you are happy with your shade..if you select your shade and its not the full size one you purchased you can return that shade unused and get the shade which is perfect for you. Brilliant idea hey?!

I'm not over board about the scent of the product i must admit and it is quite strong.

The product itself doesn't feel greasy it's really creamy and blended super well on the skin. You could also really build it up if you wanted to wear it of an evening. Its a really versatile product and one i think many of you will love.

I suffer with dark circles under my eyes so Liz recommended that i use shade 01 under my eyes to brighten and cover the darkness. It works wonders and i am so happy.

I i am so impressed with Liz Earle's new venture into colour and i cant wait to see what is released next.

Have you tried the Sheer Skin Tint yet? What do you think?
