Liz Earle Skin Tint

I was really excited to see what Liz Earle came up with when I heard they were going to realise a make-up line. Their first product is a Sheer Skin Tint*.
I love the deep blue they chose which has a light blue shimmer running through it. When I first saw the packing I wasn't too sure I would like it. For foundation I prefer a pump as I find it easier to control how much product I need. In fact, upon trying this, it's actually just as easy. It might start to be a pain once I'm near the end of the tube though. May have to do a bit of depotting, that won't be for a while though.

I have very pale skin with a yellow undertone so I am the lightest shade, Bare. Usually the lightest shade is still too dark for me but this actually matches me pretty well. I just have to make sure it's blended into my hair line and down my neck pretty well. There are two other shades: beige and beach. You can see swatches of those on Zoe's blog.

The sheer tint itself is really thick and creamy. The pigmentation really impressed me, it's like a foundation but doesn't feel like it on the skin. A little goes a long way too as it blends out so nicely. It leaves a dewy finish on the skin which I love. Those with oily skin may want to powder. It lasts really well on my skin, I have combination skin, leaning more towards the dry end, and I don't need to do any touch ups through out the day. It doesn't highlight any dry patches either.
The great thing is that it's build-able. You can apply one layer and then go over any problem areas with another layer for extra coverage. With the skin tint I ditch the foundation brush and use my fingers, I find this gives the best results.
It does contain mineral UV protection SPF 15 but I haven't noticed the "ghost" face effect with flash photography.

The skin tint is launched this month and will cost £21 for 40ml. You can pre-order a bottle here. The first time you buy this online you'll receive a sample of each shade so you can check which is right for you. Such a great idea and I definitely think more brands should include this.

Are you going to try this when it's released?
