Liz Earle devotees will have no doubt heard whispers of a make-up range already and I’m pleased to report the rumours are true; 15 September sees the launch of Liz Earle Colour.
As is perhaps befitting the skincare guru, the first product from the range is Sheer Skin Tint, which I was introduced to by Liz herself last week. She describes it as the natural bridge from skincare to colour and I’d describe it as lighter than foundation and a tad heavier than tinted moisturiser, so a nice happy medium.
Available in three shades (see swatches here), Sheer Skin Tint promises luminosity and lasting, buildable colour. Liz herself described it as hopefully delivering dependable, visible results for all skin types – like with Cleanse & Polish
As a Liz Earle devotee I’m sure you’re expecting me to give this a rave review and, guess what… that’s what I’m going to do. I write about beauty for a living and have tried pretty much every foundation and tinted moisturiser on the market and I’m really happy with this one. Here’s why – not just because it’s Liz Earle…
- A tiny bit goes a long way. They say it should last three months, I can believe it!
- That buildable coverage? It’s true. Good days I use a quick layer where needed. Bad days, I can go back and add more without caking or creasing. It’s really lightweight but definitely does what it should with coverage.
- Luminosity was a big thing for Liz and that’s what you get – a glowing, slightly dewy finish that, again, lasts.
- It has SPF15, which anything you put on your face should.
- I don’t want to build it up too much, but I also feel like it’s done my skin some good – my usual jawline hormonal breakout didn’t occur this month, although that could be down to less booze/more sleep lately… Sheer Skin Tint does contain a blend of vitamin E, avocado and borage to work in harmony with Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare
I don’t really know what else you’d want from a lightweight foundation – it covers without caking and makes your skin look fresh and healthy. Who wouldn’t want that?
One other thing – when you buy a tube online, you’re sent three sachets sampling each shade for what the’re calling ‘First Time, Right Shade’. This means you can try your choice of colour out and if it’s not right, return the tube unopened. If it is right, you’re sorted and have a couple of extra sachets for your pals.
In short, it makes your skin look good and it works. More makeup is set to come, but as with all things Liz it’s not being rushed.
