In love with Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint

The younger you are, the better basis your skin offers to apply foundation. However, being young and dewy by nature, your skin doesn’t really need foundation. The older you get, the more you crave a little cover up. At the same time, makeup and older skin don’t always work that well together. If you choose a drier, powdery compact foundation, chances are that it ends up in the fine lines and wrinkles around mouth and eyes. If you choose an oily, richer fluid foundation, it’s quite likely that your t-zone shines like a Christmas tree, or that you – as in my case – break out in spots. Life ain’t fair.

A while ago I received Liz Earle’s Sheer Skin Tint to test. I have been in love ever since. It’s rich and creamy, yet lightweight. It’s got SPF15, i.e. it spares me slapping on the sunscreen underneath. It’s super easy to apply – just use your fingertips to blend it into your skin.

Having spent most of the summer under the Southern European sun, I am currently using their medium shade, beige. I’d most likely go for the palest shade, bare, otherwise.

There is one brand new tube of Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint in bare waiting for a lovely reader to be won. Just tell me a bit about your personal beauty routine and add a comment below until Friday, 30th of September, 6pm.


  1. I have seen a lot about this on Twitter recently, all good reviews.

    My beauty routine, hmmm. It’s not as thorough as I’d like it. It involves either a Boot’s or Kiehl’s facewash and flannel, followed by Nivea moisturiser and as much MAC as it takes to cover my eye bags.

    I need to sort it out really – gone are the days of leisurely spending twenty minutes on my makeup every morning.

  2. Alice – tinted moisturiser is the way to go – one product, two things done

    I’m still trying this one out – not sure I like it as much as my dermalogica one I’ve used for years (this may be me trying to pretend I don’t need a slightly heaver version)

  3. My beauty routine…tinted moisturezed from Clinique, Chanel or Lancome plus loads of moisturese and serum from Esteer Lauder, plus liquid facial soap from Clinique

  4. This sounds great. I’ve always used cleaner, toner and moisturiser and I’m fond of Clarins, but winter always plays havoc with my skin and dries it own so whatever foundation I’m using never sits quite like it does in the warmer monnths.

  5. I like Liz Earle very much so I’m very excited to hear about this.

    Sadly my routine isn’t as good as it should be, mostly because of time and because my skin isn’t too bad I rely on it looking after itself more than I should.

    Once a week though I love to have a bath and before that bath I do exfolitating and massage in really rich face cream in the hope that will help my face forgive me.

    My daily routine, get up, put on radio 4’s the today programme, get in shower, brush teeth, cleanse if I’m lucky, moisturise hopefully, tend to brows and run for the tube!

  6. I have just ran out of foundation this morning (, I have used this for about a year now, mainly because I have oily skin prone to break outs. I am wondering if this one would give me enough coverage? I am old you know lmao (ok so not that old 41). Because of the break outs I am currently using Burts Bees (, and I use a VERY light moisturiser, but I tend to switch around a lot to the new ‘best’ thing lol. I dont know what else to tell you, except I sometimes use Tesco natural soap in lavender and chamomile.

  7. I have been having a love affair with tinted moisturiser all summer, feels so much nicer than a heavy foundation.
    My beauty routine is not as thorough as it was pre-child but as long as I have time to wash with dove and slather on whatever moisturiser I currently have on the go then I’m happy!

  8. I bought a tinted moisturiser earlier this year, a lancome one but I have always been a fan of Liz Earle and the cleanser is a part of my regular regime.

  9. I’m adicted to Aveda cleansing products – love having all those green tubes lined on in my bathroom. And much prefer tinted moisturisers to foundations – Shisiedo is my current one. I’ve heard great things about Liz Earle products and would love to try this out.

  10. I’ve recently been sent a sample as well and it is lovely. I’m keen to try the Laura Mercier one too.

  11. My skincare routine! Eek!

    Well I have made more of an effort of late, I bought some LE hot cleanse and polish but I rarely manage to use it once a day let alone twice! I love the moisturiser though as I have such dry skin but this is brilliant. But really that’s well it, unless we’re going out somewhere and I can spare a few extra minutes! xx

  12. I love Burts Bees Radiance Day Cream. I used to use Estee Lauder but switched for convenience once and have never looked back. And as for foundations, I prefer the tints to full cover because my look is much more natural than full on! My favourite at the moment is she uemura face architect. Always happy to try another product though!

  13. As much as I love nice clean gorgeous skin, I can’t wear heavy foundations either so I’m at the moment mixing my tinted moisturizer with foundation and slapping it on. *le sigh

  14. I tried Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser but it’s way too greasy. I’m using Lumene’s mineral powder at the moment, Mattia serum at daytime and Proactive stuff for washing/toning.

  15. ingrid says

    I have very sensitive skin and use a lot of products with argan or rose otto oil. I also enjoy Dr Hauscha products. I have used a number of Liz Earle products and find them superb however the skin tint has not arrived in the only retail shop that sellls her products in Ireland yet.

  16. You have a beautiful skin. I am totally into foundations and bronzer and I’m always bronzing too much but can’t get away from it.

  17. i’m intrigued on this, i’d love to try it! i’ve recently tried kiehl’s and i love it SO much – i can tell it is taking oil right off and i heart that 🙂 other than that, i’m so low maintenance..

  18. I’m a Mary Kay girl as my mom used these products and it rubbed off on me…cleanser, moisturizer and eye cream by morning and night, and I often use toner after washing my face in the evening to rub the London yuck out of my skin. I’d be interested to try this foundation as I don’t currently wear one, but I’m sure I’d look better for it!
