What Liz Earle say about their new product: Our new Skin Tint is the natural bridge from skincare through to colour. It's rich and creamy like a foundation, yet lightweight and glides effortlessly onto the skin, blending easily to enhance natural skin tones. Just like our award winning Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, Sheer Skin Tint delivers dependable, visible results for all skin types. Designed for use all year round, our unique, high performance formulation leaves skin looking dewy, even and radiant, with the perfect level of coverage for every woman to achieve natural beautiful skin.
With mineral UV protection SPF 15, Sheer Skin Tint is also enriched with our own carefully selected blend of botanicals: natural source vitamin E avocado and borage, to work in harmony with our Liz Earle skincare range.

Well I'll be honest, I generally stay away from tinted moisturisers because they don't offer enough coverage for me. My skin is acne prone and I have areas of scarring and redness which take quite a bit of covering, so I normally opt for medium to full coverage foundations. Like other tinted moisturisers I've tried in the past, Skin Tint offers sheer coverage, but can be built up for a slighter fuller coverage base.Texture wise, it's quite thick, creamy and rich and a little bit of product seems to go a long way. A pea sized amount is enough to cover my face in a thin layer of product, but I've been adding a tiny bit more to problem areas which need concealing.

I was sent the lightest (Bare) of the three available shades to try and it's not a bad match on my NC20 ish skin tone. I would say it's a touch too light for me at the moment, but because the product is sheer and blends in well, I can get away with the slight colour difference. Those of you who order a tube of Sheer Skin Tint via the Liz Earle website will receive a sample of each of the three shades with your first order, so you can find a shade match before opening the full size tube. If you've ordered the wrong colour, you will be able to exchange your tube for the correct shade. There will be three colours on offer: Bare (for fair skintones), Beige (for medium skintones) and Beach (for darker skintones). Below are some swatches of the lightest colour.

All in all, Sheer Skin Tint is a lovely product and I imagine it would look great on those who can get away with a sheer coverage base. Unfortunately, my skin just isn't in good enough shape at the moment and I need something which covers more. The actual feel, finish and lasting power with Skin Tint is excellent and I will definitely be holding on to my tube and using it when my skin's in better condition, or on days when I want something light and natural looking. If you're a tinted moisturiser or Liz Earle skin care fan, I highly recommend checking out the base. It's available from September the 15th and will cost £21.00 for a 40ml tube.
