This lucky blogger was invited to attend a sneak peak of a new Liz Earle product range launching in September called Liz Earle Colour. This new product range is a departure from Naturally Active Skincare and is the first Liz Earle foray into makeup! I am so excited, words can not express. I decided to put the Liz Earle Colour Sheer Skin Tint SPF15 in beige 02 (it comes in 3 colors) to the test against my Bare Minerals Fairly Light SPF15 Foundation to see how they compared. See for yourself!
One of the advantages of having a mineral makeup in liquid format rather than solid form (e.g. “powder” form although it’s not really powder) is that you can add some nice skin goodies like borage and avocado oils and essential fatty acids (e.g. the omegas). When I asked Liz why they went with a liquid skin tint rather than solid she told me that the liquid form was better suited to all skin types. She herself has dry skin and solid mineral makeup can be drying or cakey for her. Liz Earle Colour Sheer Skin Tint has only one formula for all skin types. I was a bit worried that my oily-side-of-normal skin would look a bit greasy with the skin tint on but it doesn’t, it looks absolutely radiant. Plus it feels absolutely gorgeous going on. Although the skin tint sits on top of the skin (like all mineral makeup) and feels great to touch, it stood up well to the napkin test. It stays put. Liz herself wore it for 24 hours straight on a QVC show and didn’t need to reapply once (normally she does a full face 3 times for that kind of show!) Speaking of Liz’s face, when she met with us bloggers she was sporting a full face of test makeup that she’s currently working on. I’m very hopeful for future products because she looked fabulous, not at all like a make-up guinea pig!
You can be the first to know when this exciting product is going on sale by clicking here and filling in a form. When you can finally order the product you’ll be sent your bottle of Liz Earle Colour Skin Tint along with a sample of each of the 3 shades. That way you can try all 3 to make sure that you ordered the right shade. In case that you didn’t, you can swap out your unopened bottle for the right shade which will help cut down on wastage, not to mention the fact that it comes in a recyclable bottle, yeah for the environment and for customers! The 3 shades should be suitable for 90% of skin tones out there. I found that the middle color – beige blended well with my own skin tone. I would say that it provides a medium coverage. It didn’t quite make my sun spots disappear even after 3 layers, but it did enhance my complexion and give me a dewy finish.
Another noteworthy thing about the Liz Earle Colour Skin Tint is that it’s cruelty-free. That’s quite a feat not to use carmine (crushed up beetles) in a makeup range. It’s a pretty standard practice among main stream beauty companies. So there you have it, Liz Earle Colour Skin Tint SPF15 is good for customers, good for the environment, and good for the beetles. Everyone wins!
