This September, skincare brand Liz Earle will be taking its first step into colour cosmetics with the lauch of a much anticipated tinted moisturiser.
There'll be 3 shades to choose from and they all contain mineral SPF15 along with a limited range of botanical ingredients (vitamin E, avocado and borage).
Not wanting to go down the route of traditional black packaging, the team decided put the product into deep blue tubes. The inspiration for this actually struck whilst out at sea, and the shade has now been trademarked as 'Liz Earle marine blue'.
Texture wise it's thick but blendable, and although marketed as a tinted moisturiser, it is very pigmented and gives as much coverage as a light foundation. Personally I find it too thick to use by itself in the summer. Instead I've been mixing it with a moisturiser (for reference shade 2 is the best match for my NC25 skintone). The skin tint helps to add some coverage and together they give a nice radiant finish to the skin.
If like me, you hate choosing shades online, then you'll be glad to hear that Liz Earle has come up with a solution. When you order the skin tint, they'll also send you 3 sample satchets. That way you can try them all and if you find another shade suits you better, simply return the unopened tube and they'll exchange it for another colour.
Liz Earle skin tint will be available from 15th September, and will be priced at £21 for 40ml. Click here to sign up for more information from the official website.
