I feel in love with this product over the summer and although I may not use it all year round I am sure it will become a staple for the summer!
Now I will start with the slightly negative- it is quite pricey. By quite I mean £21 which for 40ml of a product with not a great amount of coverage however I do think the positives out weigh the negative. I am also not overly excited about the packaging, sure it keeps the product inside clean but for this price I would expect a little more then a sparkly navy tube, maybe something glass with a pump (which of course is a little more costly to make.)
It also comes in a mere three shades and since I have the darkest one Beach I wouldn’t say that the choice is very wide although I can only use this when very tanned. However when you order this product on line they send you samples of all three shades so you can try them all out and make sure you have order the best colour and if not you can send the product back!
It has an SPF of 15 essential for the summer months!
The consistency is some what thick although the coverage is quite light. If you have less then perfect skin and you like extra coverage I would still recommend this product, just use an extra little concealer. It also takes a little longer then most face products to set leading my boyfriend to describe my face as ‘sticky’ until it has set. If you do suffer from oily skin a little powder in the t-zone would be okay but too much as this leaves skin beautifully dewy.
And my favourite thing about this product?
The finish! It leaves skin with a stunning dewy finish which looks natural and light, also I think that the finish is so light you can get away with a darker colour if you’re somewhere in between two colours.
After writing this review I find that this product does have a few negatives but I just love the finish too much to not love this product. However if you prefer matte finishes then this product clearly isn’t for you.
As a first step into colour from Liz Earle I think this is a great product and although there are some improvements that could be made I think that Liz Earle has got the right idea of what their range should be and I am extremely excited to see what they release next. I predict it will stay along the lines of sheer colour.
