Hi peeps, I’m still alive. Less stressed than last week, but unfortunately still stressed so bear with me until I can get back to a regular blogging schedule. Thanks 🙂
In my early twenties, I flirted a lot with a wide range of beauty brands and Elizabeth Arden was one of them. Back then, all the magazines raved about their Eight Hour Cream and I bought it…and it was okay…but not spectacular. Instead, my skin loved their Visible Difference range. Fast forward a couple of years and I started to think that Elizabeth Arden was WAY too mature for me. I still continued to love their Green Tea EDT though 😛 Anyway, I am now in my early thirties and Elizabeth Arden has caught up with me again with their Prevage range and now, their make-up in the form of Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup.
Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup is a creamy-based foundation in a compact complete with make-up sponge and mirror for ease of application when you’re on the go.
The packaging is somewhat luxe with the gold, silver and iconic red door…but I think it isn’t sexy like YSL’s gold packaging.
As for the foundation itself, it provides a medium to full coverage and it’s a bit heavy for me as I don’t like to feel that I am wearing heavy make-up. It is also heavily scented with floral notes so it isn’t to everyone’s cup of tea.
However, after saying all that. I actually like it…but not as a full face foundation. I prefer to use it as a concealer to cover heavy dark circles and eyebags and red raging spots. It works really well as a heavy duty concealer due to its creamy nature and ability to mask imperfections. It can blend easily using finger tips or with a concealer brush. And because I am only applying it selective areas, it doesn’t feel heavy and the strong scent doesn’t annoy me.
