ELIZABETH ARDEN, FLAWLESS FINISH, PERFECTLY FINISH 24HR

Featuring a flawless finish make-up that lasts for up to 24 hours. 

With a SPF15+ factor to the make-up, this Flawless Finish Perfectly Finish Make-up is ideal for if you are wanting that flawless finish to your overall make-up look. After applying this beautiful Flawless Finish, my skin felt and looked super soft-matte giving an "air-brushed" look to my foundation which I was very impressed with. 

This make-up is quite long-lasting thanks to the long-wearing Polymers that acts as safeguards against transfer and fading. I have to say this is by the far one of the best make-up bases I have used so far because the colour match was right on point and suited my skin-tone amazingly well. A great factor to consider when shopping for the right make-up bases or foundations at the Elizabeth Arden counters is that they are able to do a skin-colour match for your skin, so that you use the correct shade for your skin tone. (This is essential for if you don't know your skin tone at all). 

So for this particular make-up, it's infused with transfer resistant technology which means that by having this make-up on for the whole day, it can withstand heat, humidity and moisture. There are also shine control ingredients that are time released to absorb any oil on the skin so that your skin looks fully matte for longer. I love the shine control element to this particular make-up because I tend to get oily bits around my forehead and cheeks due to humidity or simply excess oil, however thanks to Elizabeth Arden's Flawless Finish Make-up, it really helps in making my skin stay super matte all day long. 

The fact that the Flawless Finish Perfectly Satin 24HR has a SPF15+ factor to it makes it even better because you get that little extra sun protection against harmful UV rays to it. The formula is very lightweight, feels of a velvety formula and you get medium to full coverage that blends so easily and evenly onto into the skin. This is the perfect make-up for if you're wanting that flawless coverage that lasts for up to 24 hours and does not clog the pores. 

Overall, after having the make-up on my face for more than 8 hours, I did not feel any greasiness on my skin and this is due to the Vitamin E which ensures that skin stays protected for longer and looks healthier and softer. This particular Flawless Finish Make-up is ideal for those with normal to oily looking skin and is also available in 10 skin-perfecting shades. The fact that the Flawless Finish gives the overall skin a matte-look to the skin, there is simply no need for finishing powder. 

Also contained in the Flawless Finish is actually Bamboo silk which is a natural plant extract that absorbs any excess facial oil that gives you the flawless and shine-free finish. (This ensures that your skin feels light and comfortable to wear all day long). And to add to the list of ingredients, it includes the mineral crystal Mica which helps to blur our any imperfections and minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hence giving you that overall luminous finish to your make-up. 

For the packaging, it comes in a 30ml glass pump which makes life much easier and mess-free when it comes to applying your make-up on. 

Finally, I am so in love with this particular Make-up that I have been using it literally every single day! It leaves my face looking super matte and flawless which is the result I always look to achieve when it comes to my overall finish. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 


ELIZABETH ARDEN, BEAUTIFUL COLOUR MOISTURISING LIPSTICK IN SMOKY PLUM 37 

Elizabeth Arden make the best moisturising lipsticks ever, especially when it comes to their new Beautiful Color Moisturising Lipstick. 


The NEW Beautiful Color Moisturising Lipsticks by Elizabeth Arden are simply luxurious and amazing to use! They contain a blend of skincare ingredients including emollient butters and vitamins such as (Vitamins A, C and E) that all look to condition the lips to ensure that it stays moisturised all day long and the colour lasts for the whole day. It also looks to soothe and protect the lips with its shea butter ingredient.  

The lipstick are super ultra-conditioning and hydrating for the lips that you don't even require a lip balm under the lipstick. Once applied, you'll realise how moisturised and smooth your lips will feel. Did I also mention how pigmented the lipstick was? With just one stroke, you get a nice silky pigment of colour for your lips which is really amazing. There's no need to layer on to achieve a desired colour because with this particular lipstick, it only takes just one stroke. If you're wanting that luxurious wear and the ultimate comfort for a lipstick, then I would highly recommend for you to check out this one!

The Beautiful Color Moisturising Lipstick keeps your lips feeling soft and smooth for longer which is what I essentially love about them. The colour payoff claims to last for about 12 hours but I managed to get about 3-4 hours of wear until eating or drinking which is still quite long lasting for a lipstick. Lips look fuller and more sumptuous which is why I am amazed by this particular range - especially with the shade in Smoky Plum 37. 

The lipsticks are presented in an embossed Red Door logo packaging and housed in a sleek and luxurious gold looking tube with the signature of the Red Door Design. It is quite unique for a lipstick and it just feels very solid to hold. I am definitely satisfied with this product which is why I will be using it for my lips on New Years Eve as we welcome the New Year.

ELIZABETH ARDEN, BEAUTIFUL COLOR NATURAL EYE BROW PENCIL IN BROWNETTE 03

Create ultra-fine strokes to fill in, shape and define eye brows for a long lasting look. 

The natural eye brow pencil includes a grooming brush that helps you to shape and blend your natural looking brows. This is a long-wearing eye brow product for your brows that gives you high colour pigmentation and looks very natural. There are actually four shades to suit all types of eye brow colours, so be sure to test it out first to get the best colour match for your brows. 

The grooming brush helps to blend in the product really well making it look very natural and to also help it last all day long. The application is quite smooth as the powder is very silky looking and feels comfortable when applied onto the brows. What is great about the product is that it also includes an antioxidant protection that's infused with Vitamin C and E for antioxidant protection. It's also infused with natural mineral pigments and silk powders which help to create that natural look to your brows. The pencil twists to open, so when not in use you can simply twist to close. 

The colour is also waterproof so that it won't transfer or fade when worn on a daily basis. The product is also fragrance free, paraben free and oil free making this product really gentle and safe to use in the long run. This is definitely my go-to brow product for everyday purposes and so far I am in love with the natural look that it gives to my brows. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 
ELIZABETH ARDEN, CERAMIDE CREAM BLUSH IN, SHADE PINK 

Featuring a luxurious soft cream blush with skin-caring technology, antioxidants, Vitamins A, C and E that visually lifts and contours the look of cheeks, blushing them with a soft and fresh dewy finish. 

I love how this cream blush is so luxurious and soft to apply onto the skin. There are no powders involved so the process is so much cleaner. The Ceramide Cream Blush by Elizabeth Arden looks to glide onto the skin effortlessly and blends evenly without much effort. It also looks to deliver some added moisture to your cheeks and stays nourished for longer. Cheeks are instantly glowing and look very luminous. The fact that this Cream Blush also provides anti-ageing benefits to the skin really makes it a bonus for this product because what kind of blush does that?
