Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Perfectly Nude Makeup SPF15 Review

When it comes to new foundations I love to try them,  for there is nothing better than creating a perfect base or canvas for the makeup that will follow.. As it happens I am almost at the end of all three of my current foundations and so I am looking to purchase a new one very soon. I could repurchase one I have already tried but it is really rather fun trying new ones, especially as they tend to be 'new generation' or with the latest buzz word.

I popped to the Elizabeth Arden counter to try their latest foundation as I had seen some adverts and a couple of people had mentioned that they liked it. I have never tried a foundation from Elizabeth Arden so I was particularly keen to find out more. I liked its name - Flawless Finish Perfectly Nude Makeup SPF15. Now who doesn't wish for a flawless finish with a product that looks like it is barely there?

The lovely lady on the counter (she really was rather nice) told me that the finish was medium/full as I told her I was looking for good coverage as I need it for my rosacea (on the cheeks) I later found out (first by trying it and then reading on the EA website) that actually it is a light to medium coverage product. However she did colour match me and gave me a sample to take away.

I was matched with shade 05-Natural

Elizabeth Arden say 

Makeup that feels like your skin, only better.

• Natural Radiant Finish

Light, breathable formula moisturizes skin for 24 hours*, and smoothes on seamlessly for a naturally luminous look that lasts all day. Proven to minimize the appearance of pores immediately and over time with continued use. Hydro-pigment colour technology, vitamins and antioxidants protect and perfect, so skin looks beautifully even-toned and flawless.

My thoughts 

This fluid foundation has a lovely silky texture that literally melts and disappears into the skin. It leaves a beautiful, radiant finish. However, as I was told it was a full coverage foundation I was expecting it to cover blemishes and my rosacea which of course it didn't. I was able to add to the areas that needed extra coverage with no problem at all. The foundation is light and virtually undetectable. It lasts a good 6+ hours and that is with the fact that I suffer from hayfever and usually look pretty ropey. It smooths fine lines and evens out skintone and hides pores well. 

I liked this foundation a lot, it is good for the Summer months although a higher SPF would have been welcome. I think it photographs nicely too, see below. I would consider purchasing this foundation.
