Rated 3 out of 5 by Diamonds I Spoke Too Soon, In My Last Review
I got too excited and wrote my review about the Flawless Finish Satin makeup too soon. However, the only thing that I would change, is my comment about the color. The lighting in the stores makes the colors appear so different than they really are. I thought that I had found the perfect color. But, when I checked myself in other "indoor" lighting and "outdoor" lighting, the color was all wrong. I went back and tried nearly every color on display. A couple of them were extremely light and the others were too dark. Also, I noticed that most of them have pink undertones. I was so disappointed. I really do think that EA has really pretty makeup and I love the way it feels. But, I do not want to have to mix colors to try and get the right one.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Diamond prettiest makeup
EA Flawless Finish is the prettiest makeup there is. I have used it on and off for more than thirty years. I have found nothing that exceeds or equals this makeup for its coverage and pretty finish. The Satin finish is great for oily skin. Even without powder, it is not too oily. However, the powder does help set it and give it its finished look. It feels amazing on the skin. The liquid immediately turns to a silky powder-like finish. It is so easy to apply and blend. It provides great coverage without feeling heavy. I have Rosacea, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. This makeup covers it all. I can not say enough good things about this makeup. I really like the way it smells too. It has a subtle perfume-like smell. I have tried other foundations that have a chemical smell to them. Yuck! This is the only makeup that I have worn and have gotten compliments on. I get compliments every place that I go when I have this makeup on. The only complaint that I, personally, ever had was that I could not find that perfect color. So, I had to use concealers and powders to make the color right. Now, EA has a better color selection and I have found the perfect color. It is Neutral Bisque (I have light/medium skintone with olive undertones). I am just now returning to use this makeup, again. I do not intend to change again. I really do not understand some of the reviews that I read stating that the makeup doesn't last through the day or that it does not blend well. It most certainly does blend well and last throughout the day. I wanted to write this review to let people know how truly amazing it really is. Do not go by the negative comments that some had to say about it. I think maybe, they do not know how to properly apply makeup. Try it and judge it for yourself. I do not think that you will be disappointed. I hope EA never stops making this makeup or changes a thing about it.
Rated 2 out of 5 by JenBee16 Does not blend
This foundation is similar to stage make-up. It does not blend or go on smoothly even with primer. Very disappointed as Perfectly Nude foundation is so great. Really messed up buying this online!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Brimarie Natural, flawless but short-lasting finish
I chose Eleizabeth Arden because I was looking for good coverage without looking cakey as I usually used dermablend. I have a lot of hyper pigmentation from previous acne and a very mild form of acne as well. I found with two coats, this foundation covered quite nicely. It's sounds strange but you almost need to let the foundation sink into your skin a little bit and it looks absolutely beautiful. I do not think it is super long lasting, DEFINITELY use a setting powder. I have pretty normal skin and my face got shiny after about 3-4 hours of wearing it. Lovely finish, natural and flawless. I would reccomend for sure.
