Rated 5 out of 5 by from Positively The Best Primer - Let Me Tell You Why I have used Lancome's and Este' Lauder's primers and non of them compare to Elizabeth Arden's Flawless Start Primer. This primer is tinted, but it does not darken my ivory skin. A little goes a long way. I use moisturizers that can cause my skin to be shiny/slick and this primer mattes my skin to a "flawless" state. Sometimes I find that my skin looks so balanced and matte that I choose not to use a liquid foundation - but when I do use a liquid foundation the life of the foundation is lengthened by 2-3 hours because of this primer. Subtle fragrance that disappears in a moment. I am very thankful this was a sample gift in one of my purchases. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent primer So far, after one week, this is the best primer I have ever purchased. It actually has a light color coverage and fills in pores for extremely even appearance. And it makes foundation last all day. I am 62 and have issues with blotchy sun damage and large pores. This product addresses both and frankly I'm relieved. Like everyone else, I am tired of spending money on products that don't really do the job. I have used Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Mousse Makeup since 1988 and this primer works effectively with it. They blend and last all day together. I add corrector and translucent powder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Amazing how something that feels so light and "almost not there" can work so well. I have large pores and a tendency toward red blotchiness, plus now at age 60 I'm starting to see some crow's feet. This primer helps my foundation sit on top of my skin and minimize all those issues. I think I will be using this product from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Provides an Incredibly Smooth Layer For Foundation! Another EA awesome product! I apply Flawless Start Perfecting Primer on top of my EA Lift and Firm Day Cream. It makes my skin feel so smooth and ready for the foundation. I am in my seventies now and have never encountered a product that provides such a silky layer for applying the foundation. I have also used it under a light application of Ceramide loose powder. You owe it to yourself to try Flawless Start Perfecting Primer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than BB Cream I hate make-up. I usually wear a little blush and lipstick but now that I'm 40, I can't get away with being 100% bare faced anymore. I have tried tinted moisturizer and BB cream but they still felt too heavy, so it's money down the drain. The other day, I saw the spend $34.50 and get the free make-up kit so I thought I'd purchase the minimum to get it. After looking at every possible item, I settled on the primer. Although I was .50 off, they let me get the free make-up kit. Long story short, I love it! It comes out dark and thick but goes on smooth, velvety, and colorless. It evens out my skin tone, makes my eyes look less tired, and feels like I'm not wearing anything. For the first in my life, I can actually see myself committing to applying this on my face every morning. It's effortless and there is no worry about uneven color patches along the hairline, jawline, or mismatched ears. I highly recommend it to anyone who hates foundation but want light coverage. Worth every penny, even without the free make-up!
