Elizabeth Arden's Pure Finish Mineral Powder FoundationFriday, January 30, 2009
I love trying out new foundations. Why? I'm not sure. I'll find one I like, buy it a few times, then I get allured by new things out there. I guess that's why I have this blog!
So, when I heard about the new foundation from Elizabeth Arden I was excited to try it out. I've had some good and some bad experiences with mineral makeup. But, I've always had great success with Elizabeth Arden. I was hoping to have results like my previous L'Oreal success, but maybe with easier application.
Overall, I found this new Elizabeth Arden to be a great foundation. It comes in a really great compact. The foundation itself is a pressed powder, but if you look carefully there is a metal plate over it. You can get the makeup by running a brush over the metal plate for a small amount of foundation, or you can twist the plate and it will scrape up some foundation for you! This gives you a lot of control over how much foundation you get and where it goes. While the foundation comes with a powder puff, I also used a brush for more coverage.
The foundation itself is fantastic. The coverage is very buildable, blends very easily and the finish is very natural. With the enclosed puff the coverage is very light. I got medium coverage using a small brush, I'm sure you could use it for fuller coverage as well if you want. I found that the foundation lasted easily all day, without the typical mid-afternoon issues that many foundations have.
This is a foundation I can definitely recommend! Check it out next time you're on the market for foundation.
