Why It’s Time To Start Using A Compact Foundation

By  |  0 Comments

Gone are the days when powder foundations sat on top of your skin, clogging pores and feeling heavy. There’s a new breed of compact foundation that is perfect for all skin types, whether oily (they actually absorb excess oil), dry or even mature skin. After many years of gloss, glow and highlight, these new-and-improved formulations are taking centre stage and for good reason – they’re amazing.

The new technology combines a powder and a cream foundation to create a bouncy gel-like makeup that melts into your skin giving it a seamless finish that doesn’t crease in fine lines – winning! 

When I was sent Elizabeth Arden’s brand new Flawless Finish Everyday Perfection Bouncy Makeup I decided to put it through its paces to see if it truly lived up to the hype.

Take a look at my short video below to see what happened.

Product: Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Everyday Perfection Bouncy Makeup

What is it: This makeup is formulated with a network of polymers to move with your skin. It also contains essential oils and antioxidants to help brighten the skin and blur imperfections.

Why it’s unique: The bouncy formula is a hybrid of a powder and a cream in a gel format, leaving skin with a soft, naturally luminous finish. 

Key ingredients: Jojoba oil helps to rebalance the skin, peppermint oil leaves your skin feeling refreshed, ginseng which is a rich antioxidant and the caffeine effectively wakes up the skin. The other ingredient is hyaluronic acid which helps to plump up the skin.
