REVIEW: ELIZABETH ARDEN Pure Finish Mineral Powder Foundation

/
Nothing beats coming home to a package! Especially a package thats got MAKEUP awaiting you!
Elizabeth Arden sent me Elizabeth Arden\’s new Pure Finish Mineral Powder Foundation for a review.

The last time I got sent for an Elizabeth Arden product review, I wont lie, I didnt like the product. Ok well not that I didnt like it, I just never saw much (or any) results. So I didnt bother blogging about it.
But I was too darn excited to try out this new Mineral Powder! Infact, I got it yesterday evening and immediately used it on two ladies for their trial makeup. It was amazing! SO NATURAL looking! and today I started using it!! It comes with a really cute tiny brush, but PElizabethArden was sweet enough to send me the full sized brush too (OMG SOFT!) So I decided to keep the brush for the use on my clients and the lil powder puff for use on my own skin as I always prefer a heavier coverage.

You know how media releases of ANY product always makes you go WOW by just reading it, well rest assured, this powder PROOVES it too.

So basically its a pressed powder below this \’grinder\’, and you twist it, and the powder gets nicely grounded, so you get just the right amount, each time. I know when dealing with loose powder, it can get very hectic. Ive had instances when clients accidentally topple over my whole tub of loose powder and everything goes to waste. 🙁
So this little design is a very unique and waste-free design! I LOVE IT!

Do check out the Elizabeth Arden counters for your shades! My perfect shade was #2!! So fret not if you\’re a lil darker/tanned, cuz they have up to shade #9! 🙂

DISCLAIMER: Product was sent to me for a review, and I did not pay for it. Im not obliged to say anything nice for the review, so whatever you read, are my own honest opinions.

MY THOUGHTS: I have been using MAC\’s studio fix for pretty much all my makeup life (thats about the past 5 years?) and when I go to work on most days, I just slap on concealer and powder. and by mid day, 12pm, my skin looks oxidised and dry cuz Im in the airconditioned room. With this new Elizabeth Arden powder, I KID YOU NOT.. my skin looked fresh even at 5pm! I was AMAZED. I merely touched up my gloss and was on my way out. I will be continuing to use this for another week but so far, I like what I see. The only thing I DISLIKE is the size. TOO bulky to fit into most small sized makeup pouches.
RETAILING at SGD58.00

WILL I BUY IT AGAIN? YES! In fact I want to buy the various shades, darker tones especially to use on my darker/tanned clients! Im simply in AWE!
