Love it: Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup

As I’ve said many a time on this blog - and in real life - I’m incredibly low maintenance when it comes to my daytime beauty routine, which usually involves a BB cream or tinted moisturiser, a little NARS Laguna and mascara. If I have a meeting to go to I will go as far as maybe a dusting of pressed mineral foundation, or other foundation formulas I can pack up and take with me if I need and are super quick to apply.
One of my newest foundation faves is actually a cream formula as opposed to powder, and is the new and improved version of Elizabeth Arden’s oft obsessed about Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup. The original was a big hit worldwide almost from the minute it hit the counters, but this version takes something great and makes it that much better - and adds updated packaging to boot.
The reformulated Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup has an incredible creamy texture that glides on so easily you can barely feel that its there, but makes a major difference with just a few swipes of the sponge. Infused with micronised diamond powder, it’s now a true light-reflecting foundation, manipulating and scattering light to diffuse the look of any imperfections that may be lurking. Your skin looks much more even in tone with the lightest of applications, and the likes of fine lines, pores, blemishes, scars and dark spots are softened and smoothed out like you wouldn’t believe. It is also pretty long wearing, which gets the big thumbs up from low maintenance me.
The foundation comes in a double-deck compact that is great for travel and handbag friendly, just pop open the top cover to reveal the cream foundation and a mirror, and flip up the bottom level for a contoured application sponge. Love that! For a more opaque look apply it with a dry sponge, or for a slightly sheerer finish wet the sponge to thin out the texture and build wear you need it.
It is on counter right now in eight shades - including three new ones - with an RRP of NZD $69.00.
