Hi guys, hope you are all doing well. After the festive season and all the sun and terrible (but oh so good and delicious) eating, one’s skin need some help, right? Even without any bad but delicious food or endless fun in the sun, all that we are after is younger looking, radiant skin. Amen! In the search for a miracle product like such, this gem came up for review. In this post I’ll tell you exact what I thought of it.
Packaging – The gold top is part of Elizabeth Arden’s signature. It screams luxury and quality. The tube is similar to their double wear foundation packaging and is sleek and extremely functional. The opening is just big enough to get enough product out, but not too big to know some will go wasted. I am interested to get to the very last bit of the product to see how I get every last drop from the tube.
Formula – I am going to try my best to describe the formula. This primer has got a silky, balm-ish lightweight feeling. When you squeeze a bit out, it is the color of skin, but when you start blending the product (Oh that is another point, it blends like a dream, but I will get to that in a minute) it goes translucent and sets 100% in about 60 seconds. Now what I love most about the EA Primer is the blank canvas it creates. It fills my pores, blur fine lines, smooth out light texture and allow my foundation to just glide on. It sounds like a miracle product right?
Application – I use the tools that our Heavenly Father gave us. My Fingers! You only need the amount of half a pea size to cover the nose, forehead and cheeks and I even spread it out to the chin. It blends effortlessly and its no hussle at all. You will discover that if you use too much at once it will feel oily and crumble a bit under your fingers. I would suggest rather use less than you think you need, than to use too much and not achieve the greatness it can bring.
I have started this website to share with you the products I have discovered & the mistakes I have made. The things on my whist list and the things that make my heart skip a beat. I love all the things that make a woman feel all girly and would like to share this passion and feeling with all of you.
