Today on the blog I’d like to introduce you to the newly launched Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Perfectly Satin 24HR Makeup SPF 15;

What They Say:

Makeup that's ready to commit. Flawless matte finish that lasts all day. 24 hours of colour-true makeup infused with transfer resistant technology that lasts through heat, humidity and moisture. Shine control ingredients are time released to absorb oil throughout the day for a flawless look. Available in 7 Shades.

RRP: $50 (30ml) – Available from David Jones and Myer

What I Say:
With combination skin, prone to some breakouts and with some scarring from past acne, as well as increasing pigmentation, it can often be difficult to find the right foundation to cover all my needs. However, the new Flawless Finish Perfectly Satin 24HR Makeup from Elizabeth Arden really ticks all boxes.

The foundation contains Plankton Extract, which helps to control sebum without drying the skin or clogging the pores, as well as time released Encapsulated Spheres monitor and absorb excess oil, which all means that your skin stays beautifully matte all day long, but also without looking dry or dull, thanks to also containing Vitamin E to keep the skin smooth and soft and mineral crystal mica to add glow to the skin.

The actual foundation is lightweight, yet it offers a medium to full coverage that blends quickly and easily into skin. It easily covers any imperfections, but without the foundation looking caked on. I found it easy to apply using either the fingers or a foundation brush, but I’m sure it will be just as easy with a foundation sponge or blender.


The foundation promises to stay put and colour-true for 24 hours without transferring or rubbing off, but I have to say that I’ve not quite put that claim to the test. Generally I apply makeup in the morning and always remove it before going to bed, and let me tell you, being over 34 weeks pregnant means that I am no longer a night owl!! However, I can vouch for the foundation staying put for that period of time, without looking shiny or greasy, and without settling into fine lines or wrinkles. It also stays colour-true as promised, and it definitely doesn’t rub off or transfer, as my little boy’s jumper would otherwise be a proof of that, as he constantly wants to hug mummy!

The foundation also comes with Broad Spectrum Sunscreen of SPF15 to protect the skin from harmful UVA and UV rays.

The foundation comes in a heavy duty glass bottle that makes it look very luxurious. It comes with a pump, which I really like, as it is not only hygienic but it also makes it easy to dispense just the amount of foundation needed

So overall I am so in love with this Flawless Finish Perfectly Satin 24HR Makeup, as it gives me the coverage I need, and stays put all day without making my skin look greasy or shiny, yet while giving me a natural seamless look. If you too have combination or oily skin, and looking for a foundation with a good coverage, then you’ll love this one too!
