A few weeks ago I went to an event for the launch of some of the products that Elizabeth Arden were launching. Amongst those was the Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer.

This primer is in part skincare, as it also has so many skincare benefits. It has a time-released technology that helps balance the skin by maintaining moisture in the skin and help control shine by absorbing excess oil for a shine free complexion. The primer is thus designed to help make the skin the perfect canvas to not only make the skin look better, but also to extend the wear of the makeup.

The primer instantly makes the skin appear and feel incredibly soft and smooth, diminishing the appearance of pores and fine lines, by simply filling out the skin. At the same time, the primer also blurs any discolourations making the skin tone more even thanks to a triple blurring complex with a light diffusing technology. And it does all of this while giving the skin a healthy glow. So you can actually just use it on its own without makeup on top, if you like, and you'll still both see and feel the benefits.

The Primer is silicone beads, which you can feel when you apply it to the skin, but unlike many other silicone based primers which I often feel clog up my pores quickly making my skin feel congested, this is not the case with this primer. The primer comes in an easy to use tube and the actual primer is skin toned. You only need a tiny amount, and as soon as you swipe it over your skin, it absorbs living the skin silky smooth and soft, like no other primer I've tried before.

And what I really like is that following my foundation is so much easier to apply, it simply glides onto my skin afterwards, and I feel that I need to use significantly less foundation for a more flawless look that stays that way throughout the day without the need for the usual mid-day touch up.

I really enjoy using this Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer from Elizabeth Arden, and as it is oil-free and non-comedogenic, it is perfectly suited to my combination skin prone to breakouts, and while I have not noticed any of the long-term skincare benefits, it is making such a difference in both the look and the wear of my makeup, so for me this is definitely a winning product that I'd consider repurchasing.
