The product

When it comes to splurging on a foundation, we love something that we can confidently wear every day without compromising on our routine. And, it would appear after reading our Review Crew® member reviews of Elizabeth Arden’s latest base offering, that we’re not alone in that sentiment. 

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Skincaring Foundation combines skin loving skin care ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and vitamin E with 24-hour wear and a heat and humidity-resistant formula for long-lasting, lightweight natural-looking coverage. Say hello to glowy, healthy, soft and supple skin. Plus, it’s free from fragrance and parabens, non-comedogenic, and dermatologist-tested, so you can be rest assured that your skin will be loving you for adding this to your makeup routine.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Skincaring Foundation.

The lightweight, natural finish: Members loved how lightweight the natural-finish foundation was, with a number of them saying they appreciated the non-cakey look and that it lasted throughout their busy day.

The skin care-inspired formula: A number of our reviewers said they really noticed the difference between the skin care-inspired formula of this foundation compared to traditional foundations. Some specifically noted how glowy their skin looked due to the inclusion of brightening and hydrating ingredients like vitamins C and E and hyaluronic acid.

The sleek and thoughtful packaging: Reviewers loved the luxe feel of the foundation bottle packaging, with a number confessing they’d left the bottle out as decoration when not in use. Plus, the handy pump dispenser made application a breeze.

The verdict

“Great foundation with 24-hour wear. Really like that it has skincare stuff in it like hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and vitamin E. Makes my skin soft and has a great longwearing, lightweight and natural-finish. Made without fragrance and parabens. Non-comedogenic, dermatologist-tested which is really important to me. Really enjoy this foundation. Love the pump bottle easy to use and pretty to look at. Wears really nicely and is definitely a new favorite!”

“I am in love!!!! I have been looking for a foundation that is light but has full coverage without being cakey! This is it! My skin feels super silky with it on. My pores aren't blocked and my face isn't shiny even after running around all day! I have already purchased a shade darker as my skin is more tan in summer. This is available in so many shades there is a perfect tone for everyone. Price is mid-range and definitely worth it. I found other foundations either left a greasy feel or clogged my pores and this one does not even feel like you are wearing make up.”

“Some mornings I would use my fingertips to apply, other mornings I used a brush or beauty sponge and the product blended beautifully and evenly into my skin each time. The formula is lightweight and very natural looking on the skin and it still gives you great coverage! The foundation wears well throughout the day; it didn't settle into my fine lines and it stayed smooth until the end of my day… Not only is the foundation light weight and natural looking on the skin - but it also gives you a very healthy and gorgeous glow! I absolutely love how my makeup looks and feels when I wear this foundation. It made my skin look fresher and younger.”
