Review: Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer

Having posted so many blog entries in relation to food, it’s fair enough to have a change in the scenery. Instead of blogging about food today, I shall do a review on Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer. This is the precedent product for Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Good Morning Retexturing Primer as the latter has been discontinued.

I had stocked up quite a bit of the Good Morning Retexturing Primer from Andrea during their warehouse clearance sale in September. When I tried out the sample of their Instant Perfecting Primer, I was sold. I liked the texture and consistency so much better. But thankfully, I got the Good Morning Retexturing at a cheap deal at two for S$30 only.

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer

Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Good Morning Retexturing Primer has been one of my holy grail products since years ago. When I was first introduced to this product, I didn’t really like it. However, that was because I didn’t get the dose right and my face ended up looking all greasy and shiny. I reduced the dose and the amount worked well. I liked the matte finishing that my skin felt after application and I had been using the said product for years.

The improved version however is a bit different compared to the previous one, both in terms of texture and finishing. The texture of Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer is more on the powdery side and in skin color. It works quite like a BB Cream but without SPF coverage and drier in texture.

I liked that the product gives a smooth, natural and velvety finishing. Despite that the product comes in skin color, it doesn’t leave your skin looking as if it had been heavily made up. The product has no fragrance hence making it suitable for those who doesn’t like heavily scented makeup product.

Some may wonder how to use this product. I am no makeup junkie but as much as I know, primer is supposed to go on your face before you slap your makeup products onto your skin. This one however is to be used as your last step of makeup. I use it as my last step of my morning skincare routine as I don’t use makeup.

So, here’s what I think of Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer in a nutshell:

Pros:
1. Fragrance free.
2. Leaves a smooth, natural and velvety finishing on the skin after application.
3. Comes in skin color for a natural look finishing.
4. Doesn’t break out on my skin.

Cons:
None that I could think of.

Overall Rating: 5 out of 5

Price: B$60

Repurchase? Definitely! As a matter of fact, I had stocked up on my second.
