“ Brand: Elizabeth Arden / Type: Foundation „
This stuff makes incredible claims for itself. It's meant to adjust itself to your skin type, to the weather and to your skin's colour. It's a shame that they say all this stuff about it, because, while it's not as magic as all that, it's actually a pretty good foundation. It's not, however, half as good as Lancome's Photogenic foundation, and it's more expensive. It smells pleasant, goes on smoothly (this is my favourite thing about it; there's some silicone in the formulation, which means it really glides on without being greasy), and covers well without being cakey. It comes in a huge number of shades, and has a SPF of 15, which is great. After a month or so, you may find it starts to seperate in the glass pot. It does say shake well before use, but I still don't like being confronted with a yellow film on my foundation first thing in the morning. The pot is thick and glassy, and makes it look as if you're getting rather more than the 1 fl oz you end up with. However, I suppose it's less likely to break because it's so thick... If you want a foundation which goes on really quickly and doesn't require a sponge, try this. Otherwise, I'd go for something else.
