My newest fav foundation award goes to Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Mousse Makeup ($34)! Having been burnt in the past by products like Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam I wasn’t sure I was ready to take on another mousse makeup. Dream Nude Airfoam totally dulled my skin and was just terribly sheer and messy to apply.
Now…I won’t say the Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Mousse Makeup isn’t messy because it is slightly however, the coverage it provides and its ability to brighten up my duller skin make it a win!
Available in 12 shades, Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Mousse Makeup is an air infused mousse foundation. Yes, it does squirt out of a can like a hair mousse and does have the foam whipped up mousse consistency of one too. I think its kinda a novel idea having a mousse formulated foundation.
Aside its unique formulation the coverage and brightening ability is also a plus. I do find the texture slightly messy. It kinda pops and fizzes when you dispense it. As it breaks down it becomes more of a runny creamy texture with small air bubbles in the mix. I typically dispense it on the back of my arm and use a flat foundation brush to apply it. It does need to be shaken well prior to dispensing as I noticed it the pigment color separates from the base when I don’t shake it well.
Color is at first sheer but buildable. It covers minor imperfections, evens skin tone, and brightens up my entire face with very natural, translucent breathable coverage. It is one of those foundation products that gives the appearance of a second skin finish with a very natural, seamless finish. Color doesn’t cake, nor does it cling to drier areas. It’s a very soft, smooth finish with a slightly satiny texture that feels soft on my drier skin. The coverage is very breathable and gives your complexion that your skin but better appearance.
I personally don’t need a tin of coverage as I don’t have blemishes or redness. However, I do rely on my foundation to brighten up my duller skin and even out my entire complexion. I really like how well this brightens my entire complexion up and provides just the right amount of coverage to even out my skin. And if I need extra coverage? I can build it very easily and it still looks natural and feels lightweight no matter how much I apply.
The wear is a little shorter for me at just four hours and fading a fair bit into hour five but I’m not sure I entirely mind as most bases that aren’t BB Cream formulated tend to wear a shorter time for me.
Overall, Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Mousse Makeup provides beautiful weightless, natural coverage and gives my skin a lovely finish!
