Really soft and silky face
Hello After the first application, my face felt really soft .It was not greasy .It was tinted which was great , as I did not expect this . I looked younger and received compliments from my colleagues at work Thank you .I will buy this again.
This product feels amazing when you put it on your skin -- stunning, smooth application and definitely gives a good primer. I need to use more of the product than I thought I would for each application, so it won't last me as long as I originally thought; that would be my only criticism.
Absolutely love this!
This is the best primer on the market by far...it goes on so smoothly, leaving your skin feeling so silky smooth, and hiding any imperfections. ... I have been using it over the summer without anything on top... it gives my skin a lovely clear look.
Having never used a primer before I was slightly sceptical about this product. Needless to say, I love it! The primer is light and fluffy to apply and made my face feel ready for foundation, it was actually silky smooth before I had any make up on. Most importantly this product did not leave my skin looking shiny and I still had a flawless matte finish at the end of the day. I would definitely recommend this product and will be keeping it in my make up bag.
Thank you for inviting me to try your new product .I am sorry to say that I found the Flawless start made my make up look very dull and like a mask ,however I tried mixing it with with my moisterurizer and it looked perfect under my foundation I like the new super start product . Thank you for letting me try Flawless Start.
I am usually not a big fan of wearing foundation on my skin, and don't wear often, as I usually find it quite 'heavy' on top of my moisturiser. That being said, in winter I rely on foundation much more-and using this primer has made it such a pleasant experience! The primer really evened out my skin tone,and I was able to use a lot less foundation-in addition it lasted the entire day into the evening (Christmas! ) festivities-I didn't even have to touch up which is a win!i uses it mostly on its own however,and my skin felt soft and supple,it really feels amazing and it definitely evened up my skintone and closed up my pores. The only thing is that I do use slightly more than I would usually-which may mean you go through more product than usual. Overall would definitely repurchase and recommend this product!
the lightest, silkiest product I have ever used
I have always been impressed with Elizabeth Arden products and this primer does not disappoint. I'm not a regular makeup wearer and wore this for the majority without foundation for the past 3 weeks. It makes tiny thread veins around my nose less visible and gives my complexion a more youthful glow. This is the lightest, silkiest product I have ever used. Also I have dry sensitive skin but had no dryness or sensitivity using this primer. This will definitely be a part of my daily routine in the future.
Hi, thank you for introducing me to this fabulous Elizabeth Arden Primer. I am 48 years of age and have never used a primer before, I have to say it's amazing! It has such a wonderful texture to it and easily glides on to my skin. It makes my skin feel incredibly soft & a perfect base for make up. In fact I've noticed that my compact powder foundation stays in place all day, so much so when I look at myself hours after applying my make up my skin looks remarkably fresh and it's a pleasant surprise! I really don't want my sample to end but when it does I'll definitely be buying a new one.
New Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer
What a pleasure to apply this smooth and silky New Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer! I have used other primers in the past, however, find this one to be very easy to apply evenly all over my face, without it getting cloggy or sticky. Hardly any fragrance, which I appreciated. I have used it over moisturiser and under various different types of foundations including mineral powder, also blending it with a little tinted moisturiser. I like the fact it does have a slight tint, as this helps even out the skin colour tone, hence aiding the longer lasting flawless finish. The amount required does vary depending on the type of foundation used, (in addition to a good skin care routine). Now in my early 60's, it was really nice to be able to have my foundation looking smoother on my face, rather than disappearing into little lines which look like the tide has gone out and left those ripples of sand on the beach! Overall, I really like using this primer and the effect it gives. Thank you.
Thank you Elizabeth Arden!
After using Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer on a daily basis, I have noticed a difference in how long my foundation and other makeup stays on my face. From the first time using this primer my skin was instantly smoother,matt and over a short period of time evened out my skin tone and reduced redness around my nose and cheeks. As a oily/combination I am always on the look out for a primer for my skin that will mattify without drying out my skin or make my foundation application cakey! Troubles i have found with other primers! Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer is not only great for my skin as a treatment but also helps make up last longer and also increased the quality of my foundation, truly a flawless and professionally airbrushed finish ! I found I only needed a small fingertip amount that covered the entirety of my face and then some! This means for me the product will last a lot longer and also shows the quality of the product. My hunt for the perfect primer has ended, thank you Elizabeth Arden!
Instant Perfecting Primer
I’ve been using Instant Perfecting Primer and I can really see a big difference. My skin is super soft and feels like fine velvet. The product is real pleasure to use, it is easy to apply and has a very nice scent. I very rarely use tinted moisturiser and with this product it almost wasn't needed because my skin has even appeal and minor blemishes were nicely covered. I think that the product would probably go a long way because only a drop covers up a large skin area. I think I will carry on using it and will recommend it to my friends.
Flawless and luminous
I have been using instant perfecting primer only when I go out underneath a tinted moisturiser. The first time I used it I was going out with friends and one of the male friends commented on how young I looked and asked me what I had had done and I replied that I had been using this new primer and he said that it must be working ! I feel that you only need a small amount and it creates a silky base unto which you can then apply make up for a flawless finish. The skin looks flawless and luminous . I shall always have to buy this product in the future as I imagine that I will come to rely on it . I am glad that I did the trial. Thank you. Valerie
A very effective product!
I had never used a face primer before but I will certainly be using this one again! I have been very impressed with the results. It went on very cleanly and easily and made my skin feel really soft. This meant that my foundation glided on and I also noticed my T zone was not shiny by lunchtime whereas without this primer it would have been. A very effective product!
I've been using the Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer on a daily basis and I really like it. I've used other primers and took a break from using Porefessional (Benefit) to try this one out. My skin tends to freak out when I use new things at first, but this was a seamless transition. My skin hasn't been oily at all, the foundation has stayed put and it has a great finish to it. I'll definitely switch to this product once the tube runs out. I also use the eight hour day cream after washing my face, let it soak in completely and then apply the primer. Love it.
What a great product!
I was very sceptical about a primer being any different to all the others that I have used over the years, so I was coming at this from a rather hard angle. At first I thought it a rather odd colour and it might end up conflicting with my foundation, so reluctantly I smoothed it onto my face, and bang what an amazing texture, it makes your skin feel like velvet. I have never felt anything like it! The tint was lovely too and evened out my skin tone nicely and did not conflict with my foundation at all. Furthermore, I discovered that it has made my foundation and blush stay on so much longer, often not needing to be touched up. What a great product, well done Elizabeth Arden, so nice to have something new and good. Thank you!
I absolutely loved this primer - it feels like silk to apply and creates an attractive glow, but sadly, although I didn't apply it near my eyes (having moisturised first I suppose it travels), my eyes came up red and puffy, then went dry and peeled. I have found the same with other Elizabeth Arden products that I've used recently - even some that I've used a great deal in the past without problem, so maybe the formula has changed to include an ingredient common with the primer? The only product I don't have a problem with is the Eight Hour range, so will stick to that in future.
Absolutely love it!
I absolutely love this. It feels amazing to apply and feel so smooth onto my skin. I do find that I need to use more than a pea size amount so I am not sure how long the product will last . On a positive note - it certainly is a brilliant base for my foundation. I like the fact that it seems to provide an even base for my foundation without creating any additional moisture and therefore a matt base to start with . I was also was impressed with the way it dealt with very fine lines resulting from aging. I would defiantly buy this produce and will continue to use it.
To be perfectly honest, when I first started using "Flawless start instant perfecting primer" I thought it made my skin feel a bit tight and dry. However, I soon realised that the dryness was due to the sudden change in the weather with strong, cold, winter winds. After a few weeks of use I can genuinely say that I love it! It does what the name suggests and leaves my complexion "flawless!"
10 out of 10!
Well what can I say about this product. Just amazing! I have given this product a 10 out of 10 for the sheer simplicity of use and giving an amazing base for my make up. Incredibly at age 62 I feel it smoothed out my "laughter" lines and gave me a warm glow. Thank you for sharing this product with me, definitely on my Christmas wish list.
Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer
I love the feel of this primer on my skin and it makes it feel so soft and smooth. My tinted moisturiser doesn't usually last all day but now that I am wearing the primer it stays put. It makes my skin look more even and it can be worn on its own for when you don't want to wear make up, say for exercising. I haven`t noticed an improved texture yet. However it does give my skin a nice sheen so I will definitely continue to use it.
