Review: Elizabeth Arden Grand Entrance mascara and Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer

About a month ago, I was very lucky to be invited to the launch of Elizabeth Arden’s Grand Entrance mascara and the Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer.

The Grand Entrance mascara delivers an 80% increase in lash length and volume and a whopping 162% increase in curl. This newbie from Elizabeth Arden is glossy, long-wearing and water-resistant.
The 3-in-1 triangular brush is quite different to my usual mascara brushes but this technology means my lashes are individually coated and separated without clumping and flaking.

I have trialed this mascara for the last month and I definitely see such a huge difference. My lashes are longer, darker and the mascara holds a curl very well. At the end of the day, my lashes are still curled! This is no easy feat with my stubborn, straight lashes. I like using this mascara for everyday – it provides me with the lengthening and darkness I look for in an everyday mascara without giving me spider lashes. Once applied, I can go about my day without worrying about it flaking or smudging.

The Elizabeth Arden Grand Entrance Mascara is available in two shades – Stunning Black and Stunning Brown. You can grab this at all Elizabeth Arden counters – to find your nearest stockist, you can contact 1800 015 500. Available in .3oz, this will set you back $42.00AUD.

Until recently, I never used a primer under my make up. However, I have learnt the error of my ways and will never skip a primer again. I actually have a post coming up about my favourite primers – stay tuned.

The Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer is a silky, lightweight primer that is perfect for all skin tones. The Flawless Start Perfecting Primer smoothes any uneven skin texture, and minimises the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles. This is all thanks to the triple blurring complex with light-diffusing technology. The primer is oil-free and non-comedogenic. Whilst it is silcone-based, the Flawless Start Perfecting Primer leaves my skin with a smooth finish and imparts a very nice glow.

When it comes out of the tube, its beige in colour with a peachy-pink tint but once applied and blended, there’s no distinct colour. The texture is like a mousse but blends easily enough and really turns my skin into the perfect canvas. I have also used the primer on its own as well on my “no makeup” makeup days. It smoothes out my skin whilst controlling my oil skin throughout the day.

After a full day of wear, my makeup is still in tact with minimal oil on my T-zone. I had no need to do my usual touch-ups through the day. Winner winner, chicken dinner!

Again, this is now available at all Elizabeth Arden counters for $48AUD/30ml.
