When I was asked to review the new Elizabeth Arden Intervene foundation, I must say, I was a little skeptical. I’m not a big fan of liquid foundation, and I didn’t think that in my twenties I would be interested in an anti-aging makeup.
After trying it out, I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised. Intervene provided great coverage and was so light, I couldn’t tell that I was even wearing makeup. And the results…well, see for yourself!
This is my before photo. You can tell because I don’t look very happy, and my skin is kind of patchy and tired looking (I have a toddler, so cut me some slack!). Okay, now I’m going to try out this swanky new makeup:
Do I look happy and well-rested or what? Seriously, I’m not entirely sure how the “Biodormin” formula in Intervene works, but it’s made my imperfections virtually disappear. It’s also supposed to help delay the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, firms skin and contains SPF 15 to prevent sun damage. Bonus!
I didn’t get this look with the Intervene foundation alone…I did have a little extra help:
You can get my Elizabeth Arden makeover with a few simple every-day products! From the left:
Crystal Clear Lip Gloss: Had a faint minty scent, lasted long and felt smooth and not too sticky.
Smoky Eyes Powder Pencil in Smokey Black: so precise, I was tempted to do an homage to Amy Winehouse…comes with a spongey applicator on the opposite end for extra convenience.
Ceramide Lash Extendin Treatment Mascara in Black: promises it won’t smudge, flake or clump, and it didn’t for me!
Color Intrigue Bronzing Powder Duo: Comes in a convenient case with a mirror and a brush…great for dusting on your shoulders and chest for a night out.
Flawless Finish Maximum Coverage Concealer: Also comes with a little mirror and helped to hide my tired eyes.
So there you have it…if your current foundation just isn’t giving you the results you are looking for, then you must try out Elizabeth Arden Intervene foundation, available in 12 shades so you’ll be sure to find your perfect match.
