I am pretty darn enamored with Elizabeth Arden Intervene Foundation SPF 15, and that shouldn’t be taken lightly. I am picky, picky, picky about foundation! I tend to want at least medium coverage for my melasma and over pigmented areas, anti-aging benefits, some moisture, SPF, and a formulation that won’t settle into my fine lines and wrinkle (the lack of plural is intentional, I am in denial about any other potential wrinkles). Elizabeth Arden delivers, with a great new foundation aimed at aging skin.
I suspected that I would like it even before it arrived based on these items in the description:
Contains anti-aging ingredients
Contains antioxidants (Vitamins C and E)
Micro-mineral pigment technology
100% oil free
Medium to full coverage
My suspicions were correct. When I tried it, I was quite impressed. The foundation feels wonderful. Coverage is as promised–I would rate it at medium or slightly over medium–but there are no issues with it feeling heavy or settling into lines or my one wrinkle. I also found that it blends quite nicely, and the shade, soft shell, works fine with my very pale skin. The makeup also lasts a full day for me with no problems.
I like the inclusion of anti-aging and antioxidant ingredients in foundations and am pleased to see an increasing number of companies starting to include such formulations. Elizabeth Arden’s offering is definitely one of the best. I will be using the Intervene foundation for some time.
Elizabeth Arden products are available online and at various department and cosmetics stores.
