REVIEW: Elizabeth Arden Perfectly Nude Foundation


Hello everyone!

I recently purchased Elizabeth Arden's Perfectly Nude Foundation in the shade 02 Albaster. It's the only foundation I've found that perfectly matches my skin tone.

It's a very light coverage foundation, which honestly I like. I have clear skin naturally so don't feel as though I need to cover up. It goes on very smoothly without having to blend for hours on end, and using a miracle complexion sponge achieves a streak-free finish.

Update May 2017: I have used this up and will not repurchase it. When I bought it, I hadn't looked into whether or not Elizabeth Arden test on animals. They do, and I don't want any more of my money going towards that! Please know if animal testing is against your morals that this brand do test on animals.


The shade is perfect for me, which is rare considering my skin tone is a mix of 'ghost', 'vampire', and 'dead body'. They carry a large range of pale shades (I can't speak for darker shades, as they certainly didn't pick any of those out for me to try. If you're interested in a darker shade, have a look online or better yet find your local Boots and ask to be colour matched).

The packaging is very nice. After being colour matched, I ordered mine online. It came in a box stuffed with bubble wrap and air bags to make sure the glass bottle stayed intact, as well as a free sample of their perfume. I like a glass foundation bottle. Do I panic every time I put my bag down if I'm carrying it around with me? Yes, but it adds a touch of luxury. It also has a pump top so you don't waste any product. One pump is enough to do my entire face, with enough left to blend down my neck.



The only sticking point for me is the price. At £29 a bottle, it's not cheap. I'm a college student, so prefer something a little less pricey, but at the end of the day I adore this foundation and I'm happy to spend that much. Especially considering I don't use a lot of it so I think it will last me a while.

All in all, I think the Perfectly Nude foundation from Elizabeth Arden is a lovely product, and I'm happy to recommend it to my readers.

Have you tried this foundation? What do you think?

  1. I've heard lots of good things about this foundation for us pale ones, but the price tag does put me off slightly. I've found that Rimmels 'true match' in ivory is just about light enough for me but I'm not too keen on the texture
