What sets you off the most as to how people wear makeup? I think majority would say it's when somebody's base makeup doesn't match their skin. Nowadays, it's not just a matter of lighter facial skin tone that I normally see, it's even the facial temperature (warmer = yellow & colder = pink) that doesn't match the neck! Thank goodness for makeup brands that truly invest so much into their R&D to give us our perfect match. And I'm not just talking about a range of 20 skin tones, I'm talking about a tool that can help you find your perfect match!

Just this week, I visited the new MatchMaker Lounge of Elizabeth Arden in SM Makati to give this tool a try. 


Kezo, the accommodating beauty consultant who assisted me, did my match-making procedure with a high tech gear. 

This matchmaking gear checked my skin tone in three areas, jawline, lower cheek and upper cheek to assess what's my perfect foundation match.

And voila! Result was Beige 09 Flawless Finish Perfectly Satin 24HR Foundation

Now, to see if this really is my shade, Kezo went ahead and applied that foundation on my face and did a quick ten-minute makeup.

Looks like Elizabeth Arden found my perfect match!

There are the EA makeup Kezo used on me. Let me give a brief review of each.


Visible Difference Primer
This light primer has a blend of Vitamin A and botanical extracts, just what our skin needs to prime it without weighing it down.

Flawless Finish Perfectly Satin 24HR Foundation
I wore this until 10pm and yes, it lasted me a day of no retouch! The climate resistant technology lasts through heat, humidity and moisture. I also learned that the formula has shine control ingredients that are time released to absorb oil throughout the day. 

Beautiful Color Precision Glide Eyeliner
With this soft creamy eye liner, it's easy to line and define eyes. It was not as jet black as I prefer it to be, but it's build able so you need to do a couple of layers to get intensity. The built-in smudger and sharpener makes this one perfect for travel kits. The 14 hour wear promise was superb! 

Beautiful Color Natural Eye Brow Pencil

This ultra-fine pencil made it possible to draw hair-like strokes to fill in, shape and define eye brows. It includes a grooming brush that shapes and blends.

Beautiful Color Radiance Blush
I tried Blushing Pink shade and upon application, it's color-true and highly pigmented. It instantly gave a natural, radiant glow. It has optical diffusers that instantly blur the look of fine lines.

Ceramide Ultra Lipstick
I wore the shade Rouge and for a red lipstick, this one's a winner! Lustrous, color-saturated and infused with Volulip, this lipstick delivers brilliant moisturizing color with lasting comfort and shine. I have a new favourite!
