Too Faced Born This Way Foundation Review

Thursday, November 03, 2016 Alexa W 2 Comments

I haven't reviewed or spoken about a new foundation in what feels like really. Every one I've tried has been based on drugstore recommendations for oily skin, which just weren't doing the trick for my skin. But now, I feel so much better and more confident in my makeup skills when I use this as my base!

This is Born This Way Medium to Full Coverage. I purchased this on somewhat of a whim in New York over the summer, as I trawled Sephora with my to-buy list in hand. This is quite pricey at $39. 

Here it is in all it's glory, the packaging is gorgeous and I love this brand purely for their aesthetic and  also their ethics in terms of animals...

You get about 50ml which is a decent size as one dollop should cover your whole face. As for medium coverage, you will need to layer up a bit, but don't worry, this is lightweight and dewy so it won't cake up unless you put layers of powder over the top.

Here is a swatch on my hand, as you can see there is quite full coverage but it's very creamy so with any brush this will blend like a dream. There is a light scent but it does feel very luxurious on the skin.

And blended in, almost undetectable which they claim on the bottle. I would say this is actually true, as only up close can you tell Im wearing foundation. The finish is demi-matte but do prime, set etc if needed as it won't stay put all day without these.

Keep in mind my bathroom has good lighting, and over the years I've honed my selfie skills... but this foundation definitely looks good. I have concealer and baked powder over the top, and it really sets into the foundation flawlessly.

I would recommend you guys try it out, or possibly put it on your Christmas list!
