It’s been all over YouTube, Instagram and other blogs — Too Faced Born This Way Undetectable Medium-Full Coverage Foundation. I rarely join the bandwagon, but as soon as I heard that it has Coconut Water and Alpine Rose in it, I knew I had to try it out. I like makeups that contain unique ingredients like the Pixi by Petra Makeup Finishing Spray that has Rose Water and Green Tea in it (You guys should totally try that out, too! It really is a great setting spray). It’s not everyday that you come across a foundation that has special ingredients in it, right?
The Too Faced Born This Way foundation is infused with Coconut Water “to delicately replenish skin’s moisture levels”, Alpine Rose “to brighten skin’s appearance and promote elasticity” and Hyaluronic Acid “for a smoother, more youthful appearance”.
This foundation claims to be an oil-free foundation that masterfully diffuses the line between makeup and skin. The coverage is so undetectable and skin so naturally radiant they’ll think you were BORN THIS WAY. This also claims to give you that “I woke up like this” look.
I’ve been using this foundation for a month and a half now. I literally used it non-stop for a week and I didn’t have any breakout or whatsoever. I am in love with this foundation. I know, I know, I’m always in love with the stuff that I review, but this foundation just swept me off my feet. I love it so much that I was able to use it everyday for a week and I reach out for this foundation on special occasions or night-outs that I haven’t even touched my MUFE Ultra HD that long!
If you follow me on Instagram, Snapchat or we’re friends on Facebook, you already know that I have oily skin. I’d say one of the challenges people with oil skin encounter is finding a good primer and foundation. This foundation nailed it. So if you have oily skin, this foundation should be great for you, too.
The Too Faced Born This Way foundation is very pigmented which I really like. I sometimes find myself not reaching out for concealer whenever I use this foundation because it just covers all the dark circles, blemishes and whatever imperfections I have.
Here is a photo of my skin with and without the foundation:
and that’s just one pump. Yes, with this foundation, a little does go a long way. Btw, for this foundation, I’m in the shade Sand which is a Medium/Tan with Neutral to Golden Undertones. For reference, I’m an NC42.
As for the finish, even though I have oily skin, I still like a little glow on my face and this foundation does a great job. It has a velvety matte finish so wether you have dry or oily skin, this foundation can do the trick. I love how natural and light it feels on the skin for the amount of coverage you get.
The longevity of this foundation I’d say would be at least 5 hours before you see some oils coming out, but not really a big deal. Just powder the oily parts and you’re good to go. I have used this foundation for 3 night-outs, around 7pm, powdered my face once and my face is still at its best at 4:30am and that is a long time.
Other than the pigmentation, longevity and the foundation’s finish, I am obsessed with its packaging, too.
If I could just cut the chase, I’d say, yes this is a great foundation, go get it.
Sooo, as for the claims, does it replenish the skin? Yes. Does it give a naturally radiant finish? Yes. Is it really undetectable? If you blend it well, yes.
I love using my Beauty Blender with this foundation because I find the finish more natural with it. But if you want a bam! Full coverage! right away, a flat top kabuki brush is the tool to use.
Oh, and you can see there the texture of the foundation, its a bit thick, but watery. If that makes any sense.
Overall, I’d give this foundation 5 stars and would suggest that you all give this one a try, too.

With love and glitters,
