Review: Too Faced Born This Way Foundation & Concealer


After using this foundation and concealer for nearly over a month I'm ready to give you all my honest review, I'm a little late to the bandwagon but cannot wait to share my thoughts as this foundation/concealer has been extremely hyped about since its release.

Too Faced Cosmetics Website...
"Born This Way is an oil-free foundation that masterfully diffuses the line between makeup and skin. For coverage so undetectable, you can’t see the makeup and you can’t see imperfections—all that’s left is naturally radiant skin that looks like you were Born This Way."

To me foundation is the most important part of my make up, I could buy everything else from the drugstore and rock it but the base product is something I will always invest in first. I'm in love with the name of this foundation as it truly does deliver a 'Born This Way' look, the coverage is medium to build-able but looks very skin like; feels weightless and looks flawless. What I also love about this product is that it has beneficial skincare ingredients, it contains coconut water, alpine rose and hyaluronic acid that are amazing treats for our skin - I find it so cool that this foundation is a hybrid between make up and skincare!

I suffer with normal/dry skin and during winter it does tend to get worse, but regardless of that when I apply this foundation it goes on smoothly and adds a tone of moisture into the skin - credit obviously goes to the ingredients that have been put into this foundation. My skin instantly looks radiant and youthful, I wouldn't say the finish is dewy' but its not matte' either; it sits in between both which is exactly what I like. If you have oily skin I would recommend wearing a mattifying primer underneath to add longevity just because this foundation has so many moisturising ingredients that may make your skin look greasy instead. I get the best finish when using a damp beauty blender, it gives me a very natural finish with amazing coverage.

The foundation has a total of 18 shades available, I was matched to the shade 'Sand' and for reference I'm between MAC NC37-40.

Onto the concealer which I purchased late last year to match with the foundation, again just like the foundation this concealer is super hydrating under the eyes which is where I mostly suffer with dry skin so this was definitely a treat to my skin. The coverage is not as full as e.g NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer but it does cover up darkness under the eyes and marks around the face very well, the under eyes instantly look super radiant and brightening on the face which I love. I did find it quite hard to find a matching concealer in store, I couldn't find a shade that had the perfect yellow undertone to it but the shade 'Medium' matched the foundation shade in 'Sand' I use the best.
