Too Faced recently came out with a new foundation called Born This Way. If you haven’t heard already, you live under a rock, but that’s beside the point. And FYI, there is a reason everyone is talking about it.
For reference, I am that girl who will go with almost no coverage in order to avoid people noticing that I am wearing makeup. I often use only concealer or, in the summer, I might wear a tinted moisturizer with SPF and a light powder.
I also have combo skin, not dry but not excessively oily (only a bit in my T-Zone) and typically prefer a dewy look over matte.
This foundation has amazing coverage. It is medium to full and buildable. I have acne scarring on my chin so some days when I am in a rush, I just put on concealer to cover them. I have now realized that the Born This Way foundation covers my acne scars better than my UD Naked Concealer and there’s no need to add any concealer on top when I use it. Seriously, it’s crazy.
Now, I usually avoid most foundations with this much coverage like the plague because they are cakey or too obvious.
But, Born This Way really lives up to it’s namesake because despite the INSANE coverage, it does not look like “foundation” on my skin. It isn’t overly dewy (which really doesn’t look all that natural anyways) but isn’t extremely matte. It looks like skin.
Also important to point out, it lasts. I had gone into Ulta looking for a foundation that would last for my sister’s entire outdoor wedding (Seattle was having it’s hottest summer ever) and was recommended this! It definitely did the trick.
I bought the shade Warm Nude.
I think it looks pretty nice on me, if I do say so myself 🙂
I am honestly wracking my brain to come up with something, but there is not one bad thing I can say about this foundation. From the skin-like finish (my number one priority) to the concealer-like coverage to the lasting power… I can say with confidence that it is the best foundation I have tried to date.
If you’ve tried this too, let me know what you think and if you have any similar products I might like to try!
