FIRST IMPRESSION | BORN THIS WAY

Hi everyone! I’m a little late on the bandwagon, but I wanted to share my first impression of the Too Faced Born This Way foundation.

I purchased this at Sephora for $48CAN in the shade Ivory.

I started with the Becca Backlight Filter Primer as my base. I’ve heard this foundation is a natural finish (confirmed: it is), and I like a little glow. I only set the areas of my face that I applied concealer.

PROS

  • Looks natural (not cakey at all)
  • Is not oily or drying
  • Long wearing (six hours and still going strong!
  • Bronzer and blush applied well on top of it
  • Didn’t cling to dry patches

CONS

  • Majority of the shades are very yellow-based, which may leave out some of our cooler-toned girls! I’m neutral and made the colour selection work
  • Rubbed off around my nose

 

BornThisWay

All around, I was happy with this foundation and will continue to use it. However, it’s certainly not my holy grail due to the lack of glow!

What are your favourite foundations? I’m always on the look for a new one.

Thanks for reading xx

  1. I may have to give this a try. I’ve been using a compact by Merle Norman, it’s a little cakie. Their is also one I’ve been wanting to try but Doir.

    Do you do glossy box or anything like that?

    • I have heard such good things about Dior foundation! As well as Chanel. I’ve never tried foundations from either brand. I have an ipsy box subscription (a little mediocre) and a luxe box subscription, which only comes once seasonally!
