Too Faced - Born This Way

The expression goes "Don't judge a book by its cover" and you could easily judge the brand Too Faced for being too cute or fun.  Don't let the cuteness fool you.  Too Faced creates amazing products that not only have brilliant packaging but also have innovative formula's. 

I have recently been reintroduced to the brand and my face has been loving their new foundation Born This Way*. 

Born This Way foundation is proof of the quality of products Too Faced make. Born This Way is a beautiful looking foundation that is medium to full coverage.   You can definitely built the foundation without a cakey mask like effect.  

The foundation is oil free and one of those amazing foundations that makes your skin look radiant.  I love the glowy look (we all want to look like J Lo) and Born This Way is the perfect foundation for this kind of skin.  It covers flaws without masking them.  The foundation contains Coconut Water for radiant skin, Alpine Rose to promote elasticity and Hyaluronic Acid for smoother, youthful skin.  So while an adorable and cute brand they have a powerful foundation that makes the skin radiate youth and fights signs of ageing. 

There are 12 shades to pick from,  I have been wearing the shade Warm nude which is a wonderful match (slightly too tanned, what can I say I lived in hope of us getting sunshine).  I always suggest with foundations trying to get a sample (much easier if you live close to a counter) to see if it suits your skin.

Apologies my before and after pictures look more like mug shots.  If you would like a normal looking person doing before and after pictures please check out my pal Karen at Lovely Girlie Bits.  Possibly hard to see in these pictures (because I look like I am auditioning for Orange is the New Black) but my skin has been evened out, reducing the redness around my nose and on my chin and really impressively helping with my dark circles (really impressive considering I have a 1 1/2 year old who likes to sleep on my head).  This makes me very excited for the Born This Way concealer which is coming out to match the foundation.  

I have been enjoying Born This Way so much that I have been using this every day even instead of my beloved Stila (GASP)  I know, I like it that much.  If you have been reading this blog you will know I am Stila's NO 1 fan (yes in an obsessive weird way), they make amazing foundations..... and I have been reaching for Born This Way instead of Stila.

At €35.00 its one of the more affordable premium foundations and definitely worth checking out.  You might not be a fan of Too Faced packaging (and if your not, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? its fricking adorable) but Born This Way foundation should prove to you that the brand is more than adorable products.
