Too Faced Born This Way Foundation Review

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation Review

Recently Too Faced launched the Born This Way Absolute Perfection Foundation. Before the launch, Too Faced spent a lot of time talking about how this foundation was game changing. I love Too Faced, but I was skeptical. There are so many foundations out there that claim to give you a flawless natural look and few live up to the claims. Considering how much I do love Too Faced and the good luck I have had with most of their products, I still wanted to give it a try.

Claims: “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.”

Continue reading the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation Review!

More details from Too Faced:

  • Medium-to-full undetectable coverage
  • Oil-free
  • Coconut Water helps delicately replenish skin’s moisture levels without overhydrating—for the look of radiant skin
  • Infused with the resilient Alpine Rose to brighten the skin’s appearance and promote elasticity
  • Hyaluronic Acid helps balance skin for a smoother, more youthful appearance
  • For medium coverage, apply a small amount from the center of the face outward and blend with fingertips, sponge, or brush. Build to full coverage by layering as needed.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua) (Eau), Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Isododecane, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Hexyl Laurate, Dimethicone, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Magnesium Sulfate, Diphenyl Dimethicone, Tribehenin, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Polysilicone-11, Propylene Carbonate, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Cocos Nucifera Water, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Rhododendron Ferrugineum Extract, Alcohol, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Lecithin, Pistacia Lentiscus (Mastic) Gum, Butylene Glycol, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Hyaluronate, EDTA, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol. May Contain/Peut Contenir (+/-): Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499).

Pros: Buildable coverage. Easy to use pump bottle. Oil-free. Creamy formula. Blends easily. Very natural and semi-dewy finish. Wears well. Does not crease. Does not stick to dry skin. Cruelty free brand. Vegan formula.

Cons: Online shade selection may be difficult. If you are looking for very full coverage foundation, this may not build to that coverage level.

The Verdict: Too Faced has done it again! The Born This Way Foundation is hands down the best foundation that I have ever used. It’s very creamy, blends extremely well, and has a very natural finish. My skin looked flawless, glowing, and, most importantly, natural. One pump is enough to cover my face for medium coverage, and a second pump builds the foundation to full coverage. I paired it with the Hangover RX Replenishing Face Primer and was really impressed with how smoothly this foundation applied and how long this foundation lasted. At the end of the day, it looked as great as it did in the morning.

This is my new favorite foundation. If you are looking for a gorgeous cruelty free and vegan foundation, definitely try this one!

    I’d love to try this foundation, but I’m cautious as it’s not listed on their vegan products list on their website. Did you correspond with them about the ingredients?

    • Reply Tashina Combs Wednesday - November 18, 2015 at 8:30 am

      I did, and it’s definitely vegan! I’m not sure why, but they don’t keep the vegan list in their FAQ up to date. Some products that are vegan are on the list, some just have “vegan friendly” on the product page (but aren’t on the list), and some vegan options aren’t noted at all. It’s confusing.

  • Reply Stacey E Besser Thursday - October 29, 2015 at 11:35 am

    On their website it doesn’t list this in there all-inclusive list of vegan products. Could it be because it’s new? I just bought it but I’ll have to return it if its not vegan

      Hi Stacey,

      For some reason, Too Faced doesn’t keep the vegan list on their FAQ page up to date. Some products are also noted as vegan on the product page itself while others are not. It definitely makes it confusing at times. If it helps, I talk to the brand often and would never promote a product unless I felt comfortable saying it was vegan.

  • Reply Sineade Monday - September 28, 2015 at 5:22 am

    I was searching the internet about this foundation because I just bought it and love it- but saw glycerin on the ingredients and was panicking I’d just bought a product that wasn’t even vegetarian! Thankfully I see it’s vegan. All I can say is, thank God you’re around!! ?

    (Wishing they’d stop putting carmine in their eyeshadows…)

    I’m not a foundation user but I’m glad this one worked so well for you!

  • Reply Brooke @ Blushing Noir Monday - July 20, 2015 at 10:00 am

    I totally want to try this. I have a hard time matching my skin tone to their foundations so I’ll definitely check it out in store rather than order. Thank you for the tip!!

    I totally want to try this!

    This is great news! I need a good foundation for my dry skin, thank you Tashina.

    I love this foundation too, especially the finish and the coverage!

  • Reply Bailey Sunday - July 19, 2015 at 8:20 am

    The last thing I need is another foundation, but this does sound like a great option!

  • Reply Natalie Loves Beauty Saturday - July 18, 2015 at 8:03 pm

    I really want to try this new foundation, it sounds incredible + how cute is the name? 🙂

  • Reply Phyrra Saturday - July 18, 2015 at 12:10 pm

    What shade do you wear in the line? I’m waiting until they release more shades because Porcelain is too dark for me.

    • Reply Tashina Combs Sunday - July 19, 2015 at 2:47 pm

      I wear Sand. I know they are releasing more shades soon. Hopefully they keep expanding the line!

    I hear that it’s great just not for oily girls like myself. I still wanna try it though ehhe

  • Reply Jessica W. Friday - July 17, 2015 at 6:04 pm

    Love that one pump is enough for medium coverage!

  • Reply Amber Friday - July 17, 2015 at 5:25 pm

    What color are you using and how did you apply it? I was checking this out today at Macy’s and really wanted a sample but they don’t offer them there. Sephora didn’t have it in store.

    • Reply Tashina Combs Sunday - July 19, 2015 at 2:48 pm

      I’ll be posting a demo video soon! 🙂

  • Reply Collective Beauty (@Julie0728) Friday - July 17, 2015 at 2:10 pm

    Sounds great! I used to love their Amazing Face foundation, but I’m not sure if they still make it. I’ll have to get a sample of this!

  • Reply TheFeminineFiles Friday - July 17, 2015 at 12:50 pm

    I received a little sample of this and the formula was great, now I want to get a full size that actually matches my skin tone 😉

  • Reply litfromwithin9 Friday - July 17, 2015 at 12:48 pm

    sounds like a winner! I’m hearing great buzz about this foundation.

  • Reply glamorable Friday - July 17, 2015 at 10:10 am

    Wow, you are really making it sound like a must-have! I will need to try this one, if I can find a good match for my weird complexion.

  • Reply neversaydiebeauty Friday - July 17, 2015 at 9:34 am

    I am dying to try this foundation. I love that it has HA in it too. I’ve been using NARS Luminous All Day Weightless Foundation and I like it because it really is lightweight and it provides almost full coverage. I’d love to try the TF and compare the two

  • Reply Lola Seicento Friday - July 17, 2015 at 8:11 am

    This sounds like my kind of foundation!

  • Reply Taneja's Bride Friday - July 17, 2015 at 7:09 am

    I’ve heard so many great things about this foundation! I’m definitely going to have to find my shade, and give it a go! <3

    This product keeps reminding me of Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation 😛
