YouTube Made Me Buy It: Too Faced – Born This Way Foundation – Review


Usually, I use drugstore brands such as Rimmel, MAX-FACTOR & Maybelline when buying foundations but after watching so many beauty guru’s putting the Born This Way foundation on a pedestal, I just had to buy it and try it out for myself. I’ve had my bottle for a few months now and it’s practically empty so I will definitely be repurchasing as it is without a doubt the BEST foundation I have ever used.

What Is The Born This Way Foundation?

” This oil-free foundation masterfully diffuses the line between make-up and skin. Coverage so undetectable and skin so naturally radiant, they’ll think you were BORN THIS WAY.” – Too Faced

The Born This Way foundation is an undetectable, medium to full coverage foundation which is infused with Coconut Water to replenish skins moisture levels and hydrate the skin. It’s also enriched with Alpine Rose which will help to brighten the skins appearance and promote elasticity. Also, it contains Hyaluronic Acid which works by giving the skin a smoother, more youthful appearance.

First Impressions:

I absolutely love all of Too Faced’s packaging, absolutely gorge! The Born This Way foundation is no different either. It is a 30 ml bottle which comes in a pretty little pink box and inside is a frosted glass bottle with gorgeous gold detailing and writing. It has a black pump dispenser which can also be screwed off. On the bottom of the bottle it says the foundation can be used up to twelve months after opening too.

When I don’t apply fake tan I am very pale and quite fair skinned, I also have pink undertones in my skin so I chose the Warm Nude shade in the foundation because it it is very light and has neutral undertones with will hide the pinkness in my skin, for this reason I didn’t pick a golden or rosy foundation. The Warm Nude shade is probably a shade darker than my natural skin-tone but because I wear a light fake tan, it blends in easily with the rest of my skin. If I was to not wear fake tan I think the shades Vanilla and Porcelain would be my perfect match – next time I think I’ll buy one of those shades.

Another pic wearing the shade Warm Nude. I am also wearing fake tan, blusher and banana powder here.

The main reason why I love the Born This Way foundation is because it makes my skin look more youthful! I’ve just turned dirty thirty and unfortunately, my skin is not what is used to be in my twenties. I have fine lines around my eyes and a deep set wrinkle between my eyebrows which I despise so much and the foundation made them look way less noticeable by deeply moisturising my skin. I reckon I can pass for 25 years old when wearing this foundation, ha ha (wishful thinking) so for that reason alone I absolutely adore it.

You lot know that I have psoriasis and luckily, I rarely get any of it on my face – I don’t get many blemishes or pimples either but I do have a very dull, boring complexion with large pores on my cheeks and this foundation makes my skin look so much brighter, completely conceals my large pores and makes my skin look radiant and glowy. It is seriously just perfect.

The foundation provides a natural coverage and if you choose the right shade to match your natural skin-tone – it will literally look as if you are completely barefaced and aren’t wearing make-up at all. It is super light weight too and it feels like you aren’t even wearing it because the skin feels like it can breathe. I hate heavy foundations that feel suffocating on the skin so this gets a big thumbs up for being light and fresh.

I apply it in the morning time with a beauty blender and it seriously stays on all day and night without fading. It doesn’t oxidise on the skin either and wont make your face look orange / darker after applying

Like I said before, I don’t get many blemishes on my skin so I don’t really need a full coverage foundation so just one layer is enough for me. It is a medium coverage foundation and one pump is enough to cover blemishes but you can build to full coverage by layering as needed.

I tested a little bit out on my psoriasis for you guys to show you how well it covers imperfections. Please keep in mind that my psoriasis are raised.

Before applying Born This Way:

After applying one layer of Born This Way:

This just looks like a white sheet of paper! I’m so pale – ha ha.

The only thing I didn’t like was after a few hours – (I’m talking 12 hours later / at the end of the day) my skin was shiny and oily on my forehead and cheeks which I don’t get as I have dry skin and the foundation is meant to be oil-free. The foundation does stay put all day long nonetheless and the shine is easily removed with a bit of setting powder though, so I’m not really bothered to be honest.

Also when the bottle is nearly empty it won’t dispense any more foundation when pressing the dispenser soΒ I’ve screw mine off and I dip a thin make-up brush into the bottle neck to get all the foundation out which has coated the bottom and sides. Gotta get my money’s worth, hey! I will be buying a new bottle this week and I’m thinking of buying the Born This Way concealer and the Born This Way setting powder too! πŸ™‚

Where To Buy?

I did try to buy the foundation on the Too Faced website but they don’t ship to the UK so I had to get mine here from Debenhams, next day delivery is available. It’s Β£29 to buy and they have a very temptating offer on right now too, so if you spend Β£50 or more on Too Faced products, you will receive a free gift with your order. The gift you’ll receive is Deluxe Sweet Peach Lip Gloss in Pure Peach and the Deluxe Melt-Off Mascara. Very nice indeed, hey! I might have to take them up on that offer, I can’t resist a freebie ha ha!

You can also get it on Amazon UK here*. It is a bit dearer on Amazon UK so would probably be best getting it from Debenhams – but if you have an Amazon Gift Card or something you want to spend, then go ahead. The Born This Way foundation is dispatched and sold by Amazon and not a marketplace seller, so you shouldn’t worry as it is definitely 100% genuine.

If you are from the USA, the Born This Way foundation is $39 and you can shop on the website here. You will get aΒ FREE Hangover Deluxe, Deluxe La Creme Lipstick, & Deluxe Love Flush BlushΒ on ANY purchase over $65!*

Thanks for reading girlies! – I hope my review has been helpful! Mwah!
