Well this is an exciting launch to the Too Faced family isn’t it? Too Faced Born This Way Matte Foundation landed on my desk a couple of weeks ago and i have been enjoying playing with it.
Regular readers and followers will know that the original Too Faced Born This Way Foundation is in my top 5 of favourite foundations! It is a constant repurchase and one I share time and time again on my Instagram Lives. So I was interested to see how the Matte version lived up.
My usual shade in Too Faced foundation is Warm Nude and although the team sent me over Warm Beige which is a only little too dark, I actually really like it. I have been showcasing this foundation on Instagram lives and wearing it daily to give it a really good test.
With similarities to the original version in the inclusion of Alpine Rose, Coconut Water and Hyaluronic Acid, this is a very comfortable to-wear foundation. Now, what is interesting is that the USA website offers 35 shades – if you are Almond in Original you will be Almond in Matte – yet the NEW UK site only offers 21 shades with my shade Warm Nude not being available, However the UK site has just recently launched and Cult Beauty does stock the full shade range.
As someone that usually only ever entertains a dewy finish foundation, due to having a VERY dehydrated, mature skin, i am pleasantly surprised by how much i like this. It feels comfortable and hydrating on the skin. Offers a good Medium coverage which you can build a little but too much might cake, and looks incredible in photos. My skin looked smooth, flawless and as this is a 24 hour wear foundation, lasted from application at around 9am until i removed it at about 8pm, with no patchiness at all.
Too Faced Born This Way Foundation Matte offers a “Naturally Flawless, shine free” Look to the skin all day without the need for touch ups. Personally i think this is perfect for wearing under a face mask as it is budge proof, looks beautiful, covers well and on me does not Oxidise. As a side note i love how the two foundations are in different shaped bottles with the Matte being in a more tall slender bottle, so if you have both in your collection you can easily differentiate.
Are you a Too Faced Fan? Do you wear foundation daily? Have you tried Too Faced Born This Way Matte Foundation already?
