I am a big fan of drugstore foundations because I have found a few great ones that I reach for over my more high end options. However, I have found nothing that matches up to the Too Faced “Born This Way” liquid foundation ($39).
This foundation is by far the best foundation I have ever used! I even like it better than the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk liquid foundation that I raved about, and even though this Too Faced one is still a higher end foundation, it is way less expensive than the Armani one.
This foundation can work for ANY skin type- dry, combo, oily, etc. If you are a makeup artist, this is a great foundation to have because it is so universal and looks great on everyone!
Product Description (from Too Faced website):
- Comes in 18 shades (they recently added six new shades!)
- Oil-free formula
- Medium to full coverage
- Demi- matte finish
- Infused with coconut water to give the skin a hydrated look without appearing greasy
- Infused with Alpine Rose to give the skin a naturally brighter look and promote elasticity
- Contains Hyaluronic Acid to give the skin a more balanced and youthful appearance
This foundation is medium to full coverage, but it does not feel heavy whatsoever (so it is still a great everyday foundation) and even when I look up close in the mirror, it does not even look like I am wearing foundation! It just looks like a better version of my own skin! When I am wearing this foundation, my skin and makeup has never looked more flawless. Even though this foundation is not specifically geared towards oily skin types, I still do not get extremely greasy or oily throughout the day. The longest I have ever worn this foundation is about 6 hours, but I think I could still get a good 8 hour wear out of this (I don’t like to wear makeup for longer than 8 hours anyway).
Hopefully this post was helpful for anyone wanting to try this foundation specifically or if anyone is on the hunt for their perfect foundation. This is the best foundation I have ever tried so far, drugstore or high end.
