A foundation thats undetectable and natural, yet still offers you medium-to-full coverage. Sounds pretty amazing, right? That’s what Too Faced new Born This Way Foundation says it will give you. I know I’m a bit late at bringing you this review, but lets dive right in and see if this foundation lived up to such high claims!
Born This Way Absolute Perfection Foundation
Skin so naturally radiant they’ll think you were born this way.
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.
This revolutionary foundation is infused with a potent combination of coconut water to naturally replenish moisture levels; nature’s resilient alpine rose to brighten the skin’s appearance and promote elasticity and hyaluronic acid for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
My Thoughts on This Foundation
* * For those who do not know, I have very acne-prone skin that gets very oily throughout the day. While I typically have my acne breakouts under control these days (I’m currently pregnant, so that may be contributing to it), I still have a lot of hyper-pigmentation and scars from past acne that I like to conceal when wearing makeup. * *
I was really excited to try out this foundation for several reasons, but I think I was most excited because this is a water-based foundation. Infused with coconut water, no less (fancy, fancy!). I like to use a water-based moisturizer and primer, and those play best with foundations of the same type. Which this new Born This Way foundation is. 🙂
The consistency of this foundation wasn’t a thick mouse, but it wasn’t really liquidy either — it was somewhere in the middle. I applied this foundation using both a brush (flat top kabuki and a smaller all-over face brush) and a sponge, and I liked the results I got from all three. Using a brush definitely gave me more coverage, but using my Beauty Blender gave me the most natural, skin-like finish.
In the picture above I am wearing the Born This Way foundation — I only used concealer below my eyes. I want to stipulate that on the day I took this picture I had no active breakouts going on, but still had the typical hyper pigmentation that I wanted covered. I used a brush to apply and was able to get almost full coverage with just one layer of foundation.
As I mentioned in this picture I shared on Instagram, the foundation lasts an impressively long time for my oily skin. I would say this foundation lasts a solid 6 hours on me before I start looking shiny and it starts breaking up in my T-zone. And it will still continue to look good, I can just tell that it’s starting to separate around my nose, chin, forehead and such and it will progressively get worse throughout the night as more of my oily skin comes through.
The big question that I wanted to find out was, did this look natural on my skin. Did it look like I was ‘born this way’. 🙂 I would say that in person, no. You could tell I was wearing foundation, though it didn’t make me look cake-face. In pictures, however, I would say that the claims of this foundation shine through the most. As you can judge for yourself in the picture I shared above, it gave me a very radient, healthy glow that made my skin look naturally flawless. Nothing cake at all!
Would I recommend this foundation? I say YES! I can’t vouch for how it would work with those who have dry skin, but I would think that it would be fabulous. If you have very, very oily skin, this might be more of a high-matienence foundation than you’d prefer, but you really won’t know unless you try. My recommendation, if you’re still on the fence about this Born This Way foundation, is to go to your local Sephora and get a sample to try out at home! 🙂
