The Too Faced Born This Way Concealer is finally here! If you remember when Too Faced released their Born This Way foundation last year, I raved about it in my review and still use it on a regular basis now. It gives me the perfect amount of coverage for my blemishes, while still keeping the finish looking very realistic and natural. I was so curious to see if the concealers would be just as amazing!
Too Faced Born This Way Concealer
It was a very big (and unexpected) surprise when Too Faced sent me all ten shades of their new Born This Way concealer line — and all packaged up inside this super-cute bag, too! I think this will be really cute to use to hold nail polish supplies in. 🙂
The packaging for the Born This Way concealer looks identical to the foundations, except it’s tall and skinny, like a typical concealer. I’ve tested this with the Too Faced foundation, and other foundations, and they all played beautifully with this concealer!
The applicator is a typical doe-foot tip for a concealer. It’s pretty flexible and dense, making it easy to get enough concealer for under my eyes with just one dip into the tube. The formula is really nice, too, and feels great on the skin. I don’t prefer this type of consistency in a concealer to conceal acne spots, but it’s ideal for under your eyes.
While I have used all three popular ways to blend in this Born This Way concealer — brush, sponge, and fingers — I prefer how it looks when I use this makeup sponge. It gives a more flawless finish and doesn’t crease as much as when I use a brush.
They have a nice range of colors, but there are definitely some holes still to be filled. I expect Too Faced to release some more in the not-too-distant future, so if you don’t see any shades that will match you above, keep a look out for more releases soon!
Because of the moisturizing element of this Born This Way concealer (nice for the undereyes) I didn’t try to contour or anything crazy with the rest of the shades. If you didn’t know, I am a pretty oily mess most days — and as I already said I wasn’t impressed with how the concealer wore when I used it to try to conceal blemishes. It tended to wear away within a few hours (which could be due to my oily skin).
So what are my final thoughts? I love this concealer under the eyes. It wears beautifully throughout the day and doesn’t leave my under eyes creasing or dry by the end of the day. I do not, however, use it on my blemishes. Again, as I said before, this is probably due to my oily skin, so this concealer might work well for you if you have dry skin.
Let me know — is the concealer you use on your under eyes typically the same one you use on your blemishes? Is my skin just finicky because a concealer that works for one area might not work for the other?
