I purchased the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation about two weeks ago, I've been testing it out and have decided to write a review for you.
Too Faced released the foundation in June 2015 and since it's been released I've heard people raving about it constantly. It's been spoken about a lot so I thought I'd give you the low down on everything you need to know about this foundation.
About The Brand
I love Too Faced as a brand, they are animal cruelty free (big thumbs up from me) and they are constantly releasing such beautiful, high quality products. What's not to love about them!?
The packaging is gorgeous. Not too over-the-top but still super cute. It comes in a pink box with metallic gold and black touches. The box tells you everything about the product and the foundation colour is on the top. The bottle comes with a free pump (YES!) and a cap that doesn't come off in your bag and leak everywhere (double yes!). It's in a frosted glass bottle with black lid and metallic gold touches to match the box.
The Born This Way Foundation comes in 18 different shades with pink and yellow undertones. There's something for everyone! To find your colour I'd suggest getting the sales assistant to colour match you so you don't come home with the wrong shade.
If you're wondering, I'm in the colour Light Beige.
The Foundation costs AUD$62 or USD$39 for a 30mL bottle.

I have normal skin type. This foundation has very good longevity, I use primer with it and I've never had a problem with it coming off during the day. I don't touch up my makeup during the day and haven't needed to powder my face after a couple hours of wear. As it is oil free it should work well for oily skin, I suggest trying before buying if you are worried it won't be right for your skin type.
I wouldn't say it's full coverage, more medium coverage but build able. I usually use one to two pumps and apply with a damp real techniques complexion sponge. However no matter what tool you use to blend it, it easily blends and melts into the skin to give a natural and fresh finish. It doesn't go patchy when layering and you probably won't need more then three pumps to give a full coverage finish.
The box says it's undetectable and I completely agree with that. The foundation is infused with coconut water to replenish skins moister levels: it never leaves my face feeling dry. It doesn't sink into any of my fine lines on my forehead or around my mouth, this gives me the impression that it would suit matured skin.
Glycerin is it's third ingredient, which helps with the longevity of your makeup. Glycerin is basically the super glue of makeup so it is important to have in primers and foundations.
I think it's worth the money if you looking to invest in a decent foundation. Obviously there are some great foundations out there for less than half the price so I suggest figuring out what works for you and testing the foundation before buying. My favourite drug store foundation was Loreal True Match but after trying out this foundation I don't think I could go back. It's higher quality, longer lasting, fuller coverage compared to drug store foundations. My other favourite high end foundation is Nars Sheer Glow, which is slightly fuller coverage compared to Too Faced Born This Way however it's higher in price. Finally, I highly recommend this product and will continue using it as my holy grail foundation and I will be repurchasing this product when I run out.
