Too Faced Born This Way Foundation Review

I just got the new Too Faced Born This Way Foundation last week.  I've used it a few times now, and I think I've found my new favorite foundation!  It is light-weight, has great coverage, hydrating and lasts all day!  The foundation is oil-free and has coconut water for all-day hydration.  I have combination skin with a T-zone that can get pretty oily and this foundation does a great job at keeping the oiliness in check.

The longest I've worn this foundation was for about 14 hours, and at the end of the day, it still looked intact.  There was a bit of break up on my nose area, but I really started noticing it after about 8 hours!  The best thing about this foundation is the coverage.  I've used this without any concealer and it's covered up a lot of my hyper pigmentation and blemishes.  This product claims to be medium to full coverage and it delivers.  One layer of application will definitely give you medium coverage and you can build this up to a full coverage foundation.  I've also noticed that this foundation gives your overall complexion a milky smooth finish.  Most full coverage foundations start to feel heavy and cakey after a few hours, but this one remains completely light weight!

Here are my before and after photos:

I did not use any concealer, but did apply two layers of the foundation with a slight dusting of Nars' Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder to set the foundation.  My hyper pigmentation and redness is all covered up and my complexions smoothed out.  All this with no concealer!  Also in this light makeup look, I used Nars' blush in Orgasm, Smashbox's Photo Op Eye Shadow Trio in Filter, and L'Oreal's Le Matte Lip Pen in She's So Matte is on my lips.  Simple weekend makeup!

I would absolutely recommend this foundation if you are looking for something that is light-weight but also provides amazing coverage.  I can't say enough great things about this!
