Last week I took my happy self to Sephora to get color matched. I'm still about a shade and a half darker than I naturally am (my tan is taking its sweet time with the fading this year), and am getting new foundation since I'm interviewing and hoping to enter the workforce. While I don't necessarily wear it all the time, I need foundation to cover my flaws, acne scars and new acne. I had been wanting to try Too Faced's foundation, specifically Born This Way. Lot's of people, bloggers and mainstream media alike, have raved about the product.
My skin is acne prone-hormonal acne because I have PCOS- and combination where my T-zone gets oily after a few hours. As a passing side note, over the past few years I've noticed my skin has also turned out to be quite sensitive.
My Initial Thoughts
When I first applied the foundation I was pleasantly surprised to note how natural it looked on and how it was literally the color of my skin. Kudos to the company for the color and the Sephora makeup artist who did well in matching me. I liked the way it looked and felt on my face which is really important because if once I put it on I feel it is too heavy or I look like I'm wearing tons of makeup, I won't be using the product.
My Final Thoughts
This foundation wore well over the course of the two days I wore it. It looks great, isn't heavy and isn't too expensive. For me, it is a return because I noticed it broke me out. If the foundation didn't do that, I would have loved it! So, overall, this is not for me and probably anyone like me with similar skin issues.
