Welcome to my addition of ‘Lovin Lately’ where I’ll chat about a product that I just can’t get enough of.

If you haven’t already noticed, this week’s star of the blog is the Too Faced, Born This Way Foundation.

I had my make up done at Mecca Maxima about a month ago now and the makeup artist used the Too Faced Born this Way Foundation in the shade Warm Beige. I love taking the opportunity of a makeup application to try a new foundation. Such a great way to test it out without parting with your hard earned cash. I absolutely adored the way this looked on my skin from the moment she applied it.

First of all, this shade is perfection on my tanned skin (this is so rare). I usually have to mix two different shades to get the perfect shade on me, so this is a massive bonus. The formula for my skin (not oily, slightly dry in some areas) is perfect, which makes sense as it marketed towards people with more combination skin (it may wear and be overly moisturising for people with oily skin). I have also noticed by the end of a work day I am not finding my skin oily or needing to pat it down with blotting papers, as is my issue with many other foundations. 

The sheer cream formula is a relatively light texture which makes it a perfect foundation to build. You can create a more sheer natural look or continue to build for a glam night out, without the foundation caking. It is also fragrance free and has an extremely moisturising finish which I find slightly dewy, leaving my complexion with a beautiful glow. Whilst I love love love this for everyday wear, some people that are looking to attain a more natural look may find it a little heavy.

The packaging also get a big thumbs up from me, beautiful glass bottle with a pump (and no you aren’t charged extra for a pump, yes i’m talking to you NARS!!). 

Overall, I am so happy I have discovered a foundation that suits my skin and my beauty needs down to a tee. 10/10 for me.

I would love to hear about a product that you have been loving lately, let me know in the comments below.

Much love . xx

    I loved the finish on me with this foundation but it looked so full coverage, I then thought perhaps she used a very dark shade, so I’ve got a sample to use now and can’t wait to see how it goes. Yes Nars should just make a bottle with a pump .. It’s pricey enough to warrant a little bit extra.

      Yeah, they market it as a sheer coverage and it really is not. I found if you use sparingly it is somewhat lighter, however i’m a big full coverage fan, so my version of lighter coverage may differ from others haha. I hope you like the lighter shade 🙂 I know right! It’s a sham making you purchase the pump separately, come on!!!
