My top foundations picks.

Updated: Nov 28, 2018

If you've been searching for a new foundation, then you've come to the right place. Keep on reading to find out why I love these foundations and see how I rank them.

These foundations were tested on my skin type ( normal - combination depending on the season ) so please keep that in mind when searching for your perfect fit.

1. Too Faced Born This Way Foundation

Coverage : This foundation doesn't play around, it's full coverage! If applied properly it doesn't require the use of concealer for blemishes, redness etc. It does not feel heavy on the skin and has the most beautiful airbrushed finish.

I use about 1+half pumps to 2 pumps for my entire face and neck area, preferably with a beauty blender for a smoother flawless looking finish. Dries to a matte finish.

Wear time : Lasts all day long. No flakiness, no shifting/melting.

I did set my T-zone with powder, as these areas tend to get shiny naturally. I must say a little goes a long way so be careful with applying too much.

Ingredients + Packaging : The #TooFaced #BornThisWay foundation is oil-free and paraben free containing : Coconut water which helps replenish skin's moisture levels. Alpine Rose to brighten the skin's appearance and promote elasticity. Hyaluronic Acid provides long-lasting hydration for a smoother, more youthful appearance

Love the black and gold combo of the packaging. The frosted glass bottle feels good and solid, plus point it comes with a pump (honestly don't understand brands that don't include this, its a no-brainer to me.) which makes for easy no-mess application.

Size : 30ml

Shade range : 35 shades, I'm the shade Golden Beige however I could also match to Sand in summer.

Price : #39.00 | +/- R540.00

Worth it? : So did the Too Faced Born This Way live up to the hype? YES! Worth every penny! Climbed up to my top 3 foundations after 1 use. When I first walked into Sephora this foundation wasn't even on my list but after swatching it, I honestly was blown away with the coverage and creamy consistency. I'm a high coverage gal so I really appreciate the way this formula dries and looks, plus the fact that its scent free.
