Too Faced is a fun cosmetic company with fabulous products. Available on line or in stores, this is my review of one of their foundations, the Amazing Face Skin-Balancing Flexible Coverage Foundation Powder.

In a rut as far as foundations go? Give this one a try!



If you are like me, you may have been stuck in a rut over the years as far as make-up goes. I had stayed with the tried and true brands like Maybelline, L’Oreal and Cover Girl. But as you enter your fifties, now might be a good time to try some of the other awesome brands that are out there. Get out of your comfort zone and give it a whirl. You might be pleasantly surprised. I know I have been.
Too Faced is a brand of cosmetics that has gained in popularity recently. It was started in the 90’s in California and has found a following among our celebrities. Not only do they have some darn good cosmetics, they also package them in a very cute retro look that appeals to many women, yours truly among them. The one I am going to talk about today is their skin balancing flexible coverage foundation powder.
I have never been a fan of powder foundations. When the mineral foundation craze hit, I did give them a try, but found that even they are a bit harsh on my sensitive skin. And because of the powder formula, I did not like the way the foundation ended up sitting in the fine lines and wrinkles that have started forming around my eyes and the corners of my mouth. Even though the commercials said they would not sit in my lines, they did and I quickly threw them out or handed them off to my sister or my nieces. They also tend to find a home in my pores, as well. Not a fan!
Because I have a ruddy complexion and do have some fine red veins that have chosen to appear on my cheeks, I really don’t like to go out without some foundation on, but hate putting on the works to just run out to the grocery store. I was looking for some kind of easy fix. Too Faced had come out with their powder foundation and I decided to give it a try. I only decided to try it, though, after reading a ton of reviews on the product that they publish on their online site.
The foundation is $32.00 and comes in a chic black and pink compact with its own sponge applicator. I chose to apply it with a brush and was surprised to get pretty darn good coverage with the product. Because of my fair skin, I bought the Vanilla Crème color and it goes very well with my skin tone. I love Too Faced foundations because they tend to have a hint of yellow in them and this offsets my red tone perfectly. I use the sponge applicator to get a little heavier coverage in the area’s where I need it, like on my nose, cheeks and chin, and the foundation is so fine, it does not sit in my pores or wrinkles at all.
This foundation also seems to last and last. With the little sponge applicator that comes with it, touch ups are simple to do and since it is a powder foundation, you don’t need to add the powder layer to set your foundation. The more I use this stuff, the more I like it.
The Too Faced Company puts all kinds of good for your skin things in their products and the foundation has an SPF of 15. It comes in five different shades so most women can find a match. Too Faced products are available online or in Ulta stores or other fine cosmetic stores across the country.
I give this foundation a 4 out of 5 smooch rating with one off for the price, simply because I am cheap. But if you think about it, you can do away with your powder so maybe the price isn’t that bad.
