OVERALL :
I wanted to love this foundation because it seemed like it’s on the top of everyone’s must have/holy grail lists. Sadly, it just did not work for me.

While it looked great after applying with a damp beauty sponge, over the course of the day (about 8 hours) I noticed a lot of patchy areas around my cheeks, cakey-ness and oiliness on my forehead and overall oxidation. I felt it made the oily areas I do have worse as the day wore on. It was not cute! I couldn’t believe how bad it performed and looked considering the high ratings and price point.

Once I washed it off with my usual cleanser (Philosophy Purity) I could tell my skin did not care for it. My skin is normal to dry (cheeks and forehead) and I noticed this foundation made my skin feel and look drier. Perhaps it’s the hyaluronic acid or coconut water in the formula? I’m not sure. I thought maybe it was a fluke and used it again the next day but, nope it still sucked.

I’m a fan of the TooFaced line but, I’m sad to say this was a fail. I do not recommend it.
