Too faced born This way Concealer

I prioritized this review because this concealer is launching this month here in Canada.

The official name of the concealer is too faced born This way naturally Radiant Concealer, and is an extension to the born This way Foundation.  I was able to purchase this in advancement of the launch date during a pre-launch event. I’ve been wearing this concealer for the past 2 weeks in various conditions and trying different methods. here are my thoughts.

I’m quite a newbie to the too faced brand. Their packaging just screams girly princess that seem to be much more geared toward those just starting out with makeup. but the quality of the product and packaging are actually great. This concealer tube has little feminine details like a gold band around the neck and scalloped details at the top of the cap, with “TF” in gold calligraphy.

The doe-foot wand is quite useful because the suggestion is engineered with a little reservoir to “scoop” and deposit the product onto the skin.  The suggestion is ever so slightly floppy but nothing like the urban Decay naked Skin Concealer.

There are 10 colours provided in this concealer as shown by the informational card I received at the event:

Very fair – fair/light with pink undertones
Fair – very fair with pink undertones
Light – light with golden undertones
Light medium – medium with peach undertones
Medium – medium/tan with golden undertones
Medium Tan – medium/tan with pink undertones
Tan – tan with golden undertones
Deep Tan – tan with golden undertones
Dark – dark with golden undertones
Deep – deep with pink undertones

I was matched to the shade Light which is the 3rd lightest shade.  I would say the colour is a good match, about 90% but it’s just ever so slightly too light for me. I think Light medium could also possibly work for me but it might be a tad too dark / yellow.

• Coconut Water helps replenish skin’s moisture levels without over hydrating
• Alpine rose brightens skin’s appearance and promotes elasticity
• Hyaluronic Acid for a smoother, much more youthful appearance
• Creamy and comfortable to wear
• creates look of flawless and natural looking radiant skin
• Sans huile

This is an interesting product, and I experienced a bit of a learning curve on how to apply it.  The consistency of the concealer is like a thin gel lotion that stays dewy looking on the skin even after it has set.

The best way I found to apply this is with a fluffy synthetic brush or a charm Blender-type sponge. When I try to use my fingers to blend, it leaves finger marks and streaks on my skin. My preferred fluffy brush for blending this is the little Ecotools one that came with the 5pc Mineral set (it’s an old set, I don’t think it’s available anymore sadly. but there are numerous options on the market today from brands like Morphe, Sedona Lace, and Coastal Scents, etc).  I also found that the “open” time of the concealer is quite short, implying that I have to work rapidly to blend it before it begins to set.

The many outstanding thing for me is that this concealer does not oxidize.  It also leaves the skin smooth looking, and doesn’t crease. I’ve worn this various ways: on its own, over the Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector, with a setting powder. My preferred way to wear this is actually on its own – no corrector underneath, no powder on top.  The reason is that this concealer doesn’t play good with other products. When I use the corrector underneath, the concealer doesn’t seem to fully set.  And if I set it with powder on top, it can tend to look dry.  I find this concealer to fade through the day no matter if I set it with powder or not.  The coverage is decent, not nearly as high coverage as the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer which I evaluated recently.

Here are the 2 concealers side by side. The Nars in Custard (left) has a much more golden undertone, whereas too faced in Light is much more neutral – I find the too faced to have a better undertone for me. The difference in the doe-foot applicator is also obvious here – I do appreciate the thought put into the too face wand design. The too faced tube also has that satisfying click closure mechanism like the urban Decay concealer.

At the event I also had a consultation and the Primed & Poreless pressed Powder was recommended to me to try – I’m fascinated by the idea of priming my skin with powder before using liquid foundation on top!  I received a sample of the Hangover Replenishing face primer & Booster as part of the promotion.
I’ve read lots of comments about this concealer having a coconut scent but I barely smell anything unless I put the wand best up against my nose. It’s a light somewhat coconuty sweet scent – It’s not offensive to me and I have a sensitive nose.  But, coconut is one of my preferred smells, so it may offend you if you dislike coconut scents.

I ought to note that I did not try this concealer for other areas of my face, because it’s marketed as an under eYE Compatise – La couverture ne se prêterait pas à couvrir de nombreuses rougeurs ou imperfections efficacement. Dans l’ensemble, c’est un bon correcteur. Cela ne fera pas une liste de favoris pour moi, mais je l’aime et je l’utiliserai. J’ai sombre sous des cercles des yeux, mais ma sous-oeil est assez plate – ce n’est pas gonflé ni coulé. Je sens que ce cachette serait beaucoup approprié pour ceux qui sont sous la zone des yeux qui ne sont pas trop sombres, mais peuvent avoir des prises en retrait qui faites-les sembler être plus sombres. La riposte de ce correcteur contribuera à amener les couchers dans des zones en avant.

Ce correcteur est fabriqué en Italie. Il bénéficie de 32 $ CAD pour 7 ml de produit. Au Canada, trop confronté n’est vendu que chez Sephora. Voici la ventilation complète de la façon dont je l’évalue:

Prix ​​sage, je pense que c’est juste pour un produit intermédiaire:

• ne s’oxyde pas
• Ne pleure pas ou ne travaille pas dans des lignes fines
• effet de lissage
• Illumine la zone des yeux
• large gamme de nuances

Les inconvénients:
• Couverture non élevée
• difficile à mélanger
• s’estompe à travers la journée

Statistique: 7/10
