Too Faced Born This Way Foundation Always Meliss Review

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation has been on my radar for some time. I purchased the foundation about a month ago and dove into the beautiful pink box. I haven’t looked back since! It only made sense for me to do a Too Faced Born This Way Foundation Review, after wearing this daily for a month.

When trying a new foundation, I look for the below:

Parabin Free

Medium to Full Coverage

No Strong Smells

Good Consistency (nothing too watery)

Oil Free

Long Lasting

Before pulling the trigger, I read many reviews on the Born This Way Foundation. The description and reviews checked every box.

Admittedly, I had low expectations for this foundation. Reason being, the last Too Faced face product I used, I was not crazy about (it was a bronzer though). I was proven very wrong.

I created a full face contour YouTube tutorial using the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation. 


The Too Faced Born This Way Foundation comes in a clear pump bottle, with gold text, a gold trim at the top of the bottle, and a black cap.

The bottle is super cute, holds 1 oz of product, and is easy to travel with. The pump doesn’t send too much product out, either. I find that two pumps coats my face perfectly.

If you prefer a more full look, use two pumps. I use a Beauty Blender to set the foundation, as well.


The product feels soft to the touch, and on the medium thickness side. It is vital that my foundation is set properly. After about 30 seconds, this product dries. It blends nicely, but definitely use a Beauty Blender and loose powder to set (check out the tutorial to see best practices).

I am obsessed with the fact that this product is made with Coconut Water. This helps replenish your skin’s natural moisture, without making you oily.

Above I put product on half of my face. You can see how great the coverage actually is! It totally evens out my skin tone.

Product Availability

The Too Faced Born This Way Foundation is available in 24 colors (they just came out with a few new ones). My color is Warm Nude. I’m light with neutral undertones.


Too Faced makes huge promises with the Born This Way Foundation. Literally the box reads:

“This oil-free foundation masterfully diffuses the line between makeup and skin. Coverage so undetectable and skin so naturally radiant, they’ll think you were BORN THIS WAY.”

Obviously this means, it better look natural! Let’s be honest, foundation that is medium to full is never going to look “natural.” However, that doesn’t drive me away. The product definitely blurred my imperfections, took the redness right out, and made my skin look smooth.

The foundation wears pretty well. After consistently wearing it for the past month, I am really enjoying it. The one downside is, with my oily skin, after about 5 to 6 hours, I do see oil start peeking through. To combat this, I bring loose powder with me to reset throughout the day.


Overall, I love this foundation! It checks all my boxes, and Too Faced lives up to their promise to “masterfully diffuse the line between makeup and skin”. I have very sensitive skin, and it does not make me break out. The consistency is perfect, and it leaves my skin feeling light weight and looking flawless.

Although it still shows oil hours in, I just love how flawless my skin looks with the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation. I definitely recommend testing this foundation!

    This s one of my favorite foundations. I love it even more when I mix it half and half with MakeUp Forever's Ultra HD liquid foundation. It is a beautiful combo.
