Too Faced Born This Way Foundation - Vanilla.




This revolutionary foundation is infused with a potent combination of Coconut Water to naturally replenish moisture levels; nature’s resilient Alpine Rose to brighten the skin’s appearance and promote elasticity and Hyaluronic Acid for a smoother, more youthful appearance. 

Let them think you were Born This Way.
  • Medium-to-full undetectable coverage
  • Oil-free
  • Coconut Water helps delicately replenish skin’s moisture levels without overhydrating—for the look of radiant skin
  • Infused with the resilient Alpine Rose to brighten the skin’s appearance and promote elasticity
  • Hyaluronic Acid helps balance skin for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
I totally LOVE this foundation, it leaves my skin looking flawless! It is just beautiful, my only complaint which is tiny is becareful if buying online as the shades are quite difficult to choose as I had Porcelain which I thought was the lightest shade but it is actually 1-2 shades darker than vanilla? So I would suggest gong in store or getting a sample before buying yours. But I can still wear Porcelain, I just use less and sheer it out and it looks fine. I will just use it in the summer months as it lasts all day and absorbs my oil .. I just can't praise this foundation any more.. It is currently my HG foundation for all weathers and occasions. If you're looking for a foundation that is super comfortable to wear all day and fantastic coverage, this is definitely the one for you!!! I've tried so many foundations and this one stood out to me the most. it feels like you're wearing absolutely nothing while giving you flawless looking skin. 

Available for £29.00 as all good beauty stores.

Fragrance Rose Gold exudes glamour and femininity. Luminous opening scent is created of lemon notes, juicy fruit, illuminating floral harmony in the heart of velvety roses, tuberose, neroli and cyclamen.

I love the scent of this fragrance, it's lovely and delicate, a lingering sexy mist, the scent lasts a good 8-10 hours on me, but I can still smell on my clothes the morning after, the scent is beautiful. Perfect for spring/summer. I imagine this would make a gorgeous wedding fragrance as it just has something lovely and romantic about it.

Hangover is a revolutionary makeup primer infused with coconut water, probiotic-based ingredients, and skin revivers that work together to boost skins radiance, promote elasticity, and help hydrate while locking down makeup for fresher, longer, and more flawless wear. We harnessed the science of hydration to create a creamy, penetrating primer that acts like an energy drink for the skin by replenishing moisture levels. It can be worn alone for a dewy, healthy looking finish or under bronzers, foundations, and powders to create the perfect canvas.
  • The unique combination of coconut water, probiotic-based ingredient and skin revivers work together to: Hydrate and brighten skin, Promote skin s elasticity and tone, Soothe and smooth the skin.

It’s formulated to brighten, tone, hydrate, and firm skin thus giving it the look of eight hours of sleep or as if you had plenty of water to hydrate your skin. I have combination skin and am loving using it under my foundations, it gives me a lovely finish and helps keep my foundation looking good all day, I do use smashbox pore minimiser on my nose as I have quite large pores and need extra help (review coming soon). This does have a subtle coconut water scent that’s quite pleasant but not too noticeable after application. The formula is a thinner, creamy texture that applies with a bit of stickiness at first but sets to a dewy finish. I am really impressed.
