A little while ago I noticed that whenever I wore makeup all day (for 8+ hours) I would breakout, and this never used to happen to me so I thought it may have been the product I was using. I was using the Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, and while I LOVE the way the finish looks, I can only seem to wear it for short events or shoots or I end up breaking out just because it’s such a full coverage foundation. I googled the best non comedogenic foundations for oily skin and this Too Faced line came up in numerous recommendations, so I thought I would give it a go.
I picked up the primer, foundation, and translucent powder. The whole collections smells just like peach candy and even tastes like it too? I know you’re not supposed to eat makeup LOL but sometimes you breathe in the powder and it’s like wait…this kind of tastes good!
The Primed and Peachy ‘Cooling Matte Skin Perfecting Primer’ is a thicker pink gel/cream and I feel like it has a similar consistency to the Benefit Pore-fessional but just a little more hydrating and it has a cooling effect that the Benefit one does not. I really like this primer, I think it fills in my pores well and it helps to wake me up in the mornings because of the cooling effect it has on the skin.
Next I got the Peach Perfect ‘Comfort Matte Foundation’ in light beige. I really like this foundation for everyday because it has a medium coverage and therefore doesn’t feel like you’re wearing a mask of makeup every day and it lets your skin breathe. Because of this, it doesn’t cover up everything so if you have a really big pimple or dark mark it won’t cover it up completely, but for an everyday look I think that’s okay. I can wear this foundation all day it doesn’t seem to break me out. I think this is because it is a mattifying foundation so my skin doesn’t produce as much oil throughout the day, and therefore it makes it less likely that my pores will clog. Below is a picture of swatches of all the shades of this foundation that I found on Pinterest. You can see what light beige looks like in comparison to the others.
And finally to complete the collection, I picked up the Peach Perfect Powder. This powder is super fine so it doesn’t sink into fine lines and wrinkles or look super powdery. I use this to bake my under eyes as well as all over the face. It keeps me looking matte and it is photo-friendly meaning you won’t get that white cast on your face in pictures whenever you take flash photography.
I love Too Faced (good quality and cute packaging, what’s not to like?) and I’m definitely going to pick up more products from them in the future. I’m thinking in the Summer I might pick up the Peach Perfect mattifying setting spray too to help combat my oil even more and add to the collection.
That’s all I have for now!
