Review: Too Faced Amazing Face Liquid Foundation


I have been using this foundation for about 4 months now, and it is by far my favourite foundation that I’ve ever tried! I am so surprised that I hadn’t stumbled across too many reviews of this product, so I thought I would share my thoughts with you.

What Too Faced say:
Our oil-free, skin smoothing liquid foundation provides the illusion of airbrushed skin in seconds. Complexion concerns disappear as the weightless, silky formula glides on skin delivering undetectable coverage, with luxurious skincare benefits. You will always be ready for your close up! 

I don’t have the best, most flawless skin ever. It’s quite uneven, has redness, and I suffer from the dreaded oily T-zone.

I spotted this foundation last year in Kit Cosmetics because of the cute looking glass bottle – I’m a sucker for cute packaging. I was really hesitant to try a foundation that had more of a dewy finish because I didn’t want to accentuate my oiliness. However, because the foundation itself was oil-free and paraben free, I went for it and picked up a sample in the shade ‘Perfect Nude’. As soon as I was running low on my sample I didn’t hesitate to go out and buy the full size bottle!

It also claims to:
  • Erase Imperfections - Created with our advanced Light Refraction Technology that visibly reduces the appearance of pores and fine lines by diffusing and reflecting light.  
  • Wrinkle Relaxing - Bio Transformed Botanicals soften and relax the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles.  
  • Close-Up Coverage - Real Skin Technology allows for “close up” perfection. Weightless in finish and feeling, foundation coverage adjusts to skins’ ever changing needs.  
  • Skin Balancing - Natural Bark Extract absorbs excess oil while keeping skin hydrated and fresh.  

I definitely agree that it helps to erase imperfections, makes my skin look great close-up, and has skin balancing properties – but I don't feel like I can comment on the wrinkle relaxing claims, as I haven’t really experienced it myself.

I would describe it as a medium coverage foundation, and covers my redness and events out my skintone whilst looking quite natural on my skin. I absolutely love the more dewy finish this leaves on my skin, as it doesn’t look so flat like matte foundations can.

I use this foundation with a primer & powder religiously, and sometimes with a makeup finishing spray and it stays put on my skin all day (I don’t carry around powder to touch up with). It glides onto my skin so smoothly and doesn’t streak on me at all, just make sure you shake the bottle before you use it!

Don’t be put off by the fact that it doesn’t have a pump – it actually doesn’t bother me at all, and I don’t find it hard to get the perfect amount of product out of the bottle.

I love the look this has on my skin, and will be repurchasing it before the bottle runs out! Definitely my go-to foundation!

I used this foundation in a previous FOTD, which you can find here.

You can purchase the Too Faced Amazing Face Liquid Foundation from Kit Cosmetics in Australia for $53.95.

  5. Oil free sounds good enough for me :( I have super oily skin so oily foundations make me break out! This sounds like a great product, thanks for the share :)
