This liquid foundation earns the "amazing" part of its name! It has a dewy finish without looking or feeling greasy. The lightweight texture blends on smoothly and offers medium coverage in flattering, neutral shades, ranging from fair to deep. This is a great option for anyone who doesn't need full coverage and wants a natural look complete with a more even skin tone.

Pros:
  • Lightweight liquid texture blends smoothly.
  • Dewy finish that doesn't look or feel greasy.
  • Flattering, neutral shades, ranging from fair to deep.
  • Offers a natural look yet makes skin tone look even.
Cons:
  • Not ideal if you need full coverage.

Brand Overview

Too Faced At-A-Glance

Too Faced is the brainchild of Jerrod Blandino, who got his start in the cosmetics industry as a department store makeup artist in the '90s. According to brand lore, Blandino's clients sought him out for his lighthearted, playful approach to beauty, which led him to create his own line. Soon he teamed up with business partner Jeremy Johnson, and launched Too Faced. The brand caught on quickly, getting distribution in stores like Nordstorm and Sephora.

Too Faced's biggest hook is its emphasis on a feminine persona that seeks to make beauty seem fun. There are several food- and scent-themed palettes, and many products bear trendy or cheeky monikers. The brand offers some top-notch performers, including some great powder products and its top-selling Better Than Sex Mascara, though there are some mis-steps as well (see our individual reviews for more information).

Note: In November 2016, cosmetics giant Estee Lauder bought Too Faced for $1.45 billion. Despite the fact that Estee Lauder sells products in China, where animal testing is in some cases required by law, Too Faced's founders say they maintain their commitment to no animal testing (and there are no plans so far to sell Too Faced products in China).
