(A very long) Review of Too Faced Peach Perfect Foundation

(A very long) Review of Too Faced Peach Perfect Foundation

I had heard a lot of mixed reviews on this foundation before I decided to try it myself. Some people seemed to love it, other people not so much. I really liked Born This Way foundation from Too Faced, so I decided to give their Peach Perfect foundation a try. I am, as you can see, very pale and I am using the lightest shade in the range called Snow. I did not use a primer underneath the foundation.

When you read about the foundation, this is what it is supposed to be like:

  • Matte velvety finish

  • Oil free

  • 14 hour wear

  • Photograph friendly

  • Medium coverage

  • Never cakey

I started applying the foundation with a beauty blender, as they recommended, but the formula is very thick and I thought the beauty blender absorbed too much product. But after trying to apply it with a brush as well, I decided that beauty blender was the best way. It dries very fast and gets a very powdery finish. It felt thick, sticky and hard to blend out.

After about two hours I looked at my face in the mirror again and I felt like it looked a lot better after it had time to set. Still looked very dry and matte and a little cakey. It makes my pores and fine lines very visible, and normally I never have problems with creasing under my eyes, but this foundation really enhances that. I had a little dry patch on my chin and the foundation made it very visible. I feel like using a good primer would help a lot with the pores and fine lines.

After 14 hours of wearing

After wearing it for 14 hours, and not touching it up, i was pretty impressed. It stays in place and keeps being matte throughout the day, but i could note a big difference in my T-zone towards the last hours of wearing it.

So, does it live up to it’s promises?

  • Matte velvety finish - It’s definitely matte but i would say it’s more powdery than velvety.

  • Oil free - yes

  • 14 hour wear - I would say it looks as good as when applying it for the first 9 hours, then it looses it’s matte finish.

  • Photograph friendly - yes

  • Medium coverage - yes

  • Never cakey - no. very cakey if you have dry skin

Over all it’s not a bad foundation, but I think there are better ones for my skin. I have dry/combination skin. I would not repurchase this foundation, although i do not regret buying it.

I would love to make this foundation work better for me, so if you have tried it please let me know if you have any tips! I am also looking for a good primer, so please comment what your favorite one is. Thank you for reading!
