Too Faced Born This Way Foundation + Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser Review!


Hi everyone! How was your weekend?

I have quick reviews on two popular makeup and skincare to share today so let’s get to it. 🙂

Born This Way

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation 

Described as “an oil-free foundation for natural-looking, full coverage and a beautiful, radiant finish.”  It also boasts ingredients like coconut water, hyaluronic acid and alpine rose.


Feels light-weight on the skin

Easily applies to the skin

Was a good color match

Buildable coverage


Tends to separate on skin giving a peeling skin illusion

Emphasized my pores/imperfections

No noticeable hydration

Overall I loved this foundation when I first tried it on in store as the color was a perfect match and you couldn’t tell I was wearing makeup; it also felt very light on the face.  Fast forward to half an hour later and my face was a patchy, oily mess.  Whether I use primer or not, exfoliate the day before or use a setting spray, nothing helps the appearance. It makes my face look like it is peeling. Sadly, this didn’t work out for me but I do think it’s worth a try just to see how it works for you.


Sunday Riley

Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser 

Described as a “cleanser purifies the skin, tightens pores, and supports natural collagen and circulation with natural essential oils to tone and balance the skin. It detoxifies, minimizes pore size, and helps you achieve a flawless, ‘ceramic-smooth’complexion.”


Effectively removes oil



Unpleasant scent

Too drying for my skin

Overall I can’t really find anything good to say about this cleanser except that it does effectively remove oil.  My face felt extremely dry and sort of prune-like afterwards and I couldn’t stand the smell.  This cleanser contains black pepper and that scent is very prominent here.  It doesn’t foam but because it contains clay, this helps draw out sebum from the skin.  Definitely not an everyday cleanser so in my opinion, skip this one and save your money.

  1. That foundation seems to be hit & miss for a lot of people. Some with oily skin get a good result while others don’t. I’m oily in my t-zone so I use a mattifying primer as well as a pore filler on my nose and for the most part it stays put for me. After a few hours it starts breaking down a little at the very top of my nose, but I bring a tiny bottle of extra with me (gotta love those Sephora samples!) and I’m good after a quick touch up.

    • I used this with the MUFE primer and it was a disaster. Yes, I’ve had foundations kind of break down before but this looked like I was peeling. I even tried to apply a bit more foundation and nope. Nothing worked. 😦 Yes, I love those Sephora samples-they come in handy. 🙂

    • Thanks Aimee. Yes, exactly! I made the mistake of wearing this out somewhere and when I got in the car I was mortified. It was too late to go back and take it off so I tried patting it in with a makeup sponge I had and nope. I had to deal with that appearance for the day. 😦

  2. Ugh, I really wanted to hear that the foundation was everything it claims to be. I’ve read mixed reviews and I really want to try it but it’s so darn expensive.

  3. Hi Stephanie! Just thought I would hop on here real quick and check out some posts! Great reviews! That’s too bad about the Too Faced foundation. I had really high hopes for it. I think I will stick with my cheaper Rimmel Lasting Finish lol. I just love that one now! 🙂 xo

  4. A while back I also picked up a sample of the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation, and the color match was perfect, I loved the way it sat on my skin, it looked beautiful, and was super comfortable. But it must have an ingredient that doesn’t work to well with my skin, I started getting breakouts, which is not normal for me. So sad it didn’t work out for me too 😦 But I’m still on the hunt for a new foundation! Maybe the Nars Sheer Glow or the Estée Lauder Double Wear. Kisses**
