FOTD & Review Too Faced Amazing Face Oil-Free Close-Up Coverage Foundation

Happy October everyone! It's been a good month for me so far =). I got hired by Sephora yesterday yayy! After my interview I went to a different Sephora & went browsing around. I wanted to try out a new foundation. Already tried NARS, MUFE HD, Smashbox, & Tarte. Too Faced was the only one I haven't tried & this foundation is new to their line. I got a sample of Too Faced Amazing Face Oil-Free Close-Up Coverage Foundation in Warm Honey. I told the SA I am shade #128 in MUFE HD but slightly lighter right now. She swatched MUFE HD 128 and went over to swatch TF in shade Warm Honey & Honey Beige. Honey Beige was more on the neutral side but very close to MUFE HD 128. Warm Honey had more yellow in it.. I should've gotten a sample of Honey Beige though.

Description on Sephora.com

" Amazing Face Oil Free Close-Up Coverage Foundation 
What it is:
An oil-free, skin-smoothing liquid foundation that provides the illusion of airbrushed skin in seconds.

What it does:
Created with advanced Light Refraction Technology, this weightless foundation visibly reduces the appearance of pores and fine lines by diffusing and reflecting light. Bio Transformed Botanicals soften and relax the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, while Real Skin Technology allows for close-up perfection.Size: 1 oz "


Coverage: Light to medium coverage. 
Finish:Dewy & Natural.
Consistency: Very similar to NARS Sheer Glow but doesn't dry up fast.

-Natural looking
-Weightless and not cakey at all
-If you don't have ANY acne scars or acne, you'd be able to pull this off

-Bulky bottle no pump
- Feels oily when applied. 
- Wears off after 6-7 hours for me.

It goes on oily, the dewy finish makes my scars stand out even more. Very light coverage, I want a medium-full coverage. It's buildable, but you would have to apply like a few coats to get that full coverage. I even applied extra concealer after using the foundation. It was too oily for me & I don't even have oily skin, it's super dry! I finally set it with Ben Nye's Banana Visage powder & whoaa, big difference. Didn't look oily anymore. Still had a natural finish.

Throughout the day I had to blot twice & noticed it started to wear off. Then again, I NEED full coverage.

I like the natural look & would use this if I had clear skin, just not for me right now. 

As you can see, it's pretty light enough that you can still see the freckle on my nose.

Doubt that I can pull off this foundation; I have post breakout scars on my jawline right now. :( It looks really good on you though!
And YES, Angelika is a glitter bomb but I love the color too much! I usually tap my brush before applying, that way there's not as many glitters get onto my face.
