Too Faced Born this Way
I used to use IT Foundation for aging skin but they don’t make it anymore. Born this Way looks like a good replacement
So can anyone help? The shade names leave me bewildered. What exactly is swan??
It is an expensive foundation and I don’t want to make the wrong choice. It costs too much to ship it back. Can anyone help? I have older dry skin with some lines and I always ordered light in other brands.
I appreciate your help.
I have been using Born this Way for a couple of years and love it! Doesn’t settle into lines and is very buildable. I use the Michael Todd sonic makeup brush and get a flawless finish. It’s a medium coverage foundation. The pictures of the individual colors on HSN are a litte darker than in person imo. There are warm, neutral and cool shades in every color but I don’t think any of them have that awful yellow tint found in many foundations. If you can’t get to a Sephora or Ulta to be color matched, your best bet is to look at the graphic with the multiple people’s faces. In the details of each color it gives an indication as to undertones.
Swan has neutral undertones. This is a very, very fair color.
Maybe that is the best option. There is a Sephora in a local mall. Going in person might be best. My alternative choice was Benefit’s Flawless foundation. Hoping they can show me both products there. Maybe I can purchase it there and save shipping.
Wish HSN would do sampler packages like QVC’s T.I.L.I (try it love it) I wound up buying full size products based on trying samples.
Thanks for the input.
Jersey, going to Sephora is the best idea. That way you will be able to try lots of foundations. You can always order here if Too Faced works for you. Periodically HSN offers a free primer or brush with Born this Way. BTW Too Faced always has free shipping from HSN.
I can’t comment on Born this way, although I have been tempted by it as well, but before you ditch IT, have you tried the Illumination CC foundation? I thought it might be too sparkly or dewy, but I actually really like it.
