Too Faced has always been one of my favourite brands when it comes to packagings. I mean look at it, how adorable does this tube look?! Back when they launched their Peaches & Cream collection I fell in love. Sadly at the time Too Faced was quite difficult to get your hands on from where I live so it took me a while to finally purchase one of the products from the range. Once I did get the chance to do so, I bought the Too Faced Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation. I have been trying it out for quite some time now, ever since Christmas to be exact, so I think it’s about time to review it. If you’re interested in finding out what this foundation is like and whether or not it’s worth the splurge, make sure you continue reading!
Like I mentioned I always love the packaging on Too Faced products. They’re always so quite and girly. This foundation isn’t an exception. The box in which the tube comes already looks flippin’ adorable. It’s made of very nice quality cardboard with a bit of a rubbery feel to it and it’s decorated with pink, gold and peachy tones. I really love this combination. I by the way really love the font they used to write down Peach Perfect. Isn’t it just stunning?
When you open up the box you’ll find the tube filled with foundation. The tube is even prettier than the box surrounding it and it’s also pretty big. The tube comes with 50 ml of product which is way more than you’d get if you buy any other foundation out there, so that’s a pretty cool detail. I also think that it’s a nice detail that the tube comes with a pump on it. This makes it more hygienic to use and it also makes the packaging look a little more luxurious.
Even though Too Faced is a high-end brand usually, I don’t think the price of this foundation is that bad. It’s only $27 and you get 48 ml of product. That equals $0,56 per ml. If you compare that to for example the MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation which costs $30 for 30 ml, that equals $1 per ml.
Too Faced Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation – $27
Enough about that, let’s start talking about the shade. The Too Faced Peach Perfect Foundation comes in 12 shades, ranging from pretty pale shades to pretty deep shades. Of course most of the foundations are a bit in the middle and are rather light, but well, I’m happy that they do both have very pale shades and deep shades. Most brands don’t.
The shade I ended up buying is called Snow. This is the lightest shade available. I’m very pale and usually the palest foundations aren’t even pale enough for me. Surprisingly enough this foundation actually matches my skin tone pretty well. It’s a very pretty snow white colour with neutral to pink undertones. I personally have a neutral undertone so this does match my skin tone pretty darn well. I’m really happy about that.
Having discussed the shade, let’s move on to the claims. Too Faced is always very extreme in their claims, so just like they always do they make this product sound like magic in a tube. According to Too Faced this is a transfer-resistant medium coverage foundation. It’s supposed to create a smooth canvas for flawless, comfortable matte wear using their Exclusive Comfort Matte Technology, that never is cakey or mask-like. It’s supposed to be photo-friendly, oil-controlling and it’s supposed to have a smooth flawless finish. They also claim that it will last for up to 14 hours and that it smells like peach and sweet fig milk.
The last part of the claim, where they claim this product smells like peach and sweet fig milk, is definitely true. It’s just the best smell ever. The foundation smells very fruity and fresh and it always feels very refreshing when applying it in the morning. It’s a great way to wake yourself up a little. However, the scent is quite strong so if you aren’t a fan of scented foundations or if you just don’t like this particular scent, you should keep that in mind when considering buying this foundation.
Aside from the scent Too Faced claims that this is a matte foundation with oil-controlling benefits. The mattifying effect is caused by their Exclusive Comfort Matte Technology. On their website they don’t tell us what this technology does so it might just be a fancy word for nothing too special, but it sounds interesting. I mean, if a foundation can be mattifying and comfortable at the same time, I’m in!
But what’s even more important to me than a matte finish and a nice scent is the formula of the foundation. The texture, the way it feels and the way it acts on my face. I like my foundations to glide on like a dream. I’m not someone who is willing to spend a good couple of minutes on blending in my foundation. I want something that is quick and easy and most importantly fool proof. I don’t want a foundation that I really need to be focused on while blending in order not to get unblended patches of foundation everywhere.
This foundation isn’t completely that. It definitely isn’t the most smooth foundation to apply. In fact it has a kind of odd sticky feel to it. I think it’s hard to describe what it is like in words, but sticky is the most fitting word I guess. This stickiness will definitely come in handy when it comes to staying power, but in terms of application that aspect isn’t the best thing in the world. It really takes quite a bit of effort to apply this foundation and that does hold me back from using this foundation. Especially when it’s early in the morning and I just want a product that goes on in a split second and I don’t have to worry about.
Because the foundation is a bit of a pain in the ass to apply, it’s one you need to be careful with. If you’re not you could end up with slightly orange patches here and there. So in order to prevent that use good lightening and make sure you blend it an extra time when you’re applying it. Cause once it has set, you’re done.
In terms of coverage I’m sure this is one of the best foundations I have tried so far. I mean look at it, it covers up my complexion pretty much fully. It takes away pretty much all of my redness, all of my blemishes are covered and most of my dark circles are gone. This is definitely a great product if you’re struggling with either very blemished skin or just very red and uneven skin.
For me this isn’t my favourite effect. Like I’ve mentioned in previous foundation reviews nowadays I’m all about natural foundations that do even out my complexion pretty decently, but aren’t too cakey and heavy. This foundation definitely is the opposite of that. It doesn’t feel super lightweight on the skin, in fact it’s a foundation that you do feel throughout the day. It can also look a little bit cakey if you went a bit overboard with the amount of product you used so that’s something you need to keep in mind as well.
What I do really like about this foundation is its staying power. You can say a lot about this product, but it does stay in place like no other. I think that this is caused by the stickiness in the texture, but whether that’s true or not, it stays in place all day and that’s super amazing!
Overall I don’t think that the Too Faced Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation is my favourite product on earth. I’m a huge fan of the scent and I love the fact that it stays in place so well, but it’s just not the type of foundation I love using nowadays. I am sure that back in the day this could’ve been a big favourite, back when I was in love with more full coverage products, but nowadays, mwah. I have tried things that match my description of a perfect foundation better. However, if you do love full coverage foundations that stay in place forever, this could just be what you’re looking for!
That was everything for today’s post. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know if you have any experience with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Foundation, and if so, let me know how you like it!
