Another blog post, another base combination. I've been obsessed with buying new base products recently and this certainly isn't the last post about new additions.

Too Faced is a brand I've loved and trusted for years, but funnily enough I've never tried out any base products, but if the amazingly buttery shadows and Better Than Sex mascara is anything to go by, it's going to be amazing. I literally have enough primer and foundation to do a small towns make up for a year, so I'm really hard to impress, but the Born This Way foundation did just that. The Hangover X primer? It's good, it's nice but it didn't work any miracles.

The Born This Way foundation is very much like the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk, in that it gives a medium but buildable coverage that looks extremely natural and 'your skin but better,' like. It isn't overly glowy but it gives off a tint of healthy looking radiance. This foundation claims to do a lot, but it certainly lives up to it's main claim of 'undetectable coverage.' Who doesn't want to look like they have naturally photo shopped skin? And in true Too Faced style, it's packaged beautifully with a quirky, girly edge.
I have quite dry skin and this didn't cake on me at all, it gave me a satin/matte finish and I felt like I could of gotten away without powder on top.

The Hangover X primer is perfect if you have dull, dry, just really lifeless and not at all radiant skin. I'm blessed with naturally radiant healthy glowing skin that's pretty normal and a little dry in Winter so this is a product I could of done without.
However, I do still really like this, because not only does it do that, but it leaves my skin feeling extremely smooth, it almost resurfaces my skin to this perfect canvas ready for any paint (foundation.) I've used a couple of foundations with this primer so far and they've all applied amazingly and made my skin look like I eat my 5 a day and have 8 hours sleep.
Like the foundation, it does live up to what it claims to do, it feels refreshing on the skin, it feels like a breath of fresh air and my skin loves it.
Not only all of that, but it's my favourite type of primer, it isn't thick or full silicone, it doesn't roll off my face or feel heavy, it's such a light, breathable liquid that feels like water on the skin.  AND again, packaging goals.
