A while back I purchased the Too Faced Amazing Face SPF 15 Powder Foundation in Vanilla Creme from Apothica. Even though I always wear SPF 30 moisturizer on my face and neck every day, I never mind using another product with SPF to help protect my skin. That made me decide to try this foundation. Be aware, I think Apothica sells an older version of the product that’s SPF 15, which is why I included a picture of my box. Too Faced’s site now has an SPF 20 version available.

Does it live up to its claims?
Yes. I think it’s a fairly nice foundation. I think the packaging is really cute. It’s got a mirror and sponge underneath the foundation, though I don’t use that for application. I apply this with a duofiber brush. It works fine with my slightly oily t-zone. It’s got a nice texture, which I’m guessing is due to the bamboo silk. The color works pretty well with my skintone, though it’s a tad darker than I like. My skintone usually works best with pale neutral or pale neutral leaning warm foundations, as I’ve got creamy undertones with a bit of beige, a touch of peach and a dash of yellow. I have a slight pink overtone, and inexperienced makeup artists often try to match me to pink toned foundation, which looks awful.

Would I purchase again?
Probably. This is the first pressed foundation I’ve found in a long time that actually works fairly well with my skintone. It’s more expensive than I’m used to paying for my foundation, but it’s nice to have the convenience of pressed for tossing in my purse and taking with me.
