Company’s Description

A five-in-one complete coverage beauty balm that perfects, mattifies, primes, moisturizes, and protects with SPF 20. This is the first complete coverage beauty balm that evens skintone and banishes imperfections with an air-buffed second-skin finish. The result? Flawless-looking skin. The cream-to-powder formula provides long-lasting, complete, and buildable coverage with the benefits of five products: it perfects, mattifies, primes, moisturizes, and protects with SPF 20. Blend this lightweight formulation onto your skin with a snap-in-place Air Buff Brush specifically created with Too Faced’s signature cruelty-free Teddy Bear Hair.

Too Faced has come out with a pressed-form BB cream, which has an SPF of 20. Too Faced claims this product will give you flawless skin with complete coverage while mattifying, priming, and moisturizing. This BB Creme comes in five (5) shades. My shade and the one depicted, below, is Vanilla Glow.

Too Faced Cosmetics

Packaging: 9/10

This BB cream comes in interesting packaging. It’s in a clear, plastic jar with a twist-off cap. The top of the cap holds a small, retractable brush.

Quality: 8.5/10

This BB product is in a pressed, cream formula. It’s stiff in the pot–like a thick body butter.

It gives your skin light to almost-medium coverage that’s very subtle, but noticeable. It’s certainly not “complete coverage.” It’s a cream-to-powder formula that’s streaky unless you’re diligent about blending it in thoroughly. It’s not super moisturizing, so those with dry skin should use a liquid formula BB cream instead.

This product, unlike most BB creams I’ve tested, does a good job of not becoming shiny or oily. The finish is still semi-matte after four (4) hours of wear.

This face product gives you effective sun protection via the ingredient Titanium Dioxide.

Ease of Use: 8.75/10

You need to be diligent in blending this cream into the skin to avoid streakiness. Application will take an extra-long time if you use the brush that comes with the BB Creme because it’s small.

Price: 8.75/10

For $39.00 you get 0.98 ounces (0.28 grams) of product. Compared to the other BB creams sold at Sephora, this is a pretty average price-point and amount of product–maybe on the slightly more expensive side.
