Too Faced Fall Collection 2009: Too Faced Primed and Poreless Review

The Too Faced Fall Collection 2009 zoomed onto shelves very early at Sephora so early in fact it's not even updated on their site as of yet. It's quite a selection of goodies one item in particular is really outstanding (that review is coming in a few). For now let me tell you that Too Faced joins in on all the primer games this season with a brand new primer of it's own. Too Faced Primed and Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer is the first facial primer that the company has had in it's collection to my knowledge. Interestingly enough it's also the most unique primer I've come across as it comes in a beige shade that seems to even out my skin tone a tad bit.

We all probably share at least one thing in common, a desire for flawless skin. Proper prepping and priming is key to creating a good working canvas for making and achieving a flawless, perfect look.

Too Faced Primed and Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer aids you on your quest for perfect skin nirvana with an interesting primer formulated to wear under bronzers, foundations, and powders to keep skin radiant and fresh. The primer pretty much mimics the formula of many popular primers today with a silicon-like base that dries down to a powdery finish. Unlike many primers like this it doesn't make me itchy, doesn't make me feel like I have a mask on, and doesn't pill. I'm still not the biggest fan in the world of silicon or silicon feeling primers but I'm trying to find the joy in them.

Even though it feels like a typical primer it's actually a bit different in one case. This one case is in fact what I think makes it special. The primer is a translucent beige shade that somewhat evens out my skin tone. It's considered colorless and invisible for the most part but I felt like it not only smoothed my skin but also evened out my complexion slightly.

The primer glides onto my face without looking or feeling heavy and mask-like. I can't speak for filling pores as my pores are non existent but I think it'll make a perfect filler. It allows my foundation particularly powder to apply easily with little fuss. I didn't notice any extended wear for my foundation but it does keep my foundation fresh without it oxidizing quickly.

All in all a very good primer and worthy of a check out. Too Faced Primed and Porless is $30 and is available now from Sephora.

Anyone check this out yet?

I hauled it with the shadows about a week ago. I tried it 3 times. First over my regular moisturizer (paradise regained by Lush) then over my "light moisturizer" (pomegranate by Korres) and then just on fresh clean skin. All 3 times it made me very itchy so it ended up going back to Ulta. I don't have very sensitive skin and do have larger pores around my nose on my cheeks and was hoping to see some results but each time I had to wash and start over. While at Ulta, I picked up the Revlon firming primer for normal/combo skin types. It was $13.99 for 1oz vs. the toofaced $30 for 1oz and does NOT contain silicone/dimethicone and is pretty decent for the price. It dries fast and creates a smooth surface for foundation application. It doesn't minimize pores but it does everything it claims to do. For the price, I will definitely keep using it!
