Oh, Too Faced, your packaging is just so stunning! You only need to take a quick glance at the two quick shots I've taken of Too Faced's brand new Cocoa Powder Foundation to realise its a gem. Allow me to introduce you to Too Faced's latest foundation revolution - Cocoa Powder. In all honesty, Id never even heard of a foundation as a powder before, so I was certainly intrigued to see how Cocoa Powder would fare. Before I tell you about the results I found after using Cocoa Powder and whether I'd recommend it to you, I'll tell you a little bit about the magic of Cocoa Powder. First things first - it smells of chocolate. Mmm, chocolate! It's so beautifully scented and even leaves your skin with that sweet lingering chocolate smell - delicious! The foundation itself is an anti oxidant rich matte rose petal finish - who wouldn't want a rose petal finish? There are a total of eight shades available and I used 'light'. It also has skincare benefits due to the moisturising cocoa butter in contains that moisturises your skin. Cocoa Powder has a beautifully soft texture and applies like a dream.
So, is it as good as it sounds and looks?! To me, it's perfect for using as a finishing powder. I have a lot of freckles and always go to a full coverage foundation and sadly Cocoa Powder didn't offer me the coverage that I needed. I applied the Cocoa Powder as a foundation using my Lola Kabuki brush but sadly I didn't feel confident enough to wear it as a normal foundation. I have found that the best way for me to use this is to apply a light amount of my usual foundation and then apply the Cocoa Powder on top. It's true what they say about the finish, it's lovely. It leaves my skin looking healthier with a little added glow and of course, my favourite finish of the matte look! If you tend to not wear an awful lot of makeup, I think Cocoa Powder would be perfect for you to wear as a foundation and if you're like me and you like a little extra coverage then I think you'd enjoy using Cocoa Powder as a finish powder. Plus, who doesn't want to smell like chocolate?! The Cocoa Powder retails at £28.00 and is available in eight different shades from light to deep tan.
