Beauty Balms continue to be a hot topic in the beauty world. With new releases on the way from Stila and 3LAB (and offerings from other exciting, as yet unannounced brands) alongside this gorgeous new release from glamorous US brand Too Faced, we’ll be spoiled for choice before the year is out.
The Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm is a powerhouse of a formula. With an anti-ageing multi-mineral complex of magnesium, potassium and zinc alongside energising ginseng and ginkgo biloba, the skin is instantly energised and brightened. Protective Vitamins A & E as well as an infusion of Chamomile work to soothe and nourish the skin, while an oil-free hydrating complex moisturises the skin.
Further protection is included in the form of a broad-spectrum, chemical-free SPF of 20 which offers optimum protection from the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays.
The Beauty Balm comes in four shades: Vanilla Glow, Cream Glow, Nude Glow and Beach Glow. Vanilla Glow is a neutral toned pale shade, Cream Glow is slightly more pink and is touch darker, Nude Glow is darker again and is more yellow toned, and Beach Glow infuses the complexion with a healthy, tanned glow. The sheerness means that each shade is versatile.
The balm is so soft and lightweight on the skin, feeling more akin to a moisturiser than a foundation. The finish is sheer but the coverage is impressive – it manages to conceal pigmentation without masking the texture of the complexion.
Apply the easy-to-blend Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm all over the face as you would a foundation for a radiant finish. It can be used as a primer for foundation, or finish with powder for a more natural look.
