Too Faced Magic Foundation Wand

Abracadabra! This Too Faced magic foundation wand (A$61.95) is brilliant. It is the most convenient and time-saving foundation I have ever used. I went into Kit Cosmetics asking for a foundation that was quick and easy to apply. If it takes too long, I won’t wear it. Kit Cosmetics sure didn’t disappoint. They listened to what I wanted and totally came through with the goods.

Just push the button at the bottom of the wand and the foundation is released through the brush head attached at the top of the wand. The brush makes blending foundation effortless and performs like a pro with zero effort. The foundation is undetectable and makes your complexion look flawless. The coverage is also buildable and the formula is pigment rich which means that a little goes a long way. The oil-free formula feels silky and hydrated and is great for all skin types. Apply all over your face or just where needed.

It takes little time to apply and is really convenient and time-saving – especially early in the morning when you have pressed snooze on the alarm clock one too many times.

When I first put this powder on, I thought it was good… but not great. It was just like any other powder, not very impressive. I looked in the mirror 20 minutes later and was pleasantly surprised. I could not stop admiring how perfectly clear my skin looked. It just made my skin look flawless and radiant and feel really soft and luxurious. It just takes a few minutes to really sink into the skin before your complexion is perfection.

You can wear this powder alone or as a finishing powder over your favourite primer and/or foundation. For the perfect amount of fresh powder every time, simply twist the shaver, swirl your brush into the powder and apply to your face. The powder in a way is like a pressed powder. The compact has a built-in shaver that shaves off the top layer of the powder creating a loose powder. It gives you the perfect amount of powder, leaving no mess. The powder is great for all skin types and is free of oil, talc, and parabens. The compact includes a custom kabuki brush for flawless application, otherwise you can use your own regular powder brush.
