An Amazing Surprise!

So, yesterday I had work from 15-21. I wasn’t really too motivated, but when I opened my closet at work and saw this, my day quickly became a whole lot better. One of my best friends, Helene, had gotten me the Too Faced “Born This Way” Foundation!


The note says “Open me“..

I’ve been wanting this foundation for so long as I have tried it before and it literally works wonders. The thing is, they don’t sell Too Faced makeup in Norway, so whenever we want something from there we have to look to our neighbor countries, Sweden or Denmark, to find the closest Sephora. Helene’s mom was in Poland, where they have Sephora, so she asked if we needed anything and I kindly asked if she could purchase this for me if I sent her the money. But then they didn’t have it in my shade, so  Helene ordered it for me online as she was ordering some stuff from Sephora anyways.

So, I was actually going to pay for it. But then she surprised me with this in my closet at work along with the cutest note ever saying that she wanted to give the foundation to me because I deserved a present, awhhh.


“Elsker deg” is Norwegian for “Love you” ♥ How lucky am I to have such great friends? This surprise really made my day and made going to work a lot easier.



Mine is in the shade ‘Porcelain’. As I’ve already said, this foundation is so amazing. When it comes to foundation it’s really the only makeup product that I am willing to pay a lot for. I previously had the “YSL Touche Éclat” foundation, which is amazing, but expensive. And so is this, really. It was around £32. But I actually think it’s worth it. At least for me, as I don’t use too much foundation at the time and it will last me very long. Of course it is very much of an individual choice what kind of makeup you like to spend your money on and I think there are many great options out there if you’re looking for a cheaper option. One that I have previosly used is the “IsaDora Nude Sensation“(£16), which is also great.


It is a very light weight foundation. Yet it covers a lot and gives a very natural finnish to your skin. Also, the packaging is so pretty, haha..


This is a very happy me, wearing just my new foundation and nothing more. Don’t I just have the sweetest friend ever? ♥

Have you tried this foundation? What is your favorite foundation?

  1. Aw that’s so sweet of your friend! Like I said in my last post, I always stick to the same routine if it works for me and I’ve used Rimmel Match Perfection for years, but sometimes I do want to branch out and try some new foundation. This is so flattering on you – it looks so natural but makes your skin look even and glowing! Love to see a review in the future x
