Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm Review

Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm Review

With all the recent hype about beauty balms, also called BB creams, I was eager to find a vegan option to try. What exactly is a beauty balm? It’s a multi action product that’s fast become an essential in most makeup bags. It’s part moisturizer, part primer, part foundation, part luminizer and often times also part sun screen as well. In other words – one product that really brings it all to the table. When one of my favorite cruelty free brands, Too Faced, came out with a Tinted Beauty Balm that was also vegan I had to give it a try.

What it is: “Our innovative beauty balm offers multiple skincare and makeup benefits in one simple step. Our powerful, multi-mineral complex instantly achieves a healthy glow and improves skin’s overall appearance.”

1. Light-diffusing pigments tint and add radiance (available in 6 shades).
2. Anti-aging, multi-mineral complex primes & prevents damage.
3. Moisturizes with oil-free hydration.
4. Hypo-allergenic and soothing for all skin types.
5. Broad-spectrum, chemical-free SPF 20.

Ingredients:  Titanium Dioxide 5.0%, Zinc Oxide 5.0%, Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Propylene Glycol, Octyldodecyl Neopentanoate, PEG/PPG-18/18 Dimethicone, Dimethicone, Cyclohexasiloxane, Magnesium Chloride, Potassium Chloride, Sodium Chloride, Zinc Chloride, Lysine, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract, Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract, Phytantriol, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tocopherol, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Aluminum Hydroxide, Stearic Acid, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Boron Nitride, Glycerin, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Palmitic Acid, Dextrin Palmitate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Butylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Mica, Iron Oxides.

** The stearic acid in this product is not animal derived.

Extras: Too Faced also has an online tutorial showing you the best way to wear this product.

Pros: This Beauty Balm has SPF, offers good coverage, and works well as a primer for other products. It also comes in several shades – Vanilla Glow, Snow Glow, Linen Glow, Creme Glow, and Beach Glow.

Cons: It can be a bit tricky to find the perfect color for your skin. Even though there are 6 shades offered, which is much more than most other brands are offering.

The verdict: While it didn’t replace my everyday moisturizer, it did a great job of adding a little extra moisture to my skin and prepping it for other makeup. The coverage was really great and almost on par with regular foundation. This makes the Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm great to have because it’s literally a one-step product.


Too Faced is one of my favorite brands out there. They are completely cruelty free and they have a lot of vegan options that are hard to find with other brands. Their items are high quality and worth every penny. I have yet to be disappointed by a Too Faced product, and the Tinted Beauty Balm also did not disappoint.

Have you tried this Beauty Balm? What were your thoughts?
