Milani Conceal + Perfect Foundation | Review

It was time for me to finally find a new, full coverage foundation; one that would forever disappear my troubled skin and leave it looking healthy and oil-free. The Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 has redefined full coverage foundation. I heard raves about Milani's foundation and I know that all of their other products are just as amazing as this foundation. With minimal flaws and at a reasonable price of $10, this product does wonders for the skin. 

It's always been a struggle for me to find the right full coverage foundation. With 14 shades in thecollection, there's a shade for everyone and it also has a pump. Two of the reasons I fell in love with this product at first glance.  
Some other things I loved about this product, after I have been using it for the past two weeks, is that it truly is a long wearing foundation. Especially for special occasions, performances, or night outs, this foundation fails to move off the face and does not appear over-dewy, like many full coverage foundations seem to do. With that being said, it is water resistant which is a plus and very common with many full coverage foundations so that it stays in place all day long.  

I also fell in love with how flawless my skin looked; having very sensitive, acne prone skin, uneven pigmentation, and the occasional dark circles after long nights of writing (or watching Netflix hehe). This product really does cover it all up. You don't even need to use a large amount of product to fully conceal everything. The trick to using this product and not feeling like you've caked on all your makeup is to use a pea sized amount and apply it with a damp beauty sponge, like the favored Beauty Blender, and even everything out for the ever-so-flawless finish. I can honestly say that this foundation looks so good in pictures...who doesn't want that?
Obviously not every single foundation is going to work for everybody and there's always something about a product that some people notice and some don't. One of the main things I noticed with this product was that it is a little hard to blend. Noting that it is a thicker formulation, it isn't something that takes away from the result of the product. As long as you use a damp sponge or really make sure you blend out the product evenly, you should be good to go and look more flawless than ever.

Another small flaw I noticed was that the shades tend to range a bit darker on the spectrum. So, I actually ended up purchasing the lightest shade they had. Sorry my paler friends! 

Despite those two small things I noticed, this product has been at a daily reach when I do my makeup. If you are looking for a fuller coverage foundation I would totally recommend this one. It really does make your skin look magically healthier and does a great job staying in place all day. Have you tried this yet?

  1. I really want to try this foundation but they don't offer a shade light enough. I hope they expand the shade range :)

    1. Sadly, the shades are a bit darker. It's so unfortunate because it is such a great foundation. Hopefully they come out with more and maybe you could lighten it up a bit with a lighter foundation? XX

  2. I've wanted to try this foundation for so long! I've heard it oxidises quite a bit so I'm always unsure of which shade to go for!

    1. I would recommend going a shade up! I went with the lightest shade and it really does match as it oxidizes. X

  3. Try to pick the correct shade while picking concealers for your skin that is the one nearest to your skin tone. It ought to be close to two shades lighter than your establishment.Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-In-1 Foundation Weight: 30ml Shade: 00AA Ivory
