Milani Conceal + Perfect Foundation in Porcelain & Ivory

I usually use Dr Jart+ Silver Label Rejuvenating BB Cream, but I’ve been using Milani Conceal + Perfect Foundation for about 2 weeks. I have the shades Porcelain and Ivory. I picked these foundations up because I wanted to try a drugstore foundation instead. I didn’t want to pay 20+ for a foundation anymore. I’m really glad I did. Before I do a review on the Milani Conceal + Perfect Foundation, here’s more information on this foundation.

Here are my thoughts:

Let me start off by saying that Milani Conceal + Perfect Foundation is easily accessible. I don’t have to buy it from a specific place. I can go to Target and pick it up. They have a variety of shades that look natural on the skin. As I mentioned before, I have Porcelain and Ivory. Porcelain is lighter compared to Ivory. Ivory is a tad darker with yellow undertones. Porcelain matches me more. Ivory makes me look too yellow. The texture of the foundation is easy to blend into the skin. It does conceal imperfections better compared to other drugstore foundations I’ve used. If you have really prominent post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, you will need a separate concealer for heavier, fuller coverage.

This foundation does have a fragrance. Take it or leave it. I got used to it, so it doesn’t bother me as much anymore. Coverage is medium to full coverage. If used alone without a makeup primer, medium coverage. With a makeup primer, full. Unfortunately, the foundation doesn’t last long on the skin. I’ve noticed that it comes off easily (with and without a makeup primer). Milani does make the complexion appear smoother. I think I would purchase this foundation again, since it actually does provide better coverage compared to other drugstore foundations I’ve used. My skin is clearing up rapidly, so I won’t need to wear a lot of foundation anymore. It works. It’s pretty much half the price of my Dr Jart+ Silver Label Rejuvenating BB Cream too. I wouldn’t mind saving on foundation.

Have you used this foundation before? Share what you think about it! Have a nice day! 😀

Review: Maybelline Fit Me! Loose Finishing Powder

Maybelline Fit Me! Loose Finishing Powder
Maybelline Fit Me! Loose Finishing Powder

I decided to try a loose powder over a compact powder. I hardly ever use a loose powder because it’s messy. The texture and overall result using a loose powder is very different. It clings to the skin much differently. I find it to be more patchy and uneven. Anyways, I’ve never tried Maybelline Fit Me! Loose Finishing Powder before, and there’s nothing wrong with trying something new. Let’s see what happens!

Review on Maybelline Fit Me! Loose Finishing Powder:

I’ve used this loose powder a couple of times. I didn’t enjoy it. It made my skin look dry and made my pores look larger. I have the one in Fair. The shade works on my skin, but I simply didn’t like the way it made my skin look. While making my skin look extremely dry and pores larger, it also accentuated fine lines, wrinkles, and acne. It’s a no-go. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone. Don’t buy it.

Love, Jen
