Review: Milani Conceal + Perfect Foundation

Milani Conceal + Perfect Foundation
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! 😀

More Cos De BAHA Serums…

Cos De Facial Serums
Cos De BAHA Facial Serums

I’ve been loving Cos De BAHA Facial Serums. I’m seeing improvements in my skin day after day. Here I have…

I’ve been on them for 2 weeks. A week behind my other Cos De BAHA Facial Serums. I don’t think that’s enough time to see actual results, but here are my thoughts on each one so far.

M.A Peptide Serum:

This serum is such an awesome moisturizer when the weather is much drier. On my oily skin, it works to keep my skin feeling hydrated without feeling and looking greasy. This serum does feel a bit sticky upon application, but the stickiness goes away as the serum sinks into the skin. I really liked the M.A Peptide Serum. I’ve been searching for a lightweight moisturizer, and this seems to work well for my skin type. I use it in the morning and night for a surge of moisture.

Glycolic Acid 10 AHA Serum:

I’m not a huge fan of glycolic acid because it tends to dry my skin out, and there’s this thing called the initial breakout that lasts forever. Well, it feels like it with Glycolic Acid. I’m not talking about tiny pimples either. I’m talking about huge cystic acne. They take forever to leave and are very painful to touch. Ugh. Who wants that? Glycolic acid always ends up breaking me out after a day or two of using it. There’s no way to avoid it, so I only use it a few times a week to prevent getting a massive, crazy breakout. I prefer to use it at night rather in the morning. It makes my skin look flaky and dry in the morning. I really hate it when my skin flakes or peels in the morning.

Retinol 2.5 Serum:

This retinol serum feels very nice on the skin. It’s gentle and hasn’t dried my skin out at all. I can’t tell what it has done to my skin, but I like the way it feels on my skin. I’ll keep using it. Let’s see what happens when I finish the whole bottle.

Hydroquinone Brightening Serum:

I had to try this one out. I always stay away from skin care products that contain hydroquinone. The reason why is because there are other ingredient choices to fade acne marks/discoloration with, such as vitamin c, kojic acid, and niacinamide. This brightening serum DOES WORK. Once I’m done with the bottle, I won’t buy another one. Maybe some time in the near future.

Hyaluronic Acid Serum:

My current Hyaluronic Acid serum is Cosmedica Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum. I wanted to try the Hyaluronic Acid Serum from another brand. I thought I would try the one from Cos De BAHA. Compared to Cosmedica, Cos De BAHA feels sticky when applying it to the skin. Once it sinks into the skin, it doesn’t feel sticky. It does keep my skin feeling hydrated just like Cosmedica. It’s not too bad. I’m still on the fence on which one I’m going to stick to using. I’ll have to keep using them then I’ll decide.

Check out other serums from Cos De BAHA here <<< Vitamin C, Niacinamide, Azelaic Acid

Look forward to an update on all of these facial serums soon! 😀

Love, Jen
