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! 😀

elf Makeup Foundation
elf Flawless Finish Foundation

Here’s an update on elf Flawless Finish Foundation. I’ve used this foundation for about 1 month on and off. The first shade I used was called Lily (fairest fair with yellow undertones). I’m not using it anymore. It makes my skin too yellow. I’m currently using Swan (fairest fair with peach undertones). I really wanted to try Pearl (fairest fair with neutral undertones). That’s if I’ll ever get to that point. haha. Let’s begin this updated review! 🙂

Shade: The elf Flawless Finish Foundation has a lot of shades to choose from. That’s awesome. You’re not stuck with 5 shades like the elf Acne Fighting Foundation collection.

Texture: This liquid foundation is lightweight. It feels like your typical liquid foundation. It’s not thick.

Finish: It is semi-matte. It gave my skin a dewy appearance. Some people might like that, but I have oily skin. It just looks like my skin produced more oil.

Coverage: I would love to say that it’s light-moderate or full coverage. It’s not. It’s has light coverage. I had to use more product to move up to moderate coverage, and that didn’t work as I hoped for. Even with a makeup primer.

Fragrance: It has a subtle fragrance. Take it or leave it.

SPF?: None.

Breakouts?: I haven’t noticed any.

Final Thoughts:

Those are my thoughts. Leave your own thoughts on the elf Flawless Finish Foundation in the comment section. 🙂
