Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation Review

Combat under eye circles, redness and other skin imperfections with this full coverage, water-resistant foundation plus concealer in one. 
A no mess, no drip pump dispenses just the right amount of fluid needed to achieve a flawless look and works around the clock to keep skin looking naturally perfect!

First Impression: 
The first time I tried on this foundation was in front of my camera, filming a first impression video. I had thought that the consistency wouldn't be that different from other liquid foundations I've tried so I used the amount I normally would - 2 pumps (WAY TOO MUCH) 😜

After editing the video, I decided not to upload it because I wasn't happy with the lighting and the foundation just looked too heavy. If I had posted that video up, it wouldn't have been an accurate representation of how I feel about the product.

Texture: Thick
Consistency: Tacky/Sticky because your girl honestly put on too much 😂
Coverage: Full

After filming, I had decided this is a bad foundation and sent it to imprisonment in the makeup drawer for a good two months. HAHA.

Subsequent Application: 
Somehow I was determined to make it work again, possibly because of the coverage it gave - I just can't seem to get over how full coverage it was. So I started to use it for work in the morning, only this time - with much lesser product. 

Method: 
  • Apply the foundation like how you would with a concealer - pea-size amount and dot all over your face or areas that need more coverage. 
  • Blend. 
  • Apply more 'dots' of foundation only if you need more coverage.

Final Review:
Okay I like this foundation especially on days when I'm going to the gym. Typically, I don't remove my makeup after work before I head to the gym. So yes, I workout with a full face of makeup. 😂 And no, I personally don't think doing that causes more breakout - but that's another topic which I might write about. 

This is definitely a full-full coverage foundation. If you are dealing with scarring or hyperpigmentation, this is one product you have to try. It can feel a little heavy on your face if you use too much so a little goes a long way for this one. 

Texture: Matte
Consistency: Slight tackiness without setting with powder but overall, feels comfortable on skin
Coverage: I still get full coverage using minimal amount
Repurchase? Probably not just because there's been quite a few releases from different brands offering medium to full coverage and having a lightweight feel to the skin - this to me is more important.

Decided to upload selfies to show you how it looked in real life.
Hopefully you could tell that the color was a little pink for me. My face looked greyish compared to my neck and chest.
