Unless you live under a rock in the world of makeup, you have probably already heard about this Conceal + Perfect, 2- In- 1 Foundation from Milani ($9). I was hesitant to try this at first because I typically do not go for full coverage foundations due to the fact that they can become “cakey”, especially since I do have oilier skin. However, I heard so many good things about it and finally wanted to try it out for myself.
The color range is alright but a little more on the yellow- ish/ warm side. I have olive skin, so for me I do not really mind this (I bought the shade Sand Beige, not the shade in the picture) and Sand Beige matches my neck perfectly.
This foundation claims to be:
- Medium- Full coverage
- Lightweight, oil-free formula
- Water resistant and sweat-proof
I have to say, I do agree with every one of these. When I first applied the foundation (overtop of my Nivea Men Aftershave balm) I was quite surprised at the amount of coverage it gave without looking like a thick layer of makeup. It comes out very thick from the pump which scared me at first, but after it is blended into the skin (I use a makeup buffing brush), it just looks like a better, more even form of my own skin. Up close, I could not even really see the foundation on my face. After, I applied concealer and powdered my face with the Coty Air-spun lose powder like I usually do and it gave me a flawless look all day.
The first time I wore this foundation, I wore it for 12 hours straight and yes, it was a little shiny, however it was nothing I couldn’t stand. It stayed in place all day and I really enjoyed it. Even though it is full coverage, it can be worn as a daily foundation because it is so comfortable and lightweight.
Conclusion: Yes, this foundation is fantastic, especially if you have oily skin and are on the hunt for a full coverage foundation, regardless of the price.
