Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-In-1 Review

Milani Conceal + Perfect

Hey! I recently bought Milani’s Conceal + Perfect 2-In-1 Foundation and Concealer due to much hype – here’s what I thought.

This is what Milani claims their foundation offers: “Combats under-eye circles, redness and other skin imperfections with this full coverage, water-resistant foundation plus concealer in one.”

Application

If you have researched this foundation the first thing you may hear about this product is how thick it is. That is not a lie, this foundation really does have a paste type consistency. However, that is what makes this product so different from regular drugstore foundations, which tend to be much thinner. I apply this on the back of my hand and dot it around the face (similar to Nars Sheer Glow).

Both a beauty blender and a brush would work with this foundation – however, I think a beauty blender works better; purely down to the thick consistency and the fact that it doubles as a concealer (tapping not swiping motion required). If you have great skin, 1 pump is all that is needed, I use between 1. 5 – 2 pumps, the coverage being super buildable.

Durability

Once applied, this foundation has a satin type feel, not matte but not dewy. My main issue with this foundation is that I find it quite the challenge to set. I find myself layering powder all over my face, and yet the foundation still manages to transfer very easily. It honestly does feel lightweight considering how thick the product is, which is a positive. Considering durability, it does last all day – although blotting may be required. I have combination skin, with an oily t-zone and I needed to powder up after around 5 hours.

Shade

A bonus of Milani’s Conceal and Protect is that it offers 15 shades, which is excellent for a drugstore foundation. I have Indian skin with a warm undertone so finding a drugstore foundation in the right shade is a nightmare. I love the inclusivity of the range, that can be really hard to find. In this instance, Milani has pulled it off. This foundation is the closest shade to my own I have found (Sand Beige 06) – which is lovely especially as it is so affordable (ยฃ13.95).

Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-In-1 Review – Final Thoughts

Whether it meets its claims – I think it does. Although I wouldn’t use this as a concealer (a lighter shade is needed under the eyes), it does manage to conceal blemishes and evens out skin tone. Coverage is certainly medium, however, it is quite easily buildable and can be full coverage. I struggle to believe that a foundation can be completely water-resistant but I have noticed that this foundation is much harder to remove than other foundations I own. It could simply be down to the thickness of the product. This foundation can last all day, although I would be aware of the sun as this formula would be prone to melting. All in all, I will be repurchasing the Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-In-1 Foundation and Concealer, and would recommend especially to those who love high coverage foundations.
