Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer and Even-Touch Powder Foundation

Hello Everyone


Today I have two product reviews on two Milani's Foundations. I know I'm a little late with the first review. I'm very picky about the foundations that I use in my makeup routine so let's see if these two foundations are a Yay or Nay or me. * Product information is courtesy of www.milanicosmetics.com



Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer


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!


My Thoughts 

Let's start with the good. This is a creamy medium to full coverage foundation that lasts most of the day. Even though this foundation is creamy, it feels lightweight which is good because the weather is getting warmer.  I love that this foundation comes with a pump that is very simple to use. I also love that this is a 2-in-1 Foundation and Concealer. I can tell that this foundation covers any puffiness and my dark circles (especially if I'm lacking sleep).

Now for the bad...I don't like the smell. This foundation has an (I hate to say it no offense to anyone), old lady light floral scent. It's not overpowering and the scent does tend to fade. It's just the initial application that the scent bothers me. This foundation does come in a wide range of shades, but the shades seem a little off. By now I'm pretty good at choosing the correct foundation for myself, but when I got this foundation it seems a bit off or at least in photos. I wear Tan (09), but in pictures it tends to me look like I have a unnatural honey mustard color glow. I really have to watch where I take photos wearing this foundation. Overall I really like this foundation, and this is one of my go to foundations. 


Even-Touch Powder Foundation 


The makeup equivalent of soft-focus lighting, this medium-to-full coverage powder has a hidden agenda—it conceals your imperfections to reveal an enviable complexion. 



Even-Touch Powder Foundation is highly blendable and can be used as both a setting powder and a quick touch-up throughout the day.



My Thoughts 

So by now if you follow me and read my reviews, you already know that there's no time for any BS here. This powder foundation is defintely a Nay for me. Let the ranting begin lol... This is actually my first powder foundation and I wasn't impressed. It took forever for me to get the powder on my brush, and when I did it was barely noticeable. I'm not one to give up on a makeup products, but this product is just so bad.  I know that that powder foundation is different from traditional foundation, but after about an hour of application, it felt and looked like I wasn't even wearing any foundation (I know that's not always a bad thing). The color matches me perfectly (Caramel), but this foundation almost reminds me of a translucent powder. 

I only recommend this powder foundation if you truly don't like wearing makeup because like I just mentioned it doesn't feel like you're wearing anything at all. The swatches took a lot of effort to get them to show this good on my hand. The only positve qualities about this foundation is the foundation doesn't have a scent which is good, and the gold packaging is really pretty.  I'll probably wear this throughout the Summer, since I don't like to let my makeup collect dust, but this foundation isn't one of my go to products.

  2. The first Milani foundation sounds like something I would like to try. I think I'll skip the second one. I agree the packaging is pretty on the powder foundation. Thanks for the reviews!

  5. I have the liquid foundation and I can definitely agree that the shades are off. I have the lightest shade and it's way too dark for me, but when I mix it with a lighter foundation it works. I'm excited to try it in the summer when I use self tanner. I don't remember the scent exactly , but I know I didn't like it. I also try the powder one a long time ago and I think it broke my face out. That's shame it doesn't work out for you Pilar! Have you tried using it as a setting powder over a liquid foundation, rather than by its self?

    1. I'm so glad to know it's not just me that thinks the liquid shades are off! That's too bad the powder foundation broke your face out! I really don't like it all that much. You know I haven't tried it as setting powder over a liquid foundation. I'm going to give that a try! I'm surprised I didn't think about that lol! Thanks for the suggestion Ashley!

  6. I know what you mean, if it doesn't have a nice scent, then I don't like it either. And the same with shampoos. Have you ever tried Clinique foundations at Macy's? That's what I use. It's silky smooth, and light scented.

    Have a good week, Pilar.

    1. I haven't tried any Clinique Foundations, but I hear so many positive reviews about the brand. I'm very picky when it comes to scents especially makeup! Have a great week Sheri!

  8. I am sorry the foundation did not work for you. I use Mac studio fix powder plus foundation and I really love it. I don't use liquid foundation on my face. But I guess being lightweight is a good thing. Great (no BS) review, doll!

    1. Thanks! I like liquid foundations that aren't too heavy feeling on my face. The MAC studio fix you're talking about is another product I've heard positive reviews!

  10. I love it when foundations have a pump! Don't know if i could deal with the smell of this one either though. I have tried the power and do really enjoy it. XO
