After reading so many reviews of beauty bloggers I got tempted and purchased Milani Conceal and Perfect Foundation. According to me the most hyped up drugstore foundations I’d ever heard about is from Milani. Let’s see what actually my opinion about this foundation.
Price: 1400 Rs
Qt: 30 ml
Direction of use:
As foundation – Apply a dime-sized amount of product with fingertips or a brush beginning at the center of the face, blending outward.
As concealer – Use a small amount of product and apply where additional coverage is needed in a tapping motion until blended.
My opinion about the product:
Coming out of the bottle Milani Conceal and Perfect Foundation is a pretty thin cream consistency, one thing I really like about this is that the pump squeezes out quite a small amount of product at once, on the image below that’s three pumps at once, meaning you’re really able to control how much product you want to use rather than being bombarded with too much. I find three pumps enough for one layer, but always do a minimum of two on the skin. In general I do quite like the foundation’s packaging and feel like it looks quite sleek with quality packaging for a budget friendly foundation.
So let’s start with it’s claims, first off being coverage – I’d agree with it’s claims about being medium coverage, but even with layering I struggle to get this to full, it does as promise feel really light on the skin and I can’t feel that I’m wearing this at all. Application of choice is definitely a sponge as the finish is quite natural, but with a demo-matte finish that I don’t think would be so matte that it would scare normal-dry skins away.
It is water resistant as well as sweat proof, once I ran to catch the bus (was sweating like hell) but this foundation didn’t moved much. My major complain is with longevity at least in the case of my skin this just doesn’t wear through the day well at all. It has long wear promises and it just doesn’t work as well as I expected it should. For me it’s too much effort, I could live with the idea of putting on two-three layers of foundation if I was going to get all day wear, but seeing this wear off some time early to mid afternoon is only a disappointment to me.
In India we have many other brands which are have foundation in budget price. So we careful, I would suggest to do full research before investing approximately 1500 bucks in a foundation.
