Drugstore Gem: Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-IN-1 Foundation and Concealer
Milani is a phenomenal brand when it comes to makeup products are drug store prices, but they really out did themselves when creating this foundation. I personally have been using this foundation for the past year, and it has been my go-to ride or die, even compared to the most high end foundations. It retails for under 15$ at drugstores, and you get a good amount of product. (Also, a little goes a long way)
Unfortunately, Milani is not sold at every drugstore in Canada, but it is still easy to find. You can either buy it online at Milani's website, at Rexall or select Walmart locations.
As someone who has been using this foundation nearly every single day for the past year, I can easily say that I have no complaints. This foundation doesn't oxidize after you put it on the skin, so the colour is true to skin tone. It also is incredibly full coverage, which is extremely hard to find at the drugstore. The whole purpose and idea behind this foundation is that it is essentially a '2 in 1', meaning it can act as both a concealer and a foundation. For maximum coverage, I would recommend using both a separate concealer and foundation, but for a more natural look this does such a good job at both. In terms of coverage, it covers red spots and pigmentation beautifully, as well as dark circles. It also doesn't grab to any dry patches, and wears on the skin for a long time. My biggest perk with this product is the fact that it is extremely full coverage, but does not look 'cakey' on the skin whatsoever.
I have drier skin, and this product still makes me look dewy and does not dry me out.
I find that this product also sets with a powder great, and both liquid and powders layer on top if it beautifully. There is a variety of colours to chose from. Packaging wise, the product comes in a high-end class bottle with a pump ( a super good quality one). Another perk: This baby is water resistant! I know, it's too good to be true.
I definitely recommend checking this product out, but be careful- it'll replace your other foundations and I promise you will love it immediately.
