We all know that a good foundation is a hard thing to find. When you try to find a good drugstore foundation, it becomes a little harder. Thankfully, during my last trip to WalMart, I came across the Milani Conceal & Perfect 2-in-1 foundation and concealer. The liquid foundation promises medium to full coverage, is lightweight and oil-free, and has the added benefit of being water-resistant and sweat proof.
The Milani foundation was on the mark on what it promises, except for maybe being sweat proof. When I applied the foundation, it did give medium coverage, and when I added a little more of the foundation I was able to achieve full coverage without having the foundation being cakey or mask-like. In addition, it was long-lasting; at least for 8 to 10 hours. But I did not find the foundation to be sweat-proof, however. And if you live in the South during the summertime, sweat-proof is important. The last thing that you want is to put on your makeup in the morning, and arrive at work with less foundation than you began with. Now, I will say that Milani Conceal & Perfect also claims to be water-resistant. I did not test this claim, so I cannot state whether this is an accurate statement.
I do, overall, like this foundation. I love the coverage, the fact that it is lightweight, and that it is oil-free and long-wearing. It is one of the better drugstore foundations I have tried in a while. The Milani foundation conceals the redness on the sides of my nose, does not settle into my fine lines, and does not come at a department price.
The Milani Conceal & Perfect 2-in-1 foundation retails for $8.99. It can be purchased at Target, WalMart and local drugstores.
