Eye Primer -MILANI -Eyeshadow Primer

on 8/16/2018 8:29:00 AM


In my opinion, this primer and the blushes are the gems of the Milani brand. I used UD's primer for years (and loved it) but when Milani became available in my country, I switched primers. The primer really extends the longevity of my eyeshadow and keeps it looking fresh all day. I have oily lids and without a primer, my eyeshadow won't stay on all day. The primer is super easy to apply, the tube is hygienic, it gives a brilliant result, it's not oily and it's cheap. What's not to love?

Primer/ Corrector -MILANI -Make It Dewy Setting Spray

on 8/15/2018 5:52:00 PM


This formula is really an issue and definitely not as good as the make it last version milani carries. It made my face very sticky and added way too much glow to the point where I just looked oily. Something about it reminded me of sunscreen, in the way it felt heavy and greasy on the face. Then, the nozzle just gets entirely clogged up and it squirts out instead of misting. I even tried putting it in another spray bottle (the amazing pixi one) and it clogged up that nozzle too!

But if you're looking for a glowy spray, the pixi glow mist and the hard candy primer spray are both amazing.

Liquid -MILANI -Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer


If you're looking for a yellow-toned foundation, this is one of a good drugstore option. I am light skinned with yellow undertone, and I always have a problem with finding drugstore foundation, because their shade is always either too pink or too dark. That being said, this foundation's shade range isn't exactly great. I am NC15-20 in MAC, I bought the shade 01 Creamy Vanilla and is slightly too dark, although it is yellow. I'm pretty sure now that they've expanded the range, I will match 00B Light Beige.

Coverage is medium-high. Lasting power is ok. Formula wise, it's pretty thick and creamy. It doesn't hold up oil really well, so if you're oily skin like me you might need a good matte primer/ powder. If you're less oily than me, I'm pretty sure it's ok.

Overall, it's an OK foundation. It's not outstanding, but the price and undertone is spot on for me.

Pro: good yellow undertone (if you're looking for one), reasonable price, good coverage
Cons: doesn't hold up oil well

Will I repurchase? Probably for a mixer, with my any other foundation that is always either too pink or/and too light. (I normally mix this with my Body Shop Matte Clay Skin Clarifying Foundation or my Catrice HD Liquid Foundation; both are too light, too pink and quite matte)

Wear eye pencil every day, was using Rommel black waterproof one, which is pretty good, hear about the milani stay put pencil so thought I would try it, rubbish, definitely not waterproof, rubs off really easy, do not know who's writing the post stays put and does not move, I have try many over the years.

I found this at Walmart for $14.99. I don't need another eye palette, but this looked so good and the discount was tempting. I am SO glad I got it. It completely blew me away. The colors are so pigmented I only had to use a very small amount. Shadows are buttery and blend beautifully. The shimmers are not disco shimmer. The packaging is gorgeous (I don't mind that it has no applicator as I prefer to use my own brushes). I just can't say enough good things about it. Just comes to prove once again that drugstore makeup can be - and sometimes is - as good or better than designer brand.
