Eye Primer -MILANI -Eyeshadow Primer

This primer beats my Too faced primer, not because of performance, because they both do the same thing, but because the product doesn't separate after a month of use and also cuz even off of Amazon Canada, this is half the price! Meanwhile, my eyeshadow looks perfectly in place even after a long 14 hour day (happy-hour included!). And also, the little squeeze tube doesn't dispense too much product, and that's a bonus because I only need a dot for each of my oily lids. I will repurchase this until I'm old and my eyelids look like a Google Earth satellite view.

A nice eyeshadow primer, very affordable. It has a soft texture when applied but dries quite fast. You only need a tiny amount. I find that this doesn't feel quite as "dry" as the Wet n wild Photofocus one (I would recommend that one for v oily lids). This lasts quite well, for at least 8+ hours.

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

foto

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.

Primer/ Corrector -MILANI -Make It Dewy Setting Spray

Love the way this makes my makeup look, and how it feels on the skin but there's something off with the formula with how it sprays. Had issues with iffy spraying from the nozzle and assumed I just got a dud bottle or something so I thought to just pop the lid and pour it into my travel spray bottle (one with an amazing fine mist btw) and....... same issue. Lol. I paid 17 dollars for this? Like the nyx spray is only 12 and it actually works as it should. I love the effect the make it dewy gave but I literally have to use so much product to get an "even" mist.. Milani do better.

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

foto

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)

Palettes -MILANI -SOFT & SULTRY EYESHADOW PALETTE

on 8/10/2018 6:12:00 PM

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.

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

This works great with my skin. I love the little pump top and you can easily control how much you get by depressing a little or a lot. This gives me great medium-fuller coverage without looking heavy or caked on. This looks like my skin when I applied this with a silicone applicator. I applied first smoothing it on in circles to spread it out and then patting it into the skin for a flawless finish. I used the shade 00 Light Natural which is a perfect match. That is so rare and I almost always have to mix two together to get the right color that isn't too yellow, too pink, or too pale. I've worn this several times already over the past few weeks and I've been happy with the staying power and look. I do get a little breakdown around my nose and chin by the end of the day, but my work shifts are over 12 hours long so by the time I finish, my makeup has already been on for a good 13 hours. That is the same wear I get with any of my favorite foundations. This applies smoothly and looks like my skin when I apply a thin layer. I have applied this different ways to see how it performs with a silicone applicator, a beauty blender sponge, a foundation brush, fingertips, and a combo of those and it went on well with all applications over a primer. This does not build up well though and it looked cakey when I added a second layer, so just go with what it gives you the first time. I always use moisturizer and a makeup primer beneath my foundations. It does cover my undereye shadows and I have not had to use a separate concealer, but it didn't give me the coverage or even out the browline like concealer can either so this did not eliminate that step so I still have to use concealer with this. It does have good coverage. I don't have dark circles though so concealer is more for a brightening effect than a concealing effect when I use it. I apply my makeup with the lightest hand possible and build up color and coverage in layers so this product works well for me, I like how it looks on me, I like the dispenser, I like the application, and the long wear. I will say that I do work indoors in temperature controlled settings so my makeup is not having to take the summer heat and humidity. I'm satisfied with this and I would buy it again.

Primer/ Corrector -MILANI -Make It Last Setting Spray Prime + Correct + Set

Floral scent. Average spray, not fine but not too wet either. Maybe dry skin might like it but fails to even get even 8 hours of the 16 hour wear claim on my combo oily skin. Takes away the powdery look but does not control oil breakthrough, skin gets oilier looking and makeup does not last longer. Flower Beauty Seal the Deal Matte Finish Spray works better and also has a finer mist (just have to shake the bottle well first to prevent white spots).


Eye Primer -MILANI -Eyeshadow Primer

i used to use the mineral eye primer from elf and thought it did pretty well, but this keeps oil on my eyes at bay for even longer than the elf primer does on me. i basically never get creases in my eyeshadow when i use this primer, and my lids can get quite oily. also, i think this definitely needs to be set. on the rare occasions i feel adventurous and go straight in with color, shadows seem to apply more patchily.

this doesn't have any color to it, but i think it would be nice if it did. it does leave a slight tint but it should be able to work on virtually all skin tones as the color is incredibly sheer. i see what milani was doing there lol, and its definitely better than it being a color that flat-out doesn't work for me at all. but for someone with more obvious veins on their lids that they like to conceal before applying shadows, this will probably not be the best choice.

i really like this eye primer, and will definitely repurchase when i run out - if i ever do!

Lipstick -MILANI -color statement~#42 Rose Femme

on 8/2/2018 2:09:00 AM

foto

this is a really nice color, but very deep on me. i thought it would be lighter. it looks like a brownish plum. the shade is flattering, just not what i'd hoped it would be.

the color wears well over liner, and comes off quickly without. feels comfortable while it's on and doesn't dry out my lips at all. i really like the milani lipsticks i've tried - the packaging is really nice too. i feel like the shiny gold shows wear and tear pretty easily, but the lipsticks overall are pretty durable and i've never had a lid pop off or crack in a purse. imho these look really elegant and expensive. im a big fan of milani's packaging in general.

i look forward to trying other shades once i run out of what i have. i would probably repurchase this if it were lighter, or if i could find a good lighter shade to mix it with.

*more detailed info on my undertones listed on my profile.

Eye Primer -MILANI -Eyeshadow Primer

on 8/1/2018 6:11:00 PM

Yes, the product states "eye shadow primer" and NOT a primer for pencil eyeliners so I should have known, lol, that I would have sketchy problems applying pencil/gel eyeliners after using this: but, happy I did not throw those eyeliners out, but looked at what I used beneath them as to what was the problem as my eyeliners just would NOT go on! That said, my eye shadows were very happy with the primer and were much more intense and true in color. But, that's only one thing.....I am still hoping for a primer that blanks out all the redness and veins that I had been using a concealer for and works as well with powdered eye shadow as it could with pencil/gel eyeliners. This one just isn't it. I need to invent it! LOL.

REVISING my review. Both the Milani and Elf are comparable, IMHO. The key for me is to apply the primer, wait, then use a quality white eye shadow (to get a blank slate and obliterate red, veins, etc, ) and then apply the color shadow you want. I dislike all these steps, yes, am lazy but NO concealer alone worked as well for me as this three step application. (Also, some eyeliners work better than others with a primer--the easiest is liquid, but hard for seniors to apply.) Good luck and thanks for all posts.

I love this blush!! To be honest I like it better than NARS Orgasm. I had the NARS blush first but since I’ve bought Milani’s it’s the one blush I’ve been using every single day. It’s peachy with a little shimmer... a little goes a long way. I can’t rave about it enough ❤️

Eyeliner -MILANI -Stay Put Waterproof Eyeliner

SO GOOD! I really wasn`t expecting this to be that good! I love blue eyeliner, so I thought I`d order the blue one from Beautybay.com We don`t have Milani where I live, and I am pretty picky about my blue liners, but this blew my mind: it`s really pigmented, easy to apply, I smudged it with a liner brush and it was almost like working with a gel liner, it blended that easily with the brush and my wings looked sharp and neat. The wear time is also amazing: walked 10 km in 39C humid weather and while I was sweating, this liner stayed put and looked as fresh as when I applied it. This is even better than UD pencils! I love me a little UD liner, too, especially because I can get a grungy, smudgy smokey eye look with them (love Sabbath, love Perversion), but I can love me a little Milani, too. If Milani made more colors, I would definitely buy more.
