This powder is great if you want a more natural look. It also works well as a finishing powder because it leaves your skin looking evenly toned and natural. If you want more coverage then this wouldn't work well for you. The little compact it comes in is great because you can easily put it in your purse. I highly recommend this product.
Loved this a friend gave it to me cuz she had two n I thought the color wouldn't suit me but it did and when I wear it for dance shows all I have to do is blot and put some translucent powder on
Very unhappy with this. I bought it because I was looking for a better color-match than I had with my Maybelline Dream Matte powder. I saw Fresco and it seemed perfect. It does look really good when first applied, but as the day goes on, it oxidizes like crazy! I don't know that I have "acidic" skin as another reviewer claims, but something is going wrong. My whole face turns a yucky reddish orangeish hue. It's also kind of hard - I had to really dig my brush into it to get any product. Into the garbage it goes...
For reference, considering that I have a very acidic skin, NC37 on MAC and I have this in Fresco. I loved how this melt and blends with my foundations since I'm using this as a finishing powder, but for some reason, at the end of the day, this turns reddish orange on me. First I thought it was my foundation, I gave it another try with another foundation but it still turned out the same. Then I switched primers, its still the same. I tried wearing it alone, I was still red orange at the end of the day.
Probably this could work for normal skin, but this oxidizes badly with acidic skin. But I wouldn't mind buying the lightest shade and see how it would turn out since its dirt cheap.
But on the brighter side, this does not cake up, stays all day and controls oily skin.
I tried this got the first time today. It's not heavy enough to be called a true powder foundation and I'm very fair so it's a bit yellow for me. I will try to continue to use it but only as a touch up for my regular mineral makeup which is the body shop extra virgin minerals loose ones. And I also somedays wear mineral hygenics.
This gave my skin a matte finish and a radiant complexetion . So beautiful and light yellow touch which complement my lightly tanned skin perfectly
After reading comments and reviews on this product, I had to try it. Local grocery store had all Milani products on sale. So this is one of the items I grabbed. Was unsure of the color and florescent lighting in store, but, I grabbed Fresco, (Im like a MAC NC30), and it applied and blended effortlessly. I was really impressed with color and how it made my complexion look and feel, and I loved it. I applied with a Kabuki brush and blended away and I really liked the results. Not cakey or dry looking, just nice coverage and results. Loved it !!!!
I just love, love this powder foundation!! It is a very fine product! I am NC42 in Mac and I purchased natural tan in the Even Tone. It is even a better powder than the Mac because it is more natural and not heavy like the Studio Fix but, the finish is flawless. I look like I have perfect skin after using this. Great for my oily skin too! Stays on great and my face looks fresh and clean! I use the flat top foundation brush from ELF to put it on and that's it! For the price too, I feel like I should go stock up on the powder. I've used the Multitasker and love it also in light tan. I prefer the Even Tone for more coverage and color match plus a more flawless finish! I rarely write reviews but for this product I really wanted to share this info with everyone. If you are a Mac user, give these powders a try, you will not be disappointed! :)
I am an NC30 (on the darker side) and I use this in the second color, "Fresco". Milani hits it out of the ballpark once again! Milani is one of my favorite brands, and I have a LOT of make up. There's a good reason behind the fact that they are on my top list of make up brands - and it's because of their superior quality. To be quite honest with you, I feel like their powders/powder foundations blow MAC, Clinique, etc out of the water. My OLD Holy Grail powder was also from Milani, it is Milani's Multitasking Powder. I really loved that, and still do - but I have to say I like this so much more! (and i didn't even know it was possible to love a powder more then I loved that one) This makes my foundation look FLAWLESS, and not only do i look airbrushed - I look NATURAL. It blends seamlessly into my skin, it's very thin but still has great coverage and even if you use a lot it never looks too powdery, or even remotely powdery. It really does diffuse light and my imperfections are blurred! it lasts all day, and it really is the best powder I have used to date. It feels like velvet, silky smooth, heaven on my face! This was a whopping 7$, I purchased it Wal Mart. I also love the sleek and pretty gold packaging, it's very sturdy. Thank you Milani.
I bought this product because I actually saw it on sale for about $8.50 at my local drug store. I was currently using just the Milani Bronzer & was going to grab the same thing again. My skin is naturally oily so I have to use products that don't have oil in them. I wash my face with Aveeno Naturals Daily Replenshing scrub & then moisturize with the the Aveeno Naturals Daily Replenishing moisturizer because both keep me from getting oily. It would only make sense to also use an oil free foundation.
I bought the Even-touch powder foundation in Caramel & applied it with a kabuki brush & it went on very smooth & even. I didn't have to do much blending either. In the winter time, I'm able to get away with liquid foundation but I may have to see how this one works as well.
I'm not happy with the packaging though. The compact is really pretty with the gold and all but the clasp on the front was the hardest to open. I eventually broke the front off on accident and that made it work better, Go figure. I think maybe I had a faulty compact or something. I will definitely be buying this one again! The color matches my tone perfectly!
