Review of Milani Minerals Compact Makeup by Annabells117
Such a surprise! I got this on sale at CVS & now Milani Minerals Compact is 1 of my favorite face products!
The shade 102 Nude Buff matches me perfectly. I'm NC20, warm/ yellow skin, blonde hair & blue eyes. I have a hard time finding drugstore powders that are light & yellow enough. Nothing looks worse than a pink powdery face that doesn't match your body! Maybelline age rewind is close in color but I dislike the consistency. High end I use Clinique powder in 116 Gold. I'd actually say the Milani is a better color match for me.
I use Milani Minerals as a setting powder over MUFE foundation. I've sometimes used it as a powder foundation over a bb cream to provide more coverage. It looks lovely and doesn't cake up. It seems to wear well and have good lasting power, but I usually powder a few times throughout the day anyway. I wouldn't want a powder product to make my face dry & matte for hours at a time. This has a natural finish.
1 BIG PLUS for me with Milani Minerals is that it feels nice on my skin. I can't feel it. It doesn't make my face feel dry or tight or itch. I like Bare Minerals & other powders, but when I apply them my face itches horribly. The itch goes away after awhile, but I can usually still feel those products on my face if I've applied enough for full coverage.
Milani did a great job on this product. Highly recommend!!
NOTE: I hope the Milani brand starts getting more recognition and becomes more widely available. I'd like to see it in Target & Walmart. You know we are all over-paying at Walgreens & CVS! Recently I saw a small Milani section in 1 Target in NYC/ NJ region. It leads me to believe Target is testing the market. So ladies if we buy Milani & our Target has it, I suggest we get it there. If all Targets start carrying Milani, it'll be more widely available and affordable.
