Great for hiding blemishes, but not so great for the undereye area....
I love this concealer to conceal some small marks and blemishes on my face. It is creamy and blends well, which can be tricky to find a good drugstore product with those qualities it seems like! :) I have found that it is not the best for the undereye area....:p. I am still on the lookout for a good drugstore concealer for the undereye area. :). Very well priced, and good coverage! :)
In place of foundation...
I use this over an earthy peach color corrector on my archnemesis dark circles. It is not as creamy as your typical cream concealer, with a drier consistency (oil free) that is perfect for my OILY skin. Perfect, in fact, that it does not break me out if I accidentally sleep in it. So I wouldn't recommend this for beauties with dry skin.
It is rather thick and HIGHLY pigmented, similar to Dermablend concealer. The packaging could be improved, as the first one I got the lid seperated in two pieces. I did by a second one for a back up. I also put some in a three gram jar to take with me in my purse, but it lasts all day after I powder so I've never needed a touch up. Yeah, it's waterproof!
The color I have, Deep Tan, literally disappears into my skin, so well that I don't have to waste extra time trying to blend out the edges. I use a small concealer brush, and pat blend in to perfection. So my search for the perfect concealer match has (for now) ended. I also own Tan and Honey, which I use for subtle highlighting.
Deep Tan might be a great color choice for you also, if you are a golden brown like me, which MAC would refer to as NC42.
Best Kept Secret
LOVE LOVE LOVE! I use this product daily and a friend gifted me with, warm beige. When I want a super light highlight for my browbone that's what I use. And I was so happy about it that I went and bought the stick in Warm Cocoa.
Pros: affordable, long lasting, great for darker skin tones Cons: Hard to manipulate, transfers if not set properly, can look cakey.
I am a Milani die hard fan. Love the products from day 1. It's affordable and it works. I love working with this. You get great coverage and you don't even have to use a lot of it. My clients love it too. Especially those that aren't used to putting on makeup. All of them said that it's not heavy or cake-y.
Great that it's affordable... I love the packaging and the color blends pretty well. Though I'm not a big fan. The consistency of this wasn't as creamy as I want (it felt more dry than all my other concealers), but it does blend well. Another thing that I don't like about this is that it kinda felt sticky once applied. Oh and it doesn't really stay put for a long time.
Its Cheap and Works like High End product
I would love if they had more variety of colors. The color i have feels a little bit to yellow on me. I use it almost every day and i have tried the MAC concealer and i prefer the milani one for me this one works wonders. I loved it (i want to have a back up) When i tried it on my mom she fell in love, had to buy another one for her.
I love this stuff!
I am in love with this concealer. It hides my imperfections like a dream. I find that the best application for me is using my ring finger with the tap/dab motion. It blends in with my skintone beautifully. I've gotten many compliments on how great my skin looks everytime that I've used only this product and a translucent powder in place of foundation. The only reason I gave this 4 1/2 stars is because since using it almost every day, it feels as though it has somewhat dried out on me and feels very thick. However, upon dabbing my finger in the product, it helps to warm it up a bit, making the product not as thick as it looks. I might have to try and let it sit in some hot water, hopefully that will bring some life back into it but other than that, I absolutely love this concealer. Milani is one of my favorite drugstore brands-great quality at an affordable price.
