YouTube Made Me Buy It Drugstore Edition: Milani Conceal and Perfect Foundation


We’ve all been there. Our favorite YouTuber raves about a product, and the next thing you know, we’re at the cash register buying it up. One example of this occurrence for me is the Milani Conceal + Perfect  2-in-1 Foundation. Keep reading to find out if I loved it or hated it.

The Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer comes in nineteen shades, which isn’t a bad shade range for a drugstore foundation line. Shade 14, Golden Toffee (shown above), is the deepest shade according to the Milani website. We won’t even get into how there should be at least five more deep shades. AT LEAST. I wear shade 13, Chestnut, for reference.

This is advertised as a medium coverage foundation, but it gives you the full coverage feel when applied and can be built up to full coverage. That information should have immediately let me know how I would feel about this product, as I’m not typically a full coverage girl. But, thanks to The Tube, I was determined to give a try because all of the Influencers I respect swore by it. For me personally, this foundation just feels like I have a weighted mask on my face. It made my face literally feel heavy. You could look at me and tell that I had on foundation, which isn’t typically my preference. I tried using less product and mixing it in with my moisturizer, but still found that I didn’t like the way it felt and looked on my skin. The foundation made me look weird, for lack of a better term. I looked like a plastic doll, and that’s definitely not the vibe I’m into.

If you hadn’t guessed by now, I’m not into this foundation at all. It just doesn’t feel right on my skin. If it’s your holy grail, I’d love to know how you make it work for you. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone, but especially those of you that are into a more natural looking foundation like I am. YouTube owes me $10 lol.
