My skin is pretty normal to sometimes combo depending on the weather, but it's never fully dry or oily. Also, while I don't have full on acne I do get pimples periodically.
PROs: The packaging is so convenient, I love that there's a pump which makes life alot more easier. The coverage is one of the highest I've seen in foundations, it really is a 2 in 1.
That's about where the good ends....
The foundation is incredibly thick (which I personally don't prefer) and it feels quite heavy on the face. When I initially blend it out the thick consistency sits on the very top of my skin so it feels like my skin can't breathe. After a while it settles in and looks more natural (which was actually quite nice) however it quickly settles into ever fine line and crease (eyes, mouth...even the bridge of my nose....now foundations do tend to crease in my laugh lines but never under my eyes and nose)
After 4 hours or so I notice my face looks very oily (way more than my skin ever is) all over my face (not just the T-zone). Throughout the day I honestly feel quite gross wearing this foundation too, due to its heavy texture.
I will say that I have not tried this foundation by setting it so maybe that may help control the oil and perhaps even the creasing....however unless you don't mind the heavy feeling I highly don't recommend this product.
Pros: I like that it comes in a pump, it is so much easier to apply. The fragrance is nice, but that is something to consider if you are sensitive to smells. The coverage is medium to full, and the consistency is a little thick if you like that in a foundation.
Cons: Milani's shade range is a little too yellow for my skin tone (I have neutral undertones), so I have to mix this foundation if I ever want to wear it. When I wore this foundation alone, it settled into my pores and emphasized my texture. My face also became oily after 4+ hours, so it is not as long lasting as I need my foundations to be. Lastly, since it is a thick foundation, it can look cakey if you apply too much.
I will still continue to wear this foundation if I am running a few errands or mixing it in with other foundations that I like (Revlon Colorstay or Loreal Infallible Pro-Matte), but I won't be repurchasing.
The packaging itself is very nice - it comes with a pump which is a huge plus in my book. The formula is THICK, and it does dry down quickly which can make it difficult to apply. Even when applied with a damp beauty sponge, the thickness of the formula can tend to make skin look cakey if you aren't careful.
This foundation is definitely full coverage, and has a matte finish. It did emphasize the texture of my skin, which I'm not a fan of. After being set with powder and setting spray, this foundation stayed matte for about 5 hours before I had to re-powder, so it didn't last as long as I would like it to.
Because of the way it showcased the texture of my skin, this stuff is unfortunately a pass for me. It showed promise, but I think the formula is just too thick for someone with any skin imperfections.
