Milani 2 in 1 Foundation 07 Sand Demo/Review

Milani 2 in 1 Conceal + Perfect Foundation is claimed to be a foundation and concealer. It retails for around $10 depending on where you get it. It's currently available in some stores and online at Amazon and Milani Cosmetics website. As for Canada, it's also available on Amazon for $15 CAD.
Here's my demo and review of Milani 2 in 1 Conceal + Perfect Foundation in 07 Sand with 7-hour wear test: 
It comes with a pump, so that's always a plus and it contains 1 oz of product.

Product Claims:
  • Medium to Full Coverage
  • Lightweight
  • Oil-Free
  • Longwearing
  • Water-Resistant and Sweat-proof 

There are 15 shades to choose from. Click here for my shade reference blog post, where I list the MAC conversion shades and videos by other YouTubers for almost all shades. 
  1. 00 Light Natural (NEW shade)
  2. 01 Creamy Vanilla
  3. 02 Natural
  4. 03 Light Beige 
  5. 04 Medium Beige 
  6. 05 Warm Beige 
  7. 06 Sand Beige 
  8. 07 Sand 
  9. 08 Light Tan 
  10. 09 Tan 
  11. 10 Golden Tan
  12. 11 Amber 
  13. 12 Spiced Almond 
  14. 13 Chestnut
  15. 14 Golden Toffee 
I got the shade 07 Sand  and I think it's a good match but I've seen other YouTubers with my skin tone using shade Sand Beige 06, so not sure if that would be a better match for me. I don't own any MAC foundation but I should be around NC40-NC42 in MAC. Click here for full list of foundations that I wear (I do update blog regularly).
  • Finish: Demi-Matte
  • Coverage: Medium buildable 
  • Application: It's very easy to apply! The brush gives a better coverage, so what I like to do is apply first with a brush and then blend it out with a beautyblender.
  • Wear time: I tested it out for about 7 hours and it looked good throughout the day. It did slightly fade away by end of night. Since I have combination skin (oily t-zone), I did notice my skin looked oily by the end of the day but it's not as bad as I thought. However, if you have oily skin then you do need to set it and might need to touch up depending on how oily your skin is. 

  • Natural
  • Easy to blend
  • Lightweight 
  • Photographs well
  • Doesn't cling on dry patches
    • Scent 
    Overall, I think it's a good everyday foundation. It gives a natural, flawless finish. It's very easy to apply and doesn't cling on dry patches. I have combination skin with oily t-zone and this foundation doesn't make me look too oily throughout the day. However, it depends on how oily your skin is. It's great for someone with dry/normal skin and if you have oily or combination skin like I do, then I would recommend setting it with powder and you may need to blot. The only thing I dislike about this foundation is the scent. It really bothers me. It lingers for about an hour after I apply it but then I can't smell it after then.

    1. This post seems really helpful for me! Recently I did my make up lesson by Lina Cameron, she trains best make-up lesson by Lina Cameron . But, I am new in this makeup line. I am willing to purchase this foundation. Can you suggest me which shade will be best for NC30 ?
