Most Helpful Positive Review Surprisingly good
I had to switch foundations after realizing my Kat Von D foundation was actually EATING my skin, making my breakouts a lot worse, and causing really deep cystic pimples/staph infections (I'd get pimples, pop them PROPERLY then after applying foundation to cover them they'd turn into these giant flat scabby patches that would take over a month to heal and would scar a lot) I've got very dry skin with a slightly oily t-zone and the KVD foundation would "crack", settle into my pores, and cling horribly to my dry patches, so obviously I needed to switch foundations but couldn't afford to shell out $40+ for another high end foundation, so after reading a lot of reviews I gave this one a shot, and am seriously impressed. I'll give you my whole routine since some people seem to be having issues with it, I start off with NYX's honey dew me up primer (which is also GREAT as a night serum and has seriously helped my skin) and a little spritz of NYX's matte setting spray on my t-zone to help control oil, then buff a pump and a half into my face and neck with it cosmetic's airbrush foundation brush (it works nicely with a beauty blender too, but goes on sheerer this way), set it using the KVD powder foundation, generously spray with the NYX matte setting spray, then gently pat my whole face with a damp beauty blender (this step isn't necessary, but it helps merge the powder and cream together to keep it from looking cakes and gives me a really pretty flawless finish) I did my makeup at 9 am, and it's 7:30 now and my foundation still looks flawless, it covers blemishes and discoloration completely without needing any concealer, it's doesn't cling to my dry patches at all, doesn't settle into my pores, and holds up beautifully. It's doesn't crack or cake up like my KVD foundation would, and stays put if you have to blot it. My only complaints would be the VERY limited shade range, and it does oxidize a little so if you're between shades go with the lighter one.
Most Helpful Critical Review Makes Pores Look Awful!
I really wanted to like this foundation, and I did upon the initial application. It went on smoothly, was easy to blend, and seemed to cover a decent amount. However, after less than an hour of wear, I noticed the foundation oxidized very badly and looked orange on my very fair skin (and I bought the lightest shade they make, 00A Porcelain). Also, the foundation had settled into my pores and made them look awful! I don't consider myself to be someone with very bad or noticeable pores at all, and I use a skincare regimen daily, but this foundation made it look like I was covered in blackheads! And that was with using the pore-minimizing Porefessional primer by Smashbox. Additionally, after less than an hour of wear, the foundation had worn off along my jaw/lower cheekbone and my redness was peeking through badly. To sum up, I liked how this foundation looked when I first applied it, but it just got worse and worse the longer I wore it (which was less than an hour!).
Reviewed by 1505 customers Great coverage, strong scent
Lazy Makeup Girl from Tucson, AZ
I love the coverage and buildability of this product. I love how I could use this product as regular foundation and then add another layer as concealer. The only issue I had with this product was the smell, it was strong and lingered for hours after applying. It had a weird chemical scent that I was not a fan of. Other than the scent, it was a good product and it was long lasting for a drugstore foundation/concealer product.
Not I expected!
Gio from Florida
Did not like it, my skin is oily and the makeup does not last for 2 hours. I apply base an setting spray and did not stay all day , as it claims. I will retune it
Great for the price
Ashley from Utah
I was looking for something more full coverage compared to my every day foundation (L'Oréal proglow) this worked great. The formula isn't the best for my dry skin but after a few tries I finally got it to work with the right primer.
Awesome foundation...and I have oily skin!
Krystle from Collinsville,MS
I was shocked when I read some of the reviews on how this foundation doesn't work for oily skin. I have. Very oily skin and I have to say this is One of my favorite foundations! I am a foundation snob! I have so many and I want to try them all. This gives amazing coverage and last all day while I'm at work. I mix 2 of the shades to get my perfect color which is creamy nude and light beige. Milano is one of my favorite brands! I love there charcoal setting spray which I use with this makeup along with there setting powder. I get so manny compliments on my makeup when I where this. Also love there concealer it's works amazing. LOVE! LOVE!LOVE!

D from New Jersey
The product feels so lightweight yet covers all my blemishes more than other foundations I've tried. It's definitely worth the price. I've spent more on products that don't compare to this. I have oily skin and it does not clog my pores resulting in breakouts the next day!
I love the foundation I just wish it would stay better
Rena from Idaho
This foundation feels and looks great. I matches my skin very well. My only problem with it is that is wears off very quickly even with setting spray. I use it but I hope they improve durability and longevity!
Janie from Little Rock
Love it, the coverage was smooth. It lasted for hours.
Not for oily skin ‼️‼️READ THIS BEFORE BUYING
Giselle from Durham
don't purchase this if you have oily skin TRUST ME or combination skin . It's alright just not for me . I have an oily tzone area and I wanted to try this since I ran out of my every day foundation and wanted to give this a try since its cheaper ,this isnt buildable it can get cakey and I tried wearing this for a day to see how it wears and not even half the day it my foundation was separating on my nose !! it was sooo embarrassing I've never had a problem with a foundation doing this I thought maybe something I did wrong so I tried it again the next day , it did the same thing .would not recommend save your money invest in a better foundation like juvias place is full coverage and has been my go to since day one ! And is oily skin friendly . If you do buy this milani foundation keep in mind it oxides too.
Bibi from LA
Best coverage ever but it separates quick no matter how much you set it . I'll stick w my double wear
Erikax from CA
Gives light-medium coverage as foundation (although it broke me out chin area) but definitely not good as a concealer.
Mixed feelings about it
Ester the dog from Southern pines, NC
The shade match is incredible. However, it does oxidize after some hours of wear. I love the finish when I first put it on. Though, after sometime it seemed to look a little dry. I think it has a lot to do with the setting spray that I use.
A must have
Matty from Texas
Great foundation, I'm on my 5-6 bottle. Great price amazing product!
K from NC
Great foundation, just don't use if you have dry skin.
This broke me out
Liv from Chicago
This was the only new thing I introduced onto my face and I noticed my skin broke out in places I usually don't break out in. Also, the finish looks really nice at first, but after 2-3 hours, it looks cakey/cracked like it settles into fine lines. It makes me look older than I actually am.
Not for oily skin
Kay Kay from Conroe TX
This concealer looks great putting on then after about 30 minutes it looks extremely oily even if you put powder on I tried to different primers/setters it would still transfer to everything and it would look terrible and it also does not conceal your breakouts or whatever you're trying to conceal it makes it more noticeable
Jakia from PA
This foundation is amazing it goes on really nicely and honestly to me seems to be a bit water resistant it's long lasting and and has great coverage. Best I've use this far.
I will never buy this again
Vanessa from United States
I was excited to try this because its cheap and full coverage. Within 5 minutes of having it on, my whole face got dry and started peeling. Even after I washed my face it was so dry you could see the skin hanging off. I had to put moisturizer on my face 8 times for it to be somewhat normal afterwards. I do not have sensitive skin so I don't understand why it happened. After my face was back to normal within a few hours I put my normal foundation on and it was fine so it was clearly the Milani that did it. Just beware!
Great for Oily skin
Milani786 from Miami, fl
This is really great foundation, full coverage , doesn't look greasy or cakey. Very affordable
My perfect shade! A good drugstore option.
HH from Portland, Maine
I have fair/light neutral skin tone and the 'nude' shade matched perfectly. Love this drugstore cruelty free option! I applied it with a wet beauty sponge and it made me look natural and dewy. Will definitely repurchase and very much recommend!
Erika from Irvine
Like the texture, and coverage. Goes on nice and smooth
D from PA
Stop wasting your money on high end beauty products!!! This stuff is affordable and works amazing. The coverage of this product is insane!
Great affordable foundation
CedeLeigh from Tennessee
Great coverage! Best affordable foundation that I've tried. I've tried 2 different shades (summer/winter) and they never turn any weird colors and match my skin tone perfectly.
Made me breakout ):
Kelsiekels from California
So when I first out this on...I loved it. It was beautiful and actually light enough for my translucent skin. The first thing I noticed was that it didn't wear well or last long. I gave it a fair test and tried it on the weekend on a day that I wouldn't be wearing a mask. Within 3-4 hours, it started to separate and completely disappear on my nose and all around it. Within another hour I was a total greasy mess and the foundation was sliding all over my face. The next day I broke out and continued to break out for a few more days. I wanted to love it. The shade was so nice. It may work for someone with dry skin and who isn't acne prone.
dani from md
its good until you go out in the cold and then it starts cracking and looking cakey
