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!).

My go to foundation, covers all my redness and acne scars!! Love it
I was surprised
Adalida from Utah
Didn't expect much of this foundation. I usually wear Clinique. But it provides good coverage without looking dry or settling into my lines (I'm 56). I may have chosen a color too dark for my fair skin. But I find that if I prime my skin with some moisturizer or essential oil, apply less makeup, it's not too dark.
Amazing coverage but it breaks me out :(
Mady from Minnesota
This foundation covers my acne super well and looks pretty flawless, but unfortunately I only use it for special occasions bc it breaks me out if I wear it everyday. I have very oily/acne prone skin, so if your skin isn't as finicky as mine & you're looking for a good full coverage foundation, I would definitely give it a shot!

No oil control and runny
Brenda from Chicago, IL
I have read reviews that say great things about this product. I decided to give it a try but it turned out to be the worst foundation I have ever tried. I have oily skin that is controlled with maybelline or Estee Lauder foundation. The Milani foundation delivered no oil control and easy came off with wearing face masks.
Victoria from Utah
It's so cheap and yet my skin loves it! It looks so so good and it lasts all day. I was amazed when I put it on. Love it.
Worth the money
NatashaLynn from Cato
Absolutely LOVE this foundation!
Full coverage, stay well with UD setting spray! Color matches superb So worth a buy!
Really bad for oily skins!
malymoris from Sandusky, Ohio
I don't get why it gets too many compliments but it's literally the worst for my skin type. It made my skin sooooo oily and shiny. I hated so much! Not for oily skins for sure!
nice color not perfect, but good
Yaya from San Diego
medium coverage for work
IslandBabe from Nashville
The Make up is a good quality it cover blemishes or little abs scars. You don't have to use much abs it's very fast to put on.
I would buy this again.

Very good foundation!!
I think I found my go to foundation
Kiki angel from Moreno Valley ca
I've been struggling to find the perfect foundation that stays in my skin and doesn't leave it oily and well I used this foundation and my make up looked good all night
Blends well but don't get it wet!
Senna from Lapeer, MI
I like how easy this blends on with a brush. I use an oil-base primer and this concealer builds right on top. Doesn't like water so I recommend covering with Milani foundation and a setting spray or powder. Covered my acne & dark circles under my eyes. Faded my many freckles but didn't cover completely.
Love love love this foundation!!!
Courtney from North Carolina
I love this foundation. This is my 3rd or 4th bottle. It's great coverage and stays all day long, even while wearing a mask. I do use a setting spray with it. I cannot recommend this enough. It's great! I have normal to dry skin. But I could see it working with any skin type. I've compared it to all my old go to foundations and it's definitely the best. My friend even says it gives her double wear a run for its money. It's a great product
CC from Benton Arkansas
It looked good on my skin but it had an awful smell. I immediately removed it off of my face. I shook the bottle up because I thought maybe the liquid done settled so I reapplied it and it was still awful. I regret wasting my money on this
Not really great from Pflugerville
I have brown skin and after a few hours you look ORANGE!
MgLo from TN
This foundation is amazing! Definitely full coverage! Leaves my skin looking smooth and glowing ❤️
I love this foundation
Miss Love from NYC
I've been on the hunt for a great foundation. I've usually settled for drug store funds and this one is in drugstores but I looked at reviews and decided to get from ulta. I am impressed and highly satisfied with this. I love the way I look . I use a primer from dr Brandt and then dab little dots of this under my eyes and eyelid to conceal and use a blender sponge. I am highly satisfied with the full coverage of this that doubles as a concealer. I dot the rest of my face and use sponge . Leaves my face beautiful
Two thumbs up!
Manders from Kankakee, IL
You get a full coverage effect without it looking too heavy! Love it!
Yes, at LAST!!!
Lovelydust from Mableton, GA
I use this as my everyday foundation. It matches my skin perfectly, better than ANY foundation I have ever used. I am so happy I found it. It blends easily, leaving me with a smooth, glowing finish. I'm really loving the Milano brand right now. I hope they make a skin care line so my beauty life can be complete. This foundation is a must have.
Love love love!
Literallyhayez from El Cajon
I don't mean to sound like an exaggerated annoying person. But this foundation works sooo well for me. And I have very oily skin. It's got very good coverage and blends so smoothly. Putting too much on at one time though makes it look caked in the end. So if you need to go lightly then add layers. Blends in with skin sooo good. I love it.
🐈 from Heck
I usually love everything from Milani, esp the lip sticks, but this isn't it sis. It settles into my skin and just doesn't really look good. The foundation settled into my pores and made it look terrible.
Will never buy again
Kay from Massachusetts
If you have any acne, scars, clogged pores, or textured skin this foundation is not for you. This enhanced every flaw I had on my skin that I didn't even know I had. Would not say this is a full coverage and is cakey. Also makes your face feel disgusting and broke out from it. Used it twice to give it a second chance and just disappointed me again.
Made my pores look HORRIBLE
Ash from Midland, TX
I really liked how it applied. However after a couple of hours it changed oxidized and changed color quite dramatically and also made my pores stand out so much. My pores aren't even that bad but this foundation makes it look like I have holes all over my face and I don't like the way it looks. Disappointing.
Not that impressed
Mack from Kentucky
The formula doesn't last and leaves my skin greasy. I wouldn't consider it full coverage, so I don't have much use for it as a concealer. Decent for a "drug store" price but doesn't compare to high end foundations.
