Most Helpful Positive Review Screen Queen Foundation
I received this product as a sample to review.
After using it, I like the product, however I don't think I will use it again.
I love that it has an SPF in the formula - this is important to me because I have light skin and live in the coastal South East where the sun is intense.
The formula is very creamy and light, which is important because of the heat and humidity down here. If a foundation feels to heavy, it's likely to just melt off.
It is well pigmented and matches my skin tone almost spot on with a light feeling even though it is a pretty full coverage foundation.
I have super sensitive skin and am prone to a bit of redness and acne and this didn't cause any break outs in an aspect of allergies or acne, so that was nice.
I wouldn't continue to use this product, however, because my skin is combination of oily and dry and this is just sat a bit too oily for me.
Using it in combination with powder helped it a lot, but since it is "winter" here in the south that is Ok as it isn't sweltering outside yet.
It's a great product, just not for me.
Most Helpful Critical Review It's great for a fresh faced teen but not an older Queen
The Screen Queen Foundation is a light coverage foundation. It says it's buildable but trying to add more makes the foundation smudge on your face and leave unflattering marks. I'd say this is a perfect foundation for a fresh faced teen that is just starting to use makeup. Someone with no fine lines or wrinkles on their face, no blemishes to hide. For me, the shade was a perfect match with my skin tone, which is a great plus. Unfortunately after wearing it for an hour or so, it starts to settle into the fine lines between my brows and ends up accentuating them and not covering them. It also settles into the pores on my nose and starts to look like spots which is very embarrassing. It is also not a long lasting foundation. It wears off my face or at least wears down long before I even leave work. Compared to other foundations I've used, this just doesn't work for me and my needs. I like a fuller coverage foundation that is long lasting and will still look as good when I leave work as it did when I got there.
I would not purchase this foundation in the future but I probably would recommend it for younger people wearing light makeup that have fresh faces already.

I love the foundation
When I applied it.It looked so nice and I have oily skin but it didn't make me more oily
Love love love
It's okay but I will be trying it again
Jas from USA
It feels comfortable on my face but it breaks up like CRAZY around my nose, undereyes, smile lines
Very nice foundation! Not buildable
Maggie from Seattle
This foundation looks and wears beautifully- however if you try to build it up, it starts to look dry and bunch up on your skin. If you stick to 1-2 layers, and spot conceal with your favorite concealer, this foundation is perfect!
Unfortunately I wouldn't purchase this product again
CpW from Boston, Massachusetts
I have normal skin with no problems so I thought this would be great for a light and natural coverage. Unfortunately this product did not absorb well into my skin at all and looked flaky. It was not easy to apply either with a brush or my fingers. Very disappointed as all the Milani products I have purchased have been of good quality.
carrrmen from Mesquite, Texas
Wore for 8+ hours and has not gotten oily, has a pretty finish! Looks like your skin but better. Very impressed on how this wore through the day
Mar from California
Beautiful coverage, doesn't appear heavy or cakey. Does not emphasize fine lines...bravo! I'd say coverage is light, and buildable. Staying power is decent, I'd say, 8-10 hours. I sure hope this foundation stays around forever. It truly is 'that perfect foundation'.
the best foundation ever

New Favorite Foundation
agentcurls from Roseburg, OR
Really enjoying this foundation; it's lightweight coverage with a natural finish that does not look too dry on my dry skin. This color (200) was also a good match for my skin (light, with neutral-to-warm undertones).
May from Boston
So, I have tan indian skin and I've struggled to get a proper shade match a this time-the only foundation that I actually got properly shade matched to is the nyx born to glow foundation. but this foundation has replaced it because the shade match is amazing!!! I hot the perfect shade match and the foundation just blends perfectly into my skin and its so beautiful and glowy, and literally one pump covers my whole face. Its so lightweight and just perfect for summer. A must buy for the hot summers right now, as well as if you just want something sheer and light coverage!
High end with a low price
Natalie from Brentwood, CA
This product is amazing. The consistency of the product is just beautiful. It is full coverage and the shade range is amazing. I will be buying this again.
The texture is amazing
Brenda from Oklahoma
This foundation is amazing, I have combination skin, and this feels hydrating and lightweight. The finish is very natural and it doesn't dry or highlight my dry spots. I will definitely repurchase.
10/10 WOULD RECOMMEND
HayHay from Washington
I've only used this product ONCE and I've fallen in love. I typically don't use foundation if anything I used the Covergirl skin milk but that just wasn't working for me. I tried this for the first time the day of a photo shoot for my workplace and I've found my perfect foundation with the perfect shade and coverage. I won't use anything else from now on. 10/10 definitely a GREAT starter foundation and advanced foundation as well!
I would buy this product again.
Weddingmom from Benton AR
Purchase this because I needed a more coverage for dark circles under my eye and the match to my skin tone was awesome.
Marissa from Michigan
It has a bit of a paint smell. Very sheer, not really build able
M from United States
After purchasing this one I was pleasently surprised. I usually use one and a half pumps that I dot all over my face then with a dense brush I buff and blend into the skin and it does the job. I set with some powder right afterwards. And even as I'm applying the foundation I can see my small imperfections in terms of small blemishes, slight discoloration "blur" out. It also lasts a long time. I seldomly use primer, and this lasts from the morning until the late evening. I highly recommend this foundation if you're looking for something of light to medium coverage and you have combination/oily skin.
Natalia from Rockville
Light to medium buildable coverage that makes you look natural without looking greasy.
Screen Queen gives my $50.00 Foundation a run for its money!
Cocoa from Overland Park KS
At first I used Screen Queen on the weekend. I used the expensive foundation during the week. Since Ms. Rona hit I started using Screen Queen everyday. She doesn't disappoint! People are shocked when I tell them what I'm using. Screen Queen wears like a $50.00 foundation for me. Looks so natural and dewy. I have to touch up maybe once during the day. Thus foundation is AWESOME!
Sam from Greer, SC
Great glow. Light to medium coverage. Stays in place.
I wouldn't repurchase

My Next Ride or Die Foundation?!
Kristen from Seattle
I saw good reviews about this foundation and I wanted to try it. Medium, but build able coverage. ULTA has a great color matching guide so I was able to purchase my perfect shade in one shot.
Made my skin look flawless. Lasted through a 10 hour wear test. I think this might be my new favorite foundation.
As mentioned earlier, I like a full coverage look. I was able to achieve that by building up the product. It's also thicker in consistency, not as watery as sone foundation.
Highly recommend this foundation.
I would buy this product AGAIN!!
Ashley from Undisclosed
I love it!! Definitely recommend!
Great if not wearing long.
Margaret from Undisclosed
Perfect color for me. Blends beautifully. Looks great for a couple of hours and then starts settling in all the wrong places. Or it just starts breaking down completely. Used with Milani primer and other competitor primers.
Totally amazing!!!!! Must have
Rebekah from Undisclosed
I absolutely LOVE THIS FOUNDATION!! Like, wow! I honestly wasn't expecting it to be so good! I love it!!!
Marlene from Undisclosed
I can't believe I found my perfect shade on the first try! This is really comfortable and medium coverage. It can run just a touch dry on dry skin, so just moisturize well before hand. I like it with both a brush and a sponge.
Nice foundation but pump was broken when it arrived
Laura from Chino Hills, CA
I bought this foundation from Ulta in the shade "warm nude" and it arrived with a broken pump. The only way to get the product out is to unscrew the cap and use the tube from the pump to put it on a sponge because the foundation is too thick to pour out.
That said, I do like the foundation because it has a very nice luminous finish that brightens up my face while still looking natural. The color "warm nude" is a little too peach for me but it does give a healthy appearance so I don't mind.
I was looking for something with light coverage to use while working from home and this foundation is very nice for that too, but I wouldn't buy it again because it's such a hassle to get it out of the bottle.
