Okay, how can a product be a concealer and a foundation you must be thinking? I was just as confused.
But, I’ve been trying out the Milani Prime Correct Primer recently, and I absolutely love it. Plus- it’s cruelty free! So, I thought why not give the foundation a go?!
I’ve got to say, I did buy this primarily as a foundation. The concealer thing was a bit of a novelty, and I thought it could be cool, but I mainly wanted to use this as a foundation.
Okay, so my first impressions of this product were pretty good. It’s quite thick in consistency, so I can see how it could be used as a concealer. I used quite a thin layer on my face and it gave me pretty good coverage- the only thing that I would say is that it dries quickly so you’ve gotta work fast!
I did try using it as a concealer as well, and I do get it. It’s certainly thick enough and high coverage enough to be used as one, but I personally prefer concealer to brighten. However, for dotting on to cover blemishes- this is fab!
I also love the pump-design of the bottle. The pump is actually grooved so that it fits your finger perfectly- it’s the little things! The bottle also looks classy, although it’s a shame about the sticker as it comes away a little making the bottle look a little tacky.
The foundation gave me a high-coverage, dewy look and I totally loved it. It blended out really nicely (even if I did have to work rather quickly with it), and it created a lovely base! I feel like this foundation may be perfect for summer when you want a little more coverage but still quite a dewy look!
So, the first time that I wore this was actually such a busy day for me! I was out for over 12 hours, it was a super humid day, and my day consisted of a driving lesson, work, a train journey, and even running! I’ve got to say, out of all the day’s that I could have tested this on, this one really pushed it to the limit!
However, I was actually supeeeer impressed!
At the end of the day, my makeup had actually mostly stayed put. And that was just with the primer and foundation alone, I did not even wear any setting spray.
The foundation still looked flawless, and even after a lot of sweating (we all do it), the coverage was still very good!
I actually didn’t look to awful at the end of the day either, which is a large improvement for me. This may just be my miracle foundation!
I’ve been trialling this foundation for a few weeks now and, I’ve got to say it, it’s a new favourite of mine. The formula is creamy and I really like that in a foundation, but it dries down to create a high-coverage and a pretty good staying-power, too! It makes my skin look incredible, and it has really given me a confidence boost!
I don’t tend to use it as a concealer unless I’ve got a really large blemish that I want to cover, but if I do then it provides the coverage amazingly well! Plus, the coverage is (obviously) the exact same colour as my foundation- winning!
It doesn’t oxide or leave me orange, even after sweating, and it doesn’t budge all day long. The finish is also gorgeous, and this has quickly become a daily staple in my Summer makeup routine- I love it! It also moisturises my skin pretty well and claims to be water-resistant.
I would recommend applying an area at-a-time though due to how quick it dries- just a little tip!
