Initial thoughts: I discovered this foundation by accident after accidentally forgetting my foundation at home. After a late night adventure to Walgreens, I discovered this gem. Usually when I purchase foundation I have already completed extensive research on the product. But, since I was pressed for time (was familiar with the Milani brand) I decided to go for it. I was pleased to see that this new line contained so many shades from pale to brown to dark ebony (perfect for women of all skin tones). I was also very pleased at its affordable price: $9.99 for 1.0oz.
My reaction: I consider this foundation to be full coverage so a little bit goes a long way. When too much is applied it can look cakey. I did like that this foundation went on smoothly and was very hydrating. But, after about an hour, my skin looked more oily than dewy. My suggestion: use a matifying primer as a base and a good setting powder on top. As a foundation, I think that this product is really nice. On the other hand, I would not use this product as my concealer. I personally prefer a stronger consistency, thicker texture and lighter color for my concealer as it helps to hide any darkness and puffiness in my under eye area. But, for someone who is looking for a double duty product that will tie together their makeup look, this is the product for you.
Do I recommend it: Yes! This product is really nice and very affordable. Most importantly, there is a shade for everyone. This foundation/concealer will help you to create a more flawless canvas while removing imperfections. I would definitely recommend this product for the fall/winter months as it will give you amazing coverage while making the skin dewy, glowy and sexy.
