After nearly more than 2 weeks of no new posts, this time I made a post review of drugstore Face Prime : MILANI PRIME SHIELD (Face Primer Mattifying + Pore-Minimizing).
Milani has a wide range of products ranging from face primer, foundation, lipstick you name it, they got it for you. For Face Primer Milani issued 2 types :
1. Milani Prime Perfection (Face Primer Hydrating + Pore-Minimizing) for dry skin claims:
This face prime add radiance and a healthy-looking glow to your complexion while softening the look of fine lines, large pores and flaws. It also blends invisibly and maintains the skin’s moisture balance, the resulting in an illuminating and flawless finish
2. Milani Prime Shield (Face Primer Mattifying + Pore-Minimizing) for oily skin claims:
Meet this invisible but powerful answer to picture-perfect skin. It softens the appearance of fine lines, large pores and flaws and creates a smooth canvas for makeup application. This primer translucent blends invisibly onto the skin, the resulting in a beautiful matte finish
My face is so oily (sometimes I’m sure if the USA knew it, then they will invade my face) so I chose to follow the instructions and use Milani Prime Shield.
The first impression of the packaging is “Practical”. A simple tube with an elegant black color (Milani Prime Perfection has white tube). Plastic packaging makes this face primer easy to bring while traveling. The texture of Milani Prime Shield surprises me. It is a gel, with a white color slightly transparent, like texture ointment. As soon as I apply it to the face, feels like forming a layer on the skin. Like you just put cold wax on your face (in positive way of course :P). It doesn’t has a smell which i like it. Easy to apply, which i like it. This layer believed to be able to withstand my excess oil production, which i like it. The primer layer is soft and thin in the face, and would make foundation stick to face perfectly and flawless, which i like it. 😛
Then what the cons..?? well again for my oily skin especially my T-zone, it doesn’t last as long as i wish. I used makeup almost a whole day, and after using for half day, my face starting to get oily again. But based on my previous face primer this one is better. Check out my pic below (took this picture with natural light, and yes my nose starting to get oily again 🙁
At the picture above, i was using L’oreal True Match Foundation after Milani Prime Shield. My skin face looks flawless but doesn’t look like i’m using heavy makeup. This face prime is really helpfull to set basic before makeup. Eventhought it doesn’t hold my oily T-zone perfectly. Above it all, these products are vegan ladies. A brand cruelty. So, interested to buy .. ??
