Milani Even Touch Powder Foundation – Review & swatches

Milani Even Touch Powder Foundation – Review & swatches

Thursday, July 04, 2013 Sara Hassan , 21 Comments

I mostly like to wear a medium-coverage liquid foundation or bb cream to work/school but sometimes when I feel super lazy and wish to go au naturel, I turn to powder foundations for their ease of use.

Even-Touch Powder Foundation
A velvety-light, oil-free formula that applies with the ease of a lightweight powder, with the full-color coverage and wear of a liquid foundation. Skin looks and feels comfortable, never dry. Mirror and sponge applicator included.

My thoughts
Milani Even-Touch powder foundation comes in golden compact with a flip lid. When you open it, you see a mirror on top and a sponge applicator underneath the pan. I have this in ‘Fresco’ which is slightly dark for my NC30 skin tone. Also, it has somewhat strong yellow/peachy undertones which would go well with Asian skin tones I suppose. Anyone with pink undertones might find it a bit too orangey on their skin so I suggest trying it before making a purchase.

I am very impressed with the texture. For one thing, it’s finely milled and has a silky formula that applies like a dream. It does not feel chalky while it provides a smooth, natural-looking coverage. Though it gives a light coverage, you can build it up to medium if you desire. The finish you get with it is a soft matte effect instead of a stark matte that some powders provide. It covers minor imperfections pretty well and evens out my skin beautifully. However, you would still need to use a concealer if you want to hide those nasty dark circles or deep blemishes. I like to wear it alone and also use it as a finishing powder; it works great both ways. Moreover, I absolutely enjoy the light feeling I get wearing this. It’s as if I have nothing on my skin.

Since I’ve got a combination skin with dry areas and an oily T-zone, I noticed that it doesn’t highlight dryness (for now it doesn’t since it’s very hot and sweaty these days). I have worn it on many occasions (work, shopping) and different timings of the day and it’s safe to say that it controls oil on my face very well. For the first two hours, my face is completely shine-free. After that, I can see some shine peeking through but it certainly does not turn my face into a greasy mess so thumbs up for that. The wear time is consequently admirable.

All in all, this powder is a great choice for anyone with combination/oily skin wanting coverage that doesn’t appear cakey and has good oil control.

You might like it if…
  • You have combination/oily skin
  • You expect a smooth, soft matte finish
  • It conceals minor imperfections and evens out skin
  • You expect light to medium coverage
  • You like the soft and silky texture
  • It helps keep excess oil at bay
  • It doesn’t enhance dryness
  • You expect a good wear time
You might not like it if…
  • You don’t find your match in the range
  • You find the undertones yellow/peachy for your liking
  • It doesn’t hide blemishes completely
