All blemishes are a nuisance, but in our opinion, texture has got to be the most frustrating kind. Even people with clear, spot-free skin have to deal with it. Sometimes it’s just the way skin looks, especially if you have naturally large pores. Unfortunately, applying makeup over texture usually accentuates it more, so covering up isn’t even always an option. And then, there was one. If your foundation fails to spackle over uneven nooks ‘n’ crannies, the famous Milani 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer could be your next favorite find.


Lauded by YouTube beauty gurus as one of the drugstore’s best foundations, the Milani 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer is a popular liquid base that’s garnered massive hype for it’s full coverage, comfortable feel, and airbrushed finish. In fact, it’s often been compared to luxury formulas, with many people calling it a dupe for Estée Lauder’s celeb-approved Double Wear Foundation. (A claim we plan to vet for ourselves, but that’s for another day!) It feels like a lightweight foundation and performs like a heavy-duty concealer. In a nutshell, this 2-in-1 foundation basically stands are your all-in-one base. It’ll cover up everything from dark eye bags, redness, pimples, dark spots, and—you guessed it—texture. Plus, it never looks too thick or cakey. According to one BeautyMNL customer review, it’s “very buildable so you can make it look quite natural if you wanted by just lessening the amount you put on your face.” So, if full-coverage isn’t what you need on a particular day, this formula can easily adjust.

We know those are a lot of claims to make—but after using the product ourselves, we can confirm all the online hype is true. Here’s how it fared on our officemate Larissa!
