Today I have a review of The Multitasker Face Powder from Milani Cosmetics. I purchased this recently when I was in Nova Scotia visiting my parents earlier this month. I’ve never see Milani at pharmacies here in Montreal, so whenever I’m in NS, I always look for Milani – plus it happened to be on sale! (Info in italics is taken from the Milani website)
This matte, oil-free powder performs as a foundation, a shine-zapping touch-up and even a highlighter and bronzer—depending on the shade. An instant addiction for anyone on-the-go, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
I’ve been using this face powder as a setting powder and for touch-ups during the day. It is matte, but I use it over my more dewy finish foundations to achieve a not quite dewy, not quite matte, finish. Hopefully that makes sense. I don’t like a super, flat, matte finish for my skin, but I think that it would achieve that if used over a matte finish foundation if that is your preference.
The Multitasker Face Powder is currently listed as being available in six different shades – 02 Light Medium,, 03 Medium, 04 Light Tan, 05 Tan, 06 Medium Tan, and 07 Dark Tan. I have shade 02 Light Medium, which is a perfect shade match for me.
The compact is metallic looking plastic on the outside and cheap plastic looking on the inside – but it is a sturdy casing. On the inside there is mirror, and a small velvet pad application in the compartment under the powder. I rarely ever use the pad that comes with as I prefer to use a brush for applying powder, but kept it for touch-ups.
All in all, I like this face powder.
Have you tried this one? What is your fave face powder?
