milani 'the multitasker' face powder


While I already have a pretty decent makeup collection, there is one product in particular that I can't help but pick up whenever I see it- powder. It's not the most interesting of beauty items, but it's just so useful. When I spotted Milani's The Multitasker Face Powder I couldn't pass up the cute pattern pressed into it, oh, and it might have been on sale too...

 the glitziest powder puff... ever!


'A luxurious, velvet-soft face powder, specially formulated to provide a dimensional yet natural-matte finish. Provides perfect light to medium coverage.'  

I wasn't too sure what to expect from Milani, in terms of their complexion makeup items, as I've really only ever used their blushes, but luckily the quality is consistent. The powder has a great consistency that is finely milled and smooth feeling. It's packed so that it's easy to pick up with a brush, but stays firmly pressed and doesn't kick up any excess powder. The fact that it is firmly pressed  means the floral lace pattern doesn't get obliterated which is nice to see. The pattern is cute and makes this powder that little bit different from the pack. Also worth mentioning, is the scent. Too many powders have what can only be described as an 'old lady' scent, but this has a lightly sweet scent that is almost cinnamon like. It's different, but I like it.

In terms of wear, this is an excellent powder! While it can be used for setting, finishing, and blotting I tend to mainly use it for setting/finishing as I don't usually need to blot throughout the day. The finish is a very natural matte- I usually don't like a full on matte as it doesn't always work with drier skin types- but this looks and feels like skin and doesn't settle into pores and dry spots. The coverage is fairly light, but it does provide enough to lightly blur imperfections.

Overall, this is a great, inexpensive powder to have on hand. It's great for on the go as well as it has both a full mirror and puff housed under the powder. It makes the packaging slightly bulkier, but what can you do? Have you tried this powder? What's your favorite powder?
