One of the most common complaints that I hear from Women of Color is that drugstore foundations don't offer many choices (if any at all) for deeper skintones. I couldn't agree more, so when Milani informed me that they recently released two new shades in their Cream-To-Powder Makeup line, I did a little happy dance and then I promptly asked them for samples so that I could swatch the two new shades for you.
The two new shades in this range are Warm Spice and Pecan:
Milani Cream-To-Powder Makeup in Pecan and Warm Spice
(retail: $7.99 each, 0.28 oz)
Keep reading for swatches of both new shades...
As you can see, Pecan has more of a yellow undertone to it, while Warm Spice has more of a pink undertone to it. If it helps, for reference, my skintone is NC20 but the inside of my arm (which is where I swatched these) is probably closer to NC15.
I also received a shade of this foundation that's closer to my own skintone, so I'll be sure to post a full review after I've given this foundation a thorough testing. In the meantime, I was so excited about these new shade options that I wanted to get these swatches up ASAP in case any of you were looking for deeper foundation shades at the drugstore. I just wanted to be sure you knew that these were now available.
You can purchase Milani Cream-To-Powder foundation at CVS, Kmart and select Walgreens and Target stores throughout the nation. You can also purchase this product directly from the Milani website.
