Does Milani’s HD Advanced Concealer look familiar to you? Sure did to me when I spotted this product at CVS recently! The resemblence to YSL’s Touche Eclat is pretty strong, so I snatched up the last one in the “light” shade and hoped it would live up to my expectations. In terms of packaging, this is very similar in style to YSL with a gold, click pen. It took me a good 20 clicks to get the product finally going, and once I did I slowly started to love this product with each click thereafter.
Milani intends for this to be used as an all-purpose concealer – anywhere you want to brighten or cover an imperfection. I really like the consistency of the formula – it isn’t runny nor is it too thick – and there’s the perfect amount of illumination to the product. The shade selection is pretty limited with four options, but the light works great for my fair skin. I love to use this under my eyes as it really does help brighten the undereye area weightlessly. I stick with my Laura Mercier secret camoflouge for covering blemishes, but think this could do the trick as well.
Milani did a job well done with the HD Advanced Concealer and I highly recommend it if you can find a shade that matches. It’s probably the best seven dollars I’ve spent on a drugstore product in awhile!
