Milan Minerals Review Part 2

I think I'm slowly getting the hang of applying Milan mineral foundation, which is by using a big, fluffy brush (I use Red Earth powder brush) applied in a sweeping motion, as opposed to buffing. The effect is really natural, not cakey, and the foundation lasted the whole day. I tried Kiana shade today, and I think I'm liking it just because I don't need to mix foundations. So which looks better, Kiana or Julisa + Caprice?


I don't have a shut-eye EOTD this time, and this pic is the best I could find that shows off the eye colors.

Hi Aileen - Gosh you look good in all your foundation choices! I can't tell which looks better (Kiana or Julisa+Caprice) but now I am wondering if I should try Kiana myself, and check again if it's really too dark for me...

Thanks Lili - I think I'm liking all 3 shades! :) Do let me know how you like Kiana!

Hi Aileen, you are lucky you can wear all 3! Well, I think I can too, but I get ultra picky about wanting to find the most perfect one :) I was in a hurry this morning so I'll try Kiana tomorrow and let you know.
