MILANI BAKED POWDER BLUSHES


Oh my lucky stars! I think I've found the greatest, most pigmented, delightfully smooth blush and at only $8.49US a pop! Or for us Aussie's you can get these here, for $16.50.

I purchased these during my US trip in September and ever since I started using them, I find myself reaching for one on a daily basis. We all know I was first attracted to them, because the packaging was gold, and gold is my weakness. 


Left to Right: Dolce Pink (Midtone Pink with golden Shimmer),  Bella Rose ( Bright Pink. Matte, slightly satin),  Carolina ( Peach with silver shimmer) and Luminoso (Peach Satin)

My one little criticism about the packaging is it's quite chunky and takes up a lot of room in any make up collection. The reason behind this, is because the packaging not only includes the blush,  but a little mirror and brush for those who want to touch up throughout the day. The reality is, you don't need too touch up with this product, the formula of these blushes is so delightful, they last on the skin all day and coming from someone with combination skin, that's is a feat and a great test to pass. 

The packaging claims that these blushes, shapes, contours and highlights. I personally wouldn't use any of the shades to contour, but a lot of the shimmery shades are great for a blush/highlight combo - allowing you to skip the additional step of applying a highlighter.

If you only buy one of these blushes, my recommendation and my favourite is Luminoso. This blush is just amazing, will rival any high end blush and is a very close dupe for Hourglass Dim Infusion with more of a sheen.
