MILANI BAKED BLUSH REVIEW

I recently went to K-Mart the other day.....yes, K-Mart.  Honestly K-Mart is not my favorite store, but I went there specifically because I knew they would have this one shade of blush.

I have been wanting to try out the Milani Baked Blush in 05 - Luminoso for so long...and every time I go to Target or CVS, they are sold out of that shade (probably because it's amazing).



I have never tried any blushes from Milani, but I am pleasantly surprised.  The blush costs about $7.99 and can be found at Target, K-Mart, CVS, Walgreens, etc.  

The gold packaging is a little cheap-looking, but the blush itself lifts up to reveal a mirror and a brush underneath.  The brush is not really usable -- but I guess it's a plus to have if you're in a rush.

Luminoso is a peachy shade with a hint of golden shimmer.  It's a bit powdery to the touch, but when you apply it with a blush brush to your face, it's not powdery at all!  It has such a beautiful and smooth finish, and leaves your cheeks with the most beautiful peachy/coral glow.  

The color is quite blendable -- I have been wearing it by itself, or blending it with my MAC Minerealize Blush in Gentle, to add some pink.  

Luminoso goes on fairly sheer, but it is extremely blendable, so you can get a great color payoff.

I highly, highly recommend trying out this Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso -- or in any of the other shades that they offer.  I bought this about three weeks ago and have worn it every single day since...so it's obviously a new favorite.

  7. Looks like a great natural blush! I had a Milani blush. I can't remember what it was called. But it had great pigmentation and I agree, the packaging it a little cheap. I think I ended up giving the blush to my mom because she liked it haha.

  14. It's so hard to find Milani products where I live. I'd heard so much about their blushes and I'd love to try them, but they're hard to get a hold of. I love this color pick. Great review!
