Blushers are one of my favourite make up items! When I don’t self-tan, I’m very pale, so using blush gives me a nice healthy glow. Apart from that, blush can really be helpful in defining the cheek bones (in addition to contouring and bronzing).
One of my favourite blushes are the ones from Milani. These baked blushes are just gorgeous – the shades they come in are just beautiful too. These are the ones I have in my collection:
Packaging: Each blush weighs about 3.5g and comes in a circular blush compact that’s gold in colour. The lid is see through, with Milani Baked Blush written on it, and opens up into two layers. The top layer reveals the blush itself, as well as a small circular mirror at the top; and the bottom contains a small blush brush. Personally, I prefer to use an actual blush brush and not this. On the back part is the blush colour name and number.
Shades: I said it before, and I’ll say it again. These blush shades are just gorgeous! Take a look at the veining in each colour. They’re just exquisite, and all blend together beautifully.
Texture: All these shades are highly pigmented – little really goes a long way. Their texture is also very soft and velvety.
Top Swatches: From left to right:
Luminoso (05) – One of the most popular Milani Baked Blush shades. A gorgeous subtle peachy colour with mild gold glitters in it. This would look amazing paired up with a smokey eye, or a simple day time look.
Carolina (08) – An intense and bright coral colour with silver glitters in it.
Delicioso Pink (10) – Another intense, bright colour! This is a shocking cool toned pink that’s completely matte and super smooth in texture.
Dolce Pink (01) – A bright, sparkly pink shade with gold glitters.
Top Swatches: From Left to Right:
Berry Amore (03): A pretty peachy colour with gold glitters in it. Perfect for giving a subtle, warm bronzed glow.
Rose D’Oro (02): A warm tone reddish bronze colour.
Bellissimo Bronze (06): An intense bronzed blush that contains shimmers in it.
Red Vino (09): A deep tone plum colour with subtle shimmers in it. Perfect for a beautiful Autumn/Winter look.
Cost: These baked blushes, and the brand as a whole, are quite affordable. I get them from Amazon UK for about €10.60 each. As they’re highly pigmented, they also last a long time.
Verdict: These blushes are great! Gorgeous colours, highly pigmented, good lasting power and well priced. Definitely one’s to try out!
