Glam Morena: Review: Milani Baked Blush.

Review: Milani Baked Blush.

Today's post is a review of the Milani Baked Blushes. So far I must say from what I've picked up from the newer Spring drugstore items that the Milani Baked Blushes are definitely my favorite. I knew as soon as I read about these that I had to have some!

There are 9 shades available and I own 6. I passed on Dolce Pink and Luminoso and I'm on the fence about purchasing those. They would be lovely on lighter or medium skin tones though. I probably would purchase Terra Sole, but it's only available online.




Description: A luxurious powder blush that features a mélange infusion of colors baked on Italian terracotta tiles. Easy to use, sensorial in texture, the nuances of color become extraordinarily luminous. Silky smooth application leaves your face looking healthy and radiant all day.

Retail Price: $7.49, $6.97

Purchased From: Walgreens, Wal-Mart

Milani Baked Blush - Rose D'oro

Milani Baked Blush - Berry Amore

Milani Baked Blush - Bellissimo Bronze

Milani Baked Blush - Fantastico Mauve

Milani Baked Blush - Corallina

Milani Baked Blush - Red Vino

PROS:
  • Inexpensive
  • Highly pigmented
  • Long lasting formula
  • All shades are permanent
  • An assorstment of shades


  • CONS:
  • Packaging, due to the flip-flopping upon opening it


  • Overall Thoughts: I love, love, love baked makeup! The Milani Baked Blushes are no exception. There are shades available for everyone and every skin tone. Plus for blushes in the $7-$8 range they're at least worth a try.

    The standout shades for me are Rose D'oro, Corralina, and Fantastico Mauve. A lot of people are claiming Rose D'oro to be a dupe for Stereo Rose and this is not true at all. I find Stereo Rose to be a more frosty, pink while Rose D'oro is more of a coral. Rose D'oro is actually way more pigmented and what I expected Stereo Rose to be.

    Some people who may want to pass on these are those who are not fond of shimmer or glitter. None of the Milani Baked Blushes are matte or satin finishes. While all the blushes do contain shimmer they do not leave a "glitter bomb" upon application, but rather a sheen or glow.

    Swatches of the Milani Baked Blushes!


    Do you own any Milani Baked Blushes? What are your favorites?

    Great post and video. I FINALLY found the baked blushes at Walgreens. I picked Berry Amore which I love. I want Fantastico Mauve only because I've never seen that shade of blush in a drugstore brand.
