Makeup Review: Milani Baked Powder Blush

Product: Milani Baked Powder Blush

Review: This Milani blush is one of the most hyped must-haves with the vloggers and bloggers I like, so I decided to test it out myself.  I now own it in Luminoso and Delizioso Pink, and I love them! Luminoso is a lovely peachy shimmer shade that can be used on its own, over other blushes, or as a highlight. I think I've even used it as an eyeshadow once. I can't imagine it looking bad on anyone. Delizioso Pink is a cool-toned matte pink that is super pretty and great for days when I want to look fresh and dewy.

They are, hands down, one of the highest quality drugstore makeup products you can buy. Not only are they insanely pigmented, but they are finely milled and last all day long on my cheeks. I want them in every damn color, but my makeup collection is thisclose to being embarassing. It's almost overflowing the giant organizer I have! So I'm not allowing myself to buy any more of these blushes until I've reviewed all the blushes I currently have in my stash and have purged the shitty ones. Which might take me a year or so, cause I get lazy. Let's be real.

I have zero bad things to say about this blush. Zip. Nada. Even the packaging is adorable AND it comes with a little mirror and a brush for touchups! Is the brush great? Haha, no. But you can make it work if you want to. Overall, I like this blush better than Lancome, better than Clinique, better than any other drugstore blush I've ever tried.

All in all, I would say that all the raves I've heard from bloggers/vloggers is 100% true, except for 1 thing. Luminoso is totally not a NARS Orgasm dupe! I mean, they're both a little shimmery, but they are totally different shades! Luminoso is a champagne peach shimmer shade that is almost a light gold. So different! Beautiful, but not the same. Maybe on some people in certain light in can look similar, but on me with my neutral medium shading, they are waaaay different. If I were to apply Luminoso on the left and Orgasm on the right, it would be really noticeable. I should actually do this and take pics for you guys at some point. If I do, I'll post an update.

But yeah. Buy this blush. And if you order the wrong color online, it's only $7.50!
