Milani Baked Blush Review

I bought these two blushes on Cherry Culture. I don't recall for how much but it was during their 15% off sale awhile back.

Product 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.
Corallina & Luminoso
These are baked blushes that were made in Italy. They have a domed top and are housed in really nice gold plastic cases. The blush portion lifts up to reveal a  little brush. I would imagine it would be okay to use for sculpting the face but the bristles are a bit scratchy. I would prefer to use my own brush. There's also a small mirror as well.

L-R: Blended with a brush & then finger swatched ONCE!
Luminoso & Corallina

Luminoso: This is a peach. Its really gorgeous and would look lovely with all NC ladies. It looks kinda satin. It doesnt have much shimmer or none at all. It doesn't look metallic or anything. This is quite the perfect blush especially when one wants to contour the face a bit. This is quite pigmented. The blush itself is quite powdery and there was a lot of product flying when I swiped it lightly with my brush. You can't really tell its there in the photos but it is really lovely. 

Corallina: This is a raspberry and gold melange in the pan. Swatched its a golden raspberry with tiny glitters. I'm not joking. This is a glitter bomb. The colour is quite lovely and this is pigmented too but the fall out has spread all over. When applied, you can buff away the glitter a bit but there will still be some there. However, this would be a lovely flush of colour on the cheeks.

The Milani Baked blushes are really nice and pigmented and I recommend you try them. They are $7.99 USD on the Milani site.
I definitely would recommend Luminoso. Its awesome and would fit into next year's orangey trend.


  1. I heard great things about the Milani blushes. Good to know their brushes are a little scratchy though. Next time I'm out I'll have to pick these up.

  2. Both colors are beautiful, but I like Corallina more. Too bad there was some fallout, though :/
