I am quite mad as I am typing this post for the second time since Blogger decided to delete it just for fun, and apparently, I am not the only one who have had this problem recently. Since most of you ladies are fellow bloggers, you know how tedious it is to write a blog post, but can you imagine how frustrating it is to start all over again? I am glad I had not deleted my pictures though since I tend to get rid of them once my posts have gone live. Oh well, I think it is time I start to backup my articles, lesson learned! If you are using Blogger, please be careful as well!
I have never used anything from Milani before since, as far as I know, their products are not available in Canada, but I had the chance to receive their Baked Blush in Luminoso as a gift, and it seriously blew me away! Milani Baked Blush is a luxurious powder blush that feels incredibly soft and silky to the touch and it blends amazingly smoothly on the skin. It has a really light texture, and it barely feels like you have something on your cheeks.
I have recently featured this blush in my 'Everyday makeup routine' post and even though I have been using it almost every day for a whole month, I still can't get enough of it! It is just perfect to me - it is seriously the prettiest, universally-flattering, soft golden peachy/coral shade ever! Even though it is said to be a shimmer blush, it contains no sparkles so instead of leaving me looking like a disco ball, it infuses my cheeks with a stunning sheen that illuminates my skin and instantly makes me look awake.
I must admit I did find the gold plastic packaging a bit tacky at first, but it seems to have grown on me. It includes a mirror and a small, flat and not so soft brush that I probably won't use, but I will keep it in case of emergency touch-ups, housed in a separated compartment underneath the blush itself.
Luminoso is really my favorite blush at the moment for those mornings when I am in a rush and I just want a luminous wash of color on my cheeks, since its pigmentation is perfect for me without needing to build it up. I think it would work well as an highlighter on the forehead, chin and nose too since it gives a glowy, sheer, luminous look to the skin.
Milani Baked Blush is available in 9 shades at CVS, Walgreens and Target in the US but you can also get it online at Cherry Culture for $7.99.
