Review: Milani Baked Blush Luminoso Bella Bellini
I introduced Milani makeup products over a week ago. Check it out right here. I’m going to begin reviewing the Milani makeup products. Let’s start off with the Milani Baked Blushes. I have the ones in Luminoso and Bella Bellini. What are these Baked Blushes anyways? Let’s find out!
Milani Baked Blush:
- Richly pigmented and highly buildable
- Beautiful matte and shimmery shades of baked blush
- Perfect cheeky pop of color for every skin tone
- Sunbaked on Italian terracotta tiles
- Warm finish adds radiance that is the essence of beauty
- Shape, contour, highlight your best features
Here they are together. Side-by-side. On the left, Luminoso. On the right, Bella Bellini.
There’s a mirror inside the compact too. Also, a brush. I never used the brushes provided in these compacts. I find most of them to be of poor quality. They are too harsh on my skin.
Swatches of Milani Baked Blushes:
I have Luminoso and Bella Bellini. Luminoso is a light pink shade. This one is very popular. The other one is called Bella Bellini. It is a coral-peach shade. I’ve heard good things about Milani Baked Blushes, so that’s why I purchased them. From my first impression, I thought they were good. They were super soft, pigmented, and easy to apply. They were better compared to other drugstore brands I’ve used in the past. Over time, my experience with these blushes changed. Mind you, I’ve been using Milani Baked Blushes for nearly a year! These blushes appear pigmented at first and are buildable, but the color fades easily and quickly. It doesn’t last on the skin. I’ve tried using a makeup primer beforehand too with the same results. The color vanishes in a few hours. Also, they’re not matte as they claim to be. They are shimmery with specs of glitter. More luminous with a sheen to them. As a blush, meh. It’s not the worst. Besides using Milani Baked Blushes as a blush alone, I love using them as a makeup highlighter. I sweep them over my eyelids, forehead, nose, and chin. This works out great, since the color fades. It leaves a subtle, pretty sparkle on the skin. If you’re looking for a drugstore blush that are decent and affordable, give them a try (Luminoso, Bella Bellini). Keep in mind that Milani makeup products are cruelty-free. It’s a nice way to move towards the cruelty-free lifestyle. ?
