Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso Review

Good morning! For today's post I reviewed one of Milani's baked blushes. The shade is Luminoso. Since last summer, I have converted to using only cream/mousse type blushes. I love the flawless look that comes from that formula. So I was nervous of what my opinion of a non cream blush would be.

For reference, this is how this blush comes packaged. I like it and didn't think it was too cheap looking or anything like that. The actual blush pan lifts up and underneath there is a mirror and little brush there.  

Now onto swatches! This is a peachy blush which was a bit out of my comfort zone...I always gravitate towards pink/bronze shades. But I really think this shade can be universally flattering on any skin tone...I would love to see what this looks like on you ladies with darker skin. When I first swatched this on my hand, I noticed more shimmer/glitter than what I am used to. But when actually using it on my face it wasn't too much at all! I quickly fell in love with this shade!

Here are swatches...all the same shade but I feel like the multiple pics help capture what this blush is all about best. See how natural this looks? It really compliments the skin instead of taking over.

 And finally, here is the look I put together with this blush. I love the glowy look that this blush creates without it just looking like I have on a bronzer.

This blush retails for $7.99 on Milani's website. Have you ladies tried any of Milani's Baked Blushes? Thanks for reading!! <3

  1. You look lovely!
    I tried this one out and loved it too! This was the one Milani sent free from their Facebook I think? Anyway, I went out and bought another shade. Great blushes!

  2. I have this in Coralista, and I think it is a lovely shade. I past up Luminoso, and am now kicking myself for it after seeing your swatches! It looks so pale in the pan, but the peach shimmer is divine. Thanks for the review and for showing the product in action!

  3. Wow, you look so beautiful =). And your smile is just perfect! =)

  4. I just bought this one the other day! I LOVE Milani blushes! They last a long time, and they are really pigmented. I don't think I'm going to be buying any high end blushes anymore! Like the commenter up above, I have Corlista too, and I find these too very similar.

  5. Thats so pretty! I might have to go pick this up asap!
