Milani Baked Blush: Luminoso

Swatches & Review

About a month ago, I entered Milani's 10 10 10 Facebook and Twitter giveaway. One of the days that I entered, I was actually randomly selected as one of their 10 daily winners on twitter. The prize came about two weeks ago and their Luminoso Baked Blush was one of them.

The only blushes I have tried from Milani was their old pressed powder blush that was discontinued about a year ago, but I have been wanting to try their baked blush so this was perfect!
In the pan, it looks like a peachy shade with slight silver swirls around it. It looks like a *pink* galaxy. Since it is baked, it slightly rises up.
Under the blush itself, there is a mirror and a small brush. I am not a fan of the brush because it is pretty stiff/scratchy & it sheds.
When swatched, it is a peachy-apricot shade with slight shimmer. The shimmer is not very noticeable unless you look very closely. The color is light for me, but it is incredibly pigmented. For my swatch, I swiped my finger onto the blush once and onto my skin once & it was not patchy at all. It blended out very easily as well.

Overall, I like this blush. It is subtle, but it gives a nice flush onto the cheeks without looking like it is overdone. The only thing I do not like is the packaging because it feels very flimsy. I dropped it to test it out lid popped opem immediately. The brush and the mirror is a nice addition, but it is definitely not needed, and I think without it, the packaging for it would not be as bulky. The blush itself is great, but the packaging, not so much.

What do you think about this blush? Have you tried any other Milani blushes?


  1. I have this blush and I think it's pretty but I don't use it much. I have many other colors I like better. I think it's because I'm more into mattes :P x

    1. I'm more into mattes as well, but this seems like a nice blush for spring :)

  2. I really want to try one of these blushes. Milani isn't easily available where I live though.

    1. Aw, where are you from? If you're in the US, you can order directly from their website.
