If you’re exhausted and you only have 5 bucks, definitely go get yourself a coffee so you feel awake. If you have $10, get yourself a coffee AND a Milani Baked Blush so you can actually look awake. These give the prettiest glow to your face. They act almost as a highlighter, making your cheeks look bigger and your skin look healthy. It’s weird but I swear I look happier when I wear these, which is perfect for when you’re just too tired to smile.
Consistency. I’m not crazy about Delizioso Pink. I find it to be a little chalky, which is strange because the others are really smooth and silky.
Colors. I can’t think of another baked blush that looks so pretty sitting in the packaging. They have metallic micro-flecks throughout which gives your cheeks the glow I mentioned.
Price. This varies, but they’re around $5.99 at the drugstore.
Pigmentation. This is a tricky subject when it comes to blush because, while you usually want a product to be super pigmented, with blush I like to build it slowly in order to avoid over doing it. I find Nars blushes to actually be too pigmented sometimes, for example. So, I really like the pigmentation on these, especially for a baked blush. You don’t have to dig into the product to pick it up and you don’t have to tap it all off your brush either.
Packaging. I don’t like to talk about packaging too much because I don’t really want fancy, expensive packaging. I’d rather have plain, sturdy packaging and pay less. However, I wish the packaging was more solid: I always feel like the hinges could come undone any time I open them. Underneath the blush is another section with a mirror and brush, but honestly I wish they had done without that and just made the compact higher quality.
All The Best,
PS. Manderz Hogan: I have a new one of these for you since I broke one of your shadows on Amanda’s birthday, I’ll bring it when I come to Monmouth on Monday!
