These years, makeup brands are trying to make lots of products, lots of varieties, and lots of options to the makeup game. There are a lot of drugstore products which are as good as the high end product and many people call it Dupes. It means that a product resembles a lot to other product with the cheaper price range.
Milani is one of the drugstore brands which is really good and high class quality. There are already many product reviewed by famous beauty blogger and Youtuber and lots of them love this product. They love Milani because of their cheap price but really good quality.
Today, we are talking about one of their famous product which is Milani Baked Blush.
This product claims:
Richly pigmented and highly buildable, the beautiful matte and shimmery shades of Baked Blush are the perfect cheeky pop of color for every skin tone. Sun baked on Italian terracotta tiles, the warm finish adds a radiance that is the very essence of beauty. Shape, contour and highlight your best features.

This product is the Holy Grail in the makeup market. They say that it’s really smooth and the color ranges are all pretty. I choose the shade Luminoso, which is the most favorite shade of all. Luminoso is a peachy and glowy blush that will make your face as it is naturally blush. This blush is really pretty for all skin in my opinion, but will be best in the white until yellow skin.
For me, I have quite love hate relationship with this blush. I like this blush because it gives you glow but not glittery. It makes you glow! The color is nice too, it is a nice peach and really natural in my skin. The problem is, because the shade is really natural, it is kind of hard to make the color come out. I have to work hard so that the color will show in my cheeks. In my opinion, for people who have extremely fair skin, it will be harder to make the color show in their skin. You have to apply much! It is also run out pretty quickly. The other thing, I was quite disappointed with the size. I thought that it will be a whole box but it turns out only half, because the other half is used for the mirror and the brush.
To sum up, here is my pros and cons for this product:
- Nice peach color
- It makes you glow! It has shimmer and not glittery
- The color is really natural, so don’t be afraid it will look fake on you
- The color does not really show – it means that you have to apply much
- For extremely fair skin, I think you have to work hard to apply it so that the color will show

I’m confused what to say on this product. Not that I don’t like it but I don’t love it. It gives me a glow which is really nice and the color is nice too. But the other side, I had to work hard to make the color come out. But I still recommended it because maybe others have different skin, different technique, and can make this work smoothly! J
Until next time!
