Blush -MILANI -Baked Blush - Luminoso

I had high hopes for this blush based on the great reviews. Alas, on me it looks dull, muddy, lifeless. Lovely color, just not for me.

Lipstick -MILANI -Amore Shine Liquid Lip Color

on 11/13/2018 12:44:00 PM


I have the shade Idol, and in the tube it looks like the dusty muted medium mauve-pink I was looking for, but on my lips it's red! If I wanted red lips, I would have gotten a red lip product! This is the only reason I didn't give this product the highest rating, as other than this shade issue I like everything about it.
It's thicker and on the sticky side, which means it lasts a decent amount of time, it's glossy and makes my lips look smooth, it has a faint scent that is pleasant and it feels a bit cool for the first few minutes.
I will probably buy another shade because of the formula, but I am disappointed that the shade in the tube is nothing like the way it looks on my lips.

Liquid -MILANI -Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer

on 11/13/2018 12:31:00 AM


I’ve repurchased this foundation three times. The color range is limited, but for me, the lightest shade is a perfect match. For me, this is the best foundation on earth. I’m 37 years old, and I work outside as a tour guide in New Orleans. I wear this foundation in the SUMMER here (again, outside), and it actually lasts through two tours with only minimal pressed powder touch ups needed. It wears comparably to Lancôme’s Tient Idole on me, except that this is vastly cheaper. I do need 2 pumps to get the coverage I want instead of the 1 I need with prestige brands, and I find that the coverage is a bit dewy, rather than matte, but I love love love this foundation. I’ve used high end products for years and now having switched to this I will never go back. My only caveat is that it’s hard to get the last of the product out of the bottle, I always have to use a tiny spatula to get the last of the product out. But, overall, a small price to pay for a fantastic drugstore foundation powers through some of the most extreme weather conditions imaginable.

Highlighters -MILANI -Strobelight Instant Glow Powder

I absolutely LOVE this highlighter. It’s buildable when you want a striking look but it’s also very subtle. Love it so much.

Brows -MILANI -Stay Put Brow Color (cream/gel)

I know people have done a per gram cost comparison of this to Anastasia Dipbrow and while it rings it a little higher, there is one thing that is forgotten in this equation. With Milani, you are getting the dual-ended brush/spoolie applicator. And it’s not a bad applicator at all, the brush is rather stiff which makes it quite precise in laying down product as well as blending into brow hairs. To be perfectly honest, the quantity is perfect because it doesn’t dry out since you are using it up faster than a larger pot of pomade. I purchased the shade Brunette which is similar to Medium Brown in Dipbrow. The consistency is also similar. Would I call it a dupe? Pretty darn close to one, that’s for sure! Long lasting, waterproof, shade works for me, applicator is good. I can’t think of anything negative to say honestly.
