Highlighters -MILANI -Strobelight Instant Glow Powder

on 7/22/2018 10:46:00 AM


Got this highlighter in the lightest shade, Afterglow, which is sort of a pale champagne tone that works well with my skin tone which is somewhat neutral to cool.

The regular cost at the drugstore for this is only about $10, but CVS is almost always having some sort of sale on Milani products or has a coupon for money off any cosmetics purchased totaling a certain amount. I used a coupon and some Extra Bucks and got this highlighter for about $4.

The packaging is quite nice - you can see the color and the embossed design through the lid. The product itself applies smoothly and I appreciate that you can build up the level of shimmer you want as I can do a very light sweep of this on a few areas for a daytime/office look or go more full-on if it's a nighttime look.

I know many people are going nuts over the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighters (I did purchase that myself in a different shade), but frankly, I think I like the Milani better as it can start off a little more subtle if you want a slight glow without looking like the Tin Man right out of the gate.

Blush -MILANI -Baked Blush - Luminoso

on 7/18/2018 4:59:00 PM


Like almost all of you out there, I have a lot of blush. Creams, powders, high end, low end, you name it but I find myself reaching for this one more often than not. It has the right amount of buildable pigmentation and a subtle gold glow which is not garish or inappropriate for the daytime. Even though this is not a dupe for the Nars Orgasm, I like this one MUCH better. The Orgasm is way too glittery on my aging complexion. The only negative I would have to say is the packaging - it's kind of cute, but no one uses that stiff crummy brush so I would rather have a more streamlined compact. I have NC30 medium Asian skin.

Lips -MILANI -Amore Matte Lip Creme

on 7/18/2018 3:04:00 AM


These are amazing! The pigmentation is very good and the color is vidid. They truly do last all day, better than other department store matte lips! I apply it in the morning and it stays on through the rest of the day. They are matte but not drying at all. I love these and at $8 each they are a steal.

Blush -MILANI -Baked Blush Rosa Romantica 13

on 7/16/2018 12:23:00 PM


As someone else mentioned, this is more of a blush topper or highlighter than it is a stand-alone blush. It is very pretty and flattering on my warm/neutral skin. Do not expect a lot of pigment payoff--this blush is all about the shine and reflective qualities.

Blush -MILANI -Rose Powder Blush - Romantic Rose

on 7/16/2018 12:21:00 PM


I have a lot of blushes, and this is one of my favorites as I consider it the most "natural" or neutral blush I own. My cheeks but better? I see why some reviewers say it's dry and powdery--possibly because I moisturize often and have oily skin, this is not an issue for me.

I don't think this is a blush you can layer on. I quickly sweep this over my cheeks and blend in.

I did not notice any smell. It's matte and a beautiful neutral shade for my warm-neutral skin.
