Purchased Luminoso solely because of all the rave reviews here.I just had to see what I was missing out on.
I do see what the hype is about. I love the color and the pigmentation is wonderful in that only one dip of a blush brush is all that is needed to give a flush of color.
So, why the 3 stars? Sadly, the glitter in the product does not complement my mature skin at all. If I had younger skin, I would probably give this blush 5 stars. Maybe one day Milani will make a matte version. I can only hope.
this is a tad too pastel/orange for my coloring, but still a very pretty color. at first glance it looks it would go on like a frosty nightmare, but actually the finish is the best thing about it. it has a slight sheen to it, but it's very subtle. it's not too shiny/glittery, nor is completely matte, so the effect looks natural. it's finely milled, so i use it as eyeshadow sometimes.
For reference: nc25-30, warm & yellow
In my opinion, wet n' wild and milani make the best drugstore blushes. Very affordable and awesome pigmentation. I own this and fantastic Mauve.
This blush is a gorgeous pinky/peach color that has shimmer, but doesn't make your cheeks looks ridiculously shiny. I like applying this on the apple of my cheeks. Color looks great when you want a hint of color without taking away from eye or lip makeup.
Definitely would repurchase!
This blush has a very high review compared to most and it is for a good reason. I have been using Nars Orgasm blush for ten years faithfully and this is even better. It is very high quality and shows up very evenly on my skin and it lasts all day and night! Sometimes with inexpensive blushes it is hard to get the color payoff and it is sometimes can make skin look blotchy. All these wonderful reviews can't be wrong. Try it out it is about 7 bucks and well worth it.
I love this blush! I heard rave reviews about the color of this blush, but the display at the local CVS was always out (they had the wrong color in the Luminoso slot)! I asked my friend who worked there to make sure they had it on reorder and they haven't kept it in stock since! This blush is perfectly pigmented (not too bright) and shimmery and works perfectly on my fair skin. I use this blush every day! I have had it for a year and haven't even made it through to the pan yet, it is still round on top! This is such a lovely color and it works on many skin tones, it is supposedly a dupe for NARS blushes but I don't own them to test the color. The texture is smooth and not too soft, it doesn't pulverize when you dip your brush in the pan. You can build up the color too if you want a more intense color! If you're looking for a great, summery blush with a hint of shimmer, I would recommend this blush to you! There are also three or so other colors in the Milani baked blushes which I haven't tried yet but I hear they are equally awesome, but I will definitely keep repurchasing Luminoso!
I LOVE this blush! I personally am not a fan of highly pigmented blushes, I prefer a natural looking, sheer wash of color, & a sheen, but not glitter & sparkle. My favorite blushes tend to always get discontinued, & I was having a really hard time finding something that met all my criteria-had to be a peachy-pink, sheer but with the option of being buildable, and a sheen, but a subtle sheen, and no bits of glitter. I'd bought so many blushes that I didn't like & finally tried this one, & it is everything I was looking for! This is the type of product I could see working on just about anyone too.
Excellent blusher! The colour is beautiful. It is a light/medium peachy pink with a hint of shimmer which creates a beautiful natural looking highlight across your cheek which last all day. This blusher is also very cheap which is amazing considering the quality.
I ADORE this blush!!!! I am fair skinned with naturally pink/red face and acne scarring. So it's hard to find a blush that doesn't emphasize this less than desirable facial trait. :) the peach tinge in this blush is perfect because it's a different hue. I was at first deterred by the visible glitter but when it's smoothed on the skin it is more shimmery without being over the top. I definitely think this is a very classy blush.
Decent color (very peach), more matte than some of the others. Less shimmer which is a plus! I use it for everyday - more of a work color than a going out color. I'd purchase more of the matte colors in the collection. I hear good things about the different Milani products.
