I bought this mainly because emilynoel on youtube raved about how beautiful this blush is. This line is not available locally and I had to purchase this from cherry culture and waited about a month before it arrived. The color is really gorgeous, flat out coral with swirls of orange. but what I DONT LIKE about it is the Glitter! It has flecks of glitters not pearly sheen, not subtle shimmer or pearly glow but MAJOR WHAMMY SILVER GLITTER. And like a reviewer below me stated, the glitter when swatched on my wrist falls off (as it is drier than my face) and what is left is the beautiful coral shade with no sheen or shimmer, but on my face i look like a silver disco ball, not a pretty sight. A little disappointed actually as this was a major lemming for me. Should have known that what works for others may not necessarily work for me. SIGH~~~. The longevity of this blush is actually pretty good. After 12-14 hours of applying make up, the color is still very visible and has not faded. The pigmentation of the blush is also very very good, too good to the point that you only really need one soft swirl of the blush or else you'd end up looking like a clown-A light hand is the key in applying this blush. The packaging is tacky-very flimsy and cheap looking as with all milani's packaging. This would have been a great blush had it not have flecks of glitters in it. If you actually like glitter then this maybe your cup of tea.
I was in two minds when buying this blush, wary because of the mixed reviews here but curious because of the rave reviews from Emilynoel on YouTube. I ended up purchasing because it was cheap during a CherryCulture sale.
True to all the other reviews this stuff is WAY too glittery, also true the colour is beautiful. I've come to the conclusion that there's definitely a trick to this - when swatching it on my arm where the skin is dry the glitter just falls off and all you're left with is the gorgeous colour. Putting it on my oily/combination skinned face the glitter just sticks like crazy and looks awful, even after tapping my brush vigourously prior to applying onto a powdered face.
So if you're a dry skinned girl, you're in luck with this product - I think you'll like it, but if you have oily or combo skin take care with applying - tap off the excess glitter, ensure your cheeks are well powdered and the surface is nice and dry then work a small amount of the product and blend well to ensure further glitter falloff.
With regards to the packaging, it's not that bad, for such an inexpensive product it's fine, it stays shut in my make up bag, protects the product, opens without any hassle when I want it to. Although, I wouldn't go dropping it onto any hard floors and I don't use the little brush that it comes with but meh no biggie there.
I will finish what I have because the colour is truly lovely, once you get past the glitter it's pure warm coral pigment, with no extra shimmer, but I won't buy this again because personally there's got to be a similar colour without the glitter hassle out there for me somewhere.
Bought this for about $10 CAD at my local walmart. This was the first time I had seen milani in my area so I was intrigued. The pigmentation on this blush is great, it is a beautiful pink-coral color. However it is so glittery!!!! I don't understand why all the baked blushes have so much glitter in them!
I have only worn this a couple time since I've gotten it, I love the color I just wish it wasn't so full of glitter :(
This blush is beautiful a bright coral with great pigmentation.It goes on easily and has a nice staying power.
The only down side is that it has alot of glitter that deposits on you face and I just don't like that look on my skin I prefer the peach one that just left a nice sheen on your face.
Nice blush, lovely colour, great pigmentation. You really need to apply this with a soft hand when you are light skinned. The silver glitter is a bit chunky, but just a few particles end up on your cheeks, so no problem there. The packaging appears a bit flimsy to me. The brush is way to harsh for the soft texture of this blush. I use a soft angled kabuki. I would not repurchase because this blush is going to last for a lifetime haha.
Very beautiful, pink/peachy coral blush. A perfect coral. Great pigmentation and staying power. I absolutely love this shade and would definitely re-purchase! For ref, I have a golden-tan skin tone.
I actually had to go on eBay to find this blush. The Milani Corallina (pictured here on MUA) with the flecks of good baked into it, could not be found in stores..I checked several Milani stations. For some reason, the blush was there (same name) but was packaged differently and did not have the flecks of gold in it, just the blush color alone. Is the one with the flecks of gold now discontinued or a limited edition? I don't know, but I had to have it. So, I received it in the mail today. Fantastic color on my skin! Love love love it and can't wait to wear it, especially this summer. I am hoping I will be able to find this Corallina again...or that Milani will once again have it available in stores. If anyone knows, please let me know. Thank you, beauties!
I really enjoy this blush, it has good pigmentation, decent staying power, and the color is very fun. It has a good amount of shimmer in it (as do most of these blushes...) so people who are not fond of shimmer beware. I don't find it overwhelming though. My only issue with this blush is the packaging kind of drives me insane. It's nice enough but every single time I open it the little mini brush holder/mirror that is located underneath the blush pan falls open. Other than that, love it and think it's great quality for the price and is definitely comparable to MAC baked blushes.
Wow, this blush is pigmented! Especially for a baked blush, I've grown up with the Bourjois blushes and they are definitely different from these.
I've recieved this in a swap and it was really scary in the pan, a bright bright coral pink with glitters.
I thought I couldn't pull it off because I'm NW15 in winter and not in my twenties anymore, but I've used it today to try and I LOVE it! With a light hand anyone can pull this off. For reference: I've used a MAC 188 to apply.
Together with a soft brown eye make up and soft peach lips this made the whole look much more fresh.
It gives a glow and it's definitely not too warm for my cool complexion. It's no glitterbomb either, meaning the glitters don't end up all over my face, thankfully.
I'd thought it would be suitable for me only in the summer (when I'm a bit tanned) but i think I'll be using this a lot this winter to brighten my complexion. Lovely shade!!
This blush is so beautiful, I bought corallina, rose d'oro, and red vino. These are so pigmented and they are comparable to mac's baked products, I love it and the price is great :)
