I love this blush. This is literally a quarter of the price of Nars Orgasm.
Why I liked it. Beautiful peachy-pink color with golden shimmer, quite pigmented, gives a nice glow and shine
Cons: Not a big fan of the packaging
Loved this product and it was very affordable!

Quite simply, this is pretty. Very natural, gorgeous color. "Luminous" is an apt name--it gives you this nice glow, like the pink on your cheeks after you've been in the sun all day. One compact lasts quite a while as well, especially if you only wear it in the spring/summer.
Since everybody seems to love this product, I'll list the few things I DON'T like about it. 1-It does have some shimmer which I'm not crazy about, but for summertime it fits the mood. 2-It can be a tad bit pink. I have fair olive skin and usually buy yellow-based foundation, and this is as pink as I can go without looking clownish. 3-The packaging is really stupid. It comes in this bulky case that has an extra compartment for a mirror and a tiny stupid little brush that I lost almost immediately. However, the compact is pretty durable, and the quality of the actual blush is worth the awkward packaging.
If you've been reading positive reviews and are thinking of trying this, DO IT. I've seen SO many women of all skin tones wear it and it looks great on almost all of them.

Wow, this blush is amazing. It's everything I look for in a blush, the colour is so girly and cute and it's very long-lasting. it's a perfect dupe for Nars Orgasm. I've never owned this blush, but I've tried it in a store.
Overall, I think this blush is worth the buy. It makes my face look slimmer and it has a subtle glow. I see no reason not to buy it.

Price is very reasonable! Ten to twenty dollars cheaper than the big names out there. Applies very nicely with a darkish pink tint. Overalls great product with great value

I love this blush and just recently went to Sephora to try on Nars Orgasm - exactly the same as Luminous -201! So for less than $10 I would choose Milani over and over again. Unfortunately I think Milani discontinued it because I haven't seen it in stores. They have a new line of blush - baked. And their Baked Blush Luminoso is not the same because its more coral.

Just like Orgasm, this just didn't work for me. Maybe I've been spoiled by Illamasqua, NARS, Tom Ford, etc, but this just wasn't pigmented enough. I really had to work to get this blush to somewhat show up, once it did it was unflattering. The shimmer just awkwardly sits on my skin. Gold isn't the best shade either. I will try to swap this away, if not its going in the trash. I will not repurchase.

This blush is more like a highlighter for me because of my skintone. But I still appreciate what this product does. The formula is very smooth, silky and it applies like a dream. The pink peach shade has a golden sheen/undertone. Blushes that are too light for us brown girls tend to appear ashy on the skin but this doesnt. It gives the skin a golden luminousity with a peach tone which makes it look more natural. No chunky glitter here.
The packaging is a bit clunky but I could live with it because I really love the product inside the packaging way more.

This is my HG blush. I haven't worn any other blush since I purchased this! I got it because all the reviews that it was a dupe for NARS Orgasm. Well, I don't buy he makeup. I'm strictly a drugstore gal, so I'm always on the lookout for dupes.
I LOVE this blush! It's blendable, the color I think is the kind that would look good on just about anyone, it's got a hint of shimmer (which I like). I don't use the included brush, but rather, apply with my E.L.F. studio blush brush.
My makeup doesn't look right without my Milani Luminous blush!

This is a very nice blush. It is the same in color as the Luminoso Baked Blush, but without the massive amount of sparkle. The color is a nice pinky peach, very natural for fair to medium skin tones, highly pigmented. I like the highlighter effect of sparkles of the bake blush version, but I use this a lot too since it does look more natural not to sparkle.

This blush has a nice color, blends into the face well, and lasts all day. Unfortunately, it's really too light on me to be a blush, and I don't use highlighters on my oily face much, so I swapped this away.

I love this blush, it is my favorite go-to for everyday looks. I am sad it is no longer sold in stores.

Love this..........very similiar to NARS Orgasm..only thing I don't love is the plastic cheapy packaging but I love it and will purchase again. The color lasts and is really gorgeous

Milani Luminous has been my HG blush since I was sixteen. I have seen it on many skin tones and it always looks fabulous. Personally, the skin on my face tends to be fair, and this has a perfect natural pink look. It looks like actual sun-kissed, blushing cheeks. I love the gold shimmer, it adds warmth. This spreads nicely and you don't need much product at all to create lovely cheeks. The packaging is also very nice, and this is inexpensive. I love it and recommend it to everyone.

It is such an absolutely gorgeous blush to have! Even though this blush has been discotinued from being carried in Walgreens, CVS, etc., anymore, there are still places that you can still purchase it from such as ebay, beautyjoint, and cherryculture.
Now, this blush has been touted by others as a "dupe" for Nars Orgasm. Nars Orgasm and Milani Luminous blushes are not exact duplicates of each other. Nars Orgasm goes on a bit more on the corally-pink side, while Milani Luminous goes on a bit more on the peachy-pink side instead.
Milani's Luminous is a gorgeous, true pink blush with a sight peachy undertone to it. Also, it does have a bit of shimmer to it as well. And, each time that I wear it, it really aids in give my complexion this nice pick-me-up.
Whether you own Nars Orgasm or not, I would highly recommend picking up this blush. It is definitely worth it (in my honest opinion). It is great for wearing all year round.

Yes, I will purchase this until the end of time. One of my all-time favorite blushes.
I loved NARS Orgasm with my pale skin and bright red hair, and I still do, but I hardly ever reach for it anymore because I am loving this so much instead. The two are *super* similar, almost identical, but I notice two differences:
1.) Orgasm is more glittery, while Luminous just has a soft sheen, and
2.) Orgasm is ever so slightly more "hot pink" looking on me, while Luminous is ever so slightly peachier, but still that perfect pink-peach balance.
Luminous gives the face such a nice glow; it's very aptly named. The color is practically perfect for any makeup look and would look great on any complexion, and can be swept on sheerly or built up easily, which I love as it's nice to be able to easily control the intensity. It goes on very smoothly, not patchy or anything at all.
I love the sheen that it gives; it will give you a subtle highlight on your cheeks. I prefer a more intense highlight, so I either use an MSF on top of it or something like Benefit Highbeam/Moonbeam, a MAC cream color base, etc..
Sometimes I'll just sweep on some Highbeam and then lightly tap my brush with Luminous on top. Easy and looks great.
I love to use a subtle contour and then pop this on the apples of the cheeks.
Really great blush, great price, readily available - go get it already!

I bought this blush along with Sweet Rose for only $2.99 at walgreens, and have to say that these are amazing blushes, as good or better than my high end blushes! Luminous is very similar to nars orgasm even though it looks darker in the pan. When I applied both of them on my cheeks the color was almost identical! I ended up giving my nars orgasm blush ro a friend because I found myself wearing this blush more often!! I highly recommend this!

I have both the minerals and original and they are both very pretty. I love the nice glow with a bit of shimmer it has. i will be buying this again.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Love this !It gives this very bright peachy look to the skin I love this blush as a highlight and on my pale skin it just looks amazing.It just is sort of see through so I find that it should go over another blush.Doing this gives more bland blushes a great pop.
I definitely recommend you give this blush a whirl for how cheep it is right now.
Only downer can be a little hard to open.
