USD $7.49. The color is not a dupe for NARS Orgasm. Luminoso is a little more matte, and more brick/brown than peach. On my very fair MAC NC20/C2 skin, this looks like brick orange and extremely unflattering. If the tone works for you, awesome buy as the color is very pigmented (so you need very little product), the texture is pretty fine, and there is a lot of product for the money. Unlike other reviewers, I didn't see any shimmer when I put it on. Also you need a very light hand to layer it on - as mentioned, the product is very pigmented so it's very easy to overdo the blush. The case is flimsy, super-easy to break, and really big. Definitely don't need the brush compartment or the useless brush that comes with it.

Not a dupe for the Benefit Coralista, but nonetheless a beautiful color for a cheap price.

Luminoso is a slightly more pigmented blush with chunkier sparkles in it. Coralista feels and looks like a highlight more than a blush. In the packaging both products look almost identical, however when you swatch the color difference is evident.

I personally have a problem with blushes in that they seem to highlight my blemishes and I had that problem with this blush. I applied it after I concealed and powdered my face and when I applied the blush it seems to make the few red blemishes on my face more prominent.

I dropped it once and the top lid broke off to my disappointment. The brush that came with this blush was useless to me so I just tossed it. I usually toss most of the brushes that come with products anyway.

It didn't really work for me, but I know many people that throughly enjoy it so I believe it is worth a try.

I've tried over the years many blushes, but it wasn't until I tried this blush that I finally was able to say I found the perfect color. Now I'm just crossing my fingers, and hoping they never discontinue this wonderful blush.

I recently purchased this blush, based on the good reviews, only to find out that many of the positive reviews were on a previous formula... So please bear this in mind, as I am reviewing the new formula or format.

It is a corally-orange baked blush with tons of shimmer/glitter, although the glitter doesn't look to obvious when buffed into the skin. It is a "happy summer color" that adds a nice pop on your cheeks. This must look great with a bit of a tan.

I'm not too impressed by the packaging, although it's not the worst I've come across, especially for a drugstore blush. The price is quite affordable, as with all Milani products.

I don't think that the color is too unique, and I already own a ton of blushes that better suit my complexion, therefore I've answered "no" to the question If you ran out or lost this product would you buy it again? Although I don't think by any means that this is a bad product: I'm actually giving it 4 stars!

This just didn't look good on me. Its a beautiful color, but on my skin it just showed as too orangey. Didn't feel like it looked natural and I like my blush to look really really natural. I will say that it has good pigment and excellent staying power because once it was on it really wouldn't budge. I know because I tried-lol-tried to tone it down, even wiping furiously with my hands, but nope it was there to stay. I still gave it a 3 because its so pretty and good quality im going to try it again in the summer if perchance I develop a bit of a tan, maybe itll look better. But I wouldn't say this works on ALL skin tones because it didn't work on mine

I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!! I don't normally give 5 stars on much, unless it's absolutley worth it. I love everything about Milani products, by far, my favorite drugstore brand, prettiest packaging, I just can't even! Okay, on with the quality, it is quite pigmented, very easy to blend out, and just beautiful on every skin tone. I am very cool toned, very pale, and this peachy looking color just looks so beautiful. It is quite cheap for the amount of product, you get a lot, and it has a tiny mirror and brush underneath (I never use the brushes, but it's nice that it has a mirror) I absolutley reccommend this to anyone who is a blush fanatic! You can't beat the price, just like around $5. I have every single blush in the Milani baked blush line, and I would say that Luminoso and Rose d'oro is my absolute favorite two!

This is really a beautiful blush. I am nc30-35 with neutral undertone and it's the prefect blush. The packaging could be less bulky but doesn't matter because I don't touch up on my blush so I leave it at home. Try it. It's worth the hype !

Lovely peachy tone that isn't too orange or pink. It's not glittery or shimmery, so I add a bit of highlighter if I want to achieve that kind of look. A little goes a long way and the color looks fresh for hours.

I was so excited to get this blush in the post. I'm in Australia and we can't get Milani here but after reading eight million raving reviews I had to try it. And it is cheap that's for sure.
But.....it doesn't look great on me. I'm quite fair, not super pale but pretty fair with blue eyes and I just find this looks too orangey in me. I was so disappointed the first time I tried it. I've persisted since then as I keep thinking "surely I must be doing it wrong??!!" But each time it just doesn't do my face any favours. Gutting.
It's not that the blush isn't nice - it's a beautiful-looking blush - but it's just that it doesn't look nice on me. I might pass this on to my sister who has lovely golden tanned skin; I have a feeling it would look epic on her.
