I. Wear. It. Everyday. It's beautiful. Perfect name, as it is the exact combination of medium rose and gold. The color payoff is phenomenal for the price. I have orange/golden undertones and this gives me a such an almost-natural "blush". The gold in it is not at all glittery but rather a finely milled gleam. I'd been forever sad that I missed out on MAC's "Stereo Rose"...until I found this girl. MAC who?
Gorgeous. Buy it.

I'm really not feeling this product so much. This a coppery rose baked blush. For starters, I think there is some chunky glitter in this. Secondly, this is not buildable. I am medium brown and this a very strong shade for my skintone. It is very hard blush to blend out and the glitter spreads quickly over other areas on the face. It needs to be worked into the skin and this is not time effective especially before work.

This blush is not my taste. It is a bit "showy" and if you like your cheeks to be the highlight of your face this may be good for you. I just think that this blush is not work appropriate, its hard to put a quick look together with this and just requires too much planning.

The packaging is bulky too which does not help :(

I am on the fence about this product. Yes, it's pretty, both on the pan and on the skin. However, I'm not sure if I really think it's flattering on me (NC25 Asian).

In the pan, it's a gorgeous, bronze-y pink dome with gold veins inlaid into it. On my skin, it looks like a unique, deep, shimmery bronzy-peach sort of color. There is enough of a pink undertone and (very fine) gold shimmer to make it interesting and 'glowy', but I think the bronze aspect is too strong on me, since I am already very warm-skinned. The first time I wore this, someone asked me if that was blush or bronzer on my cheeks. :( If you're a fan of bronzers, you'd definitely like this blush, but to everyone else, I'd apply this with a very light hand and/or a very soft brush! Or better yet, you can layer this very lightly on top of your other blushes to give them more warmth.

The staying power is good but not great for a DS blush, about a few hours on my oily skin. Keep that in mind in case you reach for this blush for a long day.

This is my first Milani purchase and I am in love! I think this is my new favourite blush. The colour is really beautiful and intriguing and I would say it's a really close dupe for Mac's Stereo Rose MSF however I find it's a tad more pink which I guess is where the "Rose" would come in. But I do really love this! It is super pigmented, rich, and goes onto the skin nicely. It doesn't feel dry or flakey. Can't beat the price either, it's cheaper than any of the Mac/Benefit/Tarte/Nars blushes that I own and I find myself reaching for this one more often. My only complaint would be the packaging. I don't like how the blush portion flips up to reveal a mirror and brush (which is terrible and useless) underneath it. But it's definitely something I can deal with for the price and the colour!

Looks like I'm off to the drugstore to buy this in Luminoso and Corallina!

Are you looking for a summer blush? Are you in love with orangey corals? Don't mind having a bit of a sheen to your cheeks? Get this blush. Rumor has it that it's a dupe for MAC's Stereo Rose MSF. To be honest, I have no idea; I've never seen Stereo Rose outside of Internet swatches. What I can say for sure: Rose D'Oro is a glowing, warm shade of rich orange-touched coral with a good handful of gold thrown into the mix. Not really "rose gold" in my eyes, as the orange tones are predominate. Spritz some water from a spray bottle or use a damp brush to apply to your cheeks, blend out the edges, and it'll last through the whole work day. My neutral skin doesn't always take to orange-tinged things very well, but it loves Rose D'Oro during these hot months! The packaging is bulky and I hate the hidden bush compartment (the circular shape makes it impractical to turn into a freestyle palette--grr!), but it's functional and mine hasn't broken yet. I do hate the stupid included brush--so small and scratchy.

The rose d'oro shade is nice and pigmented (the nicest out if the 3 I tried) and has a lovely shimmery finish, however these do NOT compare to Nars blushes in texture or quality! Nars blushes have such subtle sheen and highlight that give you a completely natural glow. Milani is maybe less finely milled, and has more noticeable individual bits of glitter. not in love enough to re-purchase. Also - absolutely loathe the packaging which immediately broke after one use, so now it doesn't have a cover.

I'M. IN. LOVE. I had sworn off blush on more than one occasion in my makeup-obsessed life. For a long time I had been wearing skin luminizers and bronzers exclusively because every blush I thought I would love, I eventually grew tired of very quickly. It's happened too many times, most recently with Cargo's Echo Beach. Then I fell in love with Laura Gellar's baked beauty products last summer which made me quite curious about what other baked blushes were out there. That's when I heard about the Milani baked line and now I know I've found my blush soulmate!! Milani Baked Blushes are the best blushes period. This one is my favorite! Rose D'oro gives me the most glowy, corally, golden-pink cheeks I've ever had. I feel gorgeous when I have it on! The gold veining in all their blushes is really the key to what makes them look so fantastic. I can no longer live without this. I have to buy back-ups because the thought of not having this in my arsenal would be a nightmare. The packaging looks fantastic with the gold. Very YSL, but it does feel flimsy. I really don't mind that because it's the product inside that I care about and the product inside is perfection. It goes on smooth and suits my warm skin tone amazingly well! The price is a dream, Only $8! That's a fraction of what a Laura Gellar will cost you. I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone looking for a blush. Baked is the way to go.

Milani Baked Blush in Rose D'Oro is a beautiful rose with coral leanings and gold veining. It gives my NC35 skin a beautiful, healthy flush. I don't even need to use a highlight with this blush because of the subtle sheen it gives my cheeks. It has great colour pay-off and is best used with a light hand.

The packaging is a little bit clunky and loud for my liking but I can live with it. I don't use the included brush but it is nice they included one.

This was a great addition to my small blush collection! Love it!
