I always wanted to try one of the Milani baked blushes. They look gorgeous and marbled in the packaging but I was curious about the actual pigmentation. I've been using this blush every day for the past month and I must say I love it! Its a beautiful coral-candy pink on the cheeks. It gives a lovely sheen to the cheeks, not too shimmery, just the perfect amount of glowy color. If you're looking for a cheap, gorgeous blush option you HAVE to check this out!

i've always wanted to try Nar's "Orgasm" blush, but it is so pricey and I don't live near a sephora. after doing some research, this blush seemed to be a good dupe and I found myself giving in and purchasing it. I'm really glad I did. the color is absolutely gorgeous and it blends so smoothly on my skin! I don't think that this color would appear on dark skin tones, however, but I could be wrong. Im mac nc25 for reference. I use this blush just about everyday, it is my new favorite; i absolutely adore and recommend it.

I really like this blush, it gives my skin a warm peachy tint and is great for the spring and upcoming warm weather. It looks super shimmery in the pan, but it doesn't seem to transfer onto the skin. It is not too sheer and not super pigmented. My favorite at the moment paired with macs cream highlighter in pearl. My one complaint is that it's kind of annoying to open, but it doesn't change my mind about the product itself.

(Click continued to see my swatches.) As with many other women out there I love my name brands, but times are a tough (recessionista!) and many drugstore products are actually quite comparable to their high end counterparts. I was at my local CVS today and decided to try out the Milani Baked Powder Blush in Luminoso after reading some really great reviews online on Milani. And I am quite impressed! I've seen Luminoso being compared to NARS Orgasm. I would say it's a little more peach/natural color, whereas NARS Orgasm is more pink, still natural, but more doll-like. I love how blendable it is and how I can layer it and layer it on without it looking cakey.
This is how it looks like in the pan, peach w/ a touch of pink and gold.
This is how it looks on my NC40/42 skin. Pink when swatched, but more peach/natural when blended. (Anything will look a bronzy on my naturally tanned skin.) What I love most is there isn't too much glitter, which is perfect under the fluorescent lights of the hospital (where I work).
I can also see this looking really great on fairer skinned girls, or any colored girl. Milani is known for it's pigmented products, and Luminoso stays true to that reputation, which is great for us tanner/darker gals. Keep in mind that Milani Baked Powder Blushes is about $7.49 in drugstores, and comes in a 0.12 oz (3.5 g) package. If you compare this to MAC Powder blushes, which is now $20 for 0.21 oz (6 g) it's not ahuge saving. But every dollar counts! And many drug stores often have BOGO sales.
Overall, I would describe it as a natural, luminous (hehe), peach flush with a hint of pink.

Here's another blush that's been touted as being a "dupe" for Nars Orgasm. In all reality, it is not an exact clone of Nars Orgasm (nor are all of the other blushes that are mentioned as being "dupes" either). However, it is still a very gorgeous blush to own nevertheless!
If you want the REAL thing, I highly suggest getting Nars Orgasm. If not, there are lots of other beautiful blushes out there to choose from (like this one) of course. And, with the Milani blushes, you certainly will be getting great quality, but at a much cheaper price.
I use both high end and lower end makeup products. Therefore, using MAC, Nars, Milani, and even Maybellline, etc., products are all perfectly fine for me.
Luminoso has a stunning, very peachy coloring to it. It also has a very slight pink undertone to it as well. It does have more of a satiny finish to it versus shimmer (in my opinion). And, it gives such a wonderful glow to my cheeks everytime that I wear it.
If you want to fake having glowing skin, this is the perfect product for you. You can not only apply it to the top of your cheeks, but also on each temple (forehead area), and on your chin too. It will give you a natural glow in all of the right places, if you choose to apply it in such ways.
And, it is perfect for use both day or night.

I'm asian and I have VERY pale skin compared to others. This blush is simply amazing because i just need a little bit of it and it will totally turn my cheeks into this rosy peachy colour. So natural looking! I love this <3

I really didn't like this compared to NARS Orgasm. The color looks so pretty in the compact but it's really just a powdery glittery dusty blush. It does not compare to NARS in texture at all. It's hard to apply and it's not very pigmented or smooth, it's worth it's price but do not buy it expecting a higher end finish. I bought it to save money but ended up just rebuying Orgasm.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Tan Hair: Black, Wavy, Coarse Eyes: Black
Absolutely wonderful product. Reference: in MAC I'm about NC40 but not as yellow, med-tan Indian skin.
- PRICE: For barely $10 CAD, you get a great value for money.
- PRODUCT: Excellent everyday colour, a warm pinky-peach with gold shimmer, good lasting power, and finely milled enough that it blends well. I realize that others here have said the glitter is too chunky, but on me, for some reason, it doesn't show up too brightly or glittery...it's possible that it blends in better because of my skintone. I was looking for a peach tone blush and this works great. It is very hard for me to overdo this because it's a similar shade to my skin, just with a bit of peachy-gold tone. I was also afraid it was too similar to my MAC Warm Soul but on comparison, Warm Soul is really more of a mauve, with blue undertones, and fine gold shimmer. Swatched out they actually look similar but I know the Warm Soul shows up pinker on me than peach, so I'm good!
- PACKAGING: I'll admit I'm a little less than impressed with the cheap-looking gold accented case, but hey, it's $10. Cute idea with the mirror and brush but the blush part was so heavy that when I tilted it to open up the mirror (on the base of the blush), the blush sort of snapped into the lid, and I was concerned about it shedding powder all over with the impact. The brush is a flat half-moon shape with stiff bristles that don't pick up much. I'll leave it in the compact but won't be using it much as I already have a full-size blush brush of good quality.
- VERDICT: excellent value for a very reasonable price, lovely peach-pink colour, very wearable on medium-tan skin.

This blush is really easy to apply and it has the perfect amount of shimmer for my personal taste. However, the color looked ORANGE! I have dark hair and light skin and this did not fly. I think this color will look great on olive skin so I'm keeping it and looking forward to wearing it during summer.

NOT a dupe for Nars Orgasm as widely touted on the web. I have owned both, and while the color is basically the same, the gold glitter/shimmer of Orgasm is MUCH finer then that of the Milani. Orgasm comes off as a shimmer, but Milani looks like CHUNKY glitter. If you like this, then great, but too much for me. I first bought the Milani because of the great reviews, then a friend gave me Orgasm (the color was wrong for her). After using the Orgasm, I gave my Milani blush away. I generally don't use HE brands because I can usually find something that I like just as well at the drugstore, but in this case, Nars Orgasm is definitely worth the extra $.

I absolutely love this blush. Blush has to be my favorite makeup product so me using this blush for two months straight says a lot. It is the most beautiful peachy slightly orange color, but looks so amazing. I guess I would call it a natural looking glow. Although it has great pigmentation the lasting power on my oily cheeks is not so great. Overall really worth having in your collection.

After seeing reviews, I had to try it for myself. This color is so aaamazing, it's undescribable. It goes on me a light orange. I'm currently going thru an orange phase & well, this shit is bomb.Miliani is probably my 2nd favorite drugstore brand, wnw being the first. This is a MUST TRY. Enjoy ladies

This is a lovely soft peach color on my older and somewhat dry skin. I use it over a cream foundation and a light sweep of my blush contour brush is all I need. Without a primer (which I never bother to use) is has lasted nine hours on me with no touch up or setting powder. I don't really see glitter or shimmer. Maybe it is very subtle but it is not showing up on me, thank goodness. I think someone with a much oiler skin than mine might not get this lasting power. It looks like you are getting a bigger amount of blush than you actually are because,under the cake, there is one of those little useless brushes. I will probably never need it because this stuff really lasted on me, but I can see how it would be useful for a touch up. The compact is a little bulky and very cheap looking. I think it would soon be ratty looking if it bumbled around in my purse or makeup bag for long. I gave the packaging quality only two lippies because of this. It is a drugstore brand and a cheap one at that so I guess this is what you can expect. The product is excellent however, I reach for this over my Nars blushes every time.

This doesn't show up that much me even if i try addingmore and im pretty fair. I already had to reapply it three times.

I love the color and it lasted about 4 hours.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Black
This blush is absolutely gorgeous. In my opinion is the best one out all th baked blushes. It's very pigmented and is not a glitter bomb. The perfect peach I have found for my medium skin tone.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Very Dry, Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Black
Oh my is all I have to say I love this blush. It's a beautiful peach colour and it's so pigmented and easy to blend. It's got a nice sheen to it. The best part is it's a nice peach colour for medium to tan skintones. For reference i'm NC35. This is what I wanted MAC peaches blush to be. Can't wait to try some other colours. For all you Canadian girls I live in Toronto and I found this at Loblaws superstore. But they only carry 3 of the blushes Luminoso, rose d oro and dolce pink or at least the store I went to. It was $9.99. I recommend this blush it's gorgeous.

Great but not for me. I have fair olive skin, medium brown hair and hazel/brown green eyes and this was too dark and bright. It was very hard to apply even with a decent blush brush and a very light hand. It was just too fake looking and noticeable. I did like the color and have seen similar looking great on others with darker complexions. I did also think the quality was good for the price.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Medium, Warm Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Green
On my skin Luminoso is a peachy pink with a light shimmer. It's really pretty and is pigmented nicely. It doesn't break my cheeks out which MAC blush does to me for some reason. I would repurchase it for sure. The shiney gold compact is cute too.
