Hue Review: Milani Rose Powder Blush
I’ve heard tons of people rave about Milani products. Especially their Baked Blush formula because their shade Luminoso is a Pinterest dupe for NARS Orgasm. But their Rose Powder Blush isn’t really talked about that much. So I decided to pick up one of their shades to test out and report back why!
First of all, the packaging on these blushes are adorable. The pressed the powder literally to have the folds of a rose. It’s not embossed or raised. But the shape is literally in the form of a rose. So cute and sleek for drugstore packaging! These blushes used to be a pain to find- I could only find them in certain CVS stores. But now the whole brand is now available at Ulta! Anyways, these blushes retail for $9 which is about on par for the drugstore. The kicker is that this blush only comes in 4 shades. Yup, only four! I picked up mine in the shade Tea Rose which is a light dusty rose shade. These shades are definitely matte. But there is a certain sheen they are applied on the cheeks!
It really is such a shame that this blush only comes in 4 shades because the formula really is great. It’s a nice smooth powder with great pigment. You don’t really need to build it up and you don’t have to be overly cautious about putting too much on your brush. There’s some blushes where you literally can apply too much just by tapping into the product. This formula is a nice happy medium though! It’s easy to blend the the shades they do have really are pretty and pretty versatile for everyday use. I would love to see some deeper shades and a more colorful range for those who like to experiment with blush. But these are really just as great as the Baked Blush formula but these are matte which I prefer.
So I definitely recommend these blushes- if you can find a shade that you like. They are a solid matte blush formula. And the packaging is sleek which is great if you tend to be on the go. I can’t really rave about these though because the shade range is so small that it might be hard for everyone across the skin tone spectrum to find something they love.
