This is an initial review of my new Milani Blushes. I won't be reviewing it's wear on me as I haven't tried it long enough. I don't know exactly how much they cost coz my Mom paid for it (thanks Mom!) and it was bought at Costco in the US.
I got the blushes in Mai-Tai and Luminous (considered to be a Nars Orgasm dupe).
Luminous, no flash
Mai-Tai, no flash
The packaging could be better coz it feels a bit flimsy. There's a mirror and brush included at the bottom of the pan. The brush as usual, can be tossed away. I don't detect any scent so this is good for those who are sensitive to scented products.
Luminous, L, and Mai-Tai, R, with flash
Here are swatches of both blushes on my arm. I just swiped them ONCE! I can't believe how pigmented Mai-Tai is. They're not chalky either when I swiped them. Luminous is peachy pink with gold shimmer while Mai-Tai is a darker pink that is soft matte. I don't think Luminous would show up on me except as a highlight coz I am much darker now from all the swimming I've been doing. Mai-Tai, on the other hand, showed up beautifully on my cheeks on my initial try. It was so pretty!
Will show photos next time and a follow-up review. Will be out of town again this weekend up to next week so expect travel photos again soon. I am sure I will be nog-nog na by the time I get back.
I haven't worn any foundation for 2-3 months now except for the wedding in a previous post and maybe a few Sundays of going out. Most of the time it's just my derma's sunblock (Skin Within), a dusting of finishing powder and blush plus lip gloss. With tanned skin, I don't need the foundation, ha, ha!
See you soon!
