Every now & then, the magical phrase ‘50% off’ makes lovely things happen. When I noticed that Beauty Crowd had a 50% off code for the entire site a few weeks back, I took the opportunity to get myself a few Milani products that I’ve had my eye on for a while.
Top – Milani Baked Blush in Delezioso
Bottom left – Milani Illuminating Face Powder in Beauty’s Touch
Bottom right – Milani Rose Powder Blush in Coral Cove.
It’s fab to be able to get hold of these easily; Milani is a drugstore brand that my favourite American beauty YouTubers have often mentioned over recent years. The fact that Beauty Crowd stocks the brand means that we can buy the products in the UK without the ludicrously high mark-up that you often see on Amazon – if you have to pay extra then it’s no longer a bargain drugstore gem!
The first thing to say about the products is LOOK HOW PRETTY!! Packaging & presentation isn’t everything of course but I do appreciate attention to detail. Between the floral patterns on the products themselves to the mirror and brush that are built-in with the Baked Blush, the little touches are lovely to see in a relatively inexpensive drugstore brand.
The shades look scary bright in the pan but as you see from the swatches, these blushes are pigmented enough while still being sheer. It’s a matter of taste of course but personally I prefer a blush to be sheer & buildable rather than so pigmented that a light swipe makes me look like Coco the Clown. The Baked Blush in particular has a lovely soft texture that feels much more expensive than it is. The Illuminating Powder is an interesting product that can be used as a bronzer or highlighter; a product to play with!
I’m really looking forward to test driving these blushes. I’ve never used a coral shade before but I’m going to be brave and dive in!
Do you use Milani products? What’s your favourite drugstore blush/highlighter?
