I just HAD to share these three blushes I picked up from Milani recently! They're gorgeous, Spring-y and instantly some of my favourite blushes! 

Milani isn't a brand we see a lot of over here in the UK, but recently Amazon has starting stocking them (wahoo!), so I had to get my hands on a few bits. 

The packaging of Milani products is great. It feels closer to high end offerings as it's almost a bit heavy and bulky which actually I find pretty useful in products which have a tendency to smash. You can also see the blushes through the lids, which is great when you one too many blushes stashed away.

The formula of all of the blushes I have tried from Milani has been fantastic. Creamy, pigmented, long-lasting. I genuinely can't fault them. 

I picked up three shades to add a Spring-y boost to my blush collection. First up is the Illuminating Face Powder in 03 Beauty's Touch and if this post sways you towards purchasing even one of these blushers, then PLEASE let it be this one. This is perfect for adding a natural glow on minimal make-up days (which is what hot weather is all about, right?) It has a hint of shimmer, but nothing obvious... just beautiful, natural, glowy goodness. 

Secondly I picked up the Powder Blush in 08 Tea Rose which seems to have sold out (boo!) but is available (at a much higher price...) from the seller I've linked. Okay, so maybe I just bought this because it was in the shape of a Rose. Just maybe. But the formula of these is is great (it looks kinda patchy in the swatches... it actually glides on beautifully). To be honest, it's not my favourite colour - but I have just spotted a the coral version Coral Cove and it's already in my basket... 

Finally, I picked up the Baked Powder Blush in Coralina. I already had one of their baked blushers, so I knew they were good. They also have a little brush hidden underneath which is perfect for on-the-go blush top ups (that's if you even need it...). I would say they aren't dissimilar to some of the Mac offerings... They do, however, pack some serious shimmer in so steer away if that isn't your bag. 

You can pick the Milani blushers up for around £5-6 on Amazon (they prices seem to fluctuate a lot, based on demand I suppose!) but they're an absolute steal for what you get!

Let me know if you've tried anything from Milani recently!



  1. I hear so much about Milani makeup, I just wish they were more readily available in the UK but that's the only downside I suppose!

  2. I really want to make a few milani purchases, they have a really lovely purple lipstick that I can't wait to get my hands on! and these blushes look beautiful, so much more expensive than what they actually are! Nice post :)
