Sheer But Buildable Application with Milani Cosmetics Rose Powder Blush (Review)

By Candice Olivia

I was very excited to have the opportunity to review the Milani Rose Powder Blush collection, as I am completely obsessed with blush! When I opened the packaged I gasped and let out an audible “EEK!” The blushes were absolutely amazing. I couldn’t wait to pop the seal and see what they were all about.

The first thing that I noticed was the packaging, which was beyond beautiful. I really loved the rose imprint on each of the blushes. What also was amazing to me was the size of each blush. They are enormous. I immediately flipped them over to see how many ounces they were.

As Milani states on their website, these blushes are “gorgeous in the compact and even prettier on the cheeks”; they aren’t lying. The three (3) colors that I received were: Romantic Rose, Coral Cove and Tea Rose. At first swipe the blushes were highly pigmented, but still applied very sheer. You can build the coverage depending on your method of application. The fluffier the brush you use, the more sheer. The more dense the brush you use, the more color payout you will get. However, no matter which method of application you choose this blush is not streaky at all.

Here are a few key things to note about the blushes:

  • Retails for $8.49

  • 3 beautiful colors that can be worn on a range of complexions

  • .60 oz. (3 times the size/amount of your average M.A.C. blush)

  • Matte finish

  • Sheer application but buildable!

Overall I was very impressed with the Milani Rose Powder Blushes and these will most certainly be a kit staple for the bridal and beauty work that I do. You will get a lot of bang for your buck with this product. I really feel that these blushes are a must have, whether you’re in love with blush like myself, or want to start getting into wearing blush.
