Milani Roses Powder Blush Review
I suppose we should talk about their packaging first. It comes in a flip-top gold compact like their Illuminating Face Powders. The actual product is pressed beautifully! I love the 3D raised rose design. (It's almost too pretty to use. Almost.) These pack a huge amount of product for the price! They hold a generous 0.60 oz (17g) of product for $6.49. (For reference, a MAC blush is 0.21 oz (6g) for $21.) These really are a steal!
I found mine at a local grocery store that carries Milani products, but these will also be available at CVS, Kmart, Walgreens, Meijer, Fred Meyers. Unfortunately, these are sold out on Milani's website, so hurry into your local stores to snatch up the last of them!
The two that I purchased, 01 Romantic Rose and 02 Flora Passion, are semi-matte and don't have any shimmer. When I first swatched them, they felt a touch powdery, but they blended out beautifully and smoothly. I have dry skin, and these still worked well without clinging to any dry areas. These are pigmented, but workable and lasted a good 7 hours without fading before I washed them off at night!
I'm so happy with the two colors I bought and wish I would have bought the whole line!
