Milani Baked Blushes

Who's been hoarding any and every blush in sight as of late ??? That would be ME! When I first got into make-up I was all about shadow but as of late I'm more interested in Blush and lipsticks.  Some days I don't have time to fuss with shadow but along with foundation, blush is an everyday must for me.  When fellow blogger Rai (she also raved about these blushes)  tweeted about Milani Baked Blushes I knew I had to have them.  My local Walgreens was the ONLY place I could find them & some shades were sold out.

What Milani says about the Baked Blushes 
[in the $7 - $8 range depending on seller]
A luxurious powder blush that features a mélange infusion of colors baked on Italian terracotta tiles. Easy to use, sensorial in texture, the nuances of color become extraordinarily luminous. Silky smooth application leaves your face looking healthy and radiant all day.

I really really really LOVE the pigmentation on these blushes.  By far the best budget friendly drugstore blushes I've encountered.  They are compared to the MAC Mineralized Blushes which I have a bunch of but never reach for.  I might have to do a future post on actually comparing them.  They all have shimmer BUT when blended on the cheek they DO NOT look like a glitter bomb exploded. I'm only annoyed by the packaging.  I'm not one to care about packaging being pretty BUT when I took the plastic seal off the clear part of my Corallina blush was broken. 

Bellissimo Bronze -- medium Bronze base w/ warm gold shimmer & darker bronze veins

Dolce Pink -- Shimmery cool toned Pink

Berry Amore -- Swirls of shimmery Berry Pink & Golden Bronze intertwined

Fantastico Mauve -- Plum base w/ pink, shimmery bronze & white veins

Rose D'oro -- Rose base w/ shimmery bronze gold veins

Corallina -- warm Coral w/ shimmery white veins

I'm missing 3 shades Red Vino(too much for my skintone) , Luminoso (idk why i skipped it), and Terra Sole (only sold online), but i might pick them up at a later time. These blushes are a def. must have for all ladies, on a budget or not.  

What shades do you own or are on your wishlist???

I'm the same way! I only do shadow when I'm playing, but for every day or going out, I have to have my blush! I'm especially a sucker for pink-coral, berry, and bright pink shades. I'm loving the looks of Corallina and Dolce Pink!<3

Thanks for sharing! :)
