Hi guys! I have for you today a review on the Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso! I’ve heard so much about the Milani Baked Blushes and how great they are, especially this particular shade in Luminoso. I think the person that influenced me to buy it, however, is Ingrid (missglamorazzi on YouTube). I’m not sure how long it was ago, but I remember Ingrid constantly mentioning this blush in her videos, and I’m a huuuuuge fan so..
Luminoso is a liiiiight (note the number of i’s, haha) peachy pink colour with some light gold shimmer running through it. When I first got this and swatched it on the back of my hand, I remember thinking, “OH NO! This is definitely not going to show up on my skin (since I have medium yellow-undertoned skin)”, and I was right.. it doesn’t, unless I pack it on with a heavy hand (like I did in the pictures above). However, I did find that I like using this blush on top of other blushes. Because it has that beautiful sheen from the gold shimmers, it takes the place of my highlighter. I find the highlighting properties of this blush to be amazing because the shimmers are so finely milled that you don’t see chunky glitters on your face. Sometimes I like using this on its own too, as a light peachy blush.
Eventhough this blush is too light to show up much on my skin, it is super pigmented so it’s easy to build up. I love that this blush is very buttery, and applies to the skin evenly. I also find this blush to be very long-wearing.
Luminoso will probably look best on lighter skintones as a blush, but it will work perfect as a highlighter for medium to darker skintones.
You can buy these from your local drugstore, or on milanicosmetics.com for $8.49. I don’t think you can buy this in Malaysia, but if you can find it anywhere, definitely grab it! It’s an amazing product!
Thanks for reading, xoxo
