Just take a look at these ridiculously gorgeous products from Milani Cosmetics! How pretty are they!? Milani has been on my radar for a while, but you don’t really hear too much about them this side of the pond, and apart from the word on the street being that their baked cosmetics are a great dupes for MAC’s MSF’s, they don’t really have any hyped up, must have products either – that I know of anyway!
So I was recently given the chance to try some Milani products out, and completely jumped at the opportunity so I could see for myself what they’re all about. I went for a baked bronzer, blush and eyeshadow, and a pretty powder blush.
There’s no denying that the Powder Blush in 01 Romantic Rose is the prettiest of the bunch. This stunning 3D rose pressed powder, I’ve found out, was originally a limited edition but has now been added to the permanent line due to high demand. There’s no denying this is a beautiful looking product – it also comes in three shades, it’s well pigmented and really does give amazing colour payoff.
Romantic Rose is such a pretty, easy to wear shade, and it’s also worth mentioning this is a pretty big product too, you’re getting a massive 17g of blush here so it’s going to last you forever.
The Baked Blusher in 05 Luminoso, though not as pretty as the powder blush, is just the most beautiful summery shade of peachy coral. Luminoso, true to it’s name, really does give a luminous glow and brightens the complexion. It’s one of those fantastically versatile shades that suits my fair skin, but I think would look equally as good on darker skin tones. Luminoso is just a super pretty, flattering shade that gives a sheer wash of colour to enhance and warm up the complexion. I’m so glad I picked this shade, I can see myself getting a lot of use out of this!
And I almost forgot to say, you can open the compact up to reveal a super handy brush and interior mirror too!
Milani’s Baked Eyeshadow in 01 Bella Ivory also has a fantastic luminescence to it. The pan is shaped with a slight indent in the middle and an all over printed pattern which really looks beautiful when it catches the light. Bella Ivory is a pretty, easy to wear warm toned white shade with a slight sheen, and it has a lovely soft texture that’s easy to work with and blend.
And lastly the Baked Bronzer in 06 Golden, though beautiful again, I instantly thought this shade would be too dark for me! You can see this is a lovely chocolate brown colour with gold flecks throughout, and everything about it reminds me of MAC’s MSF’s – from the size of the compact to the look of the product. These Baked Bronzers also come in three shades – Glow, Soleil and Golden and although Golden does look super dark, it’s actually quite a lovely shade, and worn very sparingly, I think even lighter skin tones could pull this off.
Like MAC’s MSF’s these bronzers have a lovely sparkle and shimmer, which gives the face a healthy dose of golden glow. The Baked Bronzers also come in the same style compact as the blushers – opening up to reveal a mirror and brush underneath which I love as you can just throw them in your bag and go!
All of these products are fantastic value for money at £6.99 or less, and considering the whole range of Milani Cosmetics come in at under £8.00 at Comedic.co.uk, I’m so impressed with everything I’ve been trying out. I think the Baked Blusher has to be my favourite out of everything, but I’m also keen to get my hands on the lighter shades of Baked Bronzer too!
Have you tried Milani Cosmetics before? I’d love to hear if you have any recommendations and I hope you enjoyed my post! xxx
