Milani Baked Powder Blush in Rose D'Oro and Corallina

Hello, When it comes to drugstore powder blushes, Milani Baked Powder Blush has been my favorite for quite some time now.  They remind me a lot like my other favorite, MAC Mineralize Blush.  Both Milani and MAC's formula and finish are very similar.  Both powder blush formulas are baked into a dome shape in the pan.  The colors offered in both lines are equally amazing and highly pigmented.  But Milani wins hands down in the price department, it costs three times less than MAC.  Milani is a great dupe if you are on a budget and still want quality that is comparable to high end brands.

I currently own two Milani Baked Powder Blushes in 02 Rose D'Oro (left) and 08 Corallina (right).  They may look dark or vibrant in the compact, but they can be applied sheer or heavy depending on which tools you apply it with.  They can be applied sheer with a powder diffuser brush or heavier with a regular blush brush.   It looks great either way, it can easily take you from day to night.

02 Rose D'Oro - Warm pink with gold shimmer

08 Corallina - Vibrant coral with white/silver shimmer

The plastic compact comes with a mirror and a small brush, very handy for touch up.  

In conclusion, you can't go wrong with these blushes.  These colors are right in trend for Spring and Summer.  They are available at most drugstores for under $8.

Do you use Milani Baked Powder Blushes?  Which shade do you wear?  Until next post......


  1. So pretty! I have never tried Milani, but have been looking at their blushes for a while now-- now I will have to pick one (or two) up!

    1. They are so affordable, I do not get that guilty feeling when I buy them:)

  2. I've wanted to try Milani blushes for a while now, I haven't found them stocked in a shop anywhere near me though. I want to try Luminoso and Corallina! Thank you for the swatches!

    1. I haven't seen you in a while, you must be busy:) Hope all is well. I tried Luminoso before, it is a lovely color for everyday.

  3. both are so gorgeous! perhaps it's due to the fact that i can easily find these everywhere, but i have never been tempted to grab any to try. hahahaha i have no idea why since i've only heard amazing reviews! will def grab a few the next time CVS has a sale or something.
