Milani Cosmetics is one of these bargain, budget-friendly, nearly always available on sale drugstore beauty brands that surely has my attention. I have long loved their Baked Blush, and now even more so with the introduction of two new matte baked blushes, Delizioso Pink and Bella Rosa.
Are you drooling yet?
Just look at the incredible color payoff. Amazing! You would hardly believe that this is a $7.99 product.
The blushes come with a secret compartment that holds a mini-brush. I never use these for blush, but they’re great for cleaning my laptop!
I spent many, many years of being a high-end blush snob – I could hardly believe that a highly pigmented blush for under $10 was remotely possible, but Milani has managed to prove me and my snobby ways wrong. One note of caution: Bella Rosa is intense! However, when used with a light hand, you will get a gorgeous and natural flush.
Here’s Delizioso Pink on me:
And here’s Bella Rosa:
My Final Thoughts: Milani’s new matte blushes in Bella Rosa and Delizioso Pink offer a ton of pigmentation and don’t pull a presto chango disappearing act on your cheeks, lasting for several hours. I still notice color on my cheeks after about 6-7 hours, and that’s a good blush, in my professional opinion. Nab ‘em!
