Milani Baked Powder Blush in Berry Amore - Review & Swatches



Happy 1st of January, 2016 to all of you. This is going to be the last post with the decorations I used for the Christmas and the holidays. I loved how it changed my posts and made them festive, compared to the regular pictures I take for my blog during normal times. I hope you enjoyed the decorations as well.

I thought I should start the new year with another product review. I personally love reviewing products and share my thoughts and opinions on the stuff I buy and try out. This Milani Baked Blush has been around a while, and so many people enjoy it. So like a good makeup lover that I am, I bought it to try it out for myself. I actually bought this a long while back, and the reason I just got one of the shades is because I wasn't into blush all that much before. My tastes keep changing and now I am enjoying wearing blushes a lot more. But back then I wasn't so I didn't purchase a bunch of them. Now that I am into blushes, I have a few from other brands that I don't feel like I need any more. So I'll be sticking with just this one shade from the line.

This Milani baked blush comes in a gold packaging. It's really beautiful and I love that you can see the blush from the packaging without opening it. Even though the packaging looks absolutely beautiful, the quality is not all that great to be honest. It's a light weight, delicate plastic packaging. I would say not travel friendly because it feels like it could break easily, or if you drop it even, it would break. The color I have is absolutely gorgeous. Berry Amore is a shimmery rose color with soft, fine gold flecks. The blush itself, feels soft and smooth, not dry or chalky. It's very pigmented, gives the skin a natural, healthy glow. The gold flecks blend out really nicely, so it's not in the face, gold glitter on the cheeks. This color is very wearable. I would say the staying power is around six to eight hours for me. After that, it does fade, but not in a bad way, as in getting blotchy or patchy. It's just not as much as it was first applied, which is fine really. It also goes on the skin evenly and smoothly, so I haven't had any problem with application either. One downside to this product is the bottom half of the packaging. I feel like the brush they provided is really unnecessary since it's not that good of a quality and I would never use it. So it's just waste of packaging to be honest. But I don't let that bother me a lot, since I enjoy the blush so much.

Overall, I think this is an awesome, affordable drugstore blush. I would hope the other colors are as amazing as this. Honestly, all I have heard from people using these, are positive feedback. I would say this isn't a blush for those who love a matte look on their cheeks. This gives the skin a little shimmer and a glowy  look so it might not be for everyone, but it looks really pretty on the skin. I do love this and if I am looking for a new blush shade, I would definitely check out the rest of the colors from this line first.
