Since this post in July 2013 I'm still in love with these blushes. Over the years the stash has changed but what has remained constant is my appreciation for how great these blushes are and their affordable price. Milani's website states: "this silky blush with benefits can be used so many ways. It shapes, it contours, it highlights. Sunbaked on Italian terracotta tiles, it’s buildable from sheer to vibrant. Yes, it adds a cheeky pop of colour to your complexion. Radiance and warmth, too". These blushes are available in nine shades; I currently have four.
L - R: 05 'Luminoso', 07 'Fantastico Mauve', 09 'Red Vino' and 11 'Bella Rosa'
I hope it is visible in the swatch photo that 'Bella Rosa' is a matte blush. Milani added two matte offerings to line; this was especially great for people who have texture on their cheeks since shimmer tends to accentuate imperfections and pores.
Probably the most popular of these blushes is 'Luminoso'. I've seen women of all skintones rave about this on YouTube. Heidi got me this on sale for sweet $5; usually $12 - $19.95. As I mentioned here, I love to pair it with a burnt orange blush shade since alone it's rather sheer on my complexion.

The more pigmented shades are very easy to blend and depending on which one you choose can double as a subtle highlighter. What's very impressive about these is how similar they are to M.A.C Mineralize Blushes...at a fraction of the price and the Milani ones contain .3 grams more product #winning.
Aren't they gorgeous!

I've had 'Corallina' and 'Berry Amore' in the past but sold them in The Marketplace because: 'Corallina' contained silver glitter that was a bit too much for me and 'Berry Amore' was a declutter casualty that I actually semi-regret. But I already have too many blushes right? :'(
What are your favourite shades in this range?
