Review: Milani Baked Blusher in Delizioso Pink


   You know when you come up with a shade that you just need. You don't even know what brand to get said shade from, you just know you need to get it from somewhere. Maybe you don't get that feeling and I'm just a crazy beauty shopping addict. Well, I've been wanting a cool toned (maybe a hint of lavender) hot pink blusher and I think I've found it and it's under $10. Milani has just been killing it with all of their new releases and when I saw the matte blusher in Delizioso Pink, I knew that the shade I've been searching for had finally arrived. I bought it because of the shade, but I didn't realize that the formula would end up being one of my all time favorites! 



   Let's talk about the formula, because it's stellar. I have never touched a blusher as soft and creamy as this one! Nars, Benefit, MAC; they've got nothing on this one! It's also fairly pigmented, but it's so soft and blendable, that I never find myself freaking about applying too much. It's definitely matte, but there's still a healthy sheen to it; making it very natural looking. 

   It comes with a mirror and an applicator, which I could live without. If anything, I find that the little flippy flappy thing is just a huge inconvenience. However, I guess it could be useful to some people...but, let's be honest, who retouches their blush?


   I mean isn't that shade just fucking perfection?! I would also like to mention that (from swatching) I found that this reminded me of the Clinique blushers that just came out! Very similar colors, textures and finishes! If you were planning on checking out the Clinique blushers, I say give these a go first!


   Wow I don't know why my finger looks so old and wrinkly...I'm all of a sudden really insecure about my fingers....

Usually, I have to list some pros and cons for a review, but I don't have any cons for this one! I think this is a holy grail status you guys.. It's like in a movie and you think to yourself ¨how did those characters fall in love so quickly, that doesn't make any sense¨..well that's like my relationship with this blusher! And hey, it's cruelty free!

    JFC when I initially saw this, I was like "HOLY HELLS THAT IS BRIGHT". Definitely not a shade I gravitate towards, but still pretty. (I agree though, who even retouches blush????)
    As for softness...IDK MAN. Nothing beats Illamasqua, in my opinion. Swatch that at Sephora, and tell me which one is softer, OK??!?!?!?

  5. Holy hot pink! This is such a bright and beautiful blush. I wish I could get my hands on some Milani blushes right now. I actually have one of their highlighting blushes (which I adore), but now I really want this one too! Plus, bonus points to Milani for being waaay more affordable than Nars, Benefit, and MAC.

  9. I know that feeling too!!!! So glad I'm not alone! This looks amazing, would love to see a FOTD with it. I haven't checked to see if the Milani blushers are in stock near me yet. I suppose I'd better hurry before they all sell out!!

    ReplyDelete
  10. What a beaut!! I wish this was available in Canada already! It's a scary colour in the pan, and one that I am not sure about being able to pull off on a daily basis so I would love to see if Milani will expand the shade range :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. haha, but that's what makes it beaaautiful :)! Despite it being to bright, it applies really well and looks really natural!

  17. I always see these and have thought about trying one, but they seem way too pigmented for me. I prefer the barely there blush look.

  18. What a gorgeous color! I have not seen this one in stores, but if I do, I'm going to have to grab it up!

  20. Oh it's very natural and fresh looking! I also found that it blended out so nicely, that it was hard to get a super bright or ''too much'' look! I think this would be a gorgeous shade for all skin tones!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Isn't it? I'm just in love with it!

    ReplyDelete
  22. haha thank you, it's really accurate too! I actually don't know where it's from, but when I saw it, I knew it was the one

    ReplyDelete
  23. I haven't tried any of the original baked blushers, but now I really want to get my hands on some! I was so impressed with this one that I have high expectations for those ones!


    Thanks for commenting :)

  24. haha! The only thing I can remember to retouch is my lipstick...sometimes!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love how it's so pigmented, but still applies beautifully and naturally! I'm so in love! Thanks for commenting!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I wish you guys could get them too!!! Why can't all makeup be international :(??

    ReplyDelete
  27. isn't it? I'm officially obsessed!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'll probably post a pic on instagram, so keep and eye out! And I'm so glad I'm not the only one! haha! I do the same thing with lipsticks too! It can be really frustrating though if I can't find that shade anywhere!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Despite it being so scary looking; it looks extremely natural and health on! I am UBER fair and I can pull this off well! So, if I can pull it off, everyone can pull it off!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm also thinking about that other shade now too! Sooo in love with this formula; I wouldn't mind having both! :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm very fair...but I've always disregarded pink blusher! Now I'm starting to realize why everyone recommends pink for pale skin..because it's a STUNNING combination!


    Thanks for commenting! :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Definitely look out for this one! It's worth the hunt! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Trust me, with a fluffy brush, you can get a subtle and healthy flush! Also, this blends out like a dream, so too much blusher is not a problem!

    ReplyDelete
  34. You won't regret it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've only been into blusher for the past year; before that I hardly wore it! Beauty blogging has definitely converted me into a blusher addict haha! This is a really stunning shade though and I recommend it to everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  36. thanks, I'm heading over now! :)

  37. that might be a treacherous trip for me---> me+ sephora= an empty bank account; but I will accept that mission and let you know!

  38. I went through that a few years ago after seeing pictures of Sophie Ellis-Bextor in the most amazing bright pink lipstick. I can't even describe the color, I feel like it doesn't even exist in real life! LOL I never did find a perfect match, still searching. (This is the link to the pictures BTW, maybe you can recommend something? http://www.popsugar.com.au/beauty/Photos-Sophie-Ellis-Sky-TV-Happily-Ever-After-Campaign-8903982)

  39. oooooooooooooh my goodness I am in love with that color too! It's such a pretty, vibrant watermelon shade! I'm definitely on the hunt for a shade like it and I'll let you know if I find anything like it!

  41. I've seen this popping up on blogs lately and I'm majorly lusting after it. I can't wait to hit the US drugstores next month and make a dent in the Milani counter.
