Milani Luminous Blush versus Luminoso Baked Blush


I really discovered the brand Milani last year. They came out with some wonderful products. Let’s not talk about their Liquif’eye metallic eyeliners. It’s to die for kind of makeup. Now I had the so called dupe for the cult favourite Nars Orgasm; Milani’s Luminous powder blush and couldn’t resist getting the new baked blush in Luminoso to compare. If you just look at them in the pan you would think I’m comparing pink and peach but when you swatch them the similarities start to appear. 

You can see they both have that peachy pink colour with luminous having a more shiny finish.

Because of my skin tone it takes quite a bit of the both blushes to really show up on the area applied. Luminous shows up way more shimmery on my cheeks than the baked blush Luminoso. While I like them both as blushes I prefer to use them as highlighters instead since they are shimmery. I really get that stunning glow when used on the nose bridge and top of cheekbones when used as a highlighter. They do fade during the day and so I have to reapply if used as a blush. So while these two are great blushes they aren’t the right ones for me. I need some more pigmented colours. I’m off to hunt for some. What should I try?
Happy blushing!
