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.

Baked Blush Luminoso
Powder blush Luminous
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!

  1. I have always been curious about this blush but I was always afraid it would not show up on my tan skin. They do look gorgeous as highlighters. And Milani is slowly becoming a favorite brand, great products at affordable prices. If you can, give LORAC blush in Soul a try- looks amazing! :)

One year already? OMG! Time really flies when you're having fun . I really enjoyed my one year with you. I've made new friends, improved on my nail and makeup techniques, tried new trends and products, discovered I love nail art (can you tell) and the list goes on. But most importantly I want to thank you all for your support and kind words that kept me going. Honestly there were some times when I was down since I didn't feel my articles and pictures were great but you stuck in with me and for that I say thank you. But I also would like to say thank you and to celebrate this achievement by my first ever giveaway! A Rafflecopter Giveaway

To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass. 

Nail Challenge Day 10: Blue Black Gradient Nails

Just when I thought my Rainbow nails were my favourite so far in the challenge, along came the gradient nails and replaced my love in an instant. I couldn't believe how stunning the combination of black and blue would look together. It's a truly simple design that is very popular with the DIY nail polish crowd.
