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!

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…

Hot Milk Sponge Cake with Fresh Fruit & Coconut

In today's yummy post we are doing an easy sponge cake (no creaming of butter and sugar involved). Instead of torting this cake we are using two loaf pans to give us our two layers, which we will pull together with vanilla buttercream. I love the rectangular look of this cake rather than the traditional round or square but more importantly the flavors of the toasted coconut on the sides and fresh fruit on top makes for a mouth watering dessert.
