Milani Rose Blush 2014

Milani Rose Powder blushes are back for the 2nd year in a row. Most of us remember them from last year because there were multiple complaints that the pigmentation was not all that great. I learned that as well when reviewing Milani Bella Rosa.  With a new collection of colors comes high hopes that these will be better. I have all four to review, so let’s check it out.

The 2014 Milani Rose blushes are packaged just the same as last year. They are not like the regular line of blushes because they do not have that extra little compartment on the bottom to store a travel sized blush brush and mirror. That’s not a big deal, but I don’t consider the rose blushes travel friendly.

The design on the blush is that all familiar beautiful rose. So gorgeous that you almost don’t even want to use them. The finish on all the blushes are matte, and the texture is powder. When dealing with pigmentation, they did well for me. It’s going to come down to what kind of blush brush you are using. A firmer blush brush will pick up more color, but will blend out too hard. As prehistoric as it may sound, I find picking the color up with my finger, rubbing on my cheek and blending out with a softer blush brush yields better results. Beware of the fallout. No matter what brush you use, there’s going to be fallout.

When looking at the swatches below, take note that I applied with my finger, and blended out with a soft blush brush for reference.

The four shades this year are Lady Rouge, Love Potion, Tea Rose and Coral Cove.

Milani Lady Rouge is a bright coral with subtle red undertones.

Milani Love Potion is a warm medium toned pink. This one goes down as a blush for all shades in my book.

Milani Tea Rose is a cool toned carnation pink.

    I couldn’t get these. last year. I am hoping to find them, this year. My stupid CVS is so spotty about getting the new Milani goodies. They get some, not others. They FINALLY got the shadow pencils, you know, the neutral ones that came out last year? Grrr!

    These blushes are so pretty to look at, but the quality is really not the greatest 🙁 I bought Tea Rose and hated it so much, I didn’t even want to waste my time reviewing it. In addition to the fallout you already mentioned, it felt chalky and dry on the skin and took too long to properly blend out. Maybe my skin is just weird like that?


    1. GlitteryGlossy

      Yeah matte blushes and certain skin types sometimes dont mix. I’m sorry they didnt work for you 🙁
