Today I will be reviewing my all-time favorite blush – Milani baked blush ‘Luminoso’.
This one blush needs no introduction. You just google it and you will see reviews only full of Ahhs and Ohhs. This is probably the closest drugstore dupe of an iconic blush from NARS- ‘Orgasm’, just a tad bit more peachier! Since it is a baked blush, expected that the finish will be shimmery and hence the name ‘Luminoso’, which makes sure to give your cheeks a luminous glow with some hint of pretty peach!
Where did I get it from?
Amazon.com (courtesy: My US returned friend)
How much I paid?
Around 9 USD
My take on the blush:
Look at the packaging guys! The golden rimmed plastic pan packaging can surely give some of the high end ones a run for their money. The pan has two compartments inside: One which holds the actual product and the bottom one for holding the applicator.
Yes, it comes with a decent applicator which does it’ job of touching up! And not to forget, the huge mirror!
The shade is a pretty peach with lots of golden sheen which literally transforms my cheeks into blush heaven. The golden shimmer particles are very fine, which looks natural on skin and imparts a healthy glow.
I generally apply this with my fingers first and then blend it with a fluffy brush. I feel fingers work the best with baked formulas.
The staying power is pretty good! It definitely fades a bit after a time span of 5-6 hours but leaves behind beautiful sheen with soft flush.
- Beautiful shimmery peach blush, very flattering on warm Indian skin
- Blends like dream
- Nice pigmentation
- Looks natural and imparts luminous glow to the skin
- Can be paired with lots of lipstick shades

- Nothing, I love every bit of it!!
I am a huge fan of baked makeup formulas. So I worship this blush. If you have access to Milani products and if you like shimmery blushes, just get it! Every girl needs to have this blush in her makeup stash.
