The Blush Bombardment Continues with Milani!

Howdy all!  Today I'll be showing you two of my favorite blushes in my collection-both from Milani.  Milani has some amazing eyeliner, and nail polishes, but their blushes are where its at.

First up is one that I'm not sure if you can find in stores anymore but I know you can find it online at CherryCulture & Amazon.  Its Milani Minerals blush in Luminous.  I didn't even know about this blush until a few months ago, but I'm glad I was able to pick one (or two ) up.  Luminous is absolutely gorgeous, and is one of those blushes that comes up constantly when you google "Nars Orgasm Dupe".  Do I think its a dupe? Eh. Its not as pigmented as Nars, but its definitely close, and it is great quality.  Its pinky/peach and its lovely!

Luminous is long wearing, smooth to apply, and overall a fun blush to use.  Its easily blended out for a subtle look, or can be easily built up.  Also, unlike Nars, there's no sparkle (its more of a sheen) ! This is my favorite blush for spring since it leans more pink then peach.

Pictures and Swatch!

The other Milani Blush I have for you today is Milani's Baked Blush in Luminoso.  This is more readily available (and much easier to find) then Luminous. Where Luminious is more pink then peach, this is more peach with a small bit of pink.  It also has a sheen to it and there are no sparkles anywhere to be seen! Like Luminous its very long wearing, and super pigmented.  This blush is probably best for fair-fair/medium skinned ladies, however with 8 shades in their line, there's something for everyone.  The blush is blendable, soft  and is a dream to apply.  A little goes a long way with this. 

Luminouso is another blush that's compared to Nars Orgasm often.  The color is similar, however not as deeply pigmented as Nars, and also doesn't contain the shimmer that Orgasm does.  

Picture and Swatch time!

Overall these two blushes are amazing, and worthy of being in everyone's collection. They're highly pigmented, blendable , and long wearing.   Even if Luminoso isn't for you, I highly suggest you head to your nearest drugstore and pick up one of the other baked blush shades.  Luminoso retails for about 8.99 and Luminous can be found online for around 6$.  

I bought these myself-all opinions are my own
