One of those brands there has been so much hype about amongst beauty editors and bloggers, is Milani Cosmetics, and in particular about their blushes, though lately more of their different products are also getting a lot of mentions. I am not sure why I have never actually gotten around to trying their products, until I was so lucky to get a few sent to me thanks to being a brand ambassador for the new online store The Beauty Drawers.

Lets start with the Milani Cosmetics Baked Blush. These blushes are made from being baked in the sun, on terracotta tiles in Italy, which does give them an added charm. At the Beauty Drawers, they are available in a massive 11 shades, and I put three of those to the test;

  • Dolce Pink - The palest of the three, a beautiful hot pink that has been swirled together with a lighter pink shade, along with golden shimmery particles
  • Corallina - A darker, coral pinky-red shade, swirled together with a pale pearlescent shade, again with shimmery particles
  • Red Vino - The darkest of the three, a burgundy-red wine shade with swirled together with a golden shade, and again with the shimmer

As promised these blushes are insanely pigmented so you can build them up to be very intense and vibrant, and you have to be cautious that you don't apply too much. A little seriously goes a long way, and the tiniest bit is sufficient for a sheer yet glowing and radiant look.

The blushes come in little round golden pots with a clear lid, and underneath the blush you'll find a tiny brush and also a mirror. The little brush is as such soft enough, but personally I prefer to use my own larger and softer brushes, also as I find you'll get a better and more blended result. But if you do tend to apply makeup on the go, the included brush and mirror is certainly a great touch.

The three shades I tried are all gorgeous their own right, but if I had to pick a favourite, it would probably be Corallina, followed by Dolce Pink. I do also like Red Vino, but the darker shade means that I think it will suit pale my skin tone a little better during summer when I have a slight tan.

At the low price of just $15.95, these blushes are seriously a great buy, and I already know that I’ll need to get my hands on a few more shades from the range.

Next up is the Milani Cosmetics Rose Powder Blush. This is seriously the most stunning blush you ever did see with its embossed rose, so no wonder you'll find more pictures of this one all over Instagram. This Rose blush is available in three gorgeous shades from The Beauty Drawers and I put the shade Romantic Rose to the test, which is a matte nude dusty rose shade. And this shade is the best shade for those with pale skin, giving you a beautiful and very natural blushed cheek. Perfect for everyday makeup, or a barely there look, also because it applies with just a very subtle sheen. Absolutely stunning. And as with the baked blushes, this one is also quite pigmented, so you have the choice if you want to apply just a sheer wash of colour, or have a more intense look.

The blush comes in a golden compact with a clear lid, so you can see and admire the beautiful embossing - and unlike the Baked Blush, this one doesn't come with a brush or mirror included, which does make the packing slightly more slimline and stylish, and again, I actually personally prefer this and leave the little brush out.

The blush is seriously stunning, both to look at and to use, that again, I think I'll need more of these in my life. And yet again, considering the high quality, it comes at a bargain price of just $17.95, also because it holds a massive 17g, which is a lot of a blush!

Then there's the Milani Cosmetics Baked Bronzer, which is also baked on Italian terracotta tiles. It is available in three shades, and I put the shade, Dolce to the test, which I believe is the darkest shade. However, even it is still perfect for my medium beige skin, and the bronzer swirled with shimmer, gives a lovely natural glowing finish. I am not usually a huge fan of shimmery bronzers as I feel they often end up being too shimmery and glittery, plus makes my combination skin look even greasier, but this one only has the tiniest amount of shimmer, giving the skin a lovely radiant and healthy sheen. It comes in a round compact, with the included small brush and mirror underneath the actual bronzer, and again, I much prefer, and feel I get a much better and more natural and even finish if I apply with a larger and softer powder brush, that said, it is certainly a great inclusion if you tend to apply makeup on the go.

Finally, there's the Milani 
Cosmetics Make it Dewy Setting Spray, which is the ultimate 3-in-1 product that will hydrate, illuminate and set. It spray can be used both under makeup for a moisture boost, as well as on top to set the makeup and make it last up to 16 hours without creasing, smudging or fading, even my combination skin. It also gives the skin a lovely radiant healthy glow. The spray applies in a super fine mist and has a lovely cooling and refreshing feeling on the skin, so you can also use it throughout the day to freshen up. It has the most beautiful fresh fruity scent, thanks to containing extracts from among others water melon. Another must try from the brand. 

So there you have it. I am honestly not sure why I have not gotten around to trying anything from Milani 
Cosmetics before, as these products are seriously amazing. The quality is so high considering their very affordable prices. I know I'll be reaching for these products again and again, and now even more keen than ever trying even more products from the brand. I highly recommend that you try them too!
