I had a Eureka moment when I finally found a powder blush, that was talc-free, madly pigmented and the best of all, was a mere 6 bucks!!
Milani Minerals powder blush is one of the best blushes one can find in the drugstore aisles. Available in four shades, Luminous, Sunset Beach, Mai Tai and Sweet Rose, these are a beautiful addition to your blush collection.
I got them in Sunset Beach and Sweet Rose. Sunset Beach is a warm matte apricot, best suited for medium skin tones and Sweet Rose is a flat, matte dusty rose which I think, can be worn by all skin tones.
There is absolutely no fall out here and they go on so smooth and creamy for a powder blush. The texture is slightly more creamier than the usual powder blushes that I have tried so far.
Being talc-free and mineral based, it does not clog pores and the creamy texture makes it suitable for drier skin-types as well. Could I ask for more?
Here are the swatches.The first one is sunset beach and the second one is sweet rose all taken in daylight, without flash.
Oh, not to mention, they come with an absolutely useless brush which does not serve *any* purpose. Well, not that bad actually, I use it to clean my keyboard and dust off eyeshadow fallout! The mirror inside is handy for touch-ups though, which by the way, I needed only after a good 3-4 hours.
- Lovely creamy texture for a powder blush, blends like a dream and awesome pigmentation.
- Something that's so affordable. Seriously, I never thought something as cheap as $6 would perform so well!
- No fallout.
- Does not clog pores.
- Because of the pigmentation, it's easy to go overboard with this one.
- I wish Milani didn't stop with just four colors :(
I would be buying the other two colors soon. They are 'Mai Tai', a coral shade and 'Luminous', a peachy pink with golden glitter which, is also supposedly a close dupe of NARS Oragsm(let's see that!).
With no doubt,these are the best Powder Blushes I have tried so far from the drugstore and they perform much better than so many high end, department store ones.
Check it out the next time you are at the store. You'll know what I am talking about.
Available at Target, CVS and online at cherryculture.com.
