REVIEW | Milani Luminoso Baked Blush

I am finally back with a product review! It has surely been a while since I made these type of posts. Anyway, today, I'm reviewing Milani's Luminoso; a product that has been compared to NARS Orgasm and a well-loved product in the beauty community.

I want to give Milani a 5/5 for just the packaging of their products. It makes it feel as if you have payed more than the price of the blush. The packaging is made out of plastic but it's completely sturdy and incredibly pretty. (I actually feel like a princess whenever I use this blush lol)

I thought that the product was larger than it was in real life. But I think that the amount of product and the size of the packaging is enough for the price that we're dealing with here. ($8.49)

Each of their baked blushes come with a compact mirror and a blush underneath the product. Though, I wouldn't advise using the brush that comes with the product because it's kind of stiff and the effects of the way you apply the product may vary. Even though I wouldn't recommend the brush that it comes with, I would still say that this is a great product for traveling and going to different places. It's a one stop product. You've got a mirror and a brush and you're good to go!

Let's talk about the product, shall we? :)

I see terracotta. Terracotta everywhere. The perfect way of mixing a pinch of pink to peach. The blush is super silky and I am not even kidding you at all. It blends really well and it shines like its supposed to. You are not welcomed by a boom from a firework; instead, It leaves a healthy, subtle glow that anyone could rock.

In my case, I need to build up the product to what I wanted it to appear on me. It was kind of light and the peachy-ness of this product didn't really show up in my Filipina skin. I kind of mix it with a deeper shade of blush to get the pay-off that I want.

Check out the swatches I made below:

I also use this product as a highlighter at times. I really like how the light bounces off of it because it's not too strong-looking.

I am also not-so-happy with the staying power of the blush. It can be wiped away by the oils (especially here in the tropical climate) so you'll have to reapply this at least 2-3 times a day if you're out and about.

Overall, I think that this was a very nice product. I think that I might prefer the other colors in Milani's line instead of this one. I also, personally don't think that this is a dupe for NARS Orgasm blush. I haven't actually tried the blush but judging from the photos, Luminoso is way more peachier than the Orgasm (which screams pink) to me.

That is all for today's post and I hope that you enjoyed reading through it. I have worked extra-hard into creating content for you guys. I shoot photos by myself (and I'm going back to Manual now! I want to relive what I learned before) and I also took care of the lighting in this post. As you can see, there's a trend going on in this post. It looks dreamy and princess-y because I placed the lighting somewhere else and I shot at night time. I also am the one who edits these and I'm so happy for what it had turn out to be. 

Thank you so much for reading! I'll see you soon!
