Hello, beauties! Today I'm reviewing one of the popular Milani Baked Blushes in Dolce Pink 01 which I wore in my recent Valentine's Day Makeup Look. It took me a while to get into the Milani blushes because I was intimidated by the shimmer. I feared that they would look like a frost overload. After trying out two of them, I found that the finish they give on the face is more subdued and very pretty.
Not the most pigmented blush I've used, I need to build it up a bit for it to show up on my medium skintone. However, with this kind of finish I think that's a good thing. Imagine if the lightest swipe of your brush gave you a super frosty finish!
Despite the intimidating frosty look on the pan, the finish of this blush is a nice satin/shimmer. Very pretty! Because of the nature of the blush, it does accentuate pores so beware of that.
The texture isn't super soft, but it's easy to blend and it's not powdery or stiff by any means. It might not be silky smooth because it's a baked blush. I wouldn't know because I haven't used many baked blushes.
The staying power is average/good. After a few hours the color fades first and you're left with the gold shimmer.
Dolce Pink isn't amazing formula-wise. However, it's still a good blush and it's affordable. What made me fall in love with this blush is its glowy finish. My suggestion to Milani would be to make the pink color base a little stronger because sometimes you get more shimmer than you get actual color.
