Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink

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.
Pigmentation
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!
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.
Formula
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.
Longevity
The staying power is average/good. After a few hours the color fades first and you're left with the gold shimmer.
Bottom line
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.

  5. Thanks for the review Coco ^^ I've been wanting to try Milani baked blushes for a while, but I'm so happy with the NYX's ones that I've kinda lost interest. Having said that, now that I see how lovely this colour is I'm adding it to my wishlist again hehe. What is the other colour you have? I've been eyeing Corallina and Rose D'Oro : )
    Have a great weekend sweetie, and happy birthday to your sister! xx

    1. I've tried Luminoso but found it too frosty. I own Rose D'Oro and it's beautiful. Thanks for remembering :) xx

  6. This kind of looks like MAC's mineralize blushes, maybe? But I know with MAC"s you only need the tiniest bit of the color because of how pigmented they are even though you wouldn't think it. Maybe it's just because this is drugstore so of course the quality isn't as great, but I would still definitely check these out if it saved me a couple of bucks! ;p

    1. Yeah, with drugstore blushes you don't usually get the super intense pigmentation that you get with high end. Which leads you to use more product and run out quicker. I find high end products last longer so that balances the higher cost. xx

  11. This shade looks so beautiful on you! I usually am a bit 'scared' of shimmery blushes, however it does add a glow without the highlight xx - Boho Vanity

  12. Hm...I was not impressed with Luminoso- there was just too much hype around it. It's already in my no-use drawer. It's a nice blush but maybe I have to try different color :)

  20. I love these Milani blushes. It looks lovely on you. Dolce Pink seem to be more powdery somehow just didn't last very well on me, otherwise the others seemed to last better.
