Milani Bella Rosa Matte Baked Blush is one of two new matte finish baked blush shades that Milani has introduced with their Spring 2014 Collection.
There’s already a wide array of beautiful Baked Blush shades that Milani offers in their permanent collection but they are sadly lacking in any matte shades. I imagine this is exciting for those who aren’t fans of shimmer!
Take a look!
Milani Bella Rosa Matte Baked Blush is a bright almost rosy red pink with absolutely no shimmer, sparkle, or glitter of any kind. This is unique shade that will really pop on darker skin tones.
The formula has a dense yet soft, silky texture that isn’t powdery or chalky and blends easily onto cheeks leaving behind a sheer was of color or with a heavier hand a majorly dramatic finish. This is the color that gives you that just walked into from the cold look. If you have ruddiness in your cheeks or you’re super pale it may not exactly work for you as it is pretty bold! However, if you’re determined to own it and make it work might I suggest application with a fan brush?
The blush comes in a dual compartment which features the blush on top and a smaller well for the brush below. The brush is a nice extra with soft bristles however, I prefer using my own blush for application. I’ve said it in the past but I must admit that as gorgeous as the formula is I’m shallow enough to say I dislike Milani’s gold packaging. It scratches up easily, attracts fingerprints, and it just looks old and used after a single use. I wish they’d update there packaging slightly!
Aside from my packaging rants I have to say that Milani Bella Rosa Matte Baked Blush is a winner! It probably won’t be a sad that works for everyone but if you love vibrant, pigment packed blushes that aren’t going to cost you an arm and a leg this is a great formula!
