I was quick to come to the defense of Milani reintroduction of their Rose Powder Blush but I have to admit Milani Lady Rouge Rose Powder Blush did disappoint slightly.
I’ve had hit and miss issues with the newer Milani Rose Blushes. Some are great but some are a bit too dry and bright and this falls true for Lady Rouge.
Take a peek!
Milani Lady Rouge Rose Powder Blush
Milani Lady Rouge Rose Powder Blush is one of four new, limited edition Rose Powder Blushes that launched this Spring. I’m starting to see more and more displays of these at Walgreens so now is a good as any to discuss them.
This is a matte finish blush with a dryer, dense texture. The dryness actually isn’t much of an issue or at least it hasn’t up until now. I thought Lady Rouge was a touch to difficult to work with. It’s a bit powdery and has a drier, almost chalky texture that applies patchy and proves difficult to blend out. It’s extremely pigmented and I think that’s one of the reasons I had issues. The incredible pigmentation and dryness come together to create a very poor blending experience so I end up with patchy, clown-y cheeks as I can’t sheer the shade out well no matter how hard I work at it. Even applies very minimally I find the shade is just too pigmented and requires a very heavy hand to blend it to the best finish possible. Beware you need only use a tiny amount as this one packs pigment majorly. I think if you spend the time and effort to blend it well it looks incredible. The color is smooth without clinging to drier areas and has a certain airbrushed appearance. However, it takes a lot of effort to get it applied and blended out correctly to obtain that look due to the over pigmentation and drier formula.
Milani Lady Rouge Rose Powder Blush Swatches
Overall, Milani Lady Rouge Rose Powder Blush wasn’t my favorite shade of the four releases due to the trouble I had blending it. If you have time and patience this one might be worthy of a pick up especially because the shade is truly gorgeous especially for Summer looks and over a tan! However, if you lack the patience this color can easily frustrate users and too much can look patchy and even clown-like if you aren’t careful!
Milani Lady Rouge Rose Powder Blush is available now at drugstores or online at milanicosmetics.com.
