Milani Spring Collection 2010: Milani Tantastic Face and Body Baked Bronzer Review and Swatches

Dudes, wanna pick out people with bad tans?

Like my personal favs are Will Farrell, Napoleon Perdis, and Donatella Versace.

I swear I’m not being harsh but sometimes some folk look awful crispy don’t they?

If you’re wanting a bit of a golden glow minus the crisp you can check out the new Milani Tantastic Face and Body Baked Bronzer.


The Muse likes a little shimmer and sparkle with her bronzers to be honest so I’m not lovin’ all over Milani Tantastic Face and Body Baked Bronzer however it’s a great matte formula that blends easily and comes with an affordable little price tag if you’re cheapin’ up your bronzer experience this Summer.

I’m normally not a bronzer girl but last Summer I went mad about bronzers and some turned into my best friend forever. With a lighter hand I can easily make this bronzer work particularly with a bit of cheek stain underneath as it gives me that tanning after glow look.

Milani has this available in three shades. I tried Gold the lightest of the shades. As you can see Gold is pretty brown even though it’s the lightest of the bunch.

Packaging is a tad weak as I’m not a fond fan of Milani packaging but adore the actual products so try not to over look the product because of the packaging. The powder has a cute flower design which of course appeals.

Overall, Milani Tantastic Face and Body Baked Bronzer is as good as any $25-$30 bronzer on the market in my opinion. Good formula, plenty of pigmentation, and price tag under $8 can’t be beat. If you want to get that Summer glow right now, check it at your local CVS.

Anyone a fan of bronzers?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Don’t do bronzers, they make nunu look like a golliwog.
    Haha but you’re spot on about Donatella Versace. Remember that photo of her in the neon green bikini which was slipping down her bum, cellulite out on display, and looking as brown as a all bran muffin?

    • the Muse

      man nunu you nailed that one on the head…an all bran muffin exactly LOL! I so can’t do a tan please god nooooo! SPF me up baby! jeepers creepers!

    I hate to sound like an idiot, but I’ve never used bronzer in my life: Where do you usually put bronzer, the same place as blush?

  • Del

    Every time I hear “bad tan” I think of when Paris Hilton & Nicole Richie were that weird orange color…they looked alienish to me…but since orange is in for spring, maybe they should rock the orange tans again- j/k

    • the Muse

      LOL del! perhaps 😀 I gotta give Nocole Richie props though she really cleaned up good!

    Hi, Muse!
    My interest in bronzers is recent, but I like them to balance the color when my foundation is a bit too light. This one looks lovely, the little flowers stamp is so cute!

  • Nunu

    The shades of this bronzer: Gold, Bronze, Glow Sun; is Gold the lightest, Bronze is medium, and Glow Sun is the darkest?

    I saw it on Milani web and confused which should I buy. I first thought the shades show how you want your tan look: glow, bronze, or sunglow. But then I’m not so sure :D.

    Can you recommend me which shade should I buy? I’m actually aiming for the gold, coz I thought it will give goldy look. But reading your review, I’m afraid it won’t show on my NC37-40 complexion.

    Thank you.

      hi nunu def not an expert at selecting bronzer shades for other folks 🙁 sorry. I don’t even know my correct MAC foundation shade lol so can’t compare to yours. You can always return in store if the shade doesn’t suit you 🙂
