5 stars out of 5

Milani Cheek Kiss Cream Blush is a new cream blush available in four shades that recently launched exclusively on Milani’s website. I imagine as we get nearer to Spring 2021 launches this will be available at Ulta and drugstores but for now it is exclusive to their site.

I actually prefer wearing cream blush in the Summer. I always feel like it’s a nice light way to get natural color on my cheeks but I know many of you prefer it in the Winter because cream looks better if you have drier or chapped cheeks.

Milani Cheek Kiss Cream Blush is not to be mistaken with the Milani Cheek Kiss Liquid Blush formula. They share the same name but the products are completely different.

Let’s have a look!

Milani Cheek Kiss Cream Blush comes housed in a basic clear compact that’s 0.21 oz in size and priced at $8.99. If it weren’t for the Milani gold logo on the front I wouldn’t even think it was made by them as they typically go with gold packaging for a majority of their launches. The compact is simple yet nice.

I picked up the shade Coral Crush which is a bright, loud cooler coral. You can actually use the formula on your cheeks as a blush or your lips as a lip balm! I wasn’t partial to it on my lips as it felt a little dry but did look quite nice with clear gel on top. That being said it was great as a blush! It’s a gel formula that’s lightweight with a lightly slick texture that applies quite easily and blends out well! It’s virtually impossible to get it wrong no matter how much you apply. The color is bright but still natural looking and melts right into skin without being greasy or dewy! As soon as I blend it out it settles into the second and doesn’t budge or move for eight solid hours! I thought it looked amazing when I applied a touch of highlighter on top of it as well! It’s a really solid gel blush as it doesn’t feel sticky or dewy and it doesn’t give me a shiny look! The color sets smooth like a powder but with the feel of a lightly hydrating blush.

All in all, Milani Cheek Kiss Cream Blush was a win! I do wish they had a wider selection of shades but aside from that this formula applies easily, has plenty of pigment, and wears long!

Great buy!
