Milani Romantic Rose Powder Blush & Matte Naked Lipstick Review and Swatches
Tuesday, February 17, 2015
I received a sample of Milani's Romantic Rose Powder Blush and Matte Naked Lipstick (Color Statement Lipstick Moisture Matte) to review. I love them both. I was smitten with Milani's Tea Rose Powder Blush last year, and the formula for the Romantic Rose ($7.99 at CVS) is even better (less powdery in my opinion). Romantic Rose (blush) has the same beautiful floral design and the color is very natural. Lately I've been wanting a made up look, without looking so made up. Well this blush gives me a nice wisp of color, while enhancing my natural skin-tone. The Matte Naked ($4.99 at CVS) lipstick really complimented the Romantic Rose blush. Matte lipsticks can be tricky. They're like satin and silk dresses. If your lips aren't in proper shape, every line, bump and crack will show! So definitely prep your lips. This lipstick was not as drying. It's described as a medium nude, which I definitely would agree. I've looked at other reviews, and it looks different on everyone. So it truly depends on your skin tone. On my hand, it's a berry color. However, on my lips it's more of a clay. I still love it, but I just wanted to mention that. I hope Milani comes out with more shades of these blushes and lipsticks. I love them and can see myself collecting them. You can see my other Milani reviews here.
