Milani Tea Rose Powder Blush Review

This is a product review for Milani Cosmetics. I received a Limited Edition Rose Powder Blush in Tea Rose (08) for review.
All opinions are 100% my own. [Press Sample]

This is my first time trying Milani Cosmetics. They sent me their Limited Edition Rose Powder Blush in Tea Rose (08) to review. It's a gorgeous pink and I must say I'm very impressed! Upon opening the cover, I said "Hello Gorgeous"! HaHaHa What? You don't talk to your beauty products? HaHaHa 

This rose petal palette is dimensional and beautiful. I was surprised to see such artistry from a drugstore brand! I then thought maybe the color would be weak. I was wrong! The pigmentation is awesome. The color is build-able. Excellent first impressions! All for $7.99! Oooh, Milani is smelling like a rose!

I really like THIS shade of pink and I've never been a big fan of rose-colored anything (makeup, jewelry, etc). HaHaHa Swirl your blush brush lightly into the palette. Blow off the excess (yes, you will have excess). Apply with a light hand. This blush is pigmented, so you don't want to overdo it. The staying power (wear time for me) was about 5 hours. Now, every rose does have its thorns! I've read reviews that stated this blush was chalky and powdery. I detected a little bit of each, but it wasn't doom or gloom (at all). To test this, I used dry hands (no lotion) to see how the blush would swatch on non-moisturized, non-primed, and for me (DRY) skin. This would be the worse case scenario, because most of us prime and moisturize our skin (face) before applying makeup. So look below! This blush doesn't look bad at all! The only other little thorn is the case (packaging). It's a hearty-feel-good-in-the-palm-of-your-hands case, but it does scratch easily (both the gold & plastic lid). So even though the contents on the inside are REALLY PRETTY, the outside gets scratchy & smudgy :(.  However, the cover closes tightly and snaps securely. So there's no product fall out, in your precious cosmetic bag or even worse purse :).

I took two snapshots wearing my Milani Tea Rose Powder Blush, with the curtains open (sunlight) and closed (shade). I thought this would give you a good idea of how it looks in different lighting. I REALLY liked how it looked on me. It's uplifting and I think it will be perfect for Spring & Summer. Milani's Tea Rose Powder Blush beats out the Dior Cherie Bow Blush I paid quadruple for last year (I use it, but still disappointed in it! HaHaHa) Despite the little quirks of Milani, I still give it a SWEET rating. What are your thoughts? Have you tried Milani Cosmetics?

These remind me so much of the clinique blushes! But at a much more affordable price! They look super pigmented but I expected that from milani since their baked blushes are really good too!
I have to agree that the packaging isn't the best but I guess that for the price I can't complain too much..
The color you got there is the prettiest from the line in my opinion!

i got it in lady rouge! so pretty and i want them all!

Coco said...

All considered I think it's a good product and I don't mind if the external package is not that glossy. Tea Rose shade really looks great on you, providing a soft romantic glow. I would choose that same shade too!

The flower shape the blush comes in is so cute Kim! And that shade is super pretty on you! $7.99 is a really good price for it.

I'm so glad you enjoyed Hero! The twist at the end was pretty cool after everything he went through. I think you may be able to find some of the movies on Hulu as well.

Have a fantastic weekend sweets!

Ooh la la Kim you make me want to run to Walgreen in an instant! Too funny you talked to your make up. .haha. The packaging looks so high end and i am glad to hear it works great. That shade really compliments your skin tone. Have a great weekend Kim.

Harlynn said...

Oooo love potion. I love the name but the color is too much for me. I think I'd also go with the tea Rose or Coral Cove. It looks lovely! I love the way it's manufactured too. c:


Lauren Michelle Major said...

Ooh, I love the way it looks! I like light, very natural looking blushes and this one checks those boxes! Thanks for sharing!

Sam Cole said...

That is really beautiful Kim, so beautiful I don't want to use it to mess up the beautiful rose. Looks promising really and the swatch is great and specially after you applied it. I wonder though it's staying power all day long? Have a great weekend.


Sadie said...

I've never heard of Milani cosmetics before, this blush looks so lovely though. I wouldn't want to use it and ruin that pretty rose pattern though ha ha :) xx

Rebeca Muñoz López said...

I'm glad you found a blush to your liking, also has a beautiful presentation! Have a nice weekend Kim! :)


Shabby, Chic, & Cheap said...

I don't think I have tried the Milani brand before but I have seen it in drug stores and beauty stores. I really think the shade of blush suits you and $7.99 for 5 hours of wear, can't really complain there.

I love how they have it shaped like a delicate rose. Very feminine and dainty.

Fräulein Schnee said...

This is such an adorable shape for a blush. Really love it. and the color is so pretty *_*

nancy @ adore to adorn said...

I've always wanted to try more Milani products but have not done so. I've only gone as far as their nail polish. Thanks for this review. So good to know. The pigment of that blush is so strong! I like that since a little product can go a long way! =)


Emmylou said...

We don't have Milani here, Kim, but I really wanted to try them so awhile back, I bought one when I was active in a makeup forum and this girl was selling some eyeshadows. I love love love them. I really can't wait to buy some more from this line. And I like how you took the pics with two different lighting:)

Mary Jo said...

I like the coral color, especially on your skin tone, it looks a bit powdery for my skin (which is already dry) but that flower detail is so pretty! Have a wonderful weekend!

I can see what you mean by chalky texture but once again you found a blush with a really pretty and intense color! I've been looking for a pink like this for ages!

Natalia | Fashioned by Love said...

flysongbird said...

i need to learn how to put on blush. i feel like i have done it correctly and then would feel clownish. i love the rose imprint on the blush.

Amicia Rai said...

The rose look on the blush is amazing! :D
However, if it is a bit chalky then I don't think that my skin would like it at all because it's kinda dry... :/
Thanks for the lovely review! ^_^

BerryBloomXO said...

It looks so lovely on you, beautiful! I love the packaging - the rose looks stunning! Not everything is going to be perfect, but for the price it looks worth it!
I love the coral colour shown in the images and wish Milani was sold in the UK!

I am really impressed with the level of pigment and the length of wear for a drugstore brand. And the color is really pretty on you--- perfect for spring!

it looks lovely doll :) xx


This is very intersting, I've not used this but only recently heard the brand through Ellesees' blog. I think this shade looks great on you, and the pigment is very rich in colour. Gorgeous! Lovely review Kim! :)

Dale Janee said...

I've been hearing all about this but haven't tried it yet. (They sent me a sample to CA so I will soon hehe) but I'm glad I read your review to go light. I love the rose colored shape, but it does look like it could go on heavy if you're not careful. The shade is really pretty on you though!! Nice review Kim
