Review | Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso


The Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso is probably one of the most talked about affordable blushes in the beauty community, and for good reason. It is a gorgeous peachy blush that adds a beautiful glow to the cheeks. The glow it provides comes from very finally milled shimmer, as opposed to the chunkier glitter that some blushes have running through them . It applies smoothly and blends out easily with minimal effort. I usually use something like the Sigma Large Angled Contour F40 to apply it to the apples of my cheeks and blend it towards my hairline. As this blush is shimmery I don’t apply a highlight to my cheekbones, this highlights the cheeks nicely on its own.


This blush will suit a variety of skin tones and can be built up for a more intense colour, or sheered out for a more subtle look. I find I can wear Luminoso with almost any makeup look, it looks perfect paired with a bronzed goddess inspired look – this is my favourite way to wear it. A little goes a long way with this product so I can see it lasting me a long time. It is definitely a makeup staple for me, especially in the summer.

The Milani Baked Blushes come in a variety of different colours, so if a peachy blush is not your thing then there are plenty of other colours to choose from. I am eyeing up ones of the pink shades next.

Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso retails for £6 and is available here.

  1. Great post! I’ve been planning to get this shade of blush for quite sometime now but with having to buy online only I’m forever forgetting what and where I want to purchase things from since we don’t have a lot of brands readily avaliable in stores here in New Zealand, that or it costs at least double the price! Thanks for sharing your awesome review. Hope you are having a lovely week 🙂

    • Hi Cynta

      Thank you for your comment. I know what you mean about forgetting what you want to buy online, I do that a lot. I have heard that a lot of brands cost so much more in New Zealand, it’s such a shame. The blush is so lovely though, I would definitely recommend it.
