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.
