Round-up: Milani Strobelight Instant Glow Powders

Milani Strobelight Instant Glow Powder
Milani Strobelight Instant Glow Powder

Milani Afterglow Strobelight Instant Glow Powder ($10.00 for 0.30 oz.) is powder highlighter that’s supposed to have a “radiant finish” and is available in seven shades. The consistency was similar to a lot of other “gelee” highlighters: smooth, soft but more firmly pressed (where there was no powderiness but was still pigmented) with semi-opaque to opaque coverage and a frosted to a metallic finish. Some shades emphasized my skin’s natural texture slightly when worn heavily. This formula will be most suitable for someone who likes an intense, more metallic highlighter and warmer-toned shades.

Sunglow

Milani Sunglow Strobelight Instant Glow Powder ($10.00 for 0.30 oz.) is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation–just shy of full coverage–that was buildable to full coverage by patting on just a touch more product. The texture was smooth to the touch, soft and blendable without being powdery in the pan, and sat well on the skin except when worn at full coverage, then it emphasized my skin’s texture ever-so-slightly. On my skin, the highlighter wore well for eight hours before fading.

The formula is powder highlighter that’s supposed to have a “radiant finish” and is available in seven shades (you can view swatches of all shades here). The consistency was similar to a lot of other “gelee” highlighters: smooth, soft but more firmly pressed (where there was no powderiness but was still pigmented) with semi-opaque to opaque coverage and a frosted to a metallic finish. Some shades emphasized my skin’s natural texture slightly when worn heavily. This formula will be most suitable for someone who likes an intense, more metallic highlighter and warmer-toned shades.

Milani Glowing Strobelight Instant Glow Powder ($10.00 for 0.30 oz.) is a medium copper with a warm, golden sheen. It had opaque color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin, blended out easily, and had a high-shine finish. I found it accentuated the look of my skin’s natural texture slightly when worn at nearly full coverage. The powder had a smooth consistency that was soft but not powdery in the pan. The highlighter started to fade on me after eight hours of wear.

Milani Afterglow Strobelight Instant Glow Powder ($10.00 for 0.30 oz.) is a very light peach with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, but if I used a lighter touch, I was able to get sheerer coverage that applied and blended out well. It was also forgiving enough that I could diffuse and buff out the highlighter if I felt like I applied more than I needed (or wanted). The consistency was soft enough that it was easy to pick up the product onto my brush while being firm enough that there was no powderiness in the pan. It was blendable and did not appear dry or chalky on the skin. There was a moderate sheen on the skin at medium or greater coverage that did not accentuate my skin’s texture. The highlighter stayed on well for eight hours on my skin.

Bella Bellini

Milani Bella Bellini Baked Blush ($8.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and gold shimmer. It had buildable pigmentation from medium to mostly opaque.

The Baked Blush formula is described as “richly pigmented and highly buildable” (that’s not confusing at all, right?)–it would make more sense to say something like “buildable from sheer to full coverage.” That is more in line with how they used to describe the formula when I reviewed shades from the range last year, but they have since changed it to what I’ve included here. I’m not aware of any reformulation in the last year, I feel it’s fair to take their meaning as “highly buildable” to “richly pigmented” payoff.

The consistency was smooth, slightly dusty, but it blended out nicely on the skin and did not appear powdery once buffed and worked into the skin. The blush had a very strong sheen, which slightly emphasized my skin’s natural texture when worn at semi-opaque or higher coverage. The color started to fade noticeably after seven and a half hours of wear.
