Milani Dolce Pink Blush
A Glowing Pink for Your Cheeks
Milani Dolce Pink Blush ($7.49 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium pink with gold shimmer. Tom Ford Frantic Pink has a similar look, but it is more matte. MAC Stunner is a bit cooler-toned and has less shimmer. MAC Mighty Aphrodite has a similar coloring to the underlying pink color but not the golden shimmer. NARS Outlaw is darker, more plum. NARS Orgasm is similar.
Milani’s Baked Blush is supposed to have a silky smooth application with a luminous finish. I think the formula is fairly comparable to MAC’s Mineralize Blush formula, so if you like that formula or you’ve always wanted to try it but haven’t wanted to pay MAC prices, you might try this range. Dolce Pink has a fair amount of gold shimmer, and it is soft and applies fairly smoothly. The shimmer does accentuate the size of pores a little bit (and I find this is true with MAC’s Mineralize range), but it gives a nice glow from the golden shimmer that looks more like a sheen when applied. Dolce Pink wore for six hours well, and after seven, there was some noticeable fading along the edges.
