Milani Delizioso Pink (10) Baked Powder Blush ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a cool-toned, light-medium pink with strong blue undertones and a mostly matte finish. Tarte Dollface (P, $26.00) is lighter, less blue-based. Urban Decay Quickie (LE) is brighter. MAC Pure Femininity (LE, $20.00) is pinker. MAC Peony Petal (LE, $21.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

This is one of two (the second I will be reviewing shortly!) new, matte blushes for spring. It’s intensely pigmented, so you’ll want to reach for less dense brushes and use a lighter hand if you tend to be heavy handed with blush and/or you have a fairer complexion. On my medium skin tone, just knowing not to go full-force with the blush brush yielded a soft, natural application that was just enough to show up on my skin tone. I would expect this to show up more blue-based if you have naturally cooler undertones, but even my warmer complexion didn’t completely swallow up the undertones of this one (which I like!). The texture is incredibly soft and finely-milled, and the blush blends fairly well, though it’s not the most blendable formula. I would make sure to go with a softer application, then build up the color, rather than rely on blending it away. It wore well for eight hours, which was a surprise, given it is a baked formula, before it showed signs of fading.

Looks really fresh on your complexion! 😀

I’m always fascinated by closeups of products – like especially the surfaces of blushes and eyeshadows and things… *stares at closeup photo* 🙂

This looks so pretty and spring-like! I wish they’d expand the shade range to include more matte or satin shades, as those are certainly easy to wear.

Hi Amayah!

I’ve realllllly been enjoying Milani’s drugstore offerings so far – the Color Statement Lipsticks completely blew my mind and I wear one almost everyday. These new blushes look equally lovely and I’m quite excited for the other one – Bella Rosa – as I think that that one may have more of an impact on my darker skintone. Eagerly awaiting your review Christine!

Definitely Sangria, Uptown Mauve, Naturally Chic, High Voltage and Teddy Bare! (Not forgetting Violet Volt for a little something-something extra when I’m feeling courageous!) 😀

Now, to actually *find* this one in stores…

I don’t have anything quite so “pink”, and at this pricepoint, I think it’s worth a try. Not that I need any more blush, but it’s different enough to justify picking it up, yet it still falls in within my preferred range. Plus, I like that it doesn’t seem like more “traditional” matte finishes, which can look a bit flat.

Since Target replaced Milani with NYX, it’s been a bit HTF. However, my local Walgreen’s appears to be revamping the cosmetics section, and getying more stuff, so fingers crossed!

MAC’s Mineralize Blushes/Skinfinishes don’t dry out my skin, though they tend to emphasize pores and fade faster on me. I think this blush is a lot smoother, and it definitely wears better on me – plus, no pigmentation problems! Hope that helps! xo

No worries! The MSF Natural seemed to have given me milia back in the day, and it’s possible the others did too, but MSFN was the only product I wore long enough to be sure. I don’t have problems with milia any more (and haven’t for some years), so it’s equally possible that no products did it!

Oh, I just love your reviews! I picked up Bella Rosa a couple of hours ago. It is beautiful! It took a fair amount of restraint not to wash off all my current makeup in order to try it on right away. 😉 I would have brought this one home with me too if it had been in stock. It looks so pretty on you, Christine.

Oh my goodness. This blush is so on my to-buy list! I would love to see more shades in the matte range and something more in the coral family/warmer shades as opposed to this extreme end of pink. It’s such a beautiful colour though and looks amazing on you!

This looks like a slightly less blue version of Chanel’s very famous and long-gone Turbulent Joues Contraste, Lisa Eldridge’s favourite blush ever. (Also supposedly similar to Bobbi Brown Pale Pink.)

I need it.
