Not sure if I got a bad one but it was a bit too orange toned for me. I also found it really temperamental. Sometimes it would apply well, others it looked patchy.

This is a warm peach shade which still manages to be subtle and not look orange on your cheeks. It's beautiful on a neutral or warm fair/light/light-plus skin tone. It's a cult classic for a reason. The finish is softly glowy/dewy while not having any obvious shimmer particles. The texture is not dusty/powdery. It's smooth and buildable. This blush creates a tone on your cheeks which looks like a natural warm flush. I am a warm-toned fair redhead and this blush looks great on me.

Skin Tone: Very Light - Undertone: Peach

I bought this because it's oft discussed as a dupe for NARS Orgasm, and because I like my Milani Bella Bellini blush a lot. This is a great true peach blush with gold shimmer, great pigmentation, very soft formula. That said, it's not really that similar to the famed NARS shade (I heard that a discontinued Milani blush called "Luminous", not Luminoso, might be the dupe people are thinking of), and I like the pink-peach of Bella Bellini a bit better.

This blush is amazing. I will admit I originally purchased it because rumor had it Luminoso was a dupe for Nars Orgasm. That would be a lie. Luminoso is nothing like Orgasm and to be honest I prefer Luminoso. It is a beautiful warm peach color that shimmers slightly. It is very flattering and quite buildable. I am very "flat" but this blush brings my face to life! I strongly recommend everyone try it once. If you hate it you can always return it but chances are you will love it.

This blush goes with me where ever I travel. Its so user friendly and such a perfect peachy shade that it's hard to go wrong with it. It hasn't once crumbled or done anything wonky, this is a consistent staple in my makeup bag and even better, it's affordable!
