Happy Monday glamour babes! Today I wanted to talk about Milani’s Color Harmony Blush ($13.00 for 0.30oz). Walgreens was having a buy two get one free sale on drugstore brand cosmetics, which I believe is still going on thru the 23rd. So you still have time if you’d like to stock up on some of your makeup favorites, wink.
I was actually trying to find Wet n Wild’s Mermaid Collection, but alas it was sold out. Sigh. I did happen to find the next best thing though-The Color Harmony Blushes! Something I did want to try and review for awhile now.
I purchased three out of the four shades. Pink Play, Berry Rays, and Coral Beams. Bronze Burst was beautiful a looking bronzer, but looked a bit dark for my fair skin. Blushes tend to be more my thing during the fall anyway.
Berry Rays has warm rosy, mauve tones.
Coral Beams has warm peachy, pink coral tones.
Pink Play has cool blush toned pinks.
Each blush compact holds four color quadrants ranging in different shades. For some reason the fourth color (bottom) quadrant would not swatch for me whatsoever. This goes for all of the blushes I bought. They have a very waxy, slippery texture. Something I found odd with Milani. Usually their blushes have great pigmentation for swatch testing. I was a little disappointed considering these are not exactly cheap for a drugstore cosmetic brand.
The other shades in the compacts, however, are richly pigmented, buttery smooth, blendable, buildable, lightweight, and have a satin frosted finish, flattering most skin tones.
You can apply these shades individually to sculpt, shape and highlight your cheeks, or swirl them together to create a custom color.
I found that Coral Beams had the most pigmentation comparing to Pink Play and Berry Rays. I had to use a much denser blush brush and plenty of wrist power for those two. I didn’t mind. The extra reinforcement created a beautiful, soft, healthy glow to my cheeks with a pop of color!
The color payoff is outstanding. The Milani Color Harmony Blushes clung on for 8-9 hours, zero fading. That had me glowing with satisfaction.
I really enjoyed these blushes. I just think for the money, the quality could have been better. $13 is kind of extreme to pay for a drugstore blush that doesn’t deliver in my opinion. I would definitely wait for sales or coupons to grab a few of Milani’s Color Harmony Blushes if you’d like to try them. They are now available at Walgreens and MilaniCosmetics.com.
Did you purchase any?
