You may already know this, but I am a bit of a blush fiend, I love blush which is funny because only a few years ago I wouldn't ever wear it, I have a very pink undertone to my skin and I always thought that wearing blush would make me look even more pink, giving me that just slapped look, so I shied away from it until only a few years ago when I realised that wearing foundation and concealer actually gave me a nice blank canvas and although I do have a pink tone to my skin, blush actually looks nice and doesn't make me look like I've been slapped.
For Christmas one of my lovely friends bought me the Milani Rose Powder Blush in the shade Tea Rose 08, she knows how much I love blush and this shade is right up my street, it is perfect for me. I have seen the Milani Rose Powder Blushes on blog posts and always thought they looked stunning so I was so thrilled to receive my own and it is absolutely beautiful.
The packaging of the blush is lovely, it comes in a pretty gold compact with a clear lid with the Milani logo and "powder blush" in gold.
On the back of the compact is the name and number of the blush and the ingredients.
The lid of the compact is transparent so the blush is clearly visible through the lid but once you open the compact you can see how stunning the blush actually is, it is absolutely beautiful.
The blush has a raised floral design and is very pretty indeed, it is so pretty I worried that as soon as I began using the blush the pattern would wear down but so far it hasn't and I have used it quite a few times.
Tea Rose is a beautiful soft pink shade with cool undertones and has a matte finish, matte blushers are my favourite blush finish, I like to wear a matte blush and then highlight on the tops of my cheekbones and this blush is perfect, it is the perfect shade for me and I love that it's matte and it is also extremely pigmented so a light hand is most definitely needed when applying the blush.
The blush applies well, I use a light hand as it is very pigmented, the blush has quite a powdery texture but isn't chalky at all it feels lovely and smooth on my skin and lasts really all day without fading. There is a massive 17g of product in the blush which is a brilliant amount, for comparison purposes a standard MAC blush contains 6g of product, so the Milani blush contains an impressive amount of product.
The Milani Tea Rose blush is absolutely stunning and I adore it, not only is it aesthetically pleasing but it is beautiful on the skin too and compliments many different makeup looks and lip shades, it is a blush I can wear all year round and one I know is going to get a lot of wear since I have worn it so much already.
If you would like to purchase the Milani Tea Rose blush or one of the other available shades of the Rose Powder blushers, you can find them on the Beauty Bay website HERE priced at £9.00 (17g).
