This ongoing post contains swatches of Milani Baked Blushes (Bella Bellini, Bella Rosa, Bellissimo Bronze, Berry Amore, Corallina, Delizioso Pink, Dolce Pink, Luminoso, Rosa Romantica, Rose d’Oro) and Rose Powder Blushes (Coral Cove, Romantic Rose, and Tea Rose).
I will update this post with any new Milani blush swatches, as well.
These blushes are awesome, period! It’s just a bonus that they come pretty cheap, as well. Granted, the packaging leaves a bit to be desired, but when I pick these up at a little over CA$6 a pop on sale, I’m not complaining!
These are a bit shimmery for blushes; out of all of mine, only Bella Rosa and Delizioso Pink are matte. Luminoso is not overly shimmery. Bellissimo Bronze is sparkle city.
Berry Amore, Corallina and the legendary Luminoso are my faves. Admittedly, I have been too chicken to try Bella Rosa, yet!
This silky blush with benefits can be used so many ways. It shapes, it contours, it highlights. Sunbaked on Italian terracotta tiles, it’s buildable from sheer to vibrant. Yes, it adds a cheeky pop of colour to your complexion. Radiance and warmth, too.
The included mirror and brush (not very good! I’d recommend using your own blush brush):
Baked Blush — Bella Rosa (11).
Baked Blush — Bellissimo Bronze (06).
This is more shimmery in person! The sparkles got washed out in the photo.

Rose Powder Blush
Milani only just released these in 2015, I believe,2014. I just got them recently so I haven’t been able to give a review. They seem a little chalky compared with the Baked Blushes, though. But I almost don’t care how they perform—they’re so pretty! Heh! (The lid for Romantic Rose was a little stuck, though, so I ended up jabbing my fingernail into its surface after I took the photos. Sadness.)
Unlike the Baked Blushes, these do not have a mirror and brush included in the packaging. Gotta say I much prefer the packaging of the Rose Powder Blushes, though. Much slimmer and prettier.
Now this is a blush that deserves to be seen! Gorgeous in the compact, even prettier on cheeks, this petal soft, natural-finish powder shapes, contours and highlights. Streaks? Never. Easy to use? Always. In ultra-flattering shades that you just can’t live without.
Rose Powder Blush — Coral Cove (05).
The swatch is actually much brighter in person; it has a touch of neon vibrancy to it and my camera didn’t capture it well (kind of the way neon nail polishes get washed out in photos). Coral Cove isn’t actually neon, mind you. Just bright!
Rose Powder Blush — Romantic Rose (01).
Rose Powder Blush — Tea Rose (08).
