Milani Luminoso Baked Powder Blush Review and Swatches

Milani Luminoso Baked Blush
Purchased by Tamara

Product Description

Price/Quantity: $8 for 3.5 grams
Availability: Milani’s Website, Target, Walmart, Fred Meyer, Walgreens
Color Range: 8 Shades
Color/Finish: Luminoso is a satiny light peach. Depending on the light though it can either appear more pinkish or more orange.
Packaging: The blush is packaged in a fairly thick plastic compact with the product name and shade labeled on the back. The top portion of the compact contains the dome-shaped blush and underneath that is a mirror and a flat brush. The compact stays shut securely and I haven’t had any issues with it breaking. The brush has a blunt end and densely-packed bristles that are a little scratchy. I wouldn’t use it on a daily basis but in a pinch it would be okay.
Smell: I don’t smell any fragrance but I can smell a barely-there powdery smell.


Application: Applies evenly and smoothly and blends out nicely. Be careful though. It is deceivingly light colored but very highly pigmented so it can be over applied more easily than you would think.
Pigmentation: Highly pigmented but easy to apply with a light hand. The satin finish gives a nice glow to the cheeks without being glittery or frosty looking.
Texture: Super smooth and blendable. Not powdery or crumbly.
Longevity: 8+ hours. In all the times I’ve worn this I’ve never had it fade on me.

Overall Opinion


  • Highly pigmented
  • Smooth texture
  • Easily blendable
  • Long lasting
  • Affordable


  • Packaging is quite bulky

Worth buying? Yes. Truth be told, I’m not a huge fan of drugstore blushes in general but the Milani Baked Powder Blushes are some of the best ones out there. This particular shade is extremely popular in the beauty world because it works on such a wide variety of skintones and it’s not too shimmery or too matte. It does lean a bit warmer so keep that in mind when pairing it with lip and eye colors.
