Be still my heart! Milani has done it again and this time, these gorgeous shades are ready for your Fall 2015 looks. It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the Milani Rose Powder blushes, so much so that I practically own every single one available. These gorgeously embossed beauties are favorites in my collection and these two new addictions are no different. If you haven’t seen them hit your stores yet, you will be seeing three gorgeous Limited Edition Rose Powder blush shades. I currently own two of the three shades available and I wanted to share these with you.
The two colors I have added to my collection are Awakening Rose (10) and Blossomtime Rose (11). Awakening Rose is a Dusty Rose pink that has light silver shimmer that adds a subtle highlight and glisten to the cheeks. The shimmer in this shade is iridescent and depending on the highlight I’m using that day – though it looks silver in the pan, it can create a soft golden hue on my cheekbones. Blossomtime Rose which is my favorite out of the two is a Peachy Pink blush with Golden Pearl shimmer. This particular blush is gorgeous and has been my favorite to add a little peachy blush golden hue to my skin.
The packaging is gorgeous… absolutely stunning and what has me swooning over them each time Milani rolls out a new set. I was so bummed when I dropped one of them when photographing these and my finger nail scrapped it up. The embossing lasts quite a while with lots of use… I have several blushes I use consistently and I’m barely putting a dent in the embossing.
Each blush retails for $7.99 and includes a Net. Wt. 0.60oz/17g. You get a lot of product for the money and I love how the blushes feel against my skin and how pigmented they are. The only downside to these is the Talc which is included in the ingredients, but I haven’t noticed any issues with my skin when using these and since I own at least 10 of them, that speaks volumes for how much I enjoy these. Using a large powder brush or a stippling brush will apply these colors nicely on the cheeks. They are a little powdery but a quick dusting of your brush prior to application and you are good to go.

These gorgeous beauties should be arriving at a Walgreens near you soon or they are also available at Milanicosmetics.com. Many of the Rose Powder blushes available in past collections were more matte, which I love – but I also enjoy the fact that these offer a light shimmer and iridescence so they add a little extra highlight against the skin. I think I found a few new faves now that I have gotten my hands on these… Warm Petals (no longer available) has been a favorite for over a year, and I think Blossomtime and Awakening Rose have now stolen the show.
Have you seen these beauties in your local stores yet? Have you tried any of the Rose Powder blushes from Milani? If so – what are your thoughts?
