1st Impressions: Limited Edition Milani Roses Powder Blush

11:16 PM

I was late getting my hands on the Milani Baked Blushes but now own 8 of the 9. Ever since, I've been hoping that Milani would release another collection of baked blushes & shadows. I recently received a press release on their latest collection, Roses Powder Blushes. I knew that they weren't baked but I hoped that I would like them as much. Add to that, the fact that less than 24 hours after Milani sent out the notice announcing the release of the Roses Blushes, they sent out another notice explaining that the Roses Blushes had already sold out on their website.  

This evening when I went into my local Walgreens I stumbled across the Limited Edition Milani Roses Blushes display. There are 4 shades in the collection - 3 more matte-satin and one shimmer.  They are pressed to give a rose bud appearance.  I've always loved these textured/patterned compacts that so many cosmetic companies release.  They are almost too pretty to use. I also appreciate the packaging. With other Milani blushes, many complained/commented on the bulky packaging and useless brush.  with this collection the compact is sleek and the omit the brush that no one used anyway. Good Move Milani!

I spent a good few minutes trying to decide which shades I wanted. I walked away with 3 of the four.  
The first is Romantic Rose which is a pale dusty rose color with no shimmer. I wouldn't call it chalky but maybe a little powdery. Although the feel is soft and velvety. 

Next is Flora Passion, which is a warmer, more coraly-pink rose. Also a matte finish. 

The next is Warm Petals. Probably the first of the collection to catch my eye. It's a warm bronze with a golden shimmer. Now that I've swatched it, I thinking it might end up as a highligher...like a need another highligher.

Last in this collection is Bella Rosa, the only shade I did not purchase. I just didn't think it would compliment my skin tone.  It is a dusty bubblegum pink matte.

Yes, these are pretty blushes, but my 1st impression is still uncertain  They may be too light for my NW43 skin tone. I will be using them for several days before giving my final opinion but I will say to Milani, roses come in many other gorgeous shades that would make wonderful blushes-a deeper red, berry, purple or magenta, would be a good start.

So if you are intrigued by the Milani Roses Powder Blush collection, make a fast run, because remember, this is a Limited Edition collection.  They are available at Select Walgreens, CVS, Meijer, & Fried Meyer stores.  They retail for $6.49 each and contains 0.60 oz/17 g.

Have you spotted these blushes yet? Which shade is calling to you the most?
Grace, Peace, & Blessings.
