Game Changer Series Vol.4: When Nikki Met Milani

Milani Berry Amore

This is usually how it goes when I find myself strolling in between booths of any bazaar I head to. Aside from stopping by the usual local clothes, shoes, swimwear brands I am familiar with, I make it a point to spare some cash and visit the local beauty sellers to get my fix on brands not available in department stores.

Like Milani, Rimmel, Nyx — back when it was not yet available in the Philippines, NYC, etc. My point is, it was in one of these bazaars that I was introduced to my first baked blush from Milani and let me tell you, it was love up until now.

The Experience:

Milani Baked Blushes are housed in a somewhat bulky, golden plastic compact. There is a separate compartment for the blush and another for the mirror and a brush, which I find to be too scratchy for my liking. Doesn’t affect how I feel about the blush though. Now let’s get to that.

Berry Amore is described as a rose berry with gold shimmer. It started out as exactly that, a rosy blush with a hint of berry in it and gold shimmer — I still remember however years ago that was because it was such a glorious find. But as time passed by, the berry disappeared. I don’t know, maybe the makeup gods were smiling down at me when I purchased it or something, because I swear that everytime I wear it, it looks more like a rosy coral to me. You’ll see on my swatch below. Tell me if it’s just me but I really, really swear! I cannot be happier that I got this compact in particular.

I don’t fancy blushes with gold shimmers in them because from my experience, they accentuate my pores and look annoying whenever I get too oily — case in point, the NARS Orgasm blush. But not this one because my pores are not emphasized, I don’t look extra oily in the afternoon and the shimmer? It’s not too obvious on me. It’s actually subtle and gives me a nice glow. I reach for this particular shade amongst my stash when I’m in a mood for some highlighter lovin’ and I’m too lazy to use a separate highlighter.

Does it look coral-y to you?

I’m giving Berry Amore a two thumbs up! Can’t wait to try the other shades. Right now, I’m trying to find a way to get my hands on the 2 newest baked blushes, Bella Rosa and Delizioso Pink. They’re matte! How amazing is that?

Do you feel the same way about the Milani Baked Blushes?
