Hello all, I bring to you the Milani illuminating powder, I bought this last month as I was looking for an affordable highlighter for next month. I saw good reviews but obviously need to test it myself. I was unsure of what shade to get especially as it looked pink I’m the photo. So I opted for 03 Beauty’s touch.
It looked gorgeous when I received it the other week on my hand it’s not very easy to see but there is a shimmer there, this is deceiving as when I actually applied this to the tops of my cheek bones I found the pink came through more than the shimmer, which then made me look like I doubled up on blush.
The packaging for this product is gorgeous, the gold packaging makes it look a little more up market in my opinion. This product cost me about £5.99 which is super inexpensive for any of you looking to not spend a fortune. This brand is not sold in any shops in England so I had to purchase mine online with Amazon, which is easy anyway… I am a bit addicted to Amazon ( you will find that out a lot).
XI have applied this using the blush brush by Real techniques, only problem is that to get any pigment I have to really swirl my brush around before I can apply, at the moment I am just using it as a blush as i find on my complexion it appears quite pink even with a small amount, but it is more subtle, giving a natural dewy complexion which is great if you want a fresh faced look for every day. The shade may be better for darker skin tones, if you have a different result please leave a comment below.
I don’t think I will purchase this again as its not a highlighter but more a blush. It is a beautiful shade but I would rather it have more of a shine and less colour next time. I would recommend it as a blush for you all as its super affordable and does give a lovely finish to the cheeks.
