Budget Beauty Tuesday: Editor’s Picks-Milani Romantic Rose Blush & Matte Blissful Lipstick



Finding neutral blush colors and nude lipstick with a pink undertone can be somewhat daunting when you have brown skin. Add  in yellow undertones to that equation and the odds of finding a suitable color match grows. Well, I’m fortunate in that I found a gorgeous duo of neutral pink blush and a matte pink lipstick that works for me, and I think would work for almost anyone. Needless to say, for Budget Beauty Tuesday, these colors come from one of  our favorite brands — Milani.

Here are the details about Milani Romantic Rose Blush $8.49:

Milani Romantic Rose BlushWhat it is:

An ultra silky-soft powder blush that helps deliver the perfect amount of color and easily blends onto cheeks.  Gorgeous in the compact, even prettier on cheeks, this petal soft, natural-finish powder shapes, contours and highlights.  Streaks?  Never.  Easy to use?  Always.  In ultra-flattering shades that you just can’t live without.

  • Gorgeous Compact
  • Petal Soft, Natural Finish
  • Ultra-Flattering Shades

How to use: 

Glide a brush through the color and lightly tap off excess powder. Lightly apply to cheeks, forehead, chin and/or nose and blend well for a soft glow.

Why it’s an editor’s pick:

Milani Romantic Rose Blush is more than a blush — it’s an all over color that adds subtle glow and color. It’s so neutral in color that it can even be used to do a bit of contour to the face. I have reviewed Milani Rose Blushes before, and they are beautiful, matte, long-wearing and full of pigment, making them a wonderful choice for brown skin. Not to mention how pretty they are in the compact!

How to use:

Why it’s an editor’s pick:

I have to admit that when I saw this pink in the tube, I thought I could never pull it off. And even after seeing myself in it, I wasn’t totally convinced.  Then I posted my photo on Instagram and I got so many compliments, so what do I know? Well, I do know this — this lipstick is matte, but not drying. It is smooth and creamy and lasts for hours. Plus, the color you see in the tube, is the color you get on your lips.

Pro: Matte, moisturizing, creamy, great pigment

Con: None

Price: $5.49

Buy Again: Yes

Packaging: 5 Blings — I love that the bottom of the tube shows you the color of the lipstick
