Milani Bella Rosa Matte Baked Blush Review

Milani isn’t all about awesome lipsticks and gloss. They’re pretty good at making blush too! I’ve been a fan of their baked blushes for quite some time so I was really excited when Milani decided to add some matte colors to the line. I really hope to see some new shades soon because I’m loving the formula so far!

Milani Bella Rosa features the typical Milani blush packaging design. It’s housed in an all gold plastic casing that’s a little bulky but lightweight. The packaging appears to be pretty sturdy so far. It’s survived being tossed around in my makeup bag without any mishaps. I really like it!

Bella Rosa is a bright, vibrant matte fuchsia with a buttery soft texture and tons of pigment. I had to use a duo fiber brush and a very light hand when applying because it’s such an intense color. Bella Rosa is suitable for all shades but I highly recommend that lighter gals tread softly during application to avoid clown cheeks. Despite the extreme pigmentation Bella Rosa is still pretty easy to apply! Although the texture is very soft it isn’t powdery and the finish is very natural. It blends incredibly well and doesn’t accentuate any dry patches. Bella Rosa is also pretty long wearing for a baked blush. I get around 8 hours before I notice any signs of fading and even then it still looks pretty darn good. For $8 you definitely get a lot of bang for your buck! The quality is amazing and because Bella Rosa is so pigmented it’ll last you quite a long time. I totally recommend checking it out the next time you drop by your local drugstore. You won’t regret it!

    This is a beautiful blush! I have this also and I applied wayyyy to much the first time. I learned my lesson. Lol

      I did exactly the same LOL! I knew it would be pigmented but I really wasn’t expecting it to be so intense. I had to take my powder brush and really buff it out before I walked outside looking crazy. A little goes a very, very long way. Lesson learned lol
