On of the hottest drugstore makeup items this spring are the Limited Edition Rose Blushes from Milani. The Milani Rose Powder Blushes are available in four shades beginning March 2014 in Walgreen’s stores for a Limited Time.
*Tea Rose (shown)
These lovely rose shaped matte powder blushes feature rose petals that are micro-milled into the powder. Tea rose is a lovely delicate pink shade suitable for all skin tones. The powder is very light, but with buildable pigmentation. When I swatched on the back of my hand the color appeared very light. The intensity of the color can be controlled with the brush you use, for a very light wash of color I would go with a large fluffy blush brush. For more pigmented, controlled color use a smaller round blush brush. Even though I lightly swirled my brush over the top of the rose blush it picked up a lot of color, be sure to tap off the excess for even application. I found this particular shade to be soft but not chalky. Even on my oily skin this matte blush lasted my entire 8 hour work day and still looked exactly the same as when I did my makeup in the morning, it did not wear off at all.
I missed out on these last year and have been stalking all the Walgreen’s stores in my area for them this year, so far no luck. Have you spotted these blushes in your area yet?
