When these blushes first came out in 2013 they were limited edition and were scarfed up by the masses. Thankfully, now they’re a permanent part of the Milani line and have included a few new shades. I have two of them — Romantic Rose which was part of that original LE collection and Coral Cove, one of the new shades.
And they are FABULOUS.
As you can see, Coral Cove is a gorgeous, pigmented Coral Shade. It has enough pink in it that it’s not too warm/orange for my skin, but is definitely coral. It’s incredibly pigmented and not powdery when applied.
Here we have Coral Cove on the Right and Romantic Rose on the left. Romantic Rose is a mauve-tinged dusty pink. It’s the shade that for me, goes with everything. It’s definitely the blush I grab when I don’t want to think about what blush to wear — a total no-brainer of a color.
Both of these shades apply easily — they’re soft but not powdery — you won’t kick up a lot of dust in the pan when you pick up the color. They blend out well and last a good 6-9 hours before fading slightly. I think both are easily pigmented enough and rich enough to look great on a wide variety of skin tones and at the price of $7.99, they’re certainly cheap enough to grab a few! And while I hate to be a sucker for packaging, I’m very pleased when “low-end” lines take such care to make a beautiful looking item. The deeply embossed rose pattern is just gorgeous and makes the product feel a lot more expensive than it is!
Here I am wearing Coral Cove.
If you’re looking for a new and easy blush, I don’t think you can go wrong with either of these shades. They’re sold at Milani’s website and wherever Milani is sold.
