Milani HD Lip color & Baked Blush Swatches!

Hello there! I have recently become a fan of Milani Cosmetics on Facebook. The perks of being a Milani Facebook Fan are great: I have managed to win 2 of their recent giveaways. They first gave away thousands of their baked blushes in the shade Terra Sole. Then they gave away thousands of their HD Lip Colors. What I liked about the lip color giveaway was that you could select the shade you wanted. Not the exact shade, but the color family you wanted. I chose pinks/corals, and ended up with a surprise...

Here are my two FULL SIZED products that I got just for clicking a button:

Milani Baked Blush in Terra Sole:

This color is a bit dark. It actually could function as a bronzer for some skin tones. I haven't yet tried it as bronzer, only a blush. The back of the packaging says that the blush "shapes, contours, and highlights" so I guess this one is good for shaping and contouring! I like the smooth texture of this blush. A little goes a long way! The packaging has 2 compartments: the top is the blush, and then the bottom houses a mirror and brush. The brush isn't very functional. But it could work well with a highlighting color, or use it as a fan brush to sweep away fall out. I do like this blush, just not the right shade for me! I really want to try out Corallina and Luminouso.

Milani HD Lip Color in Vivacious Fuchsia:

When I selected Pinks/Corals as my lip color, I was expecting a more nude or rosey pink. Or even a nice coral shade. What did I receive? A straight-up-bright-as-the-sun fuchsia color! At first, I was upset because I felt like I'd never be able to wear this color. But then I realized, that the only lip colors I own are neutral pinks and a few reds. I have nothing like this color in my mini lippie collection. So now I've accepted this new color. I'll only wear it on certain occasions, but I do like this! The color is so pigmented and creamy! It applies like a dream! As for lasting power, I can't vouch for this product. I have yet to wear this for a long period of time. I do have a problem with the packaging. It's nice and sleek. But I have to twist the tube multiple times to make the product pop up. Once it's twisted up, it won't go back down! So I have to only twist up a minimal amount of product. But other than that, this is a great product!

I was usually the last to receive my goodies, but I was so pleased with how well they were packaged! I was so afraid my lipstick would melt sitting in the 100+ degree mailbox, however it survived!
I am very happy that I "liked" Milani on Facebook! I look forward to more giveaways in the future, and hopefully I'll be just as lucky to win some more free goodies! I highly recommend liking their page!

Have a lovely day!
