Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer in Hula Hula – review & swatches


I purchased  this bronzer with the sole purpose of using it as a highlighter. It is absolutely gorgeous. I use is a few times a week. This bronzer is baked on a terracotta pan to create a beautiful domed product. Hula Hula gives the complexion a hint of bronzed color for a sun-kissed look. This bronzer appears to be shimmery or dewy but is actually matte so it does not make the skin appear shiny when applied. One just glows. This is gorgeous on tanned to dark skin. It is soft and blends easily into the skin. It typically retails for $9.00 and can be found almost everywhere even the grocery store.

Review: Milani Baked Blush Collection Part 3

Milani Baked Blush Collection Part 3 (see Part 1 and  Part 2
From top to bottom & left to right: #7 Fantastico Mauve, #8 Corallina, #9 Red Vino

These three are absolutely gorgeous!!!!!!! can you see how lovely these are? Unlike the others these three have much a smoother, softer formulation, as such they glide on and the shimmer/glitter doesn’t fallout as much. They are very pigmented and compliments darker skin tones very well.

Overall this collection is gorgeous despite the not so good packaging. The blush itself is only 3.5g and even at it’s highest price of $8.99 in some drugstore is worth it.

Review: Milani Baked Blush Collection Part 1

Milani Blush Collection (all 9 blushes) flash – top and no flash – bottom
From top to bottom & left to right: #1 Dolce Pink, #2 Rose D’Oro, #3 Berry Amore

These blushes have shimmer that could be a bit messy if not applied with the proper brush, but can be blended out. A bit ‘ashy & chalky’ against my skin tone but could work when a light flush is needed. I think I’d have to use these with a very light hand. Stay tune for Part 2.
