Milani Cosmetics: Best Drugstore Makeup Brand

If you’re looking to get affordable yet highly pigmented blushes available in a variety of shades to suit all skin tones, Milani Cosmetics might just be right up your alley.

Launched in 2002 and currently one of the top selling brands in the mass market, Milani Cosmetics offer a range of products that are all made from Italy, from eye shadows, eyeliners to pressed powders and more, but the top- and best-selling products will have to be their Baked Powder Blush and Baked Bronzer. Take a look at this great video by Allura Beauty where she shows you swatches!


Made popular thanks to YouTube make-up vlogger KathleenLights’ video on her Top 10 Drugstore Makeup Products, Milani’s Baked Powder Blush in Luminoso 05 contours and highlights well, and the best part is that you can build up the sheer/finish depending on preference thanks to its terracotta-like warm hue. Milani’s two other blushers are the Rose Blush and Limited Edition Rose Blush (only available this summer of 2015)—both come in beautiful rose-petal shaped compacts with three different flattering colours per item.

With 31 delectable shades of satin, matte, iridescent, shimmer and more, this eyeshadow can be used wet or dry according to your preference.

Another HG product with makeup artists/vloggers and our Shoppers is their Baked Bronzer—a shimmery swirled bronzer with marble design that comes in Gold, Soleil and Golden (light to dark). Find a light peach/brown shade with a subtle gold shimmer that you can double up as an eyeshadow due to its excellent colour pay-off.
