Milani Baked Blush in Berry Amore


Milani Baked Blushes are a thing of beauty. Their marbled look and textured shimmer make them the cheap version of the coveted Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes.

Luminoso has been a favorite of mine since I discovered it. I wasn’t sure which color to try next and then Mac’s Warm Soul had a spotlight moment on the interwebs. Berry Amore is supposedly a dupe for Warm Soul so I decided to try it out instead since it is the more affordable option.



NYX Baked Shadow in Shira


NYX prices are always convincing. For $5.99 this eye shadow seemed like a shimmery dream.  Especially after seeing it used in a YouTube tutorial, I thought that it was going to be pigmented, shimmery and worth the price.

After trying to use it several times wet, dry, with a brush and with my fingers, there has just been no salvaging this shadow.  I can barely get it to show up.  I am usually not this disappointed with NYX.

For 6 bucks I would rather buy a Makeup Geek eye shadow.
