Review: Milani Cosmetics

Milani is one of my favourite makeup brands, and their products were some of the first I bought when I started getting into makeup. I recently was lucky enough to be sent some products to try out from Milani, and I have been wearing and testing them out non-stop. Now I am here to share the newest additions to my Milani collection, and my thoughts on each!

Conceal + Perfect 2 in 1 Foundation and Concealer
I have wanted to try this foundation for the longest time, so I was so excited to see it included! It comes in a glass bottle with a pump, which is convenient. The foundation itself is thick and creamy, but spreads well across the skin and blends easily. I use this as mainly just a foundation, but also sometimes as a concealer. To apply as a concealer, I apply it all over my face as a foundation, then add extra dots on areas that need concealing, and blend out. I find this foundation to give a medium/full coverage, and a very skin-like satin finish on my dry skin.
I apply this foundation over the top of a primer and find it to last all day, looking more and more skin like throughout the day. I don't find it to settle into my pores or fine lines. It feels lightweight on my skin despite its full coverage, and has become one of my favourite foundations.
I wear the shade 01, which I can get to work on my pale skin (and will be perfect for summer), but it is a tad dark, so when this bottle runs out I will purchase the shade down (00).

Baked Blush in Bellissimo Bronze
I am such a fan of Milani's baked blush formula, and this shade doesn't disappoint. Bellissimo is such a gorgeous orangey/bronze shade that looks gorgeous used sparingly on my cheeks. It swatches shimmery, but glitter isn't noticeable on the skin, it looks just bright and luminous on the cheeks. All of Milani's baked products contain so much product, and you use so little per application, that their products will last forever! I love it.

Spotlight Face and Eye Strobe Palette in Sunlight
Apart from being one of the most gorgeous products in my collection, this mini palette is giving me heart eyes for its versatility. As a pale gal, I can of course only use the lightest shade in this as a highlighting shade on my cheekbones, down my nose, cupids bow etc, but I find use for the other shades as well. I love to use the pinky peachy shade as a blush, and I use all three shades as eyeshadow! As far as highlight, these aren't the most intense highlighters I have tried, but they are quite pigmented, buildable and great for everyday. The lightest champagne shade looks super pretty on the cheeks and doesn't emphasise texture or pores. It is the perfect shade, and I would happily buy a highlighter in just this shade!!

Moisture Lock Raspberry Oil Infused Lip Treatment in 08
I am fairly new to lip oils, but have been loving them because my lips (and skin in general!) can use all the moisture they can get. This lip oil is like a hydrating gloss, with mega shine, a gorgeous raspberry scent, and a moisturising finish. The applicator is huge (which I love!), and the pink tube is so cute. This is definitely a product to keep in your handbag for those days when your lips need a little extra TLC!

Make It Last Setting Spray
This setting spray is one of the best I have tried. It has a fine, quality spray that disperses the perfect amount of product. It has a nice fresh scent, and the alcohol scent is barely noticeable (most setting sprays are unbearable). It is so lightweight on the skin, and helps my makeup last all day, without budging. It gives a matte finish to my skin and is great for intensifying highlighters! I need to try the Make It Dewy spray now, which I've heard is just as incredible!


If you haven't tried Milani products, you have to! Their products are just as good as those from high end brands, and they are so affordable.

You can purchase Milani from their website, here.

  1. I did not know that Milani had it's own Australian site - how exciting! I've been meaning to try to get the baked blush in Luminoso and the Conceal and Perfect foundation through a third party but glad to hear I can buy directly now!
