For Spring 2014 Milani has released two new shades to their baked blush ($7.99) line but in matte formulas. Bloggers that received press samples posted about these weeks ago but they didn’t start popping up in stores until now.
I’ve looked in several local stores and so far have only been able to get my hands on the shade Bella Rosa. Bella Rosa is a deep pink, almost red shade.
Bella Rosa is extremely pigmented so a little goes a very long way with this shade. Start applying it with a light hand and blend it out. If you need more, the color can easily be built up.
Matte blush can tend to be on the dry, powdery side but this one is silky smooth. It easily blends into the cheeks and leaves a bit of satin finish instead of a flat, chalky finish.
What do you think of Milani’s Bella Rosa? Have you tried either of the matte shades yet?
