“Richly pigmented and highly buildable, the beautiful matte and shimmery shades of Milani Baked Blushes are the perfect cheeky pop of color for every skin tone. Sunbaked on Italian terracotta tiles, the warm finish adds a radiance that is the very essence of beauty. Shape, contour and highlight your best features” – Milani Cosmetics
When a product is under $10 and performs I am going to shout from the rooftops about it! Milani Baked Blushes are one of the best, if not THE Best at the drugstore! I would say I have 3 top blushes I love from the drugstore and Milani Baked Blushes are number one. The others are from Wet N Wild, the color icon blushes and Burts Bees (see them HERE)
With an array of shades with mattes and shimmers you cant help but to find more than one to add to your collection. Luminoso is the most popular shades. Thanks to being loved by so many beauty bloggers and social media influencers for its peachy shimmery goodness. However so many other shades get left in the dark and Milani just released two more. With the count now at 12 shades I had to talk about them again. This is a drugstore beauty product that everyone should own! See my previous Milan Baked Blushes post HERE.
Whether you are looking for a sheer wash of color on your cheeks or something a bit more bright Milani Baked Blushes will give it to you! The two new shades just make me excited for more to come! For $7.99 its easy to have more than a few 😉
Here are the swatches with shade names attached so you can Pin for future reference! Happy Shopping Beauty Lovers!

It is no secret I love a fab find especially when its under $10 and from the drugstore. Out of this list only two are over $10 but trust me they are worth it! On Tuesdays on my Instagram I like to showcase products that are $10 or less because lets face it, there are some gems at the drugstore. When it comes to must have drugstore products, these 10 products are tried and true, always in reach and in rotation. To see my other fab finds on Instagram use #10orlesstuesday to see my posts.
Drugstore Product List: (click product to shop)
Milani Blushes: I love blush, like really really love blush. Milani Blushes are so affordable, come in multiple shades and have such pretty packaging. Who else is a sucker for classic pretty packaging? Shades I love and use most often are Rosa Romantica and Luminoso (see some Milani swatches HERE. They go on so smoothly and blend like a dream. Its like using a High End Blush.
NYX Butter Glosses: If you are a gloss type of person and have not tried these you must! For under $5 and 34 shades to choose from you are guaranteed to find a shade or two, three or five lol They are very comfortable on the lips, not sticky and provide a nice amount of color. You can wear these glosses alone or over your favorite lipstick for an added pop of shine!
L’Oreal Pro Glow Foundation: Want affordable foundation that will give you a beautiful dewy glow with medium coverage that looks like your skin? This is the one to try. It is so versatile and has become a Holy Grail product. I mix it with my moisturizer, use it alone or I will mix it with my matte foundations for a boost of hydration and glow. My skin is combination but I still prefer to be hydrated and will blot my T Zone when needed. If you have dry skin you will love this foundation!
Wet N Wild Color Icon Blush: For $2.99 this blush goes on like High End but will give you more money in your pocket for more makeup! Hehe!!! Two nude/peach shades that have stolen my heart are Apricot In The Middle & Rose Champagne
Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer: This bronzer will warm up your face and sculpt it while smelling like you are in the tropics! The name is true to its formula because its extremely buttery, blends like a dream and I can say this is a pretty darn close dupe for NARS Laguna Bronzer.
Maybelline Baby Skin Primer: Not only does this make my pores look smaller, my makeup lasts all day. I love this one specifically because its clear. Other pore filling primers are a nude color and I have found the others I have tried (Smashbox, Benefit and Dr. Brandt) have clumped up on my skin. So this one is a winner for me and gets the job done!
Milani Lipsticks: If you have been following me for a while you know MAC Lipsticks are my absolute favorite but when it comes to drugstore lipsticks Milani are the best. They are so close to MAC and I love finding MAC dupes with Milani Lipsticks. There are so many shades and different finishes to choose from. Pigmented, comfortable on the lips and no funky smells and or tastes. One thing I can not handle is a lipstick with a ton of fragrance in it. Who else is like that?
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation – Smooth & Dewy: Another fabulous drugstore foundation that will leave you looking natural and dewy. I love natural makeup and have found so far these two to give me that at the drugstore. The coverage is medium and will last all day on your face.
NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer: This concealer is $5.99, full coverage, comes in 20 shades, infused with coconut oil so it gives the most beautiful dewy finish and is a dupe for Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer. The ingredients are almost identical, trust me you can not go wrong with this one. It does not crease on me and I usually don’t need to set it (but I know that is a preference – see my Top Dewy Concealers HERE)
L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara: One of L’Oreal’s newest products has me jumping for joy! If you are already a L’Oreal Mascara fan this most certainly is one you need to try. If you are new to L’Oreal mascara you wont be disappointed. The amount of length and volume that is achieved will have you putting all your other mascaras to the side. PS if you want to try a mascara primer I highly recommend the L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Primer.

Milani just added two new blushes to their very popular baked blush collection. Its no secret that blush is my thing, my weakness, my ultimate beauty obsession so when I found out two more shades were added ANDDDD they were on Target’s website I jumped on them fast! The Milani Baked Blush collection is priced under $8 bucks and go on the cheeks with just enough pigment. Shades in the collection range from nudes, berry and pinks to the iconic peach shade luminoso.
I mean look at how gorgeous these blushes are!!!Bella Bellini is pink with a golden shimmer in it. It reminds me ALOT of Nars Orgasm (stay tuned I am working on Dupe List III … See my other dupe listshere &here). Rosa Romantica is a perfect nude peachy pink with a light golden shimmer, basically for me it is blush perfection! The Milani site states the shade is light pink but for me it swatches more peach/nude. I use to be all about the pink blushes but now I just want everything to be nude, peach or bronze lol! I cant be the only one who feels this way hehehe!!!
Shades Top to Bottom:
I wanted to round up the rest of my Milani Baked Blush collection and give you swatch comparisons and just some more gorgeous blushes to swoon over! Trust me if you do not own any Milani Blushes you most certainly need at least one in your collection. Perfectly priced, you can grab them at your local target or target online, blend like a dream and the pigment is just enough!
Swatches top to bottom:

If you know me at all you know I am a BLUSH ADDICT!!!! It all started when I was 9 and was heavily involved in dance (read more and see a picture here lol). To me no makeup look is complete without blush and when spring and summer arrive its my favorite time of the year to get my cheek all peachy and ready to glow! Drugstores blushes are some of the best out there and I adore finding affordable makeup. With some many pinks, peaches, corals and nudes to choose from how can one not get excited! Not to mention endless options of shimmers, mattes, creams and powders.
Here are some must have Drugstore Blushes to get you ready for Spring on a budget!
ELF Beautifully Bare Blush: Shade Peach Perfection ($4.00) This is a cream based blush that can be easily applied with your fingers or a small stippling brush. I love this one from Elf. This swatches darker than it actually looks on the cheek. Its a gorgeous sheer tint of peach!
Pixi By Petra Glowy Powder: Shade Rome Rose ($16.00) Ohhhh Pixi Beauty has stolen my heart. This powder is peachy pink with gold shimmer perfection that goes on so smoothly. The most expensive out of them all but Pixi Beauty is high end at the drugstore! (see the Pixi Glowy Powder Collection with swatches and my review here)
Wet N Wild Color Icon Blush: Shade Apricot In The Middle ($2.99) My absolute go to blush that I know will never fail me. For everyday natural looks to a bold red lip look for a night out! You will not be disappointing plus these Wet N Wild blushes apply like high end blushes! Winning!!!!!
Milani Baked Blush: Shade Luminoso ($6.99) This blush pretty much has a cult following and for a good reason.
Physicians Formula Butter Blush: Shade Natural Glow ($12.99) Glowy Shimmer Perfection. A blush that can be worn alone or as a topper to give a more matte blush a bit of peachy pink shimmer!
Each of these drugstore blushes offer such soft shades of pinks and peaches to give your skin that spring glow we all want. They can be pared with nude looks, bright & bold looks and perfectly transition to day to night when you are on the go!
What are some of your favorite blushes for Spring? Do you have a drugstore blush you cannot live without? Let me know, I am always ready to add more to my collection!
