I recently bought the Milani Baked Blush at Walgreens. You can purchase it at CVS, Target, or online too, of course.
This blush is supposed to be a dupe for Nars Blush in Orgasm. I love that blush, and this is close…but, not a dupe in my opinion. Milani’s Dolce Pink Blush is beautiful though, and much cheaper! So, there’s that. It comes with a little brush inside the case, but I rarely use the brushes included in makeup products.

Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink is a highly pigmented, long-wearing, pink blush with a plum base. I think it would look great on just about anyone! It does have a light shimmer to it, so if you don’t like that it may be a tad sparkly for you. If you really hate shimmer but you still want to try it, just press on some translucent powder over it! This will set the blush while toning down the sparkle.
What you need to know about this blush is that they are mixed and baked and none of them look exactly the same. So…if you are at the store—look over the packages on the peg and see what mix and swirl of color you like most. Yes, they will all look almost identical, but there are some very slight differences. They’re all pretty though. You’ve got a winner here!
Con: the packaging is challenging for me to open. Every. Single. Time! Agh! The little brush blush that comes with it is lame, but will do in a pinch if you are out and about.
I give the Milani Baked Blush in Dolce pink 5 out of 5. That packaging can’t get me down! I will buy this again, and again, and again. I’ve also bought a couple of the other colors in the Baked Powder Blushes too. Win!
