Drugstore Blushes- Milani

If your search for a good drugstore blush has left you less than impressed
then here's that moment when you should tune in! 

Until I recently discovered the Milani Baked Blushes I had never found a 
blush at the drugstore that was worth much to me. 

I decided to purchase two good corals for spring. 
Left: Coralina
Right: Luminoso

Coralina is a gorgeous bright red coral that will look great with a good tan for that 
pop of color we all want this time of the year. 

Luminoso, oh how I love thee. This has been my go to blush for a while now. It is the perfect peach color.  I have to force myself to use other blushes b/c this baby is perfecto! It works with anything and 
everything. It's one of those blushes you don't have to think about what you are pairing it with.
Works great with a bright lip, smoky eye, natural eyes, natural lip... ok, you get the point. 
LOVE this blush! 

Another reason I love these blushes is because they are baked. I don't understand all that goes
into baked products other than they are baked directly on some kind of Italian terra cotta tile. 

Baked products always give off great color pigmentation on top of giving your skin
a good healthy glow. 

They have a highlighting effect to them... so if you are into highlighting (like me)
you may want to go easy on that with these blushes to prevent looking too much 
like a disco ball. 

Here are your swatches. 
Left is Coralina 
Right is Luminoso

These are by far my favorite blushes at the moment and unless something drastically 
changes remain in my opinion the best drugstore blushes. These come in a variety of 
shades and retail for around $7. 

What is your favorite spring blush?!

What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
