Favorite Milani Product: Beauty's Touch Illuminating Face Powder

Purchased (Affiliate Links)

The Makeup Wars! Team is currently featuring the new Milani eyeshadow palettes, and some of us were unable to track them down in time for this feature, therefore you will also see a few other products the we love from Milani. For me, it was an easy selection since I have long held that  Milani Beauty's Touch Illuminating Face Powder is one of the most beautiful blush/highlighters on the market, irrespective of price.
Every now and again, a drugstore makeup line does something so right that were it not for the utilitarian packaging one would swear that it was a high-end luxury product. Such is the case with the Milani Illuminating Face Powders. Of the three shades available, I chose the obviously cooler leaning pink Beauty's Touch 03.

The first, and visceral, reaction is clearly solicited by the embossed roses that look like a gorgeous tightly grouped wedding bouquet. It is so gorgeous that if it were in a Guerlain or Chanel compact that you would be willing to pay upwards of $100.00 for this lovely piece of makeup artwork. The creamy dreamy buttery soft finely milled texture will have you waxing poetic about the many virtues of this wonderful multitasking illuminating face powder. When swirled together it is a lovely soft baby pink. For the ├╝ber fair, this can double as a blush, but for everyone else this will make for one beautiful and luminous highlighter. Medium to darker skin tones may find this too light- therefore the other shades will likely hold greater appeal.
I tend to apply it with a blush brush, and frankly if I didn't know any better I would swear that this was a prohibitively expensive luxury beauty powder.
The front and back of the compact
In order to produce this Milani swatch I swirled my finger in a circular motion around the entire compact, and it can be lightened further by concentrating on the pigment found in some of the lighter roses, and conversely one can focus on the darker roses to darken the overall hue.

Overall Assessment: It would be no exaggeration to state that this is my very favorite drugstore makeup purchase in a very very long time. A+

  2. I can see why you were attracted to it. And you are so right about the packaging. Put it in fancy packaging and the price would skyrocket.

    1. Right?! A luxe compact would really demand a much higher price tag!

  5. I have the exact same thing in the shade Amber Nectar, and I adore it so much, though I don't use it too often for fear of mussing up the pattern.

    1. Isn't it lovely. I don't find the shimmer over the top, but if you are seeking something more matte, then you should take a look at their gorgeous rose blushes!

  8. The packaging looks high-end. I agree with you, re-brand it and it will pass for some luxury brand

  10. I've seen this compact at the drugstore before but I didn't think much of it. It seems like I might have overlooked a real gem! I'll need to see if my local stores still have it around.
