Milani Rose Powder Blush in Coral Cove: Now That’s a Cute Pan

Published in: Daily Beauty

Milani Coral Cove Rose Powder Blush

Coral blush cuteness served on a pan of rosy cuteness with a side of cuteness on the side!


Talk about a cute pan. 🙂

That pretty much summarizes the way I felt about Milani’s gorgeous Rose Powder Blush in Coral Cove ($7.99) the first time I saw it. One word: cute.

One of four recently released limited edition matte Rose Powder Blushes from the brand (with the others being red Lady Rouge, dark rose Love Potion and light rose Tea Rose), it immediately caught my eye. I thought I’d be able to wear it with orange lips and give one of this spring’s trendy looks a try.

Buuuuut, unfortunately, I haven’t been able to make it work…

It looks so intense in the pan, but it applies rather sheer, patchy and powdery on my cheeks.

The apples of my cheeks are always somewhat dry, and Coral Cove doesn’t really adhere to my skin unless I prep the area first with a rich moisturizer.

Which I’ll do, ya know, but it’s an extra step… If you have oilier skin than mine, it probably won’t be an issue.

For some reason, too, I don’t think the color looks very natural on my cheeks, perhaps because of the amount of red in it. Maybe I’ll like it more in a couple months when I (hopefully) have a tan and more reddish undertones in my skin.

Still cute, though… I think I’ll put it on a shelf to admire the pretty pan. 🙂


You’ll find Coral Cove and the other Rose Powder Blushes at drugstores and online now ($7.99 a pan).

    It looks beautiful, but if it can’t perform successfully then it’s pointless:/ Maybelline’s dream bouncy blushes are great though.

    I cant find these blushes anywhere, besides the website UGH!!

    Awww, it’s sad that it didn’t work for you! I really like mine, it works really well (but I do have oily skin). I love the color too, so perfectly summery!

  5. Fancie says:

    This blush is so pretty! From the design to the color I just love it! But I think I’m going to pass. I wanted these so badly but all the reviews seem to say the same thing. My cheeks are pretty dry too so I’m not sure I’ll be able to make it work. It’s such a bummer because I missed out last year and was so hell bent on getting the new shades

    Such a shame this color was a miss. I thought it swatched lovely on your skin. I’m an oily/combo skin gal but I’m afraid to purchase this because the reviews I’ve read have been mixed. Ahhh well, guess I’ll just have to find a new blush from MAC (as if I’d planned not to!). 🙂

    That blush is the cutest colour ever! gotta get my hands on it

    I have been drooling over these blushes. So pretty.
    Color cove is a lovely color. Too bad is goes on patchy.
    Hope that not all the colors are like that.

  10. I can’t believe that it’s not performing, as it should. What a shame, as it is gorgeous, and I actually wanted to ask my friend from the US to pick up the pink one for me. So, thanks for the review.

    I had every intention of buying all of the shades this blush came in, but I kept hearing how bad they were! It’s so disappointing because they look gorgeous.

    I thought I was the only one. I bought 3 of the 4 colors and they were underwhelming. Powder central. They went back to the store, but I bought the baked matte blush and it was a keeper. Though it doesn’t wear as long as I would like it’s pretty for a night out.

    That colors is gorgeous, I wonder if its a dupe for the new Clinique blushes that everyone’s talking about.
