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).
