I hope El Hub doesn’t get jealous of my Valentine’s Day dates this year.
Yes, girl, “dates,” as in the plural. I’ll be painting the town rosy pink next week with these two new matte Baked Blushes from Milani.
Both are pretty cool cats, not that El Hub isn’t, but ya know… The first one, Delizio Pink, is a cool matte bluish pink, and the second one is matte bluish red Bella Rosa.
These two dudes have the moves!
They’re smooove, like that guy who orders you a slice of raspberry cheesecake AND a scoop of salted caramel ice cream when you head to the ladies’ loo after dinner because he knows you won’t be able to pick between the two…
Sorry, I’m craving something sweet right now.
With the amount of pigment you get and the soft, fine feel of the powders, I feel like you get a lot of bang for your buck with these. Both of them pack a ton of color yet remain really easy to buff and blend. On top of that, they aren’t patchy or streaky at all. I just use a blush brush and a light hand, and that’s it. Flushed, natural-looking cheeks.
Oh, and the wear time? Killer. They last all day long for me. Not to call out NYX…but I think their Baked Blushes are similar, and similarly pretty, but those only last about five hours on my cheeks. Sad panda.
These are seriously drugstore diamonds. I think they even hold their own with MAC.
I just hope Milani releases some shades in warmer tones soon, so the warm-toned gals can rock ’em, too.

Speaking of Valentine’s Day…
How about a romantic evening in with this life-sized Ryan Gosling body pillow?
For a mere $74 (plus shipping), the ViolentDelightsBrand Etsy store will send you one, so that you may spend your nights with RyGos.
I suppose you could also spend your days with him, too, if you’re freaky like that.
And, um, am I the only one slightly disappointed that pillow-Gos is fully clothed? Color me perverted, I guess…
