Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink: Review & Swatch
Sometimes all a gal needs is a little bit of flush to look awake and alive. Baked blushes might just be the right choice for you. Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink is an option. These baked blushes have been on the market for awhile, but it's better late than never.

Like all baked blushes, if you depot this you'll notice that there is a terra cotta base that the blush is presumably baked on. It's a blush with a nice shimmery gold glow showing through (even though it appears silver in the pic) a subtle baby pink base. It's easy to blend and gives the cheek a nice flush. The compact also has a brush and mirror in an underneath compartment. The brush is scratchy and useless (and clearly why it's still wrapped). However, the mirror is a good size. I don't personally carry around blush in my bag, so I haven't used it for touch ups. I'm just presuming for those who carry their makeup around, it's nice addition to have a mirror.
Swatches on bare skin (no primer). You can see the shimmery/gold quality of the blush. Luckily on the cheeks it doesn't emphasize pores. The swatch on the right is a concentrated version, and blended out swatch on the left. Dolce Pink is a very subtle glowy flush that may not show up on darker skin tones.
Bottom Line: As baked blushes go, this is an affordable, great drug store option. Dolce Pink would be best suited for lighter skin tones. It's pigmented, but subtle, and it gives a nice shimmer on the cheeks.
