Drugstore Gem: Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso + Comparison to Lorac Exposed

How did I never notice this gorgeous blush during my numerous trips to the drugstore? Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso is a beautiful peach with very fine micro-shimmer. The finish is very similar to Lorac Baked Matte Satin (which really are not matte whatsoever) blushes if you are familiar. If you are a fan of peachy-toned blushes like the Lorac Exposed or NARS Orgasm, you will definitely love this one. The Milani baked blushes are so soft and pigmented and will seriously last you forever. And the texture is so silky! In addition, the Milani baked blushes come with an applicator brush stored in a separate compartment underneath and a mirror as well. If you have wanted the Lorac Exposed but don't want to pay $25, the Milani Luminoso is a similar alternative but with less orange-tones and more peach. You will see them side by side in the pictures below. Dare I say I actually prefer the Milani Luminoso over Lorac Exposed? Final thoughts: amazing pigmentation, texture, and quality for under $5!
