Milani Dolci Bronze Collection + Limited Edition Rose Powder Blushes!

2015-08-24 22.38.09 (480x320)

Purchased by me   Just because the weather is cooling down (in some parts of the country), doesn’t mean you have to give up that bronzed beauty look–not yet pleeeze! Milani’s Dolci Bronze Collection will help you hold on to your Bronzed Goddess status.

There are only five pieces in the collection and each  item is named  Dolci for easy reference I presumeThe collection includes a Fierce Foil lipgloss, lipstick, Bronzer XX All Over Glow, Color Statement nail polish and Belle Eyes eyeshadow in this collection. I chose the lipstick, lipgloss and eyeshadow to add to my Milani stash. On a side note, there is some debate as the whether the Dolci Bronze Collection is limited edition. The display does not state it as such and it not noted as limited edition on the Milani website either, so to my knowledge only the blushes released at the same time are LE.

Color Statement Lipstick in Dolci Bronze ($5.99) – Dolci is a frosty copper with a metallic sheen. It’s very pigmented but I feel it accentuates my lip lines. I will say though, that the more I wear it, the more I like it. This lipstick makes a bold statement–not exactly a natural look. 🙂

Milani Brilliant Shine Lipgloss Dolci Bronze ($4.99) – is a pinky gold with liquid metal finish. The texture is smooth but not creamy, silky but not sticky. The doe foot applicator helps spread the gloss evenly across the lips. I like to wear this alone or over the dolci lipstick whereas I don’t like wearing the lipstick alone. My only complaint about this gloss it the STRONG scent. I could smell the scent long after I swatched it. It is a beautiful shade, but if you have a sensitive nose, walk on by.

Milani Bella Eyes Gel Eyeshadow in Dolci Bronze ($4.49) – I love the pigmentation and texture of the Bella eyeshadows. This rose gold shade is surprisingly subtle. When I first saw it in the pan, I was sure I was looking at a dupe of Bella Gold, but when swatched side-by-side, Gold is well…gold and Dolci is pink. Dolci Bronze has the same lovely subtle shimmer and texture as the other Bella eyeshadows. It is almost the exact shade as my eyelid so it appears as a very subtle glow on  my eyes and not really a color per se. I’ll wear Bella Gold when I want my eyes to be the center of attention and Dolci Bronze when I want to highlight lips or cheeks instead.

In addition to items from the Dolci Bronze Collection, I purchased two of the three new Limited Edition Rose Blushes. I would have picked up all three, but Blossomtime Rose was sold out–I will definitely seek it out based on the fabulous performance of the other two. 2015-08-24 22.31.40 (480x320)

I am a HUGE fan of the Milani Rose Powder Blushes ($7.99) and the limited edition American Beauty Rose and Awakening Rose are no exception. These amazing blushes are embellished with a stunning raised rose design. Milani blushes are very high quality for drugstore blushes; they are silky, blend brilliantly and have great pigment. The texture of these blushes are harder and drier than higher end blushes; thankfully it doesn’t translate as dry or powdery on the skin.

Awakening Rose is a peachy nude with slight shimmer. American Beauty Rose is a slightly shimmery pink rose shade. No worries beauties, the shimmer in these blushes is VERY subtle yet imparts a lovely luminosity to the cheeks. There may be similar shades in the regular line, but they are matte. I am totally obsessed with these! 2015-08-24 22.32.46 (480x320)

Bottom Line: the Milani Dolci Bronze Collection makes for such a pretty summer/fall look and of course the price is right. I you can find it in your local drugstore, definitely pick up a few pieces!  Milani Rose Powder blushes are high quality and offer pretty colors for a budget friendly price!  Hurry though, these are limited edition.
