Milani Baked Cosmetics Review: Bronzers and Eyeshadows

I have had my eyes on the Milani Baked Cosmetics for months now. Once all of my beauty blogging friends started rolling out their reviews, I was pretty much sold. Who doesn’t like a really good baked bronzer that can be found at a drugstore anyways? In addition to the baked bronzers, I also have a few baked eyeshadows that are gorgeous.

Check out my review of these products and let me know what you think!


Milani Baked Cosmetics Review

Can we stop for a moment and appreciate how pretty the Milani Baked Cosmetics all look together?

Easy to use, sensorial in texture, the nuances of color become extraordinarily luminous, enhancing the purity of the skin. This hi-tech, streak free bronzer, gives a perfect radiant look.”

Of the two of these Milani Baked bronzers, the Sunset is the darkest. In my opinion this would be too dark for someone with more pale skin, but perfect for someone with a med. skin-tone.  It lasted all day long for me with no color fading. It is really pigmented, so a little does go a long way.

Milani Baked Bronzer Review Sienna

Sienna is the lighter Milani Baked bronzer; perfect for someone with a more fair skin-tone. I would definitely not recommend this for someone who has a med to dark skin-tone as it would really make them look ashy (which is never a good look).With that said, it’s a gorgeous color and the stay is amazing.

Overall Thoughts & Opinions

Well, I wish I could say that these two bronzers were available, but unfortunately they are not because they were Limited Edition and I just received them last week. But if you check out the colors Glow (for light skin) and Soleil (for med/dark), they are a pretty close match. Overall I think these Milani Baked Bronzers are a really great product at a really inexpensive price!  What do you think of these?

In this picture I am using all of the Milani Baked Cosmetics that I am showing off in this post. On my face I used the baked bronzer in Sunset to contour and give myself a little faux tan. I love that it gives the skin a little glow…I am feeling my inner j-lo coming out.

Milani Baked Eyeshadow Review: must have fuchsia

How gorgeous is this Milani Baked Eyeshadow in Must Have Fuchsia? It is is a beautiful Fuchsia color with a hint of a metallic undertone. It is really pigmented, was easy to apply, and stayed really well when I used an eyeshadow primer. I think this is the perfect color for brightening up your eyes and it even works well as a blush too!

milani baked Eyeshadow Review: Copper Excess

Talk about the perfect summertime color! I love that this Milani Baked Eyeshadow in Copper Excess will go perfectly with a ton of colors. I used it on my eyelids and blended it into the contour of my eyes which made the green in my eyes really pop. In addition, this was also really pigmented; I barely had to use any in order for it to completely cover my entire lower eyelid. I think everyone needs this eyeshadow…just sayin.

Overall Thoughts & Opinions

Of the two of these baked eyeshadows, the Copper Excess was definitely my favorite. I don’t think that Better than Fuchsia is for everyone, but it’s also not as bright on your eyes at it looks in these swatches (see picture below).  So don’t be sceerrd, give it a try.

On my eyes I have Copper Excess on my lower eyelid and then Better than Fuchsia in the contour of my eye. I then used a white eyeliner to make my eye color pop even more and added some mascara.

So the next time you are out looking for a baked bronzer or eyeshadow, check out the Milani Baked Cosmetics first, they will not disappoint!
