It's the only bronzer I use...Milani Mosaic Multi Color Bronzer and Blush in Afterglow

Milani Mosaic Blush in Afterglow is the only bronzer I use. It's not that I don't want to use other brands, but after purchasing a lot from last year's 75% off clearance sale at CVS and learning how amazing they are, why would I want to stop using them?

What I like:
-#7 Afterglow is a mosaic shade of peach, different tones of browns with fine gold shimmers meant to be a blush, bronzer and even eye shadows. It's great for light to medium skin tone.
-It's sheer. I love how I can control over how much I put.
-The gold shimmers are thankfully not visible on the face. I wouldn't want too much shimmers on my face especially during day time.
-It doesn't look muddy or orange on my face.
-You get a lot of product. I've been using since early 2010 and I still haven't hit the pan.
-It's affordable. Only $8.99.

What I don't like:
- Nothing. I really love this blush.

Here are several ways I like to use it:

1. To contour the eyes. It's the perfect shade to contour the eyes to give a slight definition or as a blending color in the eye makeup.

1. Prime the eye lids with a concealer.
2. Using a fluffy blending brush, swirl it in 2 shades of brown.
3. Apply it on the crease going back and forth to create a slight definition.
4. What it looks like with my eye open.
5. With flash.
6. Without flash.

2. To contour the face. This is one of my favorite makeup application. I apply it under the cheekbones, temples and jawline. It gives the illusion of a slimmer face and it looks great in photographs.

3. To contour the nose. Also my favorite makeup application. I like my cute flat nose, but I like to do this step sometimes to make it appear slimmer and longer.    

I highly recommend this blush to everyone. It's multi-purpose, it will last you a long time and it's very affordable. Visit their website to see other shades.


  1. This blush/bronzer looks so versatile and natural! Your cheekbones looks amazing, by the way :)

  2. I got myself one these when I saw your old post before using this blush/bronzer...hehe. It is indeed very versatile. thanks for sharing.

  3. i love multi-purpose products and i love milani too. thanks for sharing!

  4. I wish milani was sold internationally!

  5. Thanks for sharing Becky! I like that it's so versatile! :D

  6. Hey doll! I had this in Coppershine (I think it was called) and only used it 2-3 times, with no luck. Well, to be fair I only quickly tried it on for a natural blush look. I think that shade had a lot of red in it. I was completely done with trying Milani bronzers after two fails (another one was wayyy too sparkly). But I think I may look out for this shade! It looks beautiful on you and I too use bronzers for natural eye color/contour! ♥ best wishes*

  7. that looks very interesting! too bad we don't have it here :(

  8. Looks great! Love Milani... My all time multipurpose powder is NYC Mosaic Face Powders!! Absolute FAV!!

  9. Don't you just love mosaic and brick powders? They're so versatile! My Bobbi Brown shimmer brick works as a blush, highlighter and eyeshadow. all in one palette. :)

  10. soooo pretty and the fact the you can use it for many different things is a plus. Definitely need to check it out.

  11. i love how this looks on your eyes, i tried looking for it at my cvs and there wasn't any. i'll have to try again.

  12. You look beautiful!! I don't think I have ever seen these in my Milani display. I will have to look closer next time.
