Milani Illuminating Face Powder in Amber Nectar Review

I recently noticed Milani Cosmetics in my local Wal-Mart and decided to give a few products a try. I have fallen in love with this product ever since. They have 3 different colors: Amber Nectar, Hermosa Rose, and Beauty’s Touch. Today, I will be reviewing “Amber Nectar.”


Product Description:

An ultra-smooth blush, bronzer and/or highlighter gives skin a hint of color with a lit-from-within radiant healthy glow. It is suitable for all skin types and tones.

My Experience with Milani Illuminating Face Powder in Amber Nectar:

This product is perfect for when I am in the mood to give my face a natural glow.  I use it on my cheek bone as a highlighter for a perfect subtle glow. What I love about this product is that I can use it for multiple areas such as upper cheek bone as highlighter, a blush for cheeks or as a bronzer. Another great thing is that I can use the individual colors or mix them together to create a beautiful pinkish gold color. On the downside, it is not that pigmented, so I have to apply multiple applications on my face for the color to be noticeable. So, basically I have to build up to get the color and intensity that I am looking for.
