The Blush Vixen is back with a blush review of Milan’s Playground. Enjoy!-MMG
Having a lot of mineral makeup blushes means having a lot of options. I wake up day by day wondering what color will grace these cheeks of mine.
I’m usually adventurous when it comes to blushes. But one of the colors I secretly dread is purple. Come on! I can’t imagine myself sporting a purplish shade. Then came Milan’s Playground. I must haven’t been myself the time I ordered Playground. It looks okay alright, with the hints of what I thought was golden shimmer on its online swatch.
So when I got my package, the excitement I had almost went poof! What was I thinking getting what looked like a bland, violet shade? Milanminerals.com described it as “Our mauvy-pink shade is a compliment to any skintone.” To be honest, it looked plain uninteresting in the sample baggie that it didn’t cross my mind of ever using this. And so after a few months of sitting in my makeup box, I held my breath, got my blush brush and applied color to my cheeks. I was wearing a print dress with hues of purple, green and yellow. Playground seemed to be a perfect choice to complement my fun, no-fuss look for the day.
Oookaaaay, it really was purple after all! And a really scary purple at that! I turned my back to the mirror and was about to wipe my cheeks, when it turned into a really gorgeous mauvey-pink shade that Milan was talking about.
It’s by far the most natural-looking purplish blush on me, as you can see on my FOTD. (Sorry about the hair, I was in a hurry to take pics! Lol) My friend even complimented it. She had no idea whatsoever it wasn’t just another pink blush. Aside from being such a pretty shade, I also like how it brings out the “lighter” side of my complexion. Yet another good find for us girls with light to medium complexion.
For the past week, I used this blush almost everyday. Now that’s a breakthrough! I usually refrain from using the same shades often since I easily get bored. And just to show how much of a favorite Playground has become to me, here’s another FOTD:
I went easy on everything with this look, just let the blush do the talking!
PS. Wow, I can’t believe I just had posted my FOTD’s. Now that took a lot of courage.
