Nah, this isn’t about the latest hit in music. You came to the right blog. This time I wanna share a very recent fave of mine from Milan Minerals.
Milan Minerals has gotten a lot of raves from my fellow MMU addicts. Their gel liners, a cult favorite, if Iâ€™m not mistaken, are similar to that of MAC fluidlines. They definitely have a lot of goodies to try! As I was browsing their site, a wave of frustration swept over me. I can only feast my eyes on the pics since I can’t purchase anything online because I still don’t have a credit card. On second thought, it’s a good thing ‘coz I’m unable to practice my impulse buying habits.
So anyway, I still got to purchase some goodies through my friend Joyce, another self-confessed addict. She was taking orders then and I knew it was one and only chance.
It was kind enough of her to give me a sample of Pretty in Pink (the remix) blush along with the 20++ samples of MMU I hoarded, err, ordered I mean.
I didn’t order that much blushes from Milan. I knew I had way too many. And to be honest, none of the selection appealed to me. Maybe except for Peachy Keen and Playground, which looked way too glittery in their baggies. A quick glance at the sample Joyce gave me, I had almost dismissed it as a bright, bright pink that I would never dare wear. The kind of pink that would remind you of the 70′s and bellbottoms and disco fever! I swear! Haha. It’s scaaary pink! Or so I thought…
Don’t get me wrong, I like pinks. But it’s as if I was almost going to pass for this one. Well, almost. Today I gave it a chance since I didn’t feel like looking too made up. I was just going to the mall for a facial and maybe warts removal too (Yeah, I shouldn’t be telling you that. It didn’t push through anyway. ). After applying the gel liner in Magnetism and curling my lashes, I proceeded to put on some of Pretty in Pink. And OMG! I look so healthy! Having medium-toned skin with lots of yellow and golden undertones, I never would have imagined a shade of pink this scaaary is going to turn out really very pretty. From MilanMineral Cosmetics:
This is the ABSOLUTE perfect pink for African-American women with dark complexions. Although it appears neon, it isn’t. This pink will actually show up pink on a dark complexion. Great on lips. The beauty of minerals is that most are 3 in 1 products! This shade is great on lips or as a blush”.
Now that’s a more than good enough description. In my opinion, it would flatter even the not-so-fair skin types like me.
This is definitely one of my favorite pink blushes, not that I have a lot on my list. Lol. I remember Joyce telling me what a “refreshing shade of pink” it is. Refreshing indeed!
