My Milani Faves for the Brown Skinned Beauties

Milani makes high quality, highly pigmented products that actually works for us brown skinned beauties. Here are some of my faves along with a giveaway.

 Milani Favorite Products for Dark Skin

Milani is one of my favorite drugstore brands. They make high quality, highly pigmented products that can go head to head with some of the high end brands, at a fraction of the cost. Best of all, as brown skinned beauties they make lots of products that work for our different complexions and skin tones. Here are some of my favorite products, they are not in any particular order.

1. Baked Blush in Red Vino

A burgundy red with gold shimmer, it is not as scary as it looks in the pan. Red Vino is extremely pigmented so you must use a light hand. When applied lightly and blended it gives the cheeks a natural flush with a slight golden glow. Gorgeous on tan and brown skin.

2. Baked Bronzer in GoldenΒ Β 

A deep golden tan with gold shimmer that gives the skin a glowing from within look. This is my go to bronzer, especially in the Summer when I don’t want much of anything else on my face, I use it in place of blush.

3. Eye Tech Extreme

The extreme fine tip point makes it easy to create the thinnest to the boldest lines making it perfect for a cat eye look. Extremely pigmented and long wearing, it stays put all day.

4. Grandissimo Lashes Incredible Volume Mascara

Gives lashes a full yet natural look and is great for everyday wear.

5. Color Statement Lipstick in Black Cherry

I absolutely love the color statement lipsticks and it’s hard to choose a favorite but hands down, Black Cherry is my numero uno. A bold black cherry cream that is perfect for a vamp lip. It’s extremely pigmented and moisturizing and just really makes the lips pop. Perfect for a Fall and Winter stand out lip.

6. Color Statement Lipstick in Teddy Bare

On the other end of the lipstick spectrum, Teddy Bare is one of my favorite nudes. As a brown girl I find it hard to find a good nude lipstick as some are too dark and most are too ashy. Teddy Bare is the perfect pink toned brown cream to get the my lips but better look. It works very well on women of color, even those with deeper complexions that may have an even harder time finding a nude lipstick.

I used all of the products together to create a look to take you from day to night…

  1. Milani is my favorite cosmetic line. I adore their lipsticks and cream to powder foundation.

  2. The only product I have by Milani is the Black Cherry lipstick, so that’s my favorite so far. Thanks!

  3. I have the baked blushes and they are comparable to MAC. The baked bronzers are everything! I only have 04 and 05, but I use those everyday! I use 04 to highlight and 05 I use when I don’t wear blush. I need 06.

  4. The only Milani product I have, which I really do like, is a silver sparkly liner that picked up from the Dollar Tree about two months ago! Hope I win this giveaway because I would love to try some more from Milani!

  5. So far I have tried their Nail Polish and lipstick. I didn’t get the right shade of lipstick that looked right on me but I do like the nail polish I got. Its a pretty Hot Orchid Color.

  6. I love Milani’s lipsticks and baked blushes. Actually… I love more than just those two products but if I had to pick favs it would be a tie between those two.

  7. I love Milani’s eyeshadow base. It works perfectly for me. I have also a brow set, it’s really good.

  8. Milani has some great eyeliners and blushes: Milani blush in Sweet Rose
    Milani Liquif eye black eyeliner are my favourites!

  9. I don’t have a favorite as I have only tried a couple of their products. I am hesitant to try new colours other than the ones I am used to as if they don’t look good then I have wasted good money. Thank you for the opportunity to try before I buy πŸ™‚

  10. I love their Espresso automatic sharpening eyeliner! I won’t wear anything else, it never smudges!

  11. My favorite product from Milani is the Red Vino blush it gives me that” just had the best night of my life” look!!
