These Baked Bronzers just weren’t Baked Long Enough

[button link=”#” target=”_blank” color=”Black” shape=”rounded” size=”small” align=”right”]Press Samples and Affiliate Links[/button] Milani Cosmetics Matte Baked Bronzers 2014.jpg We all love Milani Cosmetics Baked anything. They’ve had our hearts since their Baked Eyeshadows and Blush first came onto the scene back in oh say 2011? I was hoping the Limited Edition Matte Baked Bronzers would fall right into that category but alas I really don’t think they cooked them long enough for them to be used by all skin tones.

L-R 07 Sienna, 08 Sunset

While there are already three Baked Bronzers on the shelves the Milani Cosmetics Matte Baked Bronzers are the only two in Matte formula. They come in the shades 07 Sienna and 08 Sunset and retail for $8.99. The website describes the blushes as “a bronzing powder that features a mélange infusion of colors baked on Italian terracota tiles. Easy to use, sensorial in texture, the nuances of color become extraordinarily luminous, enhancing the purity of the skin. This hi-tech, streak free bronzer, gives a perfect radiant look.” As you can see from the pictures below of the product swatched on my skin they don’t show up well at all. I wouldn’t recommend these for people who have a darker skin tone than I because it may wind up looking a bit ashy on your skin. I was able to pull off wearing 07 Sienna after I built the product up but it was a very very subtle glow. If you’re of a pale to medium complexion you could use this product as a bronzer or maybe even a contour if it’s dark enough.

Milani cosmetics, Baked Bronzers   As I stated earlier these are limited edition, but honestly if you’re of a skin tone deeper than mine I wouldn’t even bother. Have you tried out the Milani Cosmetics Matte Baked Bronzers? If so let me know how they worked for you. Below are two of my favorite Milani Baked Bronzers 04 Glow and 05 Soliel

    I would love this as a bronzer!

    I have these and love them. They work well for me, but I can see what you mean. Those with darker skintones absolutely wouldn’t benefit from using these.

    Seems like I should be getting some of these soon in the mail! I wonder if I will have the same feeling that you did.

    It’s too bad that they didn’t work for your skin tone.

    They look more like a highlighter than a bronzer on your skintone. Definitely a pass.

    That must be disappointing that you can’t even use them as a highlight because they lean ashy rather than glowy. Bummer!

    I haven’t been able to find these in my area, yet. *pouty lip* They could work for me, as I am fair and I’d like to give them a shot. If I get them, I’ll probably end up having to order them from the Milani website.

    I actually have a similar bronzer from Milani and it did well for me, sorry it didnt work on you.

    These worked nice for me – I’m sorry they have not for you. They should have at least 2 more deeper shades 🙂

    These would be too dark for me but it’s a shame that you can’t find one dark enough for you. It’s more like a highlighting powder on dark skin.

    Gorgeous, but i can’t imagine using them for contouring just because they seem so satiny!

    I wouldn’t use them for contouring, but I love that gorgeous shimmery finish on the apples of my cheeks 🙂

    It looks quite shimmery considering it’s matte. I haven’t spotted this yet at my local d/s.

  15. June 7, 2014 / 10:32 am

    i actually love these. So sort they don’t really work for you.

  16. June 7, 2014 / 11:20 am

    I’ve been looking all over for these! That sucks they didn’t work for you =( Next time maybe they’ll have some deeper shades!

    So sorry they didn’t work out for you..but I love these!!

  18. June 8, 2014 / 10:44 am

    I kind of have the feeling they won’t work out for me – thanks for your honest review.

    I liked these, but I did find them to be pretty light in comparison to others I own.
