Product Review: Milani Rose Powder Blush

Hello Hello! Recently, I stopped by Walgreens to pick up some items for an upcoming trip. Per usual, I could not help but browse through the new arrivals in the cosmetics aisle and the beautiful rose impression on the new Milani Spring 2014 Limited Edition Rose Powder Blushes quickly caught my eye. The blush can be found in four shades:

Coral Cove (05)
Lady Rouge (06)
Love Potion (07)
Tea Rose (08)

As tempting as it was to pick up all four blushes, I decided on coming home with Lady Rouge and Tea Rose for $7.50 each. 

 In the package, Tea Rose is a beautiful pinky brown shade while Lady Rouge is a bright pinky red.

In the process of swatching, I noticed Tea Rose was much more silky to the touch while the texture of Lady Rouge was more course. Neither of the two blushes swatched smooth upon first swipe. Both blushes required a little blending to reach the texture shown in the swatches above and both blushes appeared to be the same hue after they were swatched.

My overall thoughts are that although the packaging is lovely and despite the difference in appearance of the blushes, I would only recommend picking up Tea Rose as the texture was much smoother than Lady Rouge. In comparison to the blushes in Milani's regular line of products, I think the quality of the blushes in their regular line are better.

Have you seen these limited edition blushes in the store yet? If yes, what are your thoughts on the shades? What are your favorite Milani blushes? I welcome your thoughts below!
