I went to Meijer today for toilet paper and socks but somehow came out with something to blog about. I obviously cannot go into any store without stopping in the cosmetic section! My local Meijer had Milani’s NEW limited edition “Coming Up Roses” Powder Blush Collection.
(retail: 6.49 each at Meijer, 0.6 oz)
Isn’t the rose embossing adorable? It’s not often you come by a matte blush from a drugstore brand but this collection has three out of the four! These blushes are all very soft and powdery but do not appear chalky on the skin. They blend very well and are buildable for more opaque color.

The shimmer in Warm Petals was hard to photograph because it is very subtle and gives more a “glow” than a shimmery/glittery finish which I love.
