NEW Milani Summer 2015 Limited Edition Rose Powder Blushes (Pics, Swatches & Comparisons)

Ever since longtime reader Peaisms left that comment on the You Tell Me page about some new LE Milani Rose Powder Blushes that she recently spotted at CVS, I've been on the lookout for them (if you've been reading my blog for a while, then you know that I love both the previous limited edition Rose Powder Blushes and the permanent shades; I can never get enough of these beauties!). I haven't found this new collection yet in my area, but today I'm able to share with you pics of the display, as well as swatches and comparisons, thanks to two lovely readers!

NOTE: This collection is now popping up at CVS stores. Depending on the store, you may find this collection tucked inside the permanent Milani display, or in a seperate, freestanding counter dipslay such as the one I'm about ot show you. So be sure to check both the permanent Milani display as well as the new product section of your CVS stores if you're looking for these.

Many thanks to reader @brittanyblois on Instagram for kindly sharing these pics of the display, which she spotted at CVS this week:

Reader Lori also spotted these blushes at her local CVS and purchased all three. She was kind enough to share some pics, along with some comparisons to the permanent shades:

Lori noticed that all three shades sort of have counterparts in the permanent line (but with shimmer; the permanent Rose Blushes all have a matte finish). So she kindly shared the following comparisons with us.

I hope this gives you a better idea of the types of shades in this new collection. Overall, I think the biggest differences here, compared to the permanent shades, are that these LE shades all seem a bit warmer, and they all contains sparkle/shimmer.

DON'T FORGET that this week (now through 6/13), all Milani cosmetics, including these blushes, are BOGO1/2OFF at CVS and when you spend $10 you'll receive $3 back in Extra Bucks (limit 3 on the Extra Bucks offer).

Thanks again, Lori and Brittany, for the great pics and info. I really appreciate it!

  1. Yes! These blushes are amazing, I have every color of these so far. My only fear is that I won't be able to find these since they are LE. the stores around here hardly ever get Milani LE displays. I can't even find the summer LE Dolci collection and I want those products too. I live in a town with the lamest CVS, so that is not even an option. Fingers crossed I find these at Meijer. Thanks for the great pics, G!

  2. I'm excited for these. I like my blush to have a little shimmer and that is why I didn't buy the permanent collection.

    1. Same here. Hard to tell how shimmery they are here, a little is ok for me but chunks of or obvious glitter not so much. That said I'll still be checking them out. CVS has a good return policy just in case.

  9. Ughhh, nooo after finding 2 of them, way too much shimmer. Not impressed, other than they are pretty to look at .

  10. Are these exclusive to CVS or will other stores that carry Milani get these in stock? My CVS stores are so unreliable - sometimes they'll have all the new LE stuff all at once and other times they never get the displays in.

  11. Have you seen the new Milani matte lipsticks G?! I saw them in walgreens today. I bought some. I wish I thought of taking a picture of the display when I was there. The new shades are great, better than the first series. I think one of them might be a dupe for MAC's persistence.

  14. Love the comparison photos. That really helps me to decide if I want them or not and which ones I want. I have 2 of the permanent ones already and don't want ones that are too similar. Thank you!

  15. I picked up the Blossomtime Rose shade and it's very similar to the Luminoso blush/ Nars Orgasm except a little darker and the texture is not as buttery if that helps!

    2. Jael check the milani display in your CVS. I found mine today on the side of the milani display. It looks like they made a little section to put all their new collections out in the display. Good luck!! Xoxo

  20. I finally found these today and super excited! They are gorgeous in person! I actually found them in the Milani display so definitely check the display out it looks like they have a little spot for their collections that come out its on the side of the big Milani display. Hope this helps ladies and good luck. Oh and theres only 2 sets of blushes in the display.

  21. American Beauty Rose is so pretty! I haven't tried any of the rose blushes because they have mixed reviews. But maybe I'll take my chances on this LE ones :)
