BlogForBunnies: Nail Art with Milani Nail Polish

BlogForBunnies

BlogForBunnies and BeCrueltyFree will hopefully be trending hashtags this week! I want to live in a world where no animal has to suffer and die for the sake of cosmetics.  The goal seems simple enough, but sadly, it is not so easy! Yes, there has been progress – we now have a full test and sales ban across the European Union, Norway, India, Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Israel. There is  legislation being considered in Australia, Brazil, New Zealand, Taiwan and here in the United States of America.  There has even been a little bit of progress in China, where mandatory animal testing was removed for domestically-produced cosmetics.

Milani Coming Up Roses: Thoughts

The Warm Petal Blush has a little bit of shimmer, which is nice.  The Warm Petals is just as advertised. It is a silky-soft powder and it applied very nicely onto my cheeks.  I found that it was very pigmented–although you can wear it more sheer depending on your preference. I applied the Warm Petals blush early in the morning, and it stayed put for at least eight hours.

With this color, it would be excellent for contouring or for a bronzer, in addition, to simply being used as a blush.

Loved that this brown blush had a little shimmer in it and that the formula is terrific; and, again, you can’t beat that price of $6.49 for .60 ounces!
