Milani jumps on the baked bronzer bandwagon!

CVS Shopping list: prescription, panty liners, soup and Advil
Why do I still make my way through the makeup aisle?

Milani's TANtastic Face & Body Baked Bronzer (approx. $10) not on Milani's website yet, sigh
Comes in two colors #1 and #2

I didn't buy it because I have at least 10 items I can think of off the top of my head that are similar in my stash. I will say that it looks a bit 'foily' meaning it might not be as much of a refined powder and will deliver ultra, almost metallic shine (since it is a face AND body product?) Well, I haven't tried it myself, so I'm not positive.

Have you tried it? *Heads over to Nouveu Cheap as she's always got the scoop on drugstore buys!*

looks really pretty

I'm the same way. I always have to at least stroll through the makeup isle (and the baby isle)! That looks interesting. I have so many bronzers and I often get disappointed when I buy a new one. My fav is MAC's Warm Blend.

LOL!! OMG, you're killin' me over here! :D

I spotted these back in July. You can see the full display here:

Those compacts are HUGE, huh? In addition to the two shades of powder bronzer, there is also a cream bronzer that comes in a cute little pot (you can see it on the right side of the display in my pics). I didn't purchase any of these either but they definitely look interesting. :)

Please post a review if you end up getting one of these. I'd love to know your thoughts!

@ caramel diva: it is!

@ tia: i'm the same way! that's why i ultimately passed, just like the paladio bronzers from sally's. pretty, but i'm just about over them.

@ recessionista: you know i found the post already lol! i'll wait for your review if you ever get it, before i pick one up ;) i actually got the little potted cream body bronzer stuff maybe 1 or 2 years ago... yeh i felt a bit uneven and orange!

@ gaby: it does, but the package is soooo bulky. i guess for the mirror and (usu. no good) brush. :T

LOL!!! :) Ooooh, that is very interesting (regarding you buying the cream bronzer a year or two ago). You know, I'm not the biggest Milani fan (I like some of their products but I'm not super knowledgeable about the line) but one thing I've noticed is that they are the masters of taking old, existing products and putting them into new displays. They seem to do this with their eyeshadows too! Frustrating because I never know what's brand new and what's been around for a while. So thanks for the heads-up about that cream bronzer. The little jar is SO cute, but good to know the product itself isn't so cute. lol. I will def keep you posted about the powder if I pick it up. xo

My drugstore are way too slow when it comes to getting these...If they ever have it on sale I might give this a try but 10 bucks is way way way too much for drugstore...(Yup, I am cheap.)

I've given up on drugstore baked bronzers... they are usually so chunky and glittery :(
