Milani Illuminating Face Powder in Amber Nectar

Milani recently released a line of 3 Illuminating Face Powders for their Spring 2012 collection.  These multi-purpose powders come in 3 shades, Beauty's Touch (pink), Amber Nectar (coral), and Hermosa Rose (peach), and can be used as a Highlighter, Bronzer, or Blush.  The different colors of the rose pattern combine to form a slightly shimmery, soft shade.

I decided to pick up "Amber Nectar" because I figured it would look the best on my skin tone.

Milani describes "Amber Nectar" as a Coral shade, but it looks more like a light Golden/Bronze color on my skin.   I use this as a highlighter for my upper cheekbones, and brow bones.  The application is really smooth, and I never have a problem with it being chalky.  The color is also VERY pigmented, so it would work well as a Blush or Bronzer for those of you with lighter skin tones.

Overall:  I really like this. The powder applies nicely, and it has great lasting power
