If you’re a make-up junkie you really need to know about this US brand

Pride yourself on your ability to discover new beauty brands? So do we. There are resounding squeals of delight in the Roccabox office when we discover our new favorite CLW (can’t live without) brand. The brand that’s taking that accolade this month? Milani Cosmetics: the make-up brand hailing from the U.S, that’s become our go-to for, well, everything. From its super large spectrum of shades to its oh-so-cute packaging, we can’t get enough of Milani. The bonus? Everything is seriously reasonably priced: not as expensive as you’d expect from a brand of this quality, everything in the Milani Cosmetics range has a price point that puts it in that mid-range category that we can afford for everyday essentials. And that's exactly what this brand delivers- everyday essentials that also look bloody gorgeous in our make-up bag. Like we needed another reason to indulge our obsession even more. So if you consider yourself a make-up junkie, then you need to get to know Milani, like, right now.

It's just too hard to whittle it down to just one, so we’ve picked out our three must-have pieces from the Milani collection. You won’t be disappointed….

Powder Blush, £12

Why do we love it?

Erm, hello, have you seen how adorable the packaging is? We LOVE the rose theme: see how the powder compact has been sculpted to look like a rose? SO pretty. If you can bring yourself to actually use this gorgeous product, its highly pigmented powder blush is ideal for creating a pop of colour, or for giving cheeks a natural flush. Coming in 11 rosy shades - continuing with the rose idea, each shade is named after a different rose – there’s a mix of warm and cool hues, with a mix of matte and shimmer finishes. Our fave shades? For a subtle finish we like Romantic Rose - a matte soft blushed pink that suits all skintones; go for Warm Petals when you have a light tan, to give skin a subtle wash of bronze with a hint of gold shimmer; or opt for Love Potion to give cooler skin a pop of fuschia.

HD Advanced Lip Colour, £4.99*

Why do we love it?

So much more than your average lippie, this 3-in-1 lip colour hydrates and nourishes the lips while giving a long-lasting highly-pigmented colour wash. The twelve shades are all so gorgeous it’s hard to pick a favourite (Rich Caramel and Classy Nude are both strong contenders for best nude shade EVER). We’re relying on this to keep our lips looking great and feel kissably-soft as winter’s notorious lip-chapping weather starts to creep in...

Make It Dewy Setting Spray, £13

Why do we love it?

It was seriously difficult picking a third product – we felt so torn between this and a very effective eyeshadow primer – but this hydrating and illuminating setting spray swung it for us as it has swiftly become a make-up bag staple for more than half of our office in recent weeks. Make It Dewy Setting Spray Hydrate Illuminate & Set can be used under make-up to cool and hydrate the skin (making it our gym-bag essential) or as a primer, illuminating the skin as it works its magic. Used over make-up it helps to ‘lock in’ make-up, keeping it place for up to 16 hours. Just think of the nights out you can have with that. Helping to ensure our faces stay crease/smudge/fade free, this has become our make-up hero, especially now that our workdays are morphing in to post-work drinks more frequently.
