The Milani is a bit more powdery with more fallout, but otherwise very similar. The Milani swatches more pigmented also but when you swipe your finger across the surface more dust falls off. It's not an exact dupe, but very similar.
So I don't have anything to do today because I'm on vacation and my car is in the shop :( So here are some heavy swatches I just took. Sorry I only have a camera phone so the quality isn't too great, but it does show the color pretty well.
Here are some heavy swatches (to show the color differences, on the cheek there is even less difference)
L to R: Lightyear, Luminoso, The Peach base + Pinky swirl (no golden swirl) of Lightyear
No Flash in Natural Overcast Light. You can really see how the Milani is a shade more apricot/orange than Light year.
Just for Fun comparison. Solar Ray (Left) VS Light year. (Left). You can see how solar ray has more shimmer, and is a bit more darker peach. They look pretty dang similar on my cheek. (I have very little of the orange swirl)
