Shimmer | Milani Eyeshadows

Saturday, June 20, 2015



Pretty not to mention sparkly eyeshadows are many of the many few things I simply can not resist~ Which is why an innocent stroll through the beauty aisle while I in all reality should be grocery shopping is dangerous. But, hey who could say no to these beautiful eyeshadow pots by Milani?! They're just too dang pretty for their own good~ Okay, okay maybe I'm just making excuses for myself---but, hey a little reward here and there never hurt anyone!

So first comes first serve is the packaging. Two words. Bloody gorgeous. Milani's whole makeup line is Italian inspired and for a drugstore brand the packaging feels quite prestigious. The pretty gold eyeshadow pots are not only eyecatching, but can easily be thrown in your handbag if you're in any need of touch ups throughout the day~

Now of course packaging isn't everything. The most important thing is what lies inside the packaging. I chose the two shades Bella Ivory and Bella Rose. Bella Ivory is a very soft neutral ivory. The champagne eyeshadow has a satin matte finish with a subtle shimmer which is perfect when you're trying to create a more natural subtle eyeshadow look. I've used this almost everyday for the past couple weeks and the color pay off is amazing~

I definitely felt a little bit more daring when picking out Bella Rose. But, look at all that sparkle! Bella Rose is a romantic light pink and is absolutely gorgeous if you're trying to glam up your eyeshadow. The shimmer just adds that extra sparkle to your eyes~ 

Now what's really interesting about these eyeshadow pots is they aren't your typical powdery eyeshadow. The formula of these shadows are gel powder. According to the company's website the eyeshadow starts as a gel, but then is pressed into a powder to develop a stunning multidimensional effect. Sound familiar? *coughs* MAC's Extra Dimension Eyeshadows *coughs* I feel a dupe coming on~ 

Overall, these stunning eyeshadows deliver a gorgeous iridescent finish and for $3.99 a pop who am I to say no?! Time to collect all these babies~
