Best Drugstore Palettes – Oldies but Goodies

 

Hey everybody! Today’s post I’m going to talk about my all time favorite drugstore palettes. As much as I love to talk about new product releases, I want to share with you some of my oldies but goodies favorites here.

Favorite Drugstore Palettes

In this post, I’ll be talking about the best drugstore eyeshadow palettes that I’ve been loving over the past and till this date. As you may notice on the title of this post, you’ll also find some wear and tear from these palettes. All color swatches shown below are without primer and is swiped on bare arms using only my fingers.

Let’s get started!

Milani Palette
US$11.00

First up is the¬†Milani Everyday Eyes Palettes¬†that I fell head over heels over with. As soon as I saw a beauty YouTuber talks about the new launch many moons ago, I started my quest to hunt it down. Soon enough, I found it at Walmart a week later and the rest is history. I’ve been loving this palette ever since. It’s a gorgeous palette! I really like that it has a bright orange shadow that will be perfect for summer wear. While the rest of the neutral colors you can wear them on your no- makeup makeup day.

If you haven’t tried this yet, I’m telling you to run to your nearest drugstore or Walmart and grab one today. For the price and quality, it’s drugstore thumb’s up from me! By the way, did I mentioned that it’s also cruelty free! Thought you might want to know.

elf palette
US$10.00

I’m a fan of e.l.f products and when I saw they launched their eyeshadow palette, I was in cloud nine. It’s rare to find all matte eyeshadows from a drugstore brand but e.l.f sure nails it with the e.l.f. Mad for Matte Palette that houses 10 eyeshadow shades.¬†

Nicely pigmented shadows that’s easily blendable and natural looking but you still need an eyeshadow base or primer if you’re looking for a bold and intense matte finishing then look no further. Here’s something you would love for beginners.

WNW palette
US$6.99

Next in my list of favorite is another Wet n Wild Au Naturel Eyeshadow Palette. If you love natural eyeshadow palette with a hint of plum shadows, then you’re going to like this.

I really have nothing bad to say about the pigmentation as you can see them for yourself. You get a nice color selections of shimmer and matte shadows all in one palette. If it’s calling your name, then do yourself a favor and pick up one today.

cover girl palette
US$9.98 at Walmart

When it comes to Covergirl Eyeshadows Palette, I don’t have much luck with this brand. It’s either a hit or miss. But when I saw their new launch of¬†Covergirl TruNaked Palette at my local drugstore¬†–¬†I was completely sucked in.

To be honest, I don’t put much expectation on this based on past history but I was totally taken a back when I did the color swatch. Turns out, the formula is super pigmented, smooth and soft! All the shades are so versatile that you’ll want to wear them everyday. Definitely give this palette a try!

wnw comfort zone palette
US$4.99

I save the best for last and it’s the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette. It’s not a new release but rather an old palette that keeps me going back to wear it after all these years. The pigmentation is mind blowing. Super pigmented!!! Love that Wet n Wild products are not tested on animals and if you’re environmentally concern then you’re going to love this. I swear by it! Get yours NOW!

How gorgeous is it! Incredibly pigmented formula with the best affordable pricing only available at Walmart or your local drugstores. It’s definitely a winner in my book!

Well there you have it! My favorite drugstore eyeshadow palettes! Which is your favorite palette of them all?

This concludes my Best Drugstore Palette – Oldies but Goodies segment for this month and I hope to do a few more series of the same nature.¬†Let me know what you think or if there’s any products you want me to feature them here on my blog. I love to hear what you think.

Milani Cruelty Free Lipstick |Review & Swatch

Milani Lipstick Nude

I don’t mean to freak¬†you out, but fall¬†is basically here. Fall is one of my favorite season, it’s not that I don’t like summer but I really love the fall season watching as the¬†leaves changes its¬†colors and the cool¬†air seeping in.

According to Fashion Magazine “When artists weren’t dressing up eyes, lips got some attention: previously painted in flesh tones or a quick smear of lip balm, this season mouths moved from red, to brick, to berry to‚Ķblack”. Talking about stepping out of comfort zone! Black lips, that’s another whole new level ūüėÄ

Aargh!!! But I still love my lips but better lipstick from Milani which I picked up recently. Okay! Go ahead and judge me if you want,¬†I don’t care!¬†I’m a basic person¬†clinging onto my comfort zone :P. Did any of you feel this way? I feel that neutral shade could never go out of style but then that’s just my opinion! So, today¬†I just want to talk about it. It’s not a new color released from Milani but it’s a shade that looks better and comfortable on my lips ūüôā

I got the shade 42 in Rose Femme and totally love it. It’s highly pigmented and moisturizing. I blends well and it a gorgeous shade for everyday wear. It’s a muted shade that gives a natural finish.

Right here, I’m sharing with you here a glimpse of my bare lips but I’m going to show you my lips but better lip color down below using my new found love of Rose Femme Lipstick by Milani. That’s the main star of this post, lol!

The importance of wearing a lipstick is that you must feel comfortable, be it by the texture, the formula, smell and the shades. Excellent tips if you want to achieve the look of my lips but better lipstick!

Kylie Jenner lip challenge but this method doesn’t require sucking on short glasses. You heard me right! All you need is a Nude lip liner and draw the line out of your natural lips. I then smudges it with the lip liner and I used an¬†eyeshadow highlighter (White color) and pat it in¬†the middle of my lips for some dimension.

Et voila! a pouty pout which is so easy to create. Milani you did it again, I love how gorgeous the formula is and the staying power. It glides well and very impressive lip finish. One lipstick with many different looks. This drugstore brand is also cruelty free or No Animal Testing on its products. So yay for that! My next pit stop is to pick up the darker shades for the season.

Go for it, if you try being bold with your lip colour this fall, whether it be a cherry red, a plum or ‚Äď if you dare ‚Äď a glossy black. There are endless shades for fall¬†and you decide which shade best¬†represent¬†you.

You can find Milani on their website, drugstores, Well.ca and Walmart.

Liquid Eye by Milani

Seeing is believing!

That’s right love. What a beautiful liquid eyeliner pencil by Milani? Oops! It’s a¬†gel-based pencil ‚Äúliquid-like‚ÄĚ but not exactly liquid. Confused! Well, this formula has all the impact of liquid, but it‚Äôs so much easier to use. Available in matte and shimmer finishes, it glides on and doesn’t smudge. Good news is it has 5 different color options ūüôā

I got mine in 01 Black with a net wt: 0.01 oz for $5.88 at my local Walmart. I noticed that different drugstores and Walmart has slightly different price range and depending on the area you lived in.

Hmm… the packaging seems to have said it all in one breath but hold on, I got more to say. This pencil is very light weight and it has a retractable mechanism. Another thing to remember is that it’s waterproof and smudgeproof. How cool is that! Okay girl, this eyeliner is also paraben freeeee!!!

As the temperature rise and you spend more times outside, the lat thing you want is to have your eyeliner or makeup melt off. So, here is the solution for you by getting a waterproof eyeliner that keeps your eyeliner at bay.

The claim is trued¬†that this eye gel has high color payoff. I wear it on my eyelids and bamm.. lovely eyes…. lovely eyes! The liquid eye pencil glides like butter. It so smooth and easy to blend. You can do smokey eyes or even cat eyes look with this liquid eye.

Oh yeah! You can also draw a tattoo design on your wrist or arms just like so

Have you heard of the Bella Eyes Gel Powder¬†Eyeshadow by Milani? It’s their latest Spring collection eyeshadows in case you’re curious to know.

Milani Makeup Cruelty Free|Swatches|Reviews

 

Hey gorgeous,

I’m back earlier than planned. In fact, I have posted one review yesterday. I miss you guys and I just have to kick start with my blogging as soon as I’m able to sit and type. It’s like the “Die Hard” movie.

Anyways, I really want to talk to you about these three makeup products that I have tried and here are¬†my thoughts and opinion on each. Last Friday, I did a beauty haul and since I can’t wait any longer to try them I immediately dived into swatching the colors and here is my¬†review.

A short announcement – Milani cosmetics is a cruelty free brand company. It does not test on animals according to PETA.

These are my beauty haul which I have posted and for convenience sake here are the products from previous post.

But since I’m only going to do Milani’s makeup review today, I have included all these lovely and amazing products which I will dig deeper into. I suggest that you¬†continue to read to find out what makes Milani products to be my next favorite high street¬†brand.

milani ;istick review

Well, I have been eyeing on Milani makeup line for a while and as strange as it may sound I just couldn’t get a hold of this brand where I live previously. But fortunately, I was in the moon and back when I found Milani at my new neighbourhood Walmart ūüėÄ

Oh!!! oh!!! I’m so excited that I¬†can’t figure out¬†how do I put this? Okay, let me start by saying that this¬†Milani Color Statement comes in a golden lipstick packaging which I think is unique. I love how the transparent bottom able to¬†show the exact¬†shade to choose¬†from.

This color statement lipstick is very pigmented with a matte finish. It feels creamy and it glide easily. The shade I chose was “Naturally Chic” and this color is neutral nude and natural looking for my lips. I feel pretty wearing it. ¬†milani blush review

Oh my gosh! Just look at how stunning this baked blush is? For $9.88 only a pot I’m pretty sure I’ll be getting a few more shades for¬†my collection. I got Corallina in 08 and I just love, love this blush. It’s so freaking pigmented and look at the color on swatch. It has a¬†soft shimmer¬†which is not completely matte finish but it’s not shinny. I only swipe once with my brush to pick up the formula and look at how insanely the color on my cheekbone was! I have to say this again, a little goes a long way with such incredible pigmentation. Ah..mazing!

It’s soft and smoothly blendable. I love the packaging too. It pretty and cute. Inside the second tier is a round mirror and a semi-circle brush. I’m not so sure of the brush but the mirror is an asset for touch-up<3

milani face powder review

This Milani Illuminating Face Powder¬† in Hermosa Rose is lovely to look at and undoubtedly great as a¬†bronzer and blush but less¬†than a highlighter.¬†I would say 85% spot on for a multi purpose product. I notice that the lighter shade in this pot doesn’t¬†bring out the color as a highlighter. The rose-y tone blush and bronzer are pretty amazing.

This product is¬†so pigmented and creamy that my heart is screaming¬†with joy. I love the¬†shade I picked and just can’t get enough of it. So, I will be going there for¬†another round of¬†“Beauty’s Touch”¬†very soon. Oh dear!¬†Did I forget¬†to mention¬†that the rose flowers design on this packaging is stunning and¬†dang cute!

If you are looking for a cruelty free makeup products then look no further.¬†You’ve come to the right place.¬†Milani has an amazing collection of products that can’t stop to impress me.¬†So, you rock Milani!¬†

Thank you for the love.
