Milani Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Collection

Hello Everyone!



You may remember that I showed a Milani Cosmetics Haul that my mom surprised me with a few products.  You can view that post HERE. Today I wanted to review a palette that is a part of Milani's Everyday Eyes Powder Eyeshadow Collection.

I created a look using this palette as well. I did a separate post because I was focusing on a particular look. I'll link it near the end of this post.



My Thoughts

I ABSOULETLY adore both of these palettes. Seriously these two palette are good as some of my high end palettes. Dare I say almost as good as my Urban Decay Naked Palettes...I would have to say yes! These palettes remind so much of the Urban Decay Naked Palettes, but for a much friendlier cost. These palettes came from CVS and retails for $9.99 If you're a part of CVS's beauty club you get a $5.00 reward for every $50 spent and I think that you can also use your health and pharmacy benefits rewards as well. So go sign up and use your card to get your savings! Now back to the review.

I really like how these palettes are very pigmented. If you read my blog on the regular, you know my feelings on eyeshadow palettes that lack pigmentation, but these really deliver a lot of color. I also like that I don't have to use white eyeshadow to make the colors pop. I can use my MAC Paint Pots and I'll get the same pop of color as if I would have used a white eyeshadow base. I'm really happy that these palettes both have such good pigmentation because I love the shades in both. In these palettes you have a combination of mattes and shimmery shadows. The shadows are really pretty! The shadows also don't fade during the day. I've worn eyeshadows from both palettes and my eye makeup lasted most of the day which is another plus. Fallout is minor. I really like how I can use these palettes without feeling like I'm wasting product because of fallout issues. These shadows also pick up color well with my makeup brushes and I don't have any trouble blending the shadows. I really don't have any complaints about these palettes. I wrote this review as a whole instead of reviewing each palette individually because besides the colors there really isn't much of a difference between the two. These palettes are just that good! I think this collection has two more palettes, and
I highly recommend adding Milani's Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Palettes to your collection!

I also found two other palettes from this collection and I haven't used them yet, but if there is a different in quality etc. I'll let you all know!


Earthy Elements  (05)
Must Have Naturals (01)

UPDATED: I still haven't used the last two palettes, but here are a few swatches
