bella eyes gel powder bella cafe

Milani Belle Eyes Gel Powder in Cafe.  You guys.  You guys.  This eyeshadow makes me happier than makeup should be able to make a person.  The texture is buttery smooth, there’s no fall out, blending is a dream, pigmentation is great… There is literally nothing bad I can say about this stuff.  Cafe is a perfect dark crease shade with a satin matte finish.

cappuccinoMilani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow in Cappuccino.  What I said about Cafe goes for this shade as well.  Pigment, blend-ability… It’s all there.  This shade is much prettier than it looks here; more of a cool toned almost taupe.  A great shade for blending out edges, or a lighter crease shade for more casual looks.  Matte satin finish.

mascaraMilani Runway Lashes Mascara.  Ridiculous.  This mascara is straight up ridiculous.  In the best way possible.  The formula is on the dry side so lashes don’t clump together, but it’s not so dry that it forms clumps if you want to layer it up.  Length, volume, and no smudging.  Maybe a teeny but of flaking, so I wouldn’t wear it on the lower lashes.  Still, a definite winner in my book.

comfort zoneWet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Collection in Comfort Zone.  This particular color set is an old favorite among beauty bloggers.  I got it specifically for the three bottom colors on the right, not thinking about how they don’t make my green/blue eyes pop.  Whatevs, still love them.  (And they’d be fantastic on brown eyes.)  There is a lot of fallout with this pallet but the pigmentation cannot be freakin’ beat.  Like, damn.  And the “brow bone” shades don’t look like much (I even think they look like bad brow bone colors in the pan) but they work really well on the eyes.  I’ve gotten some fun looks from this pallet.
