A couple months ago every brand was releasing their holiday palettes and sets and now the drugstore brands are starting to release their new makeup products for 2016! It’s so hard to keep up! I have my eye out for a couple of things I’d like to try out and review, and when I saw this display I had never even heard these were coming out. I love Milani and so decided to pick up a couple of I times to review!
🌷Everyday Eyes Powder Eyeshadow Collection ($9.99)
Product/ Packaging This new collection containes 4 eye palettes with different color schemes. These are quite larger than drugstore eye palettes you usually see and what surprised me most was the weight of them. This isn’t lightweight plastic at all like the Wet n Wild 8-pans, giving it a more high-quality feel. Each contain 8 eyeshadows, with a guide in the back and a brush (with a flat lid side, and a denser crease side) that was actually very useful. Don’t throw this double-ended brush away!
Smoky Essentials (smoky neutrals)
Application I purchased Earthy Elements which contains beautiful rose-golds that would suit so many people. The shadows were very soft, smooth, and pigmented-except for the first shade which had to be built up. This hasn’t shown any signs of creasing on my lids and I’m loving this palette so far!
Product/Packaging I was a little shocked to see that they had 8 varieties of lip treatments. But with each having different uses and ingredients, there’s definitely something for everyone. These come in little gloss-like tubes with a large, flat applicator. The oil is pretty thick but doesn’t feel too heavy on the lips.
Close up of the Lip Treatments and their uses.
Application I purchased o3 Rejuvinating Peach Mango, which contains Peach Seed Oil, vitamin E, and anti aging properties. It’s very smooth on the lips, and has quite a strong smell. There’s not really any instructions on how to use this product, but I think the best way using it as a nighttime lip treatment so that in the morning your lips are soft and ready for a perfect lipstick application.
-4 shades, 6 pan palettes
-sturdy, heavy packaging
-smooth, pigmented shadows
Overview (Lip Treatment)

🌷I really loved both items I purchased, and would highly recommend trying these out!
