Giveaway,Review,Before/After Photos,Swatches: Milani Cosmetics Spring 2012 Collection
Milani, known as the #1 multicultural color cosmetics brand, has twelve new products featuring sixty-three new trend-setting colors. Bright, bold and colorful come to mind as soon as I saw this new line. From color crazed color play, pretty pure pastels to bright statements, these colors seem to be designed for every woman with their own signature style. Constantly seeing reviews, tweets, etc. regarding the brand, I am sampling all of these products to show you how wonderfully affordable this line is, plus they are easy to find in your local drugstores and supermarkets. Make sure to check out my before/after looks with the new collection below!
Eye Tech Extreme Liquid Eyeliner ($7.49) was designed with a fine, felt tip point and easy grip handle; it’s waterproof, non-feathering and paraben-free. Available in one color: Blackest Black.
Brow Tint Pen ($5.99) available in two shades, Natural Taupe and Dark Brown, too have a felt tip applicator and formula that is long-wearing and made to help one fill in or build the brow to make it look more precise.
Baked Eyeshadow Marble ($7.49 each) are available in three shades that are so gorgeous and look reminiscent of major brands already in high end department stores. They are a silky smooth powder and when used wet, their color is even more intense. When used dry, they appear luminous. Shown in Must Have Fuchsia, Copper Excess and Green Fortune.
Runway Eyes Shadows ($6.99) are available in three new shades: Antigua, Golden Touch and Peaches & Cream. Their texture is smooth and can be used as an eyeshadow or eyeliner and also look luminous when dry and more intense when wet. I love the overall shimmer of these colors and certainly have a pearl finish when applied.
Illuminating Face Powder ($9.49) is a smooth blush-bronzer and/or highlighter that gives the skin a hint of color. It is intended to give its wearer that glow-from-within look and is suitable for all skin types and tones. This is available in three shades: Amber Nectar, Hermosa Rose and Beauty’s Touch. The palettes are embossed with different hues of a rose-like pattern. I was immediately drawn to these as I like when one product can do more than one thing. This acts as three!
Specialty Nail Lacquer High Speed Fast Dry ($4.99) is a 60 second nail wardrobe change! I am in love with the flat brush and all 8 shades — as they appeal to the woman who wants bold color as well as neutral, quieter nude tones as well. All Milani nail lacquers and treatments are DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde free.
Crystal Gloss For Lips ($5.49) comes in a full range of mega-shine colors that leave lips looking soft and supple. All bases were covered as they have finishes in cream, pearl and shimmer depending on the color chosen out of the 8 new shades. You can wear these alone, over lipstick or mix them for a fun new color option.
Haute Flash Lip Gloss ($7.49) are available in 6 new colors, have full coverage with a non-feathering application. There is a slight scent of vanilla in these and you can wear this shimmer lip gloss alone or over lipstick. I say to apply dots you lips in many colors and see what new shades you can create as well. Have fun with these flirty colors!
Once again, I must reiterate how I love seeing the new products at a lower price point with a larger availability. I can walk into so many of my local drugstores and buy these products without having to leave my wallet at home! Milani…you are a beautiful brand and I applaud that you are for all shades and skin tones.
