Hey beauties! I stumbled upon, the new Milani Metallics at my local drugstore. They appear to be part of their Holiday collection (or marketed as such) because they were in a separate display. I choose one shadow palette and lip creme from the collection.
The shadow palette I choose is Metallic 08 Must Have Metallics Everyday Eyes
The swatches are really speaking for themselves. This palette is like a mini UD Heat palette but better. All of the colors are gorgeous!
Eye look I created with the palette.
Milani Metallic Lip Cream: Making Me Matte
Video on the above look.
There were 2 lip cremes in the Holiday display. I chose the darker color Making Me Matte, because I thought it would go along better with the eyeshadow. There was also a lighter lip creme available. Like the name suggests the lippie is metallic. The best thing about it, is that it lasts all day! The down side is that it can be drying. I countered that by applying lip balm first.
I've been using these 2 products all week and I'm pleasantly surprised. The palette consists of 5 shimmers and one matte black and can be used alone to create an everyday or dramatic evening look. I normally don't wear shimmers as an all over/transition color, but surprisingly it worked! Color 1, the largest color in the palette, is a shimmer and I was able to use it as an all over/transition color. It's very pigmented and helped to camouflage my dark circles. The orange and red (colors 3 and 4) blend effortlessly and the gold (color 2) was great as an inner eye shade. Of course you can mix and match them however you choose. Overall, I'm impressed with the performance of these products. Definitely worth the ten bucks, but an even better deal if you can catch them at BOGO 50% off!
