New Milani Eyeshadow Palettes - Bold Obsessions and Most Loved Mattes




I stumbled upon these beauties in my local drugstore but they were totally sold out! Bummer, but only for a few days until I was able to order them directly from Milani's website at $20 each.  The palettes in the store were sold out, but they still had sample palettes to play with and swatch.  The colors looked so pretty and the golden glitter was calling my name.

Each palette has 12 shadows and are cased in a mirrored gold finish.  They also include a full size mirror.  


What's even better are the shadows inside.  Below is the Bold Obsessions palette.  Can you see why I'm crazy over the gold? It's even more beautiful in person.  This palette is a combo of shimmers and mattes, perfectly balanced to create numerous looks.  


A closer view of Obsessions.


The Most Loved Mattes palette is also beautiful, but many of the shades are close to my skin tone.  I just wish there were a few darker shades to create more of a contrast. 


After swatching I see more contrast but I still wish there were a few more dark colors!  I do like that there are several shades of beige (50 shades of beige, lol) because I find they all look different against my skin tone.  It's tricky to find just the right shade that serves as a base color and has some color correcting properties to help with the darkness of my lids. 



The palettes look and feel high quality.  The performance of the Bold Obsessions palette surprised me.  I tried 6 of the shadows and they applied and blended very easily.  They are pigmented and have great color payoff.  I also like the matte palette but honestly I have not used it yet.  

I think these are a great buy for what you are getting.  Their quality rivals some of the higher end brands at half the price!

Impress Manicure Christian Siriano Collection




Hey beauties! Today I want to share Impress Manicure "press on nails" with you, specifically, the Christian Siriano collection.  I've been rocking Impress Nails over the last few months and as a fan of Project Runway I was extremely excited to discover Christian designed a line for the company.  


The great thing about his collection is that most of them are metallic-ey.  A small accomplish but nice because most press on nails are usually opaque.  Christian's nails are glossy, metallic and there's even a holographic set.  I choose 3 from the collection but I will be purchasing more as they are limited edition.  


Here's the holographic set, Stained Glass. I tried to show how they look different depending on how the light hits them.  I got soooooooooo many compliments on this set.  



The lace chrome set (Lacey Rose) is equally adorable and great for Valentines.  



As usual the nails lasted all week!  The down side is that Lacey Rose started to chip/peel at about day five.  Overall I'm really impressed with these press ons.  Christian did a fabulous job!



The Christian Siriano Collection is only available online at impressmanicure.com.
