New Milani Powdered Eyeshadows

I’m in total love! Have you seen the new Milani Powdered eyeshadows? They are awesome!! I went to every CVS in my area at least three times trying to hunt down these CVS exclusive shadows. Finally, after looking with no success, I went to the CVS website and low and behold there they were!

I got most of the colors I wanted, 2 were sold out:( Anyway, they arrived in pretty good shape, although one was slightly broken. My box had been badly abused by USPS so I’m surprised more weren’t damaged. Here are the colors I picked up!

White Lie is a matte white. Its hard to build to a stark white color and kind of chalky. Its matte. It works very well as a highlight. I liked French Vanilla much better. Its a cream color. Even though its also matte, it seemed to apply much easier. Mattes are sometimes hard to deal with though and at this price point I’m not complaining about White Lie! I’ll take it all day long! Brown Stone is a gorgeous chocolate brown. Its matte. The formula is very pigmented and easy to blend. I’m loving Gold Dust. Its a gorgeous gold shade, not to orange:) Yea! Its high shimmer, which I like:) We can all use a little shimmer in our lives!!

Tickled Pink is a soft shimmery pink shade. Shocking Pink is a loud, hot pink shade. Its matte. Its gorgeous, but the formula is a little on the dry side. I still like it though. Just Perfect is indeed perfect. Its pigmented and gorgeous. Its a green with shimmer and it flashes aqua blue in some lights. Woohoo!! I do love a good duo chrome eyeshadow!

On the whole these shades are highly pigmented, with the exception of White Lie and French Vanilla, which swatch ok, but upon transfer to the eye gets a little lost on me. I’m fine with that because these are highlight colors and I don’t want them to be too out there, you know what I mean? I’m very pale, NC 20, so they will probably show up a little better on darker skin tones if you are looking for more of a punch of color. I think out of the two French Vanilla is my favorite.

Milani has done an awesome job with the matte shades. These are notoriously hard shadows to make and even high end lines struggle to get it right. Are they perfect? No, but they are definitely competing with some of the higher end matte formulas. The shimmer shades are beautiful. They are a dream to blend.

These shades are a CVS exclusive. You can get them at your local store or online at http://www.cvs.com. They retail for $4.99 each, what a great deal! Sometimes CVS runs specials buy one, get one 1/2 off. You can also get them directly from Milani at http://www.milanicosmetics.com/ , but you will pay $5.99 for them there.

The only disappointment I had with this order was that one shadow was slightly broken and that they were sold out of Caramel Brown and Olympian Blue, which I desperately need in my life! The hunt is on!

I purchased these items myself and as always, these are my own honest opinions.

20% off Milani Powdered Eyeshadows at CVS Online

I don’t know about you guys, but I have been to every CVS in my area at least 3 times each trying to find the new Milani Powdered Eyeshadows. For whatever reason it escaped me to look on the cvs.com for them…..until tonight!

In desperation I hopped on the web and sure enough, there were the shadows, well, most of them anyway. I really wanted Caramel Brown and Olympian Blue, but they were sold out. Anyway, I was able to get the other ones I wanted and I got 20% off with the coupon code 20DISCOUNT. This code is good until June 24th so if you want some of these shadows, or anything else on the site for that matter (its 20% off everything) hurry up. The discount gives you $1 off each shadow making them $3.99 each.

I did have to pay shipping, grrrrr, but hey, I’ve spent more than that running around from one CVS to another trying to hunt these eyeshadows down.

Of course I’ll haul them when they get here, but in case you are interested I picked up Brown Stone, Just Perfect, Gold Dust, White Lie, French Vanilla, Tickled Pink and Shocking Pink. They were $27.93 after the 20% off, but my shipping was $5.49.

Can’t wait to get them and show them to you!! Have you picked any up or have you been running around trying to find them? Do share!!
