Recent Makeup Looks 3/1/2015

So clearly I’ve been slacking on keeping up with my 100 days of makeup posts! I’ve actually been slacking a little with doing makeup every single day but shhh! We don’t have to talk about that part. As as it turns out, it’s really hard to do something every single day but I want to kick myself in the butt and get back to the program! My husband started a new job recently which means we’ve been getting up much earlier which means I should have more hours in the day to beat this face from now on! 😛

Anyway, here is one big, gigantic post full of all of the makeup looks I’ve done since my last 100 days of makeup post!

Day 8

Using Sugarpill Poison Plum, Melt Cosmetic’s Dark Matter and the Too Faced Pretty Rebel Palette for this eye look! The rhinestones are just regular ole’ craft store gems glued on with eyelash glue. My lips are MAC lipliner in Stone topped with Sigma Beauty Lip Vex in All Heart, which is such a gorgeous chocolately color! Lashes are Red Cherry 74’s. I felt like I was ready for a performance with Cirque du Soleil! 😛

Day 9

Went for a pretty casual eye using Makeup Geek’s Vanilla Bean, Peach Smoothie, Frappe and Cocoa Bear + Urban Decay’s X and Red Cherry 83 lashes but I couldn’t resist using NYX’s High Voltage in Dirty Talk on my lips! Such an insanely gorgeous shade of brown.

Day 10

Can you guess who got a big package of Glitter Injections in the mail? This girl! First instinct was to top Limecrime’s Chinchilla lipstick with this gorgeous glitter.

Day 11

A pretty pinky look in anticipation of Valentine’s day! Used a concoction of shadows from Makeup Geek, Sugarpill, Urban Decay and Too Faced plus more glitter from Glitter Injections! Lashes again are Red Cherry 83’s.

Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow Review

Finding good quality eyeshadows on a budget can be a challenge but lately I’ve been on the hunt for some nice drugstore eyeshadows to share with you guys and Milani is proving to be a good option with their Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadows! These eyeshadow pans come in 30 different shades consisting of satin matte, iridescent and metallic finishes and will run you only about $4 per shade. Not too shabby!

Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow in Bella Mandarin and Bella Ivory

OVERALL REVIEW: 7.75

Packaging:  Gold plastic. Easy to open and close, stays shut. Feels sturdy enough so far. 7/10

Longevity: With a primer these eyeshadows held up well and I didn’t have any issues with creasing. 8/10

Application: Super easy to apply and blend, even with fingers. Picks up well on a brush. 9/10

Texture: Soft and very smooth to the touch although I don’t quite understand the gel claim. 7/10

For this look I’m using Milani’s Bella Mandarin, Bella Ivory and the Anastasia Maya Mia Palette topped with Red Cherry #43 lashes. Lips are Wet n Wild’s Megalast Lipstick in Just Peachy with NYX Butter Gloss in Apple Strudel.

I wanted to pick up several more of these shades but unfortunately these two were the only ones I got my hands on. I wish I had been able to buy more to give you guys a better idea of the whole collection but I tried. 😛 I bought them at Meijer and their display was practically empty and many of the pans left behind were broken. The dome of eyeshadow had separated from the packaging and was just kinda hanging out in there, all sad and unattached. I’m not sure if that’s a common problem for these shadows or if someone at Meijer just got a little rough but I still managed to make it out with these two beauties, nonetheless!
