Eyeshadow palettes can be super convenient for travel and variety but sometimes I find myself wanting a little more. A little more shimmer. Or a little more matte. Or a little more color. I’ve been coming across (and hauling lol) some really great palettes lately but it’s always nice to have an arsenal or eyeshadow singles around to create the look your heart desires.
Building an army of shadow singles sounds expensive at first but it definitely doesn’t have to be. More and more drugstore brands are hopping on the bandwagon releasing their own line of individual eyeshadows to give your favorite palette a boost.
Recently, Milani joined the gang with their line of Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadows with over 30 shades ranging from everyday neutrals to bold pinks, blues and purples. The formula is described by Milani as a gel powder hybrid with vibrant color that glides on in a single stroke with a vegan, cruelty-free formula.
I’d say that’s about right! The Bella Eyes Gel Powder Shadows have a velvety soft texture and buildable coverage that’s sure to make your high end shadows a little jealous. I currently own 6 of them including:
- Bella Rose fuchsia pink satin matte
- Bella Caffe ash brown satin matte
- Bella Mandarin light orange satin matte
- Bella Violet shimmering violet purple
- Bella Khaki shimmering dark green
- Bella Espresso dark brown satin matte
If I had to pick faves it would hands down be Bella Rose and Bella Khaki. Bella Rose is great for popping in my inner corners to brighten my eyes. Or even on my lids paired with a darker purple. Then there’s Bella Khaki which is pure heaven on brown eyes. It really makes my eyes pop and adds a nice touch of color without trying too hard. If you’ve been looking to beef up your shadow collection without breaking the bank I highly recommend hitting your local drugstore and picking up a Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow or two.
