You don’t always have to spend the big bucks to look good. Because drugstore makeup is where it’s at sometimes! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The quality of drugstore makeup is drastically improving these days. Just look at the Milani Gilded Desires Eye & Face Palette!
Paint Your Eyes & Cheeks on a Budget
The Milani Gilded Desires Eye & Face Palette features 12 eyeshadows and 2 highlighters for $20. It includes:
- Naked Truth warm yellow tan matte
- Champagne Wasted metallic white gold
- Love Addict shimmering cranberry
- Desire for Gold metallic golden bronze
- Just Bronzing Around shimmering bronze
- Sweet as Honey satin soft pink pearl
- Most Covet Rosé metallic rose gold
- Crazy for Cocoa mid-tone caramel brown matte
- Time to Un-Wine deep burgundy wine matte
- Wood You Join Me deep chocolate brown matte
- Black Tie Affair intense matte black
- Brighten Up My Day shimmering yellow gold highlight
- Highlight Of The Day shimmering rose gold highlight
Everything Feels Silky Smooth
Ain’t no chalk here! Drugstore palettes are notorious for being chalky and sheer. That isn’t the case here with Gilded Desires! The eyeshadows and highlighters are all finely milled with a silky, smooth texture. They practically feel like a cream. Which is super impressive for the price point!
The quality of the Gilded Desires Eye & Face Palette rivals a lot of high end palettes I’ve tried. As the shadows and highlighters all have great pigmentation and blend very well.
And Wears Nicely, Too!
Gilded Desires is an all around win! The eyeshadows last quite nicely over an eyeshadow primer (and concealer, too). Holding on for well over 8 hours without creasing and little fading. You could probably get away with skipping the primer, too. But I recommend priming your eyes first for the best results.
The highlighters pull all the way through, too! They can be sheer and subtle with a light layer. Or built up to blinding intensity. Either way, the highlighters won’t clock out on you early! They also hang around for a solid 7-8 hours with minimal fading.
Get It, Sis!
I absolutely recommended the Milani Gilded Desires Eye & Face Palette! The colors are gorgeous and perfect for fall. There’s good balance for day and night looks. And the quality is amazing. You can’t lose! Especially if you score Gilded Desires from Ulta. ‘Cause you can use a coupon for $3.50 off!
