What originally caught my eye about this foundation is the packaging. It’s simply beautiful to me! Tall, sleek glass bottle with a glossy black cap with very little writing. It’s simple, yet attractive!
Although I didn’t read any reviews on this, I decided to pick this foundation up anyway because it looked so elegant. So how does it perform?
Check it out!
On my way to the photo counter to pick up some prints I, of course, got distracted by the huge cosmetics section in Walgreens. I mean this one is pretty huge and they carry quite a lot of Milani products!
Remember the Milani Baked Blushes I just couldn’t resist? Well along with those, I also picked up a couple of Milani’s Glitzy Glamour Glosses for about $6 each!
These were a total impulse buy for me. Before I walked into K-Mart that day I had never read any reviews or seen any swatches for this product so I was a little leery about the formulation and pigmentation at first, but the packaging really helped me get over it. I just love it!
Boy they weren’t kidding when they said, “Big things come in small packages.” These trios are EXTREMELY nice. Very nice formulation for a very affordable drug store brand. The pigmentation is simply amazing.
Of course some shades are a little powdery but for $2.99 at Walgreens these babies are definitely a steal! They pack a big punch for very little. Check out what I mean!
I’ve made an order from Cherry Culture before (shame on me for not posting about that yet!) and they are a pretty nice site! They offer discounted cosmetics for brands like NYX, Milani, LA Girl, and many other brands. For Valentine’s Day, they had a 20% off sitewide sale so I decided to try out a few NYX products I’ve been itching to try.
I ordered five of the Carribean Collection eyeshadow palettes, four Ultra Pearl Mania loose eyeshadows, two powder blushes and five Mega Shine lipglosses.
I have been eyeing these for quite some time and I finally decided to take the plunge!
They feel creamy, smooth, and are very pigmented! I really like them so far!
When doesn’t ELF have a promotion going on? Sheesh.
This time around ELF was offering either free shipping with a purchase of $25 or more or you could score 10 free mineral eyeshadows. Yes 10!! I was in desperate need of some blushes anyway, so I went ahead and made an order.
Hit the jump for some swatch loving!
I have fallen in love with lip colors! Tinted balms, lip glosses, lipsticks……I’m just loving it all!
Now I’m not exactly a professional so I just wanted some affordable, nice quality lippies that I could practice with and possibly wear daily. Something creamy, slightly moisturizing and not too matte. My search led me to ELF’s Essential line of lipsticks. I’ve seen countless nice reviews and looked through so many lovely swatches. I liked them all!
I just had to indulge! Plus they’re only $1! So what could I really lose, right?
