Pressed Powders -MILANI -Prep + Set + Glow Illuminating Transparent Face Powder

on 1/18/2019 11:16:00 AM


I originally tried this when it first came out a year or two ago. I ordered off amazon and ended up throwing it away as it had literally no pigment! I'm guessing I just recieved a bad one. I recently bought this from my local drugstore again and absolutely love it. I have oily looking skin that actually is very dry and dull. This sets my makeup without looking heavy or chalky. It gives the perfect amount of illumination, that lit from within look. I will add that my skin didn't get super oily for literally hours, which is insane for me. I am usually oily within minutes.

Lips -MILANI -Amore Matte Lip Creme


I have the shade 'Adorable' and it was so disappointing. It came off darker on my lips than what it looked like in the packaging. The formula is terrible also. It smells good but it's extremely drying and flakes off so quickly. I could be drinking water and it'll flake off. I don't recommend.

Highlighters -MILANI -Illuminating Face Powder

on 1/10/2019 10:34:00 PM


Used this once and I'm absolutely in love with it.

I don't understand how Milani was able to mill the shimmers in it so finely, because I honestly cannot see it on my face, no matter the lighting.

I'm around an NC42, and on me Hermosa Rose is a pink-brown kind of color. A lil more pink, but I still use a lil bit on the perimerter of my forehead as a bronzer and it works. I concentrate most of the product on my cheeks though. It is very sheer and I quite like that, as I can build it up without it ever going overboard. After I've deposited the color where I want it to go, I run my brush on other parts of my face to deposit some of the sheen.

I feel like this product is perfect for natural and quick makeup. It's 2 steps (bronzer and blush) turned into one for me. It's got a nice, natural radiance. I still use a highlighter on top, but I think depending on your preference, you could get away without one.

I think if you like the full coverage look you would absolutely hate this. But if you want something pretty, natural, and radiant enough without emphasizing every pore and texture, I think you'd love this.

Skincare - Face -MILANI -Pep + Brighten Rose Face Oil


I'm a sucker for anything rose scented, and this facial oil has the prettiest scent I've come across in awhile. The oil is light but moisturizes very well and plays well under makeup [I don't wear a lot these days but what I wear I don't want sliding off my face!]. I mostly use it at night underneath my night creams and serums, and put a layer over my eye cream before bed just to lock the moisture in. I like the dropper as it puts out just enough oil, not too much. I also rub it into my nails and elbows if there's any residue left.

The only think I'm not crazy about is that it's a glass bottle and I can be a real klutz at times, but hey, for no more than this costs and how well it does its job I think I can be a bit more careful when handling this! Definitely a repurchase for me!

Palettes -MILANI -Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Collection - All


I have this palette in Smoky Essentials and for reference I am a NC 20 or 25 depending on the season. I have amazing high end palettes with quality shadows that I love. My current fav is Pat McGrath I Subliminal. The transition shade is to die for. I also have a bit of OCD and seeing dips in that shade cause anxiety. I picked the Smoky Essentials up at Target on clearance in hopes of finding a transition shade that can supplement my other palettes. The Smoky Essentials has become essential in my routine. The brow bone and transition shades blend like a dream and are perfect for my skin tone and the other colors are just as nice. I often use the black to smoke out the outer corner. The packaging is slim and compact. I would definitely purchase this palette again and recommend.
