Milani CosmeticsMilani Is a multi-cultural brand that delivers specialty store quality, at value pricing, in hundreds of shades. They use technologically superior formulas creating products for lips, nails, cheeks, bronzes, face, brows, liners and more.

Milani Cosmetics has some amazing products. I have completely fallen head over heels in love with their new Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadows. They are 100% pure color in one stroke application. Bella Chiffon, Bella Diamond and Bella Ivory are my absolute favorite for my brow bone. No matter what look I am rocking, it’s usually one of those three colors on my brow bone. They are so pigmented and fit with any other color or look. I have to be completely honest here (and admit to my obsession), I own all of the Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadows they offer. There wasn’t a single color that I didn’t like and at just $3.99-$4.49 they are very affordable. They are on sale at CVS stores nationwide, or on

A gel powder – what would that even look like? We’ll tell you: It looks like rich, vibrant color that glides on in a single stroke, delivering a stunning multi-dimensional effect. What makes it a gel powder? Well, the formula starts as a gel and then is transformed by a special process into a stunning powder eyeshadow with pure color and power wear. 

The unique process allows you to blend this incredibly innovative, weightless formula easily with your fingertips to light up your eyes. Even more to entice: It can be used wet or dry, resists creasing, and comes in satin matte, shimmer and iridescent metallic finishes. You just have to try this gel powder. It’s that different.

Milani CosmeticsThe Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow comes in 30 illuminating colors in five different shade ranges including nudes & browns, smoky & sky, purples & greens, metallics and brights & lights. I absolutely LOVE the selection of colors and shades. I can mix and match mattes and shimmers or metallics and come up with a beautiful look for day or night. The amount of pigment in these eyeshadows is amazing! I’m not packing on color to get a great look. The one exception I have found to this is the Bella Black which is a deep black satin matte. This black is my all time fav and go to. It’s not like the others. I don’t regret putting the brush down and having it be too dark. It’s darker, but it’s a very buildable black. It’s soft and subtle when you put it on. You can add and build it up to get a DEEP black color. Some people may find this as a negative, but I love it. It makes me crazy when I have a look that is almost perfect and I want to smoke it out a bit so I add a little black (of another brand) and it’s so dark it ruins the look. There is nothing more annoying! I truly prefer a black that I can build on and add more rather then have too much and no way to lighten it. Also any shadow that I can use wet or dry steals my heart. I do use an eyeshadow base, but I love putting my eyeshadows on wet. It seems to make the colors pop to the maximum and I just love the effect. As a side note: Many (most) of the Bella Eyes Gel Powder EyeShadows ARE Vegan. You can check on their website to be sure before you head to the store for your purchase. Sadly, Milani did not mark the eyeshadows that are Vegan in anyway other then by reference on their website.

Of course the other Milani Cosmetics products are equally as great. I also tried out the Superior Radiant Glow Bronzer XL.

These bronzers are great for an all day all over sun kissed glow! The Bronzer XL comes in 3 color sets; Bronze Glow, Fake Tan and Radiant Tan.

Mix and matte with these two-in-one faux tan superstars. The matte half of these versatile compacts deliver a sun kissed base colour and contouring for the face, neck and body. The shimmery highlighter side takes you anywhere you want to glow. The soft, silky finish stays where you want it and lasts all day! I love that these compacts have a matte and shimmery side in one compact. I tend to use more of the matte right now, but I’m also in the Midwest and we are in the cooler winter months. Spring is around the corner so I will be breaking out the shimmery side more often now!! These bronzers are $8.39-$9.99, which is very affordable. They are on sale at CVS stores nationwide, or on The compacts are pretty large in size so they last for a very long time!! These Bronzer XL’s are also Vegan!! 


The Color Statement Lipsticks are another one of my favorites from Milani Cosmetics. These lipsticks have a great color pigmentation. 

The lightweight and creamy formula provides nourishing ingredients like Viamin A, B and E to soothe lips and let you soak in the limelight. In 36 color-drenched shades and with a one step simple application that provides excellent full coverage and instant color, you’ll always look and feel your best! 

I have several of the Color Statement Lipsticks, even though I tend to always lean toward my Nude colors. These Color Statement Lipsticks are $4.99-$5.99, which is a great price for these lipsticks! They are on sale at CVS stores nationwide, or on They do also have Color Statement Moisture Matte Lipsticks. These are not available in as many colors, but there is a matte option for those of you that prefer the matte lip.

I created a fun and easy look with all Milani Cosmetics. I truly loved the look and it got quite a bit of feedback on Instagram. It’s definetly a look I will do again! This look is elegant but also everyday. It was nice and easy and the products were super easy to work with! Milani Cosmetics has eyeliners, eyeshadows, lipsticks, bronzers, blushes and more. All of them are not only affordable and great quality but they are cruelty-free and hold certificates from PETA and Leaping Bunny!! Just more to love about Milani Cosmetics!

Do you own any Milani Cosmetics? Have you tried them? What are your thoughts? Are these products something you’d pick up? I find these are a GREAT drugstore brand and definetly wear the eyeshadows as much as I wear my high end eyeshadows! I love them! They are blend able, buildable and last all day!
