Good afternoon zombies!
I'm back with the blues for you! No really, actual blue products!
Milani Cosmetics recently released a mini limited edition collection of "Bella Blue" mascara, nail polish and a lipstick. I was lucky enough to receive the set to share with you!
The nail polish!
Look at those sparkles!
Look at my fancy blue mascara! I have two different colors on. Bella Blue on the left eye and Azure on the right. Bella Blue lipstick is on my lips and I'm wearing "Like a Virgin" blush from Sugar Skull Minerals.
I love the mascara in this collection. Azure is my favorite as there are fine silver sparkles in it! The wands are flexible and small, which is perfect for getting up close and personal with your lashes! There is great color payoff, but you do have to be careful as there tends to be a bit of clumping if you go too crazy with your application. (Nothing an eyelash brush can't fix.) Bella Blue nail polish is also beautiful! It has many dimensions of color. In the bottle you can clearly see pink, blue, and purple shifts throughout the dark base. Once swatched however, the pink and purple were lost and I just see blue glitter. I'm curious to put it on my nails and see if there are defined color shifts. I'll keep you updated!
My least favorite item was Bella Blue lipstick. I had a hard time getting any color payoff and once I did (about 6 swipes of my lips later) it faded pretty quickly, especially right in the middle of my lower lip. That's one of my biggest pet peeves about a lipstick. If it doesn't bug you, you may really like this lipstick. It's also not as BLUE as I was hoping, judging from what I saw in the tube. It's almost purple based, which is still fun, but it's just not...blue. It was still smooth and moisturizing, which is on par with Milani lip products.
Milani can be purchased online or most US drugstores. Check out the "Bella Blue" collection before it disappears!
