Milani Cosmetics "Bella Eyes" Gel Eyeshadow swatches!

Good evening Zombies!

I am SO excited about this post! I have all 30 of the brand spanking new Milani Cosmetics "Bella Eyes" gel eyeshadow swatched for you! This collection is beyond beautiful and the quality is just excellent, especially considering how wallet friendly they are! "Bella Eyes" can be found anywhere Milani is sold (in your area) or online for $3.99 a pop! 

So, let's just dig right in! PLEASE be sure to click images for maximum awesome!

What are "Bella Eyes"? Well, per the Milani Cosmetics website, they are

"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 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."

SWATCHES!! (Everything was swatched over a sticky base.)

I adore Bella Teal, Bella Taupe, Bella Rouge, Bella Violet, Bella Black and Bella Copper. To be honest, there isnt a color here that I didn't "ohhh" over as I swatched it!

Bella Eyes are so smooth and buttery and blend exceptionally well. Bella Black is just that, a super pigmented black! I am so impressed with this line that I could scream it from the mountain tops! Milani continues to up their game as the years go by by cranking out killer products. *fist bump Milani!*

Full hand swatches. Second set was take with my iPhone 5s.

  1. Holy cow! Those are so gorgeous! I'm so glad that they will be permanent because I can't afford all of them at once and I definitely need to own all of them!

  2. AHHHHH SUCH EXCITE!!!! I can't wait for mine to come in!! These look beyond amazing!

  3. great swatches of all the shades!!

  4. Oh wow. I haven't lemmed this hard in months- these are gorgeous and I needed to see which ones to pick. Thanks Wendizom!

  5. GEEZ I want these now, ugh. Yours is the first post I've seen that actually made me want to run out and buy every color. I think I need Bella Emerald because I love greens and I don't think I have too many true emerald shadows.

  6. OMG these look so bad ass!! Gots to grab some for sure!

  7. Hi! What sticky base did you use? I love these, but find that they apply a bit sheer with a brush or sponge applicator. Milani recommends using your fingers to apply, but it's not always practical. A white base or a glitter base seems best - what do you suggest?

    1. Hi there! For this post I used Pixie Epoxy. Normally, if an eyeshadow is really glittery, I'll use Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue or Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy. I use NYX Milk as a base for daily use over primer. It always brings out the eyeshadow color. It fun to experiment with different bases. I hardly ever use eyeshadow over primer on it's own. Bases just make colors pop.
