Do you remember when Milani came out with some palettes and they were all over You Tube for like a week or two? Well, if you do, I picked them up and then never messed with them. I figured I would now!
I wanted to start with the one that really gives me fall vibes, because I am incredibly excited that it is fall.
This palette comes with 5 powder shadows and one base shadow that feels more like a cream than a powder. I comes in beautiful gold packaging and includes a little double ended brush, that really isn’t that bad , but I wouldn’t reach for it. You can get it for $9.99, here!
I am going to say, right over the bat, I am very impressed with this for under $10. It is a very use-able palette, and perfect for fall! I think this is a great alternative to some high-end palettes, like the ABH Modern Renaissance palette, if you are just wanting the pop of orange.
From right to left
- Liner shade that is a bronze plum with a ton of shimmer.
- Specialty shade that is a high shimmer pink champagne.
- Metallic deep bronze.
- Matte orange
- Matte light brown, almost tan, warm toned.
- Powder/cream shimmery base. Is a lot like Colour Pop Alchemy, but with bigger glitter chunks.
I would not use the suggested base product for its purpose. I seems like it would make the shadows crease. I really enjoy it in the inner corner, however.
- I primed my eyes with Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I then set that with the shade “Matt Lin” from The Balm Meet Matte Trimony palette. I also used this shadow to blend.
- I then took the light warm brown and buffed it in to my crease as a transition shade.
- After that I took the NYX Jumbo Pencil in “Milk” and put it all over my lid. It was the only way I could really get the orange to show up the way I wanted. I have used to orange in the crease before, and it looks amazing with out a white base!
- On top of that I patted the orange shade all over my lid.
- I then took the deep bronze shade and used it to deepen up my outer corner and my crease.
- I made use of the liner shade, as, you guessed it, liner. I buffed it under my lower lash line. Then I took the ELF Make-Up Lock and Seal and dabbed a liner brush in it, then dipped it into the shadow. I then created a wing. I am really loving using shadow as winged liner lately.
- I took the specialty shade and used it to highlight my brow bone, then highlighted my inner corner with the base shade.
I really do enjoy this palette, especially for its inexpensive price tag! I think it is a fantastic palette to pick up for fall if you are on a budget. However, if you do have say the ABH Modern Ren. palette or maybe even the Lorac pro 3, I would say it is safe to pass on the Milani one.
