Earthly Elements| Milani Cosmetics


Hey guys!

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.

  1. Great post! And loved the eye look! I’ve only ever tried one Milani product, their baked blusher in luminoso and it’s amazing! Think I might have to branch out and try some more! Xx

        If you have a tj maxx they might carry some stuff from them!! Recently found a lip liner there for under $2 it was awesome! How do you like their lipstick formula? I’m eyeing a few shades!


      2. I wish we had a T.J. Maxx! I have to drive to St. Louis to get to the nearest one! I really love their lipstick formula. The mattes are comfortable, and if you but a lipliner all over your lips then the lipstick over that they wear for a REALLY long time. And the packaging is pretty lol.

        What?? 😩 aw that’s a bummer! I really want to get some next time I stop by, I love their lip liners too. I agree on the packaging, they’d look so pretty sitting on a shelve or desk 😁
