Beach Sand is my fav!
Beach Sand is the greatest shimmery nude color for all skin types. I use it dry as my highlighter or wet as my base & it works great! I seen some of the other comments & others saying the glitter was only top layer, Beach Sand has awesome with the glitter! I plan on getting Blue Lagoon & Caribbean Sea and doing a look for a tutorial.
Perfect Drugstore Smokey Eye
I was able to accomplish a great smokey eye with this e/s. It was easy to blend once I got a good amount on the brush. I used it on top of MAC's Painterly and it set my eyes up for the ultimate sultry look ever! I also own a few more colors and they are more explosive if applied with a damp brush.
I first got Leaf Green and I was so in love with it! To get the brightest color payoff - which I did - you have to use it wet, but it's so easy. The next one I tried was Royalty and at first I was disappointed. It wasn't as easy to apply and get such a bright. bold color. But it's still a great color - you just have to work it a bit more.
I got mine on a CVS sale of some sort. Every couple months they have Milani on sale for at least buy 1 get one 50%. So if your thinking about getting some wait it out till they're on sale then it'll be more worth it!
These were the first e/s that I ever did wet and they helped me with the transition =)
One of my favorite eyeshadows
1. I absolutely love this eye shadow! I bought it a couple of months ago, I tried it, and right away, I hated it. I was using it dry, and yes, it did give a very subtle gold, sparkly color but it was dull and not what I expected at all. After wearing it all day, all of this shadow was in my crease and I had used a primer. So, sadly I forgot about it for quite a while. I found it a couple of days ago though and I decided to see how it would look if I used it wet. There was a MAJOR difference. The color that was so sheer before was so intense that I had to blend it out quite a bit and the sparkle was so much more evident. I wore it all day (about 12-14 hours) and the shadow never dulled, never stopped sparkling, and never creased. I did notice that I had sparkles on my cheeks after I applied it, this is to be expected because it is a powder shadow, and there will be some fall out even if it is applied wet. This was not a big deal to me because I love glitter. I also noticed some sparkles on my glasses as well. I always get eye shadow on my lashes so I am sure it is from that. I am going to try to find the other colors because they are just too good to pass up.
These shadows are awesome for them being a drugstore item. They are incredibly smooth and has great shimmer to play with. I have a gold shade (not sure the name of it) and it is very pigmented and I don't need a lot to show the color. Very easy to blend with and is one of my favorite eyeshadows! Also is very affordable.
