How are you beauties?
I am doing great thank you. I have been on cloud nine since Tuesday 🙂 I am now a permanent resident in the USA.
I need to do a blog post on my experience with the whole immigration process. So keep on the look out for that.

I have been super excited to try these new Milani -Gel Powder Eyeshadows ever since I saw them on going around on Instagram.
I just picked up 2 from this collection, I actually picked up another colour but I dropped it and it was the last one. I was pretty upset with myself. But I think I want to pick up 3 more shades: Bella Mandarin, Bella Teal & Bella Taupe,Or maybe whole collection would like to come home with me 🙂
Milani released 30 new eyeshadows in this collection.
They have also replaced their old eyeshadows with these new ones.
The shadows come in satin matte, shimmer and iridescent metallic finishes.
They can be used wet or dry
They also claim that they resistant to creasing. I do not have an issue with eyeshadows creasing on my eyes. So I can’t tell you if they do or don’t
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 2 I have are really pigmented and true to colour.
They are not powdery
They apply well to my eyes
They look bouncy, but they are not.
They are not gel like when you touch them, but I think the ‘gel’ term comes from how the product is actually made
How To as per Milani:
Apply using ring finger or brush for luminous eyes in one stroke. Use lighter shades on brow bone as a highlighter, mid-tone shades on the lid and deeper shades for contouring in the crease.
Use any shade WET as a liner to create intense color or added definition for limitless, multidimensional looks as unique as you!
I have used both of these with a brush and with my index finger and they work well. But I would have to say you get more colour pay off if you use your finger. And there is nothing wrong with using your finger tips to apply makeup. Our fingers are actually some of out best tools for when applying makeup.
I have only used them dry and I have not tried using them with my fix+, but I can imagine the colour would be on and popping 🙂
I found mine at Walgreens for $3.99 which is not bad for a good quality shadow. I have also heard you can find them at CVS.
I do not think you need to go out and purchase every colour from this line, but there are some pretty colours in this line of shadows.
Below are Swatches
14 Bella Violet – I did rub my finger in the product twice
18 Bella Emerald – I did rub my finger in the product twice
Bella Emerald has got to be my fav one out of the 2 that I own.
Have you beauties tried any of these? what do you think?
