In case you didn't know, I'm quite unhealthily(ish) obsessed with makeup palettes. Especially when they're filled with pretty eyeshadow hues. I should probably join some sort of support group for palette addicts, but that's simply not happening.
Instead, I present my latest love: Milani's Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Palette.
Milani is one of my absolute fave drugstore beauty brands. Most of their products work just as well as anything you can find from a high-end cosmetic line, but are much more reasonably priced.
Their latest palette has been around for a few months or so, but they've added a couple different color options for Spring 2016. The current collections are:
- Must-Have Neutrals- Cool Neutrals
- Bare Necessities- Warm Neutrals
- Smoky Essentials- Smoky Neutrals
- Plum Basics- Plums & Mauves
- Earthy Elements- Terracotta & Earthy Hues
- Vital Brights- Cool Brights
All of them are super gorgeous, but I'm completely in love with the Bare Necessities palette (featured picture, above). The colors are perfect for all skintones, and the colors are all great neutrals to have on hand to bring your look from day to night. The hues are in the taupe/brown family and range from matte to shimmery shades.
The colors are all super smooth, very blendable, and crazily well-pigmented. I honestly have yet to find another drugstore brand that offers nearly as much color payoff.
This particular palette is perfect for everyday use. You can use all of the shades for a more bold look, or pick and choose shades for something more soft. I like using all of the shades, but my favorite combo is the lid color, contour hue, and base shade paired with dark brown liner. It makes my eyes pop without going overboard.
The absolute best part is that each palette is about $10. I'd probably shell out at least three times the amount, so it's really a fab deal. Plus, since the sets are so affordable, you can treat yourself to a few guilt-free! Huzzah! Grab the neutral one for everyday use, the darker smoky palette for going out, and one of the brighter-colored ones just for fun!
Happy shopping, pretty fashionistas!
