Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipsticks in Siren and Rapture - Review and Swatches

December 30, 2010

Another new addition to Covergirl, are the Lip Perfection lipsticks. There are 44 shades ranging from browns, lilacs, nudes, reds, pinks, and more.What impressed me the most was the packaging. I love that it has a modern, sleek case and the color of what lipstick it is on the bottom. My eyes were completely fixated on getting a nude and I was certain that's what I was going to buy. I knew it, my Mother knew it, everyone knew I would get a nude lip color. But as the New Year is fast approaching I told myself, "No, get something bold that you wouldn't get." So I went for more bold colors.

Brand Bests #12 - Milani Cosmetics

December 3, 2010

In the past, I had always looked over Milani Cosmetics and not really paid attention to the kind of products that they carry. Now I know that they do have some really great products that are quality products with the drugstore price. I’m happy to hear a lot more about the brand through YouTube reviews and many other bloggers. Just know, that I have not tried everything from this brand, so these are just a few products that I have tried, loved, and still use to this day.

Milani EYE TECH Liquid Liner ($6.99)
 I have to say that this is one of THE best liquid liners I have ever used. I will not trade for a different liner, I have this in my makeup bag and use it everyday. I did a liquid liner test a while back, Um like a year back (here is the post) and that test proved that price and brand does not mean a thing. I will never stop re-purchasing this liner and I hope they never stop making it! Haha =D

Milani 3D Glitzy Glamour Gloss ($6.99)
 These came out with their Spring line this year, and I had bought a few right when I saw them. They give you super shiny and glossy lips without all the stickiness some lip glosses can have. I love these, and all the colors are very wearable.

Milani Secret Cover Concealer Compact ($4.99)
I just recently bought this at my local Walgreens and it was on sale for $2.30, so I figured why not give it a try. I was actually really surprised that I like the formula. It gives full coverage and it's very easy to apply. I use my fingers, so that they can warm up the product a bit to make it apply easier. This one is also oil-free, which at first concerned me being that I have dry/normal skin. But it still worked really well and I use now than my MAC concealer.

Milani Nail Lacquers ($4.49)
Milani has some great nail polishes, even coming out with limited edition ones. They are long-wearing, and very easy to work with. I only have a few Milani polishes, but every time I buy some, I know they are going to be very smooth and give gorgeous color. One of my favorites is Milani Dress Maker. A very popular color that was hard to find for some.

So there are my Brand Bests! All prices and pictures are from 

What are your favorites from Milani? Let me know!
