Milani Eyeshadow Review

Since I have been away from blogging for a couple of months, I don't know if I am late to the bandwagon, or if I just hadn't seen much about these eyeshadows. I have been consistently watching YouTube and I have only seen one video about them.
The eyeshadows I am referring to are the Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow. The video that I watched that sparked my interest was a video from KathleenLights, which I will link at the end.





Now for the review. On Milani's website the shadows are described as a gel powder, meaning it started as a gel formula then it went through some process to turn it into a powder. I am not entirely sure what that means because to me it would seem that by that description that it would be slightly like a cream eyeshadow. It doesn't seem anything like a cream eyeshadow to me. It looks like a baked eyeshadow, and is really soft to the touch. 
There is 30 colors total in this formula, but I only picked up two of the shades. I bought them at CVS, and at the time they were having buy one, get one 50% off. I didn't want to go crazy so I decided to go with Bella Champagne and Bella Emerald. In KathleenLights review she said that Bella Champagne was hard to build up, and went on super sheer. That is the truth! Even though she said that in her video about the shadow, I still opted to pick it up just because lately I have been doing a minimal makeup look (or not wearing any makeup at all) and this shadow is perfect for those days I just want a sheer sweep of color on my lid. It pretty much my skin tone with shimmer in and I love that.
The second color I picked up, Bella Emerald is a great deep green. It is perfect now for this time of the year since it's such a beautiful holiday color. It is very pigmented and glides on smoothly.
I plan on picking a few more colors up after Christmas, and I will do more reviews on some other shades that I pick up.

Epic Fail

So my last attempt to get back into blogging was a complete and utter fail. I got so caught up in school, I didn't even think to blog, or anything. Well now that my classes are finally over for the semester I will now have a whole month to blog and get back into the swing of things.
A lot of things have changed and happened to me in the past 4 months since I tried to start blogging again. I don't even know where to begin with it all. I might just skip all the details and just say, I have done a 180 change! All for the best, of course.
But overall, I am super happy to get back into blogging and talking about the things I love most; clothes and makeup.
As the time passes, I will slowly fill everyone in on what's been going on in my life, but until then I'll just keep everyone wondering!
It's my favorite time of the year, and I am so glad to start blogging at the start of the seasons. So many outfits posts, and makeup posts to come!

Back to Blogging!

Well as you can see I haven't blogged since early June. I got really side tracked this summer with all these vacations I went on I didn't even remember to blog anything. Plus this summer I tried not to buy much new makeup, so I didn't really have much to blog about. And with all my vacations I wasn't really thinking about posting my outfits. But now I am back and it feels so good! I have bought so many new things recently that I am gong to be testing out so I will have some new makeup posts up here before you know it. 
And since it is almost fall, and fall is my favorite season, I will definitely be doing some fall outfit posts because I have bought some new fall clothes so I will definitely be sharing that with everyone! 
I also hope to be doing a small giveaway soon to thank everyone for not unfollowing my blog in my absent time. I will be buying some stuff soon for that and will have that up in the up coming months. I have school too so I won't be able to be blogging a ton, but I hope to be posting about once a week. 

Thanks for understanding!
