Milani Cosmetics — Drugstore Luxury

Milani is a quality drugstore brand that was launched in 2002 and was first created for women of color. Now the line extends to all skin types, which is great for everyone who wants highly pigmented products at an affordable price!

I have been lucky enough to try quite a few products from Milani’s varied collection. Below are reviews of three of my (many) favorites.

Sunset Duos Blush and Bronzer ($6.49 ) — This is a wonderful product! The website states that it “delivers a fresh, cheeky blush and a healthy-glow bronzer in one convenient compact! Expertly matched blush & bronzer are pressed into one cake, taking out the guesswork on how to coordinate your makeup.” I completely agree! It comes in 6 duos. I have 01 Sunset City which is a shimmery light brown bronzer and a pretty peachy blush. I like to wear it two different ways. I either take the bronzer and apply it in an E or 3 depending on which side. This means I start at the temples and sweep down to my cheeks, then down to my chin, creating a natural bronzed look. I then apply the blush to the apples of my cheek. Or some times I swirl my brush around the bronzer and blush together and sweep it all over my face. Very pretty and fresh!

Buzzworthy Lip Gloss ($5.49) — I swear to you that my shade of gloss, 03 Bee Rich (a very sheer red) tastes just like a watermelon Jolly Rancher. Yum! This gloss has a nice slanted tip applicator that is easy to use and it creates a very glossy lip. For moisturized and smooth lips, this gloss was formulated with Honey Extracts, Cranberry Seed Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil and enriched with Vitamins A & E. Available in 9 shades.

Runway Eyes ($8.99) This is a unique eye shadow palette. There are six intense eye color bars in one compact. You can use the colors individually or combine them for a multidimensional impact, and they can be applied wet or dry. I have number 08 Catwalk, which include a dark gray, deep blue, burgundy, silver, bronze and white shadows. Although it sounds very dramatic, it is surprisingly wearable. A plus is that the colors last all day!
