My Top 8 Picks From Milani Cosmetics
By Sheila Arkee
Over the past couple of years, Milani Cosmetics has become one of my drugstore bargain go-to, cruelty-free brands. Offering exceptional high quality with nothing costing more that $10, there really isn’t much to lose! Here are the standout products which I reach for time and again.
1. Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss
I find myself reaching for these glosses more and more, because they look beautiful and feel great on my lips. Luminous is a dupe for MAC’s Nymphette Lipglass!
2. Baked Blushes
While I’ve had hit-or-miss experiences with baked cosmetics items in general, these pigmented and long-wearing colors are a definite hit. Nab ‘em in Dolce Pink, Bella Rosa and Delizioso Pink!
3. Total Cover Mascara
This mascara makes my lashes so lush, you’d think I was using something much more expensive than just $5. Total cover = total win
4. Color Statement Lipsticks
There is so much to say about the new and impoved formula behind Milani’s lipsticks, but it can all be summed up in one word: fabulous. These are creamy, dreamy delights, and it’s easy to build a collection of colors with these beautiful lippies. Dulce Caramelo is a must-have nude pink!
5. Color Statement Lip Pencils
These lip liners are not only the best I’ve ever found at the drugstore, they’re some of the best I’ve found period. I love how these creamy pencils glide on and blend. Two must haves are Nude and All Natural.
6. Powder Eye Shadow
The texture of these eye shadows is just like what you would find at a higher end price tag. I’m always reaching for mine, especially Brown Stone which is a perfect medium brown.
7. Anti-Feathering Lip Liner
Everyone needs a clear lip liner and this is priced perfectly.
8. Shadow Eyez Eyeliner Pencils
I love creamy pencil sticks for so many reasons – you can wear them alone and they will last forever, or, you can layer them under powder eyeshadows to really make the colors pop.
