Good Makeup at a Good Price: Milani

Since I’m a bit of a makeup snob, I haven’t faithfully used drugstore brand cosmetics for a long time. My biggest issue with drugstore makeup is eyeshadow quality, it doesn’t seem to be pigmented enough for my taste. Since I like eyeshadow with a strong color payoff, this was a problem… until now. I’ve been experimenting with different lines and I’ve found some great stuff recently in drugstores.

Milani_looseeyeshadow_1 Milani Cosmetics has some really great stuff. Everything I’ve tried is super pigmented, from the eyeshadows to the lipsticks. Their eyeshadows are wonderful too. Fans of MAC’s Electric Eel eyeshadow can save their money, Milani’s Atlantis is exactly like this shade. As a bonus, you can depot them and they’ll fit in MAC and Stila pan palettes. They also have some great loose power eyeshadows exactly like Bourjois does… do they look familiar? Hmm… I’m starting to wonder if Milani and Bourjois has more in common that just this.

Next we’ll look at NYX Cosmetics…
