Milani- Fierce Foil Eyeliner and Kohl liner

 Love these liners so much! Milani has come out with Fierce Foil Eyeliners and they apply with a brush and are super pigmented, stay in place and the colors are fantastic! These retail for $6.99 and the Kohl pencil liner (twist it to advance) is $7.99.

The Kohl pencil is on top and as you can see, it's a thinner line than the potted liners applied with a brush. I like the pots because I feel like I have more pressure control over a brush than a pencil. None of them seemed to easily smear and the pigment was strong with these.
These are really great for the price point and should be easy to find as well so try them out if you've never tested a potted liner!

Milani: Spring 2015 releases- make up madness!

Milani Cosmetics has a ton of new products out for Spring 2015; so many that I've had to break it down into multiple posts to give you a thorough tour of the goods!

Milani's fierce foil eyeshadows are a whole new thing I have never seen! They are creamy and apply with a rubber applicator and are super duper shiny. The application takes getting used to because it is slippery.... yes, slippery and creases on the eye like instantly. If you could layer it over a similar powder shade, it would probably be best because the effect is awesome.
These come in 4 palettes: Milan (neutrals), Rome (purples), Florence (bronzes), Venice (blues) and retail for $9.99 and are available at drug stores or HERE online.
Rome
Top: Milan
Bottom: Florence
Venice
They retail for $9.99 and if they appeal to you, I'd try out one first to see if you can handle the application. I really wanted to love the Venice set but realistically, it creased the most and was most noticeable so the Florence tones would be more my speed.

Zoya: Naturel Satin Collection- swatches

Hi Monkeys! I have the Zoya Satin collection for you today and they're really cool. Their finish is not matte and not a gloss and need no top coat... think of a shinier version of matte with dimension to it. Looks very cool on the nail! 
After the jump for individual swatches. These are available now and retail for $9 each HERE.

OPI: Gwen Stefani - holiday 2014 swatches, part 1

Hi Monkeys, Happy New Year! I have the first part of the very large polish collection from Gwen Stefani that was released for the holiday 2014 season.
Here we go!
A red creme that is a bit jelly and has a some orange intentions
A true red creme that is a show stopper with blue undertones!
A true red that isn't quite a creme but not a jelly.. just squishy fun
A stunning red shimmer creme with fantastic glass flecks of goodness
A deep red\maroon crelly.. not really a creme, not really a jelly
A deep rich purple with a hint of shimmer, love this one!
A super dark purple\red\burgundy creme
 A deep forest green creme with amazing coverage

These are just a few of the new Gwen Stefani colors... more in another post. So far, there are lots... LOTS of reds.. makes sense because it's Gwen's signature color but.. may be a little over kill on the reds.. unless you really love reds. Personally, I can only wear warm colored reds so I'm biased :)
