Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow

Are you as excited as I am for the thirty new Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow compacts? This is epic folks, epic!

Milani has created a whole ‘lotta gorgeous shades with a new gel-powder formula. So what on earth is this? It’s gel-like in that it is super smooth and glides onto the skin with just one stroke. But it looks like a powder and feels soft and smooth. You can use them wet or dry and it comes in three finishes: satin matte, shimmer or iridescent metallic. The color line includes Nudes & Browns, Smoky & Sky, Purples & Greens, Metallics and Brights & Lights.

I’m really impressed with these eyeshadows. They don’t appear to be as smooth and pigmented as they really are. A few of them felt a little hard at first touch but once you move your finger across it for a second, they get really creamy. There are so many shades and finish options, I love that! The fact that they are only $3.99 and available at CVS makes them even better because they’re so inexpensive for the quality. You can also find them on Milani’s site.

Are you going to pick any of these up? Which are your favorites?
