Milani Baked Marble and Metallic Eyeshadows Swatches

Hey guys! I've been gone for a while since my computer has a virus! Anyways, I wanted to share these eyeshadow I have been obsessing over! I've been testing them out for a while so I am quite familiar with their formula. I first noticed them when I was on my hunt in CVS looking for the Milani's new one coat glitter nailpolishes. On the display next to them I noticed these baked eyeshadows.

After trying four of these for the first time I was in LOVE and purchased many more. For sure I knew I loved these so much I purchased 6 more of them last week once again during the BOGO 50% off sale in CVS. So here's a compilation of all my hauls!

Milani Baked Marble and Metallic Eyeshadows Swatches With Flash

These remind me a bit of MAC Mineralized eyeshadows but I wouldn't say they are the exact dupe since the colors are different however the formulas are the same. If you like MAC Mineralized eyeshadows then you'll definetly love these! Plus I love how they were half the price of MAC eyeshadows and I purchased more of them during the weekly drugstore sale!

The method of wearing any baked eyeshadows can be tricky at first, but some ways I applied them were:
- As an all over color with Urban Decay Primer Potion underneath, NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk, or MAC Greasepaint Sticks

- Apply them wet by either wetting the brush or taking some product on a brush and applying Fix+

-In the center of my eyes on my normal eyeshadow for a three dimensional look

I love these so much I will definitely purchase more colors soon! They are limited edition in CVS but I saw that they are now available on Milani's website, and Walgreen stores.

Thanks for reading!
