Yummy411: Smokey Eye Week! Day #3 and Milani Lip Mixer

Okay, so the Smokey Eye week didn't go as planned, but! The looks are forthcoming so let's get on to the show.

I decided to do a traditional smokey eye. The other looks were very light and soft and not quite as smokey. In person, yes; in pics, no.

Loreal HiP paint in Witty
Smokey Eye Palette
Lightest color all over the lid
Carbon on the lid
Sparkly gray color in the crease
Silver shadow at tear ducts
Revlon liquid eyeliner to line top lid
Urban Decay's Zero liner on waterline
Urban Decay's green metallic liner (from the VIP liner set on bottom lid)
topped with a bit of Satin Taupe eye shadow
Maybelline Colossal mascara on top and bottom lashes
Dermablend concealer in tan
Laura Mercier's Secret Brightening Powder
Cork and Swiss Chocolate e/s in brows, concealer to sculpt and shape

MAC matte gel in t zone
Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Dark
MAC Blot Powder in Medium Dark in T zone

Eversun Blush

**Milani Lip Mixer lip gloss**
I originally wore Propogate lipstick and VG 5 lipglass

The Drugstore Paparazzi has been quite lazy lately. It's hard to believe that Milani has released some new products before I could post on the other newly released items from October. I guess I'll put it up soon for archival purposes =p Not only did I spy the new Milani stuff, I saw the Sally Henson for Traci Reese nail polish colors in my neck of the woods! Can't believe it! I saw some new L'Oreal products and nail colors.. yum! I told you the Drugstore Paparazzi has been feeling a little lazy lately. Not even any cam phone pics of these finds... =/

Among the new products- Mousse Foundation and squeeze tube glosses- one special product caught my eye! Lip Mixer lip gloss! It boasts shine and a 3 mix lip gloss in one. Check out the pics and swatch.

Here in the tube from left to right, you have sparkles, middle you have a shimmer coat (more metallic sheen in my eyes) and the bottom layer (far right) is the cream color. Once the doe foot applicator is taken from the tube, it passes through all 3 layers to give you a load of shine and product.

I got the color called Lip Mix. It's the nude shimmer color of the 6 or so colors released.

This picture makes it seem bronze colored with shimmer, which in essence it is, but when applied to my lips I get more of a nude sheen with a silver pearl. I adore this! This will be at the top of my lip gloss pouch for everyday wear!

Check those lips baby!

Have you seen this Milani gloss in your drugstore? Have you tried this gloss? What do you think?

Gangstarr Girl said...

I've always wondered about Milani as a brand but was too nervous to try it. You know, you get what you pay for. But wow, now that I've seen it, I think I'll try it. Also, will you be doing a purple smokey eye? Just interested in trying non-traditional smoky eye looks but I need guidance, lol.
