New Drugstore Items: Milani, Maybelline, FOTD

I'm always in the drugstore for one thing or another and what's  the harm in adding an eyeshadow to the to-buy list?  Pack of toilet paper, light bulbs, allergy  med, a lipstick! Works right? LOL

Here's what else I was surprised to see...


Six new Milani polishes for Spring

 

Six new baked shadows.  I swear this last one (2nd pic, right, green) is a dead ringer for MAC Unsurpassable Mineralize Eyeshadow.  I don't have
Unsurpassable, but it immediately caught my attention when I saw it and thought MAC dupe!



New Maybelline Spring Collection

I try to be a modest makeup fiend and picked 1 single eye shadow out of all the offerings.  Check below!
Milani Runway Eyshadow inAntigua.  Yall know I had to swatch as soon as I could, which meant no time for pics, lol.  This appeared to be a taupe-ish shadow infused with gold shimmers.  Neutral, blingy... me likey!  The gold shimmers aren't just a layer on top.  More chunky on the overlay of course, but gold shimmer thru and thru.


On me, Antigua takes on an olive gold appearance.  Not what I was looking for, but it's cool, I used it wet.  The photos I took when I smiled, I didn't like them.  Sorry for the mugging pics,lol

No special deal about the products I used, but I do like that I used a Physician's Formula powder to set my foundation and I finally got MAC's Pink Nouveau and wore it!

Have you seen these new products?
