Milani Bella Eyes 01 – 05 Photos, Swatches, and Review


Eyeshadows! Milani! When Milani sent me these, I was ecstatic. Obviously, this was because I have been getting really into it – have you noticed? Milani has created single gel powder eyeshadows that are incredibly pigmented and are blendable.



I have challenged myself to use 5 (in the order of their number) and create 6 looks/6 posts. The first 5 of the eyeshadows were used to create the first look:

– 01 Bella Ivory
– 02 Bella Sand
– 03 Bella Cappuccino
– 04 Bella Caffe
– 05 Bella Taupe





(L-R: Ivory, Sand, Cappuccino, Caffe, and Taupe)


– 01 Bella Ivory

– 02 Bella Sand

– 03 Bella Cappuccino

– 04 Bella Caffe

– 05 Bella Taupe


To create this look, I put down the base of Bella Ivory, Bella Sand from mid-eyelid to outer eyelid, Bella Cappuccino in the inner eyelid, Bella Taupe in the outer eyelid and outer crease and Caffe patted onto the center of the eyelid.








Lipstick is Lime Crime Pink Velvet Velvetine

I’m unbelievably happy with these shades because they are so pigmented and blendable. The texture of these is soft and powdery. I was expecting something bouncy and gel-like, but this is not true at all. In fact, I had to tap my brushes each time I went to grab color with my brush because they are powdery. There is a little bit of fall out, but not enough for me to complain. These can also be used wet. This has been such a fun challenge for me, and I can’t wait to share the next 5 (and the rest, of course) with you all!

What do you think? Will you be grabbing some (or all) of these?

  9. Such a pretty & flattering look!

  10. I love the neutral eye look with the bright lippie!

  11. I’ll have to try these colors. I’m not one to like wearing a lot of makeup so these will help me still feel natural.

  12. I love these colors. Very natural.

  13. I love love love this look! It is so pretty! I am going to have to try these eye shadows. So excited! I love trying new makeup. Especially eye shadows.

  14. Wow these eye shadows look like they are such great quality! I am absolutely baffled by eye shadow!! When I was a little girl I went through a bright blue eyeshadow phase but since then I’ve been pretty baffled by them. 🙂

  15. Love all these colors. The taupe is lovely on you, and really makes your lip color pop!1

  22. Ahhhhh just looking at all these colors makes me overwhelmed – I am NOT an eyeshadow girl by any means! I would love to learn more techniques on how to blend different colors and whatnot though, so thanks for sharing 😉 xoxo

  27. So many beautiful different colours! I literally never wear eyeshadow as I’m not-so-secretly terrified of them. I always get so scared I’ll end up looking like a two year old who’s trying on her mum’s makeup. This inevitably ALWAYS happens too!

    Lovely colours, I love the look you’ve created!

  28. These are all my favorite eye colors! I’ve never heard of gel powder before, but you’ve definitely caught my interest 😉
