Milani Limited Edition Bella Blue Lipstick and Lash Art Colored Mascaras Photos, Swatches, and Review

| 80 Comments

Blue has become an important staple in makeup because it is such a bright and stand out color. So, when Milani put out this LIMITED EDITION collection, I knew I would need everything from this collection (the nail polish will have its own review soon!).

The Bella Blue Collection includes:
– Limited Edition Lash Art Colored Mascaras in Bella Blue, Azure, and Mediterranean Blue
– Limited Edition Lip Art Saturated Lip Color in Bella Blue
Limited Edition Gold Label Nail Lacquer in Bella Blue

When I saw all this blue, I was super inspired by the blue and thought of our upcoming patriotic Holiday, 4th of July, our country’s birthday! How could I not incorporate red and white?

The mascara has a wand that helps apply the color as evenly as possible on the eyelashes. For my dark eyelashes, I was really impressed with the color deposition.

And, here’s how it applied:

Eyeshadow used:
– Jordana Eternal White Eyeshadow Pencil on lid as base (inner corner)

And, finally let’s discuss the lipstick. It was actually much sheerer than I expected. I was hoping for an opaque blue with shimmer. Nevertheless, it was stunning like a sapphire and it did not stain as I thought, either.

And, then I thought I’d switch out the blue lipstick for those who would rather stick with a red lipstick. I chose MAC Queen’s Sin, a gorgeous frosted red that looks more like a foil red. It’s such a delicious red that I wish I could see it made permanent – this shade is such a firecracker!!

  2. i love the blue mascara on you! not sure i could rock that blue lipstick, but you do!

  3. I love both looks on you (you can TOTALLY pull off the blue lipstick, which is a very hard thing to do!) but I have to say that the red looks stunning and something I’d look into purchasing myself!

  4. That mascara is AWESOME! And the blue lip is surprisingly not costume looking–you did a great job incorporating it so it feels natural and wearable!!

    • Thank you – It was kind of nice that it is sheer and sparkly! I didn’t even feel like I was wearing a blue lipstick, but I’m sure I won’t be seen outside the house wearing this unless it’s Halloween! 😉

  5. I just uploaded my 2014 summer essentials. You should check it out and like it 🙂

  6. Honestly I’m far far too pale to wear blue makeup, but it looks amazing on you makes your eyes sparkle so much 🙂

  7. Really like this collection! I have always wanted a blue lipstick. Your reviews are always so helpful!
