I’m sorry I’m a little late on this post. I’ve been waiting for some of the pieces to appear in store to give you a lot more to look at from this collection, even though I was sent a few items, too. I did see a few of these pieces (a couple of the Constellation Gel Eye Liners and polishes) left. One of the ladies working at one of the stores I went to told me that one of her co-workers actually bought out the lipsticks. Both of us, hands on hips, shook our head disappointed, but hey, I guess the struggle is real with makeup, isn’t it?!
The Milani Fall 2014 Limited Edition Bedazzled Collection for Eyes, Lips & Nails includes:
LIMITED EDITION Constellation Gel Eye Liners (includes a brush in each):
– Enchanted Black Opal
– Enchanted Lapis
– Enchanted Emerald
LIMITED EDITION Matte Lipsticks:
– Enchanted Amethyst
– Enchanted Topaz
– Enchanted Ruby
LIMITED EDITION Color Statement Nail Lacquers:
– Enchanted Emerald
– Enchanted Garnet (Shown in picture above)
– Enchanted Sapphire
So, as you can see, I am ONLY missing 2 of the nail polishes from this collection.
Let’s start off with the Constellation Gel Eye Liners. As you may remember, I used Black Opal (as eyeshadow) in my Halloween costume. In the pictures you will see below, I used Black Opal on my top eyelid.
L-R: Black Opal, Emerald, Lapis
The lipsticks are matte, just the way I like them, and they were all gorgeous, and thankfully flattering for my skintone, so if you are a medium skintone and you are shying away from these 3 shades, don’t. They are quite gorgeous on medium skintone!
Enchanted Amethyst is a gorgeous lavender.
Next, we will take a look at Topaz, a soft warm nude.
Ruby was very hard-to-find, and I was really lucky to be gifted this shade on my birthday!! I really felt the love with this shade, too – it’s just glorious!!
Enchanted Topaz, Enchanted Amethyst
As you see above in all the pictures, I included Enchanted Garnet (on my nails) in all the pictures! It’s just so lit-from-within and gorgeous! I wore it for a long time before I decided to remove it. Just perfection!!
Overall, this collection was fantastic! The Constellation Gel Eye Liners are so super gorgeous to look at (thanks to the glitter overlay; yes, that glitter is not throughout, which is good news for me because glitter actually irritates my contact lenses). I also love the brushes that came with each gel liner. They applied the liner beautifully. I was, however, a little disappointed by the fact that they transferred and I could see it settling/smearing into my crease line. When I created a smoky eye look with it, it did also crease and shift on my eye through the night. I will be trying to set it with Milani Bella Eyes next time to see if it keeps it from transferring/smearing/shifting. The lipsticks were creamy and matte, and they were absolutely gorgeous! I can see these suiting all sorts of skintones, and I was really happy that it looked good on my medium skintone because I have a hard time finding a nude lipstick that will suit me. They were a little drying, but my lips had just gone through a cold when I swatched them. I have worn them since and they were a little drying, but nothing to complain too much about. I wish and hope they become permanent, but if not, there are a few more matte shades coming out in 2015 from Milani that I am quite looking forward to. The nail lacquer is stunning and I used 3 coats for it to look this deliciously rich. I love that in the sunlight, the true colors did shine through. I kind of wish I had grabbed the other 2 lacquers because I quite enjoy shades like this.
Did you get anything from this collection? This is a LIMITED EDITION collection, but I have seen them at my local Walgreens and CVS, so maybe check around to see if you can find them if you’re interested in these shades!!
