Milani Bedazzled Fall 2014 Collection Swatches and Mini Review

(**Press Samples**)
Haaay! Before I get into the makeup babble; I want to say THANKS! Thanks to everyone for the lovely comment on my post yesterday. You guys are too kind, and your words mean a lot to me.

And now, let's chat about the Milani Bedazzled Collection for Fall 2014. This was a limited release by Milani which consists of jewel-toned themed eye, lip and nail products. The official release was back in October, so I feel like a tool for posting these now... but.... PRETTY MAKEUP PICTURES YAY!

Milani Constellation Gel Liners 
Black Opal- super shimmery graphite gel liner.
Enchanted Lapis- rich, shimmering navy blue gel liner
Enchanted Emerald- deep forest green shimmering gel liner.

These suckers look beautiful in the pan. Once applied they are not quite as shimmery as they are in the pan. I've not had many chances to actually wear these. I will say I was a bit disappointed when my arm swatches would not "set". I was able to smudge these up pretty good after a good while of waiting to see if they would "dry".  So... I'm not sure how to feel about these. They are beautiful to look at... But I'm not sure how well they will work in their actual application.

Milani Lip Art Lipsticks
This release also included Three new matte lippie colors.
Enchanted Ruby- a most magnificent shade of deep, matte ruby red.
Enchanted Topaz- a wonderful balanced neutral matte shade. In my photo it comes off more peachy, IRL it was much more beige and neutral.

These feel amazing on the lips, even though they are mattes. Enchanted Ruby has quickly become my go-to color this Fall season.

Milani Color Statement Nail Polish in Enchanted Garnet- How stoked am I to have a beautiful nail color to match my birth stone?! This shade is a deep plummy-maroon with a rich micro shimmer which catches the light beautifully. This shade feels so luxurious, and looks amazing on every skin tone! Shown are two easy coats. 

I do sooo love the theme behind these. I've always been a sucker for rich, jewel-toned cosmetics. Were you able to snag any goodies from this release?


  1. Oh, those gel liners! Can you please include them in a FOTD or any other make up post to see them when you wear it? Thanks a lot! :)

    Those sparkly gel liners are perfect for this time of year!

  3. those lipsticks look very luxe. Curious about the packaging- must check them out on my next trip to CVS. Gorgeous nail swatch- I love that color on you, perfect winter vamp shade.

  4. PS I am with you on the birthstone thing. I love anything named Topaz. I am always seeking them out. If you want a nail polish with a matching name, Estee lauder has a beauty called Enchanted Garnet- classic red jelly-creme hybrid. glossy and old hollywood looking, one of my favorite reds of all time. Sometimes they come in a sample sized GWP, so there are plenty floating around on sites like ebay for good prices.

  5. I still think I would buy those damn eyeliners just because they are so stinking pretty!!

  6. The only item I purchased from this collection was Enchanted Amethyst which is supposedly dupe for MAC's Riri Boy. The display was practically empty but I'm so glad I got my hands on that lipstick. It was a fav of mine this past fall.

  7. An organic lip balm can help nourish your lips
    and protect them from the elements. Try River Veda’s rich and softening organic
    lip balm at

  8. I actually grabbed Enchanted Garnet when we were on holiday in New York! Also the Enchanted Emerald gelliner but I haven't used it yet..
