My apologies for the bad lighting! >.<
Hi everyone! I just wanted to share a quick FOTD worn for sushi night with friends (we did the all you can eat deal and proceeded to eat fifty ponds of sushi…did we have stomachaches? Yes. Was it worth it? Damn straight!). Featured products are the Milani Bella Eyes eyeshadow in Bella Copper and Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Standout which are new to me.

Love love love the lippie and eyeshadow! Bella Copper is such a pretty sparkly copper-y color. I can’t say I own anything similar to it. It’s my first eyeshadow from this line, and I’m definitely impressed! It has good pigmentation, but I layered it to get its full intensity. It’s best applied with your finger to control fallout and get the most pigmentation. I haven’t tried it wet but I’m sure it would produce a nice foiled effect.
Standout is a very nice red, kind of a nice neutral/cooler toned red that would probably look great on any skin tone. It fellt very velvety on the lips when applied and wore well without feeling drying. The crayon applicator makes it really easy to apply. It did eventually fade in the middle after eating and left me with the dreaded ring around the lips (rather upset that my friends didn’t inform me about it haha!) I own a few other shades of the Revlon matte balms and they are all quite nice – the shade Sultry is a favorite of mine.
After swatching Bella Copper it made me think of Trick from the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette but when swatched next to each other you can see they are quite different.

Bella copper is more orange toned while Trick is more pinky-toned. Bella Copper reminds me of the color of a new penny, while Trick looks more like a rose gold color. Both are sparkly and have a little fallout when applied.
Overall, I was impressed by the Bella Eyes line by Milani. I really liked the copper shade, I think its quite unique and a steal at less than $5. None of the other colors really caught my eye at the time but maybe I will buy more down the line.
Hope you enjoyed! Do you have any of the Milani Bella Eyes eyeshadows? What shades are your favorites?
