Milani Gel Powder Eyeshadow | Swatches

 I was finally able to go to CVS to check out the new Milani Gel Powder eyeshadows. They retail for $4.59. At CVS there is a larger selection of shades, whereas at Walgreens, there are fewer shades to choose from.

I bought three shades: Bella Ivory, Bella Champagne, and Bella Taupe. I wanted something neutral that would be wearable for everyday.

In terms of the formula, I wouldn't necessarily call it a "gel". When I think of gel, I imagine a gel liner. That is NOT what this feels like. The consistency is more creamy, but still on the powder side. I noticed that the shadows applied better with my fingers then with brushes (see the video down below!).

Bella Ivory
Bella Ivory is cream ivory shade that has a satin matte finish. Although it leans more to the matte side, it has a satiny finish that gives the shadow a nice sheen. This is great to use as a highlight underneath your eyebrows and in the inner corner of your eye.

Bella Champagne
Bella Champagne is a gorgeous rosy champagne color that has a shimmer finish. This is the perfect shade to apply to your eyelids.

Bella Taupe
 Bella Taupe is a greyish brown and has a satin matte finish. On the swatch, it appears more brown than it really is, but on the eyes it does show a bit of grey taupey-ness. This shade is perfect for the crease or the outer v section.
