Milani Everyday Eyes Powder Eyeshadow Collection

Holiday time is upon us. That means it's time for looking your very best for all those parties and get togethers. You don't have to spend a lot of money to create a new holiday look. This nice little plum eye shadow palette from Milani caught my eye at my local CVS for $9.99. Luckily for me, it was on sale 40% off!

I couldn't pass it up. The colors look great in the palette but you never know how they are going to go on.
 Here they are on my medium beige skin.

From the top- 1: base, 2: contour, 3: lid, 4: crease, 5: specialty, 6: liner. There is a handy little application guide on the palette that you can follow if you want to. 
Milani Everyday Eyes Powder Eyeshadow Collection Plum Basics application guide
I always start my eye shadow application by priming my eyelids with Urban Decay Primer Potion. It's my secret for making any brand of eyeshadow wear well and look bolder and clearer in color.

The Review:

The shadows go on a little sheer but most of them will build up for a more intense color. I was expecting the crease color to look a little bolder on than it did, though. The shimmery lid color and specialty glitter color stay sheer. The shadows go on smooth and are very powdery so expect some fallout onto the under eye area during application. Be sure to tap your brush off before you apply the shadow or try using a sponge applicator for less fall out. The little brush that comes in the palette is just okay. I prefer using my favorite shadow brush or a sponge applicator. The shadow worn well throughout the day with very little fading and no creasing. The shadow did not irritate my eyes at all. It's a good product for the price. Here's how it looks on my eyes. (I didn't follow the application guide)

Glitter Tip!
I love a glittery shadow but pretty much with any brand, Milani included, glitter ends up falling onto the face. Use a piece of tape wrapped around your finger to lift the unwanted glitter off of your skin.

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

Dermatofibromas

This post is all about dermatofibromas and some remedies to help make them look better and ways hide them. It includes my Amazon Affiliate Links to help you find the products I talk about. Q. I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j

Why does my lipstick change color on my lips?

So, you found a gorgeous shade of peachy nude lipstick.... right on trend. It looks amazing in the lipstick tube but when you put it on, it turns orange within 15 minutes!  It happens to me all the time. Pigments in the lipstick react with the chemistry of the skin and change color. This color shift is due to the pH of the skin. Our skin has an acidic pH of 4.5 to 5.5. It varies slightly from person to person which is why lipstick changes on some people and not others.  The oil, sweat and bacteria on our skin create a protective layer called the acid mantle with its pH of 4.5 to 5.5. The acid mantle can change due to how we treat our skin.  The skin pH can change due to the environment.  The sun, as well as pollution, can affect skin's pH.  What we eat can affect the pH of our skin.  Sweating and cosmetic products can also change pH.  The skin will always try to get back to 4.5-5.5 no matter how we abuse it.  Use gentle pH balanced skin care products, eat a healthy diet w
