As with most moments of discoveries, my story begins with a tragedy. What started out as me sharing a makeup hack on my Instagram Stories, quickly turned into my favorite palette crumbling in my very hands. My longtime buddy, used at my wedding and beyond, pretty much disintegrated while I was filming for you glorious readers! When I looked online to order another one, I noticed that Lorac no longer made my old palette, and that’s what led me to purchase the under $15 makeup palette that I’ve been using.
I’m a pretty savvy online shopper, so I did find the old palette at a few retailers, but I decided to take this time to scour the market for a new palette. The reality was that I initially loved the first palette mostly because my sister-in-law gave me a compliment one time and it stuck. After much research, I narrowed it down to two potential palettes. One for $75, and one for $15. Can you guess which one I picked? You guessed it! The $15 Milani All Inclusive Eye, Cheek & Face Palette is a total dream for gals who want a pretty palette at an even prettier price.
Here are the Specs
The Eye, Cheek & Face Palette is a seven-shade eyeshadow, blusher, highlighter, and bronzer palette. They are powder formulas and are rich in pigment. Each palette includes two blush shades, three eyeshadows, a bronzer, and a highlighter.
There were a lot of pretty makeup palettes online, some I’ve even been tempted to buy over the years. I don’t know why, but I’ve always dreamed of the perfect palette. I even made my own palette in college by scooping out the little metal pans and sticking them to a magnetic board called a Z Palette (does anyone remember those?) I’ve added a video from 2015 to show you how long I’ve been stuck on this obsession! Enjoy this little laugh from 2015 and give this Milani palette a shot!
