Milani Limited Edition Fantastical Plumage Collection Swatches and Review

by Lisa Heath

Press Sample

Milani is releasing 2 Limited Edition Collections in August that will be available at select CVS and Meijer stores!  Tonight I am showing you one of those collections (the other will be up tomorrow!).

The Fantastical Plumage Collection is a gorgeous assortment of vivid colors and a black and white glitter top coat!

For all of the cremes I used Carnival (the glitter top coat) on my ring finger as an accent nail.

Take a look!



Peacock is a beautiful dusty light blue creme.  I used 2 coats for this photo and a glossy top coat.

Blue Jay:


Blue Jay is a favorite of mine!  Blue Jay is a gorgeous cobalt blue with a tinge of purple.  This was ALMOST a 1 coater!  Beautiful!

Purple Martin:


Not really sure what the name means?  Purple Martian is a beautiful medium lilac.  I used 2 coats for this photo.



Canary is a vibrant yellow!  Another 2 coater!  Very wearable even for paler tones like me.

Scarlet Ibis:


Scarlet Ibis is a vibrant reddish orange.  In person,  you can see the slightest hint of shimmer, but it seems to disappear once dry.  Again, just 2 coats!



Carnival is the glitter top coat for the collection!  Carnival has matte small black hex glitter and bar glitter and medium matte white hex glitter in a clear base.  I had to use the dabbing method to get the hex glitters on.  The bar glitters applied with no problem though!  The clear base is a little thick, but workable.  I used 1 coat over Scarlet Ibis in this photo!

All of the cremes in this collection had absolutely flawless application!  The glitter was pretty good as well, but it did require the dabbing method for the hexes, so be prepared for that.  I think it’s a fun summertime collection with some incredibly vibrant shades.

My top picks?  Blue Jay, Scarlet Ibis and Peacock!

You will be able to find these at select CVS and Meijer stores during the month of August.

Retail Price – $5.99

As I stated at the beginning, this IS a Limited Edition Collection for the month of August, so grab them while you can!

Tomorrows post will be on the second Limited Edition Collection, Retro Glam!
