Milani Pure Love Collection Swatches and Review

Before I even get going on my post – I want to give a HUGE apology for the quality of the photos you are about to view.  The amazing camera that is usually used for my blog is currently in the shop :(  I should have it back in the next week or so, but the Milani Pure Love Collection is Limited Edition for the month of April, so I couldn’t delay it AT ALL!  Would hate to let these lovelies go to waste.  So we improvised with a lower quality camera so I could get this out.  

Onto the post!

This April Milani has released a Limited Edition set of 3 nail lacquers in Gray Tux, Bridesmaid and Wedding Dress as well as a True Romance eyeshadow trio to match!  It is their Pure Love Collection, which can be found at select Walgreens for the month of April!

We’ll start with the Milani Nail Lacquer swatches!

Milani Wedding Dress is a gorgeous silvery white polish with a metallic like finish.  This polish glows!  Application was a little rough on Wedding Dress, but only during the first coat.  Dry time took almost 7 minutes per coat as well, but I find that to be fairly common with metallic like polishes.  2 coats were used for this photo!

Milani Bridesmaid was hands down my favorite of the 3 Pure Love nail lacquers.  Bridesmaid is a champagne polish with a foil finish and little pops of copper in it.  Stunning!  It shimmers like CRAZY outdoors.  It isn’t just a good wedding color, its an amazing summer color!  Formula wise, Bridesmaid was easy to work with, 2 coats finished it off !  Dry time was about 7 minutes (just like Wedding Dress!)

Last up is Milani’s Gray Tux!  Gray Tux is a slightly sheer black jelly polish infused with small silver glitter as well as medium silver hex glitter!  The amount of glitter in this one is phenomenal.  I didn’t have to fish around the bottle for it either!  Plenty came out with each brush stroke.  My nails do have the slightly bumping glitter feeling (bumpy… not gritty!) which was quickly evened out by using Milani Top Coat!   I only used 2 coats for this gorgeous glitter infused mani.

The Milani True Romance Eyeshadow Trio is just as amazing as the nail lacquers!  First I’ll show you the trio:

Sorry for the dustiness of it, I swatched it before I thought to take a photo of the quad.  Silly me!

The quality of these shadows are wonderful.  They apply smooth and evenly and blend surprisingly well.  No chalkiness whatsoever!  Because of my camera issue, I couldn’t get any decent eye shots.  Instead I did arm swatches, which I really try not to do without eye shots but this couldn’t be avoided :(

These swatches are only 1 swipe each.  They also apply beautifully wet if you prefer a more dramatic effect!  These build easily too for more impact.

As I stated earlier, Milani’s Pure Love Collection is available for a limited time at select Walgreen’s for the month of April only!  So if you want them, you need to hurry up and get them!

Even though these gorgeous colors are only available at select Walgreens, you can still check out Milani’s fabulous color selection of Nail Lacquers as well as Cosmetics on their website
