Milani Haul & Swatches

Milani is my favorite drugstore brand of makeup. CVS had their products at buy 1 get 1 50% off this week, so I couldn't resist picking up a few things! I got the Touch of Brown eyeshadow quad, Sunset City sunset duo, Enchantment nail polish, and Fairy Tale nail polish.

I thought the blush bronzer duo looked similar to Nars Laguna/Orgasm duo, so I took some comparison swatches. I also compared them to Milani's old luminous blush, which is often said to be an Orgasm dupe. The Sunset City blush is more golden than the Orgasm blush. But as you can see in the photos, they're still pretty similar.

The polishes are from a limited edition collection called, "Black Magic." It includes nail polishes that are all dark but have different colored glitters. I'm not a big fan of plain black nail polish, so I love the hint of glittery color in these. I'm thinking of picking up the other colors sometime!

I also put a new layout on my blog since I felt like the default ones weren't spacious enough. I like it, what do you guys think? I used to make layouts for xanga, myspace, etc but I was too lazy to make one for blogger. So, I found this lovely layout at
