Is it just me, or are the drugstore makeup brands stepping up their game? I picked up a few things at the store last week, and the Milani Everyday Eyes “Earthy Elements” palette was one of them. It was love at first sight. Terracotta eyeshadow? Yes please! It reminds me of the Georgia Red Clay I encounter on a daily basis. I just love the unique colors in this palette!

This palette has orangey-reddish hues, which is different from your typical “everyday eyes” palettes which usually consist of browns and neutrals. They have a variety of palettes in their Everyday Eyes collection ranging from your typical neutrals all the way to vivid pop art colors. Each palette is different from the next, so whatever mood you’re in, they have a palette for it!

The palette contains a mix of matte colors and colors with a slight sheen. The shadows are also very pigmented, especially the main orange color. I get about the same amount of pigmentation using a brush as I do my finger, which is pretty impressive. They blend easily and all of the colors mesh well together.

I have been a fan of Milani lipsticks for awhile now, and I am glad I decided to give their eyeshadows a try! Overall, I’m really impressed with this palette and can see myself picking up some of the others in the future. What are your favorite drugstore eyeshadows?
