Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadows, Swatch, and Review - Bella Navy, Bella Charcoal, Bella Rouge

Hello! I'm back...I caught the cold few days ago. That was a shocker. I can't remember the last time I got sick. I have this crazy itch in my throat that still continues to bother me. I coughed so hard this morning, I got bloodshot eyes. Kids are back to school and today the weather really felt like fall. Wow! Summer went fast.

I came across these new Milani eyeshadows at CVS a few weeks ago and picked out a couple of these to try out.

  • Cute, round, with gold detail packaging. The eyeshadow is not flat but has a raised molding. 
  • .05 oz or 1.4 g

  • Bella Charcoal is a cool tone shimmery taupey grey
  • Bella Navy is a shimmery medium dark navy
  • Bella Rouge is a bright shimmery pinkish red
  • Bella Charcoal and Bella Navy have a better pigmentation than Bella Rouge. 
  • the texture is nice, soft, and has a butter smooth feel to it. The pigmentation is good but could be better, imo. 
  • They are easy to apply and blend.
  • You definitely need a good primer in order for these to pop and last. The color intensity definitely looks better when applied with fingers. Even so, I feel that by the 5th hour, they start to fade.

Final Thought

Nice packaging. Good pigmentation, soft, and blendable color. I just wish the pigmentation was a little stronger and that the longevity was a little longer too. Other than that, it's a fairly good eyeshadow.

Rating: 8.5/10

Price: $3.99
Availability: CVS, Walgreens

Tried them yet? Tell me what you think of them?


  1. Hmmm...pretty, but I'm not dying for a new eyeshadow, so I probably won't run out and buy them. The application sounds good but I'd like better intensity.

    1. Yes perhaps you'd find some interest in them when they go on sale.

  2. Can you combine it with an appropriate lipstick?

    1. I'll try. Sometimes, it's quicker to just do an eye look rather than a full face look when I'm reviewing eyeshadows.
