Milani, Jordana & American Eyedol swatches

Hello lovelies!
I recently purchased a whole lot of makeup from BeautyJoint.com. The brands included:

  • Milani
  • Jordana
  • American Eyedol
I uploaded a haul video on my YouTube channel, and this is the accompanying blog post with swatches!
So let's get into it :)

Powder Eye Shadow: $1.99
Powder Blush: $2.99 

The powder eyeshadows are fanastic! SO cheap and so highly pigmented. Some are a lot creamier than others, for example the matte shadows are a lot smoother than the glittery ones (that's to be expected though). The shadow 'STORM' (sparkly black) is VERY dark but very very grainy.. almost to the point where if you tap it upside down little chunks of eyeshadow will fall out. 
My only dislike about this brand is the packaging. They are SO hard to open. I cut my finger trying to open the blush (excuse tacky nail polish!)..

Color Effects Powder Eyeshadow Single: $1.75
Loose Eye Shadow: $1.75
Powder Blush: $1.99

09 Brownie / 10 Bronze Medal / 12 Go 4 Gold

Another success! Even cheaper than Milani and just as good quality. All of the shadows and blushes were super smooth and the loose eye shadows were super pigmented and glided on effortlessly. These ones were especially sparkly in the sun but I couldn't capture it very well with my camera. I much prefer the packaging of these to the Milani ones as well. 

American Eyedol
KLEANCOLOR Wet/Dry Baked Eyeshadow: $1.75

These are also great eyeshadows.  Not creamy at all (which I don't like), but that's to be expected from a baked eyeshadow. The colour is noticeably more pigmented when it is applied wet than when it's applied dry, but it's still got a great colour pay-off when it's applied dry. They're very sparkly and glittery which also appeals to me. The packaging is very cheap looking but that's to be expected from an eyeshadow that costs $1.75! 

I hope you guys enjoyed my first proper blog post! Let me know via Twitter / my YouTube channel what you thought of it :)

  2. Loved it!
    I went and had a look at the jordana website and tried to order.
    I was really disappointed when I realised that there was an australian site and a US site, and the price difference between the same products was at least $4 :(
    I gave up and tried to order some on the Australian Site for more than double the price than I would have through the US site, but it kept forgetting what was in my cart!! :(
