Milani Wild Violets Quad

Happy Easter Makeup Lovers!

Because it is Easter Sunday, I did a FOTD using purples. When I think of Easter colors I think of pastels, pinks, purples, yellows, etc. I also stuck with a drugstore brand of makeup.

I purchased this Milani quad When CVS was having it's major 75% off sale (original price is $4.99) and have never used it. I decided to give it a go! This quad features 4 varying shades of purple - all of the colors have pretty average pigmentation with the lightest color being the softest/chalkiest. I've definitely seen much better pigmentation among drugstore makeup. I used all four colors in this look.

The colors are definitely more vivid in person, but nothing to write home about. I think that these shadows could be worn to work - what do you think? Am I pushing it?
