Key Ingredients:

  • Hyaluronic Acid: Deeply hydrates skin
  • Aloe Vera: Hydrates & soothes
  • Pink Grapefruit: Brightens
  • Goji Berry: Powerful antioxidant
  • Juniper: Evens skin tone

As mentioned above in the key ingredients, this is a hydrating hyaluronic, gradual self-tan serum. I’ve tried many self tanners on my face, I’m very impressed with Tanologist and you can’t beat the price.

How I use it: I put a few drops on my face and neck (every other day) before applying my makeup. This lightweight serum provides a nice natural glow while hydrating skin. It also works great as a makeup primer. **MAKE SURE TO WASH YOUR HANDS AFTER!

If you want to give your skin a boost, I highly recommend this! 🤩

Let’s look at some pictures below:

I am really happy with this product. A little sunless summer glow (even in fall/winter!) goes a long way!

The price is this is great as I said above, and since I use it every other day this bottle will last a long time.

Let’s talk milani!

LET’S TALK MILANI!! Have you heard of this brand before?

Dawn here.

I stumbled across this brand at Ulta. It’s no secret Eva & I love it there AND we love trying new products! 🙃

I decided to buy the undereye tint and the multistick. YOU CANNOT BEAT THE PRICE!! So why not?!

So what on earth am I talking about? Look below.

Milani super charged undereye tint - perfect for concealing those dark circles at a budget price

  • Nourishing, lightweight texture creates a smooth canvas for concealer application or when worn alone
  • Available in tinted shades
  • Vegan
  • Made in the U.S.A.
  • Cruelty-Free

  • Ultra-creamy, nourishing cheek + lip formula
  • Easy-to-apply gel stick format glides onto cheeks and lips, melting into skin
  • Leaves a buildable wash of color for the perfect luminous finish
  • Made in U.S.A.
  • Cruelty-Free
Milani two in one multi stick! bang for your buck!

Now for my thoughts and review! LET’S TALK MILANI!

I will keep this quick & to the point! 🤩

I like both the undereye tint and multistick equally. They both apply nicely.

The undereye tint is great along without concealer over it. I don’t like to wear heavy makeup under my eyes because it just makes me look so much older – I like a more natural look.

milani under eye tint... works well and you can't beat the price.

The multistick bronzer I also use alone on my cheeks (if I am pressed for time), but if I have more time it is great for contouring! ALSO – it can be used as a lip color but I will not use it for that; it’s way too dark for me!

multi use sticks!! milani is a great price point.

Both are under $10!!


AFTER in two different outfits!

I really like to try products a few times before I give a review.

SO.. a super simple review today… but you get the point! I love when a less expensive makeup product really works. I had never heard of Milani before, and I’m glad I stumbled upon it. It works well on my more mature skin, so I can only imagine how much Eva will love it, too.

Speaking of.. did you see her post last week on a much less expensive lash primer that works?!

If you use this brand, what is your favorite product?!



Dawn here!

So.. there really is two sides of me. And my daily look is very different from Eva’s.

This is really because my lifestyle for 30+ years was to throw on work out clothes, run my house cleaning business, and hair in ponytail. I would sweat so much during the day it just wasn’t worth it. My mature skin also can’t handle a lot of heavy makeup everyday. Eva went to an office everyday so she got really accustomed to a different lifestyle.

Daily – I wear makeup but I keep it very simple. 90% of the time my hair is in a ponytail. I NEVER leave home without mascara.

Going out – (even though we aren’t doing much of this these days) I have a WHOLE DIFFERENT regimen. I wear eyeshadow, eyeliner, bright lipstick, colored foundation. I like a lot of sparkles and shimmers. LOL.

BUT for today’s makeup bag, I’m showing you my DAILY LOOK!

(Also.. Eva and I are total opposite, I ALWAYS do my hair first then makeup)

First things first, PRIMER. Eva got me into this one and I LOVE IT. Please note I really do use a lot of mascaras… lol. I focus a lot on eyes (but no eyeliner in this everyday look).
