Spotted, Hauled & Swatched - Milani Naturally Chic Shadow Eyez Collection

**all items purchased by me

I decided to share a little makeup haul (it's actually 2 trips) today, and it's featuring the new limited edition, Walgreens exclusive Milani Naturally Chic Shadow Eyez collection.  I bought these a couple weeks ago - they came out either in April or May.  I bought these in 2 parts - 4 in one day, 1 a few days later (after seeing swatches of it)...but there is one I did not get.  I didn't get the black since I do have a black from L.A. Colors...that I still need to test.  Depending on how I feel about the L.A. Colors one, I may or may not go back to Walgreens and try to get the black shade.  I really need to get on that.  Anyway, let's see the new Shadow Eyez!

~~EDIT:  I ended up purchasing the black shade a week or so later.  It's in this haul (but no swatch).
You know I can't resist a display picture.  

Let's see the first 4 I purchased:
08 Espresso Line, 09 Cafe Au Lait, 10 Almond Cream, 11 Sand Dunes
~Sand Dunes is a foil/shimmer; the rest are matte

Close-ups in the package:

And the other one I purchased a few days later from a different Walgreens:
12 Golden Brown
~is a foil/shimmer

And now for their swatches.  All but Sand Dunes have 1 swipe - Sand Dunes is 2 swipes:
Espresso Line, Cafe Au Lait, Almond Cream, Sand Dunes, Golden Bronze

I have reviewed part of the core line before, so click here if you'd like to see my thoughts on them.  The only thing that's changed since that post was how many of the core shades I have - I have all but the white.  But to sum up my prior post, I love these - they work wonderfully as eyeshadow bases (I do have a bit of creasing if I wear them alone...not nearly as bad as the Maybelline Color Tattoos) and I'm also in love with the teal/turquoise one as a pop of color on the lower lash line.  I wish there was more in the core line, but I'm thrilled to have been able to get my hands on these limited edition shades.  

During these 2 Walgreens trips, I also picked up these 2 things on clearance (1 from each store):
Sally Hansen Gem Crush in 06 Razzle Dazzler (this already showed up in a Sunday Stash Sharing)
CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless 230 Corrector - this is in my backup container

Did you get anything from the Naturally Chic collection?  Do you like Milani's Shadow Eyez line?  Do you have a preference for these or Maybelline's Color Tattoos?
