Milani Shadow Eyez Mini Review


Today I have a mini review on a new product from Milani that is exclusive to CVS: Milani Shadow Eyez Eyeshadow Pencil.  I've picked up 3 out of the 6 core colors so far.  I didn't do swatches, so check out A Brilliant Brunette's swatches of ALL 6.  These are comparable to Urban Decay's 24/7 Shadow Pencils for a fraction of the price.

Milani Shadow Eyez Eyeshadow Pencil:

I have them in 02 Brown Deluxe, 03 Champagne Toast and 06 Royal Purple.

Overall Grade:  A

Brown Deluxe is my favorite for when I want a nice, quick bronze-brown lid color with little fuss.

Champagne Toast is nice for when I just want to do a quick nude lid with dark winged liner.

Royal Purple is good, however on me it looks like almost a red-based purple so I have to work with it to get it to look more flattering, otherwise it really brings out my under-eye circles.  This shade individually gets a grade of B- because it looks red-purple on me.

I paid $6.37 each for these.  If CVS puts Milani on sale again, I might pick up the white one.  I'm not sure about the blue and green ones because the colors are so vivid and I tend to shy away from that.  Maybe I should branch out a little; I do have a couple of ideas to try if I do pick them up.  Also, if Milani ever comes up with more in limited edition shades, I would definitely consider getting them (depending on the color).
