My oh my I just love it when the drugstore brands come out with
cheap less expensive alternatives of coveted items from high end brands. Recently Make Up Forever released their Aqua Shadow, a long wearing, smudge proof eyeshadow pencil that retails at $20 a pop. Although I tend to splurge here and there mostly with my pro discounts, I believe in beauty on a budget. If I can find a cheaper version that works just as good I am all for it. That is why I am gaga for Milani’s new Shadow Eyez 12hr Wear Eyeshadow Pencils!
Shadow Eyez 12hr Wear Eyeshadow Pencils are simply dabomb.com. EXTREMELY pigmented and blendable, smooth & creamy and very long lasting. These babies don’t budge. Once they set they aren’t going anywhere without an oil based makeup remover. Definitely water resistant, no smudging or budging so don’t even think about it. No creasing (although I always use a primer) and can be worn alone, used as a base for powder eyeshadow or used as eyeliner. Multitasker. Can be applied directly to the lid and blended with fingers or a brush, but you must move fast.
Shadow Eyez comes in six super rich shades Winter White, Champagne Toast, Brown Deluxe, Green Safari, Royal Purple & Aquatic Style. Metallic neutrals and jewel tones, such a nice mix. Now all we need are some matte shades (a-hem Milani lol.)
Winter White metallic white
Champagne Toast champagne pink
Brown Deluxe bronze with chocolate brown undertones
Green Safari emerald green
Royal Purple blue toned purple
Aquatic Style metallic aqua
Milani Shadow Eyes retail for $5.99 a pop and are available exclusively at CVS… for now. Keep a look out for these babies at your local drugstores that carry Milani as you are going to want to snatch these up! Oh, and I forgot to mention that they are paraben free.
Omg wow these look awesome!! Champagne Toast looks a LOT like UD Sin, and I really wanna try Aquatic Style, it’s perfect for spring & summer!! I’m excited, a trip to CVS is definitely in order! 🙂
Champagne Toast would look great with UD Sin. I love Aquatic Style, think I’m going to rock it today 🙂
Oh my!! I just found your blog through bloggers, and I find you simply stunning!
Also, I wish Milani products were available here. I can’t wait for my visit to the States so that I can stock up!
Thank you Anna. Have you checked Cherry Culture? I believe they ship internationally
these look nice!
Ohhh…I want to try these!
Those swatches are amazing. I have to go on the hunt for them.
Nice! Been meaning to try these.
lol! I 100% agree with you! if we can get the less expensive one, why not? dress like a model, shop like an accountant.. hehehe
Lol love the analogy!
After this amazing post, the only problem will be how many will I buy. Great swatches 🙂
Thank you. At those prices you can just buy them all. I’m such an enabler! 🙂
Green Safari! Oh WOW! These look great!
i def want the 3 in the last image, so bright and pretty
I love all Milani Products they a worth more than what u pay.
They definitely are!
I have the Champagne & love it! And I agree, I would definitely love a matte version, of Aquatic Syle especially. I’ve been going nuts looking for a turquoise pencil without a shimmery or metallic finish.
i luv it
