Wow, Milani has come out with some amazing products this year. Can’t believe I slept on the brand for so long, but now I am hooked.I have some more new goodies from Milani for 2012 to show you, actually a whole lot more. I’ve been trying to space the products out so that I won’t overload you guys, but I need to get through everything so please bare with me. First up are the powder eyeshadows…
The powder eyeshadows are silk-like in texture, smooth like butter and easily blendable. They are extremely pigmented and boasts to be crease proof. With a good primer I bet these babies will not go anywhere as when testing on my arm they gradually faded over the day but left a stain. The powder eyeshadows come in 12 shades in both matte and pearl finishes, and can be used as a shadow or eyeliner.
White Lie, French Vanilla, Brown Stone, Pitch Black
White Lie (matte) matte white
French Vanilla (matte) matte beige (Similar to Urban Decay Foxy)
Brown Stone (matte) matte coffee brown (MAC Espresso Dupe)
Pitch Black (matte) matte black (MAC Carbon Dupe)
Pearl, Caramel Brown, Gold Dust, Tickled Pink
Pearl (pearl) champagne pearl (Urban Decay Virgin Dupe)
Caramel Brown (pearl) bronzed brown
Gold Dust (pearl) orange based gold
Tickled Pink (pearl) golden pink
Just Perfect, Purple Shock, Olympian Blue, Shocking Pink
Just Perfect (pearl) green toned teal (MAC Teal Pigment Dupe)
Shocking Purple (pearl) lavender with slight blue sheen (MAC Stars n’ Rockets Dupe)
Olympian Blue (matte) matte electric blue (similar to MAC Electric Eel)
Shocking Pink (matte) matte neon pink
As you can see there are some dupes of MAC and Urban Decay eyeshadows in the bunch. All of the shades are shockingly pigmented and smooth with the exception of White Lie which is a little chalky but still extremely pigmented for a white eyeshadow. The Milani Powder Eyeshadows retail at $4.49 each for .11oz, which is larger than MUFE single eyeshadows. That’s a steal since you get a whole lot of product! Exclusively available at select CVS stores.
Now you probably remember hearing about the infamous Milani Limited Edition Paint Eyeshadow Palette from last Spring. I was so upset that I missed out and couldn’t get my hands on it. I was super excited when I heard that Milani brought it back for good this time along with two new palettes, the Impressionist Powder Eyeshadow Palette and the Abstract Powder Eyeshadow Palette (not shown.)
Paint Eyeshadow Palette
The Paint Eyeshadow palette consists of seven heavily pigmented matte neon shades. The colors are what I wanted the Sleek Makeup Acid Palette to be. Keep in mind that these were swatched heavily. To achieve this pigmentation without layering it is best to use a cream colored base such as NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Milk. The colors will really pop then. The shadows are silky and buttery smooth. Perfect for Summer!
Impressionist Eyeshadow Palette
The Impressionist Palette has seven matte pastel shades which are perfect for Spring, and also have extremely good pigmentation. The white and yellow are on the chalky side and not as pigmented as the rest. As with the Paint Palette you will need to use a cream color base for maximum pigmentation. Don’t forget to prime first though!
The Powder Eyeshadow Palettes retail for $8.49 each and are available at select Walmart stores. You can find the Paint Palette here at Cherry Culture. Also keep a look out at your local drugstores that carry Milani as these products may pop up. I know Target had the Paint palette last time and carries Milani.
