~Weekly Product Highlight~ Milani Shadow Eyez 12Hr Wear Eyeshadow Pencil~
In my effort to not buy new makeup items, I have been “shopping” from my own collection of makeup. I have rediscovered so many great products that I had completely forgotten that I love. One of the rediscovered items is the Milani Shadow Eyez 12Hr Wear Eyeshadow Pencil in 11 SAND DUNES Shimmering Taupe. I forgot how much I love this product!
The pigmentation is amazing, it dries quickly and does not wear off at all during the day. I have a heavy fold to my lids, so sometimes my lid shade ends up in my crease, so annoying! (all you heavy fold and hooded eye girls, you know what I mean right?!) This shimmer doesn’t transfer off my lid at all.
After I applied the swatch for the above picture, I completely forgot about it and didn’t try to remove it. When I woke up the next morning I saw it on my arm and couldn’t believe that it had lasted so long. It was definitely on my arm for about 18 hours and hadn’t smudged or worn off at all.
It comes in 10 different shades ranging from neutral tan/beige to bright teals and greens. I also had the colors 08 ESPRESSO LINE Matte Espresso Brown and 06 ROYAL PURPLE Blue-Purple Sheen. While they were both super pigmented and lasted all day, I found them hard to blend and couldn’t get either color to work well for me.
What does the Milani Website have to say about it…
This water-resistant and crease-proof eyeshadow pencil can be worn multiple ways—as a shadow, liner and highlighter. Sharpened to a fine point, it defines. Softly smudged, it adds color. Swept under the brow bone in one of the paler hues, it catches the light. It’s perfect for creating any eye-catching look on the go.
Apply the pencil directly to the lid, then blend. After use, always replace the cap so the tip does not dry out. Sharpen with Duo Sharpener.”
What about you? Have you tried any of the Milani Shadow Eyez 12Hr Wear Eyeshadow Pencil? What do you think? Have you used other chubby pencil long wearing eye makeups? I would love to hear your opinion!
