~purchased by me~
I saw these new items from Milani and they look interesting so I thought “why not?” Personally, I prefer pencil liners but I’m always willing to try something new and/or interesting.
This product claims “vibrant color, long wearing, smudge proof and precision brush applicator”. You can create a classic cat eye or a smoldering smoky look.
The back reads…
Long wearing, smooth-gliding gel eyeliner. Perfect for creating thin to thick lines or smoky looks.
*Gently press the tip of the applicator into the pot to load color. Top off excess to avoid fall out.
*Starting at the inner corners, dot along the upper lash line and wiggle the brush to blend.
FOR THE CLASSIC CAT EYE:
Slightly extend the end of the liner past the lash line.
FOR A SMOLDERING SMOKY LOOK:
Use brush to blend product upward and away from the lash line. Soften edges using finger.
INGREDIENTS: ISOPROPYL MYRISTATE, ISOHEXADECANE, CALCIUM SODIUM BOROSILICATE, POLYETHYLENE, STEAROXY DIMETHICONE, DISTEARDIMONIUM HECTORITE, ISODODECANE, PROPYLENE CARBONATE, CERA ALBA (BEESWAX), COPERNICIA CERIFERA CERA (CARNAUBA WAX), SILICA, PHENOXYETHANOL, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, ISOPENTYLDIOL, SYNTHETIC FLOURPHLOGOPITE, HYDROGENATED POLYBUTENE, MICA, TIN OXIDE, TITANIUM DIOXIDE (CI 77891), IRON OXIDE (CI 77499). +/- MAY CONTAIN: FERRIC FERROCYANIDE (CI77510).
Before I continue with pictures and swatches of all the eyeliners, here are some things I noticed:
- I realized that all the shimmer and glitter is just overspray as soon as I dig in to get some product. So I have included a picture of the product with a portion without overspray so you can see what it looks like underneath. I am actually happy with this because it means that I can actually use this.
- The brush is actually useable and has a nice handle length. The brush can effectively make a thin and thick line.
- It is a dream to apply, smooth gliding but it seems like it took forever to start drying. Or maybe because I did not let it dry in layers. Nonetheless, it should not be a problem.
- did not experience fall out
- vibrant color pay off
I will update with more details once I am able to play with all three.
01 ENCHANTED LAPIS
Enchanted Lapis is a beautiful dark blue. Named after the deep blue semi-precious stone. I do not really gravitate towards using blue on my lids, but this is just too beautiful.
02 ENCHANTED BLACK OPAL
Enchanted Black Opal is beautiful and elegant. I would love to wear it as a lid color because of nuances it will give off when light hits it. The finish is not flat at all. It looks like molten lava without the fire. It’s charcoal black with a satin, slightly metallic finish. Truly beautiful.
03 ENCHANTED EMERALD
Enchanted Emerald is also stunning (oh no! I can’t choose a favorite). Just like Black Opal, the finish is a bit complex. It’s not entirely metallic (at least not to me). Another one for those moments when one needs a pop of color. Perfect for fall.
Now for the brush that’s included in each product. I actually like it. The bristles are firm enough so you can create a thin line if you want to.
Thanks for dropping by and please share your thoughts on this new product from Milani.
