Milani Runway Eyes And Color Brilliance Eye Pencils

The other day, I received a package in the mail. When I opened it, I was surprised to find a generous assemblage of beauty bounty – courtesy of my friends at Milani.

The colors are absolutely yummy to look at. And though many of the color options appear quite bold, they are surprisingly wearable.

The lighter colors are so sheer that they compliment a wide variety of skin tones. And the darker shades can be used to create a very easy smoky eye when applied with a dry brush – even for those of you who typically gravitate towards paler eye colors. The only warning I have is that these shadows aren’t particularly long-lasting; so I would advise prepping the lid with a primer. My recommendation is Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion. Otherwise, these get the Spoiled Pretty seal of approval. Scroll down for more color swatches.

I was also impressed by Milani’s Color Brilliance Eye Pencils. The pencils go on very creamy, apply smoothly – so they won’t tug on your eyelid, and the color payout is very good. In the pic, you can see the colors I received (black, purple, aqua, and green).

Milani cosmetics are available at your local drugstore.

    Thanks for the pics and reviews, these look gorgeous! I can’t resist pretty bold colors. I’ll definitely have to scour the make-up aisles for these, don’t think I’ve seen this brand around here yet :(

    i have the gold shadow and the navy blue shadow. when wet, they appear very bold but can easily fit many diff complections. & i do agree, they dont last very long. i like pairing the gold shadow with a bronze liner. it looks gorgeous. i got mine from cvs, too.

    Hey Daneen,

    I LOVE Milani shadows. Almondine is a staple in my makeup bag. It’s the perfect base. These look amazing…I love the bronzy gold colors….and little rounded brushes are so cute!

    Thanks for the recs!
