April 26, 2012

Milani Shadow Eyez 12 Hour Wear Eyeshadow Pencil


There are 6 great colors to choose from, including three neutrals and three brights:

01 Winter White is a shimmery white.

02 Brown Deluxe is a metallic bronze with copper sparkles.

03 Champagne Toast is a metallic peachy champagne.

04 Green Safari is a metallic green and the most unqiue color out of the bunch.

05 Aquatic Style is a metallic aqua blue.

06 Royal Purple is a matte purple.

Like my favorite Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencils and NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils, these glide on just like butter. The pigmentation is unbeatable, except for Winter White and Royal Purple, which are slightly sheerer and require a few more layers to be opaque. I also like that you can apply a thin line with these despite their chubby size and they make a perfect base for powder eyeshadows and loose glitter.

As for the claim of being long-lasting, water-resistant, crease-proof? Totally true! The pencils stayed on my bare lids for 10 hours straight without shifting or fading the slightest bit, yet come off easily with an oil-based remover.

At just $5.99 a pop, these are definitely more than just a bargain. Head over to your closest CVS NOW to get some!

    Aquatic Style is really pretty against your skin. I might have to pick it up and have you teach me how to use it =D

    I have to go to CVS ASAP! Looks amazing, I love the 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencils. Do you think Champagne Toast is a dupe for UD Sin?

      Hi Julie,

      Champagne Toast is a teeny bit cooler and lighter on me but the difference is so minute I would consider it a great dupe for UD Sin.
