Boasting a creamy smooth, long-lasting, water-resistant, crease-proof and paraben-free formula, Milani Shadow Eyez 12 Hour Wear Eyeshadow Pencils are new color-rich pencils that can double as both shadow and liner.

Milani Shadow Eyez 12 Hour Wear Eyeshadow Pencil Reviews

There are six 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!

  5. 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.

      • Oh that is great! Thanks :)

  6. These look amazing. You’ve got a great collection of colors, I must check these out.
