It's been a very long time since I last posted. I've been traveling a lot lately and have been living out of my Samsonite carry-on luggage for the past month and a half, and so I apologize for the lack of posts. I've always been a fan of shadow liners, but I've never tried Milani. When I started to read rave reviews on these chubby pencils, I knew I had to try them out.
I think you can tell from these swatches that the pencils are ultra-creamy and apply with a nice even coverage. The top color is Espresso Line and the bottom is Cafe Au Lait. I chose to try out these everyday colors which I thought would become staples in my makeup bag... and they have!
For this simple eye look, I applied Cafe Au Lait all over my lid to just above the crease and blended any harsh lines. I then applied a navy blue liner to my upper lash line, and used Espresso Line to line the lower 2/3 of my lower lash line. I kept the rest of my look very simple by applying Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait to my lips.
These liners apply opaquely, but can easily be blended out to be semi-sheer. You have enough time to blend before these shadows set, and once they do, I was able to wear these all day with mild, even fading by the 12th hour.
Bottom line: I'm kind of obsessed with these chubby shadow liners. They're affordable, so creamy, and go with any of my everyday looks. Love! I bought these for $6.99 at Walgreens.
Do you use Milani? And if so, what products do you love?
