Happy mid-week everyone!
Today I got a quick review and swatches for you guys on the Milani Shadow Eyez 12 Hr Wear Eyeshadow Pencils. You can find Milani products at CVS and some Walgreens… and of course on Milani’s website as well. These pencils retail for $7.49 each.
Ok so these jumbo eye pencils are multi-use. You can use them as a shadow, liner or even use them to highlight. They claim to be water resistant and crease-proof.
I currently have 4 shades of these pencils: Sand Dunes (shimmery taupe), Royal Purple (blue-purple sheen), Aquatic Style (aqua blue sheen), and Lovely Frost (silver metallic). All four colors are really pretty and very pigmented. They go on really smooth and blend out pretty decently for jumbo eye pencils. First time I wore these I wore Sand Dunes on the inner half of my lid & brow bone highlight and Royal Purple on the outer half of my lid. These two colors worked pretty well together. After 8+ hours of wear, they hadn’t creased or budged at all. These pencils set kind of fast and once they do set, they don’t budge until you remove them with makeup remover, so the water resistant claim is definitely valid.
I’ve become a fan of jumbo eye pencils over the last year (besides these I also own several of the NYX ones). They’re great to use alone as a shadow, a liner or even as a base for a similar colored powder shadow to give it a little extra “Oomph!”. I definitely recommend checking these pencils from Milani out. They come in a total of 12 shades, are cruelty-free and most of the shades in this line are even vegan-friendly.
Ok that should about do it! Have you tried these jumbo pencils by Milani? What do you think of them?
As always thank you all so much for reading! Enjoy the rest of your day and I’ll see you again Friday with a new post! 🙂
