Milani Shadow Eyez 12 Hour Wear Eye Shadow 01 Winter White-Review, Photos, Swatches



Company/Brand Claim: 12 hour wear eye shadow

For Skin Type: All

Packaging: Thick chubby pencil with transparent plastic cap

Product Coverage: Sheer

Formulation: Cream

Texture and Feel: Very soft but transfers a lot of product.

Color: 01 Winter White
       
Fragrance: A very slight wooden fragrance

Application: Wear it like a regular eye shadow.

Result: Milani shadow eyez is a creamy eye shadow pencil which does not offer anything out of the ordinary. It is an eye shadow pencil and is suppose to work as an alternate to regular pan eye shadows. Now there are a few things of concern. Firstly, it is pigmented as it claims but sheers down to a very light color if you try blend it with your fingers or even a brush. The pencil transfers a lot of product which is OK with some of its shades but I wouldn't want to wear a lot of white shadow alone. You will need a thick pencil sharpener for this and that will of course waste a lot product. The uses I can think for it are as an eye shadow base, to highlight the tear duct and eyebrows. I would not recommend using it on the lower lash line as it clumps the lashes and makes the eyes seem zombie like. If you're into very bright looks or don't mind the sheer look after blending then you should try one out. 

Staying Power: Will last a few good hours if not rubbed away.

Times Tested: Several times
 
Cons: Not blendable

Anything Else: I wish it was a twist up. A sharpener can really eat it up quickly.

Milani Shadow Eyez 12 Hour Wear Eye Shadow comes in a 2.8 grams content pencil and is available in 6 bright shades and 6 neutral shades including a black.

Rating: 2/5





Take it:

You're looking for a color eye shadow base
You're into bright colors
You prefer metallic finish
You like bright eye makeup looks
You want to wear it as a highlighter for brows and tear duct

Leave it:

You find it hard to blend
You have oily lids 
You want to wear it as kajal 
You don't want to wear it alone as an eye shadow
You don't like sheer coverage
You find it expensive

Price: Rs. 950/-  
Available at: 
Pakistan: Naheeds, Chase-up and other leading super stores. Online at Just4Girls and Beauty Arena.
UAE: -

Alternatives:  White shadow pencils available locally can do a similar job for a much lesser price. I have one named Italia ultra fine eye liner in shade 717 White Pearl which can be used as kajal and highlighter. I highly recommend it over the shadow eyez.

Conclusion: I love Milani for its range of products and bright colors but this one just falls flat. Recommended? No.
