Milani Melange Baked Eyeshadow

Milani Melange Baked Metallic Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) is a mix of smoldering, blackened brown, khaki gold, bronze, and silvered white. When applied, it’s very much a black gold–it has that really dark black-brown color base with khaki and bronze shimmer on top. This shade applies much sheerer when used dry, while applied wet, it has much more intense color pay off.

Milani Fusion Baked Eyeshadow

Milani Fusion Baked Metallic Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) is a melange of plum, gold, and copper that turns into a medium-dark bronzed brown with a soft bronze sheen.  This is one of the downsides of baked eyeshadows, especially onces that are swirled with other colors, because it looks so interesting in the pan but when swatched, it doesn’t seem as nuanced.  It applied well both wet and dry, with the wet version darkening just a smidgen.

Milani Drenched in Gold Baked Eyeshadow

Milani Drenched in Gold Baked Metallic Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) is a softened yellow gold with a metallic sheen.  It reminded me a lot of MAC’s Goldmine, which is a staple eyeshadow for me.  I liked the way this looked both wet and dry–there really wasn’t much of a difference-so it is more convenient to use.  It applied smoothly and had good color pay off with no fall out.

Milani Rich Java Baked Eyeshadow

Milani Rich Java Baked Metallic Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) a medium-dark chocolaty brown with subtle red undertones and a delicate bronze micro-shimmer layered on top.  It did seem to pull redder in the pan, but when swatched, it’s much less apparent.  The softer shimmer and finish of Rich Java really elevates it, too, because it has nice color coverage (though it seems less intense swatched than the color seen in the pan).  It applies nearly the same wet as it does dry, just a little smoother.

Milani Purr-fect Purple Baked Eyeshadow

Milani Purr-fect Purple Baked Metallic Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) is medium-dark red-toned purple with a silvered shimmer and sheen.  Of the several new shades Milani released, I was disappointed in this one–the pigmentation is just not nearly as intense as it looks in the pan.  The pan looks like a much more vibrant, violet purple with greater depth than is achieved when used (regardless of whether it is used wet or dry).

Milani Mix It Up Baked Eyeshadow

Milani Mix It Up Baked Metallic Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) is a blackened base with iridescent teal and silver shimmer. When used wet, it’s absolutely gorgeous–really rich and luxuriously deep in color. Used dry, less of the iridescent and sheen is visible and has a slightly powdery finish. Milani notes that these should be used dry for a softer look and wet for something more intense, which is why I think the pigmentation is as expected based on Milani’s claims.
