Milani Teal the Truth Baked Eyeshadow

Milani Teal the Truth Baked Metallic Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark teal with soft bluish-teal shimmer.  This is a teal that leans bluer, but it’s really well balanced on the edge of green and blue.  In some light, it almost looks like there is more of an aqua color to it, but in other light, it seems bluer.  For a color that is, essentially, just teal, it is more nuanced than it appears.  It applied better wet than dry, as it applied smoother and the color was denser and more opaque.

Milani Pink Twice Baked Eyeshadow

Milani Pink Twice Baked Metallic Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) is medium-dark pink with a frost finish. Milani’s Baked Metallic Eyeshadows can be used wet or dry–wet for more intensity, dry for more luminosity (which, given the context, must mean sheerer color).  With Pink Twice, I found it applied about as well regardless of whether it was used wet or dry, but it did bind together a smidgen better wet so it had a smoother feel. I liked how this shade of the baked formula did not have any fall out issues, though, and the pigmentation level was nice–very true-to-pan color.

Milani I Heart You Baked Metallic Eyeshadow

Milani I Heart You Baked Metallic Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) is a coppery red with a shimmery, metallic finish.  It looks redder in the pan than it is when swatched–there is a coppery orange that is much more pronounced when applied.  It reminded me of MAC Coppering, but obviously in a baked form.

Milani Glamorous Gems Eyeshadow Palette

Milani Glamorous Gems Eyeshadow Palette ($8.99 for 0.32 oz.) includes six shades of eyeshadow, all coordinated and in thin, raised strips. They can be used wet or dry, but I found the color pay off too sheer to work with when used dry that I had to use them wet (all swatches are of them wet). I liked the colors in the palette and felt like they coordinated well with each other.

Milani Black Cherry Lipstick

Milani Black Cherry Lipstick ($4.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a blackened berry-red with nearly opaque color–it did not apply quite as nicely as other Milani shades. It looks a little dry, though it didn’t feel that way, and the color seemed to get drawn into my lip lines.
