With makeup, it’s an escape – it’s pretty, fun, and drama-free (well, it’s supposed to be!), so I like a product that impresses me on all fronts.  With more affordable brands, sometimes packaging or textures are a little less refined.  At the end of the day, I reach for the best products I own, whether they were $2 or $40.

Milani Baked Metallic Eyeshadow: Mix It Up

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.

I do wish they’d ditch the sponge/brush applicator, though, because the bristles are splayed and scratchy, while the sponge is thin and surprisingly scratchy. I did like the switch to a black interior, over the champagne gold from the Runway Eyeshadows. The lid is also quite secure, and I had to pry it open with my nails.
