Milani Baked Metallic Eyeshadow: Blue My Mind

Milani Blue My Mind Baked Metallic Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark navy blue with a shimmery, metallic 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).

Last time I reviewed Milani eyeshadows, I found them to be so lacking that they made me rather angry. In fact, Blue My Mind resembles Blue Lagoon in the pan color, but thankfully, it’s infinitely better. I was really hesitant to try these, because I feared for the worst, but I’m glad I moved past that fear.

The texture is fairly smooth and soft, but when applied, there is a touch of fall out. It’s not unforgivable, but I did notice it. Given the nature of baked eyeshadows, Blue My Mind does apply smoother and more evenly when applied wet than dry, but still, it is quite pigmented when used dry.

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.

Blue My Mind

It's a rather nice shimmery navy blue. I do like that it can be used wet or dry, just because it makes it a more versatile product.

  1. Thats a gorgous blue..looks a bit like MAC siahi fluidline

  2. Wow, that is an intense blue! I have some of the the Milani baked blushes and LOVE them, so its good to know that the eye shadows are equally as good.

  3. Alisha

    That is such a pretty blue!

  4. Oh, I actually remembered the last time because your recommendation was ‘Run away’ (which made me laugh). This is much nicer though. =]

  5. It looks AMAZING in the pan, too bad I don’t really like the swatches :(

  6. Rae

    Is that ever *gorgeous*! It’s nice to know that the entire like isn’t lacking :)

  7. This is a gorgeous blue! I’ve been avoiding the Milani eyeshadows after your review of the older ones, but maybe I’ll have to give this one a try!

  8. Rosie

    I have a love of blue eyeshadow even though I don’t use it as much as green or purple but this is lovely. Thanks for the review!

  9. Becca

    another “blue my mind” aha, sorry, but it just seems that there’s many companies with a product with that name!! (ex. opi, mac) But anyways, the colour’s gorgous!

  10. Nicole

    Will you be reviewing their color Purrfect Purple as well? I’ve been dying to get my hands on it but would love a review before I purchase it.

  11. Looks a little darker than MAC Freshwater, but lighter than Deep Truth.

  12. That is intense- I’m impressed because this is definitely looking more pigmented than the older Milani shadows I have (and regret buying!) If they are all like this from now on I would start buying their shadows again.

  13. Rachael

    Oh, this is a nice color.

  14. I’ll have to pick his up, then; it’s so puuurdy.

  15. I would dearly love to see how this looks on the lid over a base of some sort. I’m wondering if the color will stay true.. I hope so because it’s GORGEOUS! Thanks for the pictures :)

  16. Hmm, is this comparable to the solid side of MAC’s Sea and Sky?

  17. Very pretty shade and so pigmented! :) :)

  18. dani

  19. Lara

    Very pretty! I wish it came with a better applicator, though, but that’s not a big deal.

  21. Aubree

    wow. beautiful for a drugstore colour!

  22. I absolutely love the Milani baked metallic eyeshadows. “Blue My Mind” is by far my favorite color in the entire collection

  23. Jules

    Hey Christine. So I saw the last picture on this post and I decided to look up some of the ingredients listed by going to I found out that at least 2 ingredients are rated as moderately hazardous. Just thought I should give you the heads up.

  24. Cheri

    I see you say you can get it at Milani, but can you get it at Target too? or is it an exclusive?

  25. Ana

    Haha, those applicators are an abomination.

  26. Jess
