Milani Glitter Eyeliner

Milani Glitter Eyeliner ($5.99) is new for spring, and it’s available in six shades: Precious Silver, Emerald Stone, Purple Quartz, Terra Brown, Blue Topaz, and Black Rocks.

  • Black Rocks is a dark black base with silver micro-glitter.
  • Emerald Stone is an turquoise-green with silver micro-glitter.
  • Blue Topaz is a softened sky blue with silver micro-glitter.

I’m pleased to report that these pencil eyeliners are easy to use and last well on the lower lash line. I didn’t experience any budging, smudging, or migration when I wore these on my lower lash line. What I really liked about these was how smooth and soft they were when I applied the color to my lower lash line. Some glitter eyeliners have a grittier texture, which makes them less than ideal for application on such sensitive areas as the lash line.

A fun detail is on the opposite side of the pencil is a smudging sponge, but I found these didn’t smudge that well–even when first applied. That’s fine for me, since I’d rather have it never smudge than smudge a little. I also prefer using the 219 and eyeshadow to really smoke out or smudge the lash line!

    Thanks so much for this review! I can not wait to get them! Milani has come out with some really cool stuff lately. It’s nice to find stuff inexpensive make-up with great quality!

    Hey Christine,
    I recently acquired the MAC Bottle Green e/s from the Pro store. I want to recreate your brown/teal eye look. How would Emerald Stone compare to the MUFE pencil you used – 20L?

  3. the green one is beautiful :)

  4. LNU

    Would you say these compare to liquif’eye and UD?

  5. seeing these swatched, these are the least exciting part of a very exciting new collection from milani. the glitter is not very visible and the colors are pretty pale and blah.

  6. Kalee

    lol i almost bought a couple of these but didnt because i wasnt sure about them. thanks for the review!

  7. Alisha

    Has anyone tried any other Milani eyeliners besides these and the metallic liquif’eye ones that were recently reviewed? Just wondering cuz I went to pick up the metallic ones and saw their other products and was wondering if they were any good or soft, I hate hard eyeliner….ick! Would be nice to have some UD 24/7 dupes!

  8. audrey

    Can these be used as bases on eyelids???

  9. the greens looks gorgeous!

  10. I’m going to have to check these out. I checked out the Liquif’ Eye eyeliner and it is WONDERFUL!!!!

    • Yay! So glad you like the Liquif’Eyes! I like these a lot, too, though I’d LOVE these more if they had the softness of Liquif’Eye, too!

  11. OMG! These are such a surprise! 😮 Love them! :)

    This is not related to the eyeliners, but I just got a new soft ochre paint pot and is the top layer supposed to be sort of…dry? Does it need “breaking into?” Thank you!

    • Hmm… I know there’s a certain look to it, but I don’t remember it being dry… to be honest, I have never gotten through a paint pot to repurchase :(

    • Carrie

      I actually squirt a little bit of Mac Matte onto my finger before dipping it into my Mac Paint Pot Painterly each morning. I find that this turns it into a creamier texture & is much easier to apply. Hope this helps!

  13. Oooh, they’re lovely! The colors look fabulous. And the price is definitely right. I might have to run and get them in every color. Thanks for the review :)

  14. amy

    Emerald Stone is beautiful!

  15. Jae

    Ahhh!!! Thank god these are affordable. >_<

  16. Oooh, these look gorgeous and they sound awesome too! I so want the teal one!

  17. Rosie

    I lost my Oil Slick liner that came in the Super Stash and I really liked it and wanted to replace it. Luckily I saw this review and picked up Black Rocks. They had brown at the store and my Bourbon is running low so I’ll probably pick that up as well. For the other liner you reviewed, they only have black and I have a whole Zero left so I don’t really need to buy another. I like the blue liner.

  18. Hilana

    I love these, but sadly this is not available in SA. However, if I ever come across a blue or green like that, I would buy it because on the odd occasion, I look for a light blue liner like this, and the green would look awesome too.

  19. Wow Emerald Stone and Blue Topaz looks sooo pretty ♥

  20. this is amazing i love Milani more and more! they have been doing great jobs putting out amazing products!

    Hey Christine,
    How did these compare to MAC greasepaint sticks?

    • Greasepaint sticks are more like a jumbo eyeshadow pencil or an eyeshadow base, whereas these are just eyeliners. The colors, texture, and feel of them are completely different, IMO.

  22. ally

    the light blue is beautiful <3 where did you purchase these?

    I have this liner in Black Rocks. Got it with a 2 for 1 Milani deal. Didn’t even realize it had a smudger! LOL So I just opened mine up and discovered by accident that if you pull out the smudger, it even has a sharpener! Perfect for all my liners of this type! Sweet! I haven’t used this much since I got it but just now layered it over Milani’s Infinite liquid liner. Works even better that way, although it’s very pigmented even on it’s own. Will be using both the Milani products later today when I do my full makeup & picking up more of these I think. Thanks for pointing out the smudger! I never would have discovered that or the sharpener had you not! :-)
