Milani Just Perfect Eyeshadow
Milani Just Perfect Eyeshadow

Not Quite Perfect

Milani Just Perfect Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.11 oz.) is described as smoky, muted bluish-teal with a gray cast and a frosted finish. It’s one of those fun colors to review, because it’s blue, it’s teal, it’s green, it’s gray! MAC Rain Drop is more teal colored, less gray. Urban Decay Hijack has a blacker base color, so it appears darker. MAC Emerald Dusk is darker and bluer. L’Oreal Endless Sea is a smidgen bluer. MAC Sky has gold shimmer. Urban Decay Shattered is very similar, but it also has gold shimmer.

Milani describes their latest powder eyeshadow formula as “super pigmented, easily blendable, crease-proof, [and] silk-like.”  I’ve been loving their new powder eyeshadows lately, but Just Perfect is a little less than that.  The texture is on the drier, stiffer side, so the color payoff is decent to good, but it’s definitely not super pigmented.  I worried it was going to be difficult to apply and blend, but it performed better on the lid.I did have to build up the color, but I did not have trouble blending the color and softening the edges.  It wore for eight hours without creasing both over a primer and just on bare lids–there was a smidgen of fading.

I wish this shade was a bit softer and more pigmented, then it would really be Just Perfect (ha!) -- the wear is still good, and I was able to build up the color enough on the lid.

    Certainly my kind of color and at that price I can deal with less-than-perfect.

    Hmmm, this reminds me of a lighter version of MAC Birds&Berries from Liberty of London which is one of my favorite shades (and one of the only blues I can pull off).

    I just love this colour. Christine – do you know whether this formula can be used wet? If so, I may improve the drier texture.

  4. Lovely shade, I just wish it was more pigmented.

  5. Nicoco Chanel

    Gosh, it really is Shattered without the gold. I get the same “happy feeling” from looking at it! Cute. :3

    what did you put for that bright blue on your water line?

    What eyeliner(s) are you wearing in this picture? The blue is gorgeous!

  8. I see what you did there ;)

  9. I really like Milani – their products are so affordable yet generally great quality. Too bad this shadow isn’t more pigmented, but it’s still cool to see a color/product like this at the drugstore.

  10. I’ve always wondered about Milani. I never bought a Milani product because they are so cheap (literally), so I was afraid the quality might be cheap too.

  11. No point in mooning over it as the only place to get it is online…..as CVS doesnt even carry it.
