Milani Runway Eyeshadow: Leaf Green

Milani Leaf Green Runway Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.07 oz.) looks like a medium grassy (or leafy, I suppose) green, but in actuality, it swatches as a chartreuse green with stronger yellow undertones.  It’s semi-sheer when applied dry, but it really looks beautiful when applied wet (and it still retains much of the same intensity and coloring when it dries down–I’d say 90%).   It has such a smooth, more metallic than shimmer look when applied wet–could be a nice substitute for MAC True Chartreuse pigment.  I do wish it would apply better when used dry, though, since it’s supposed to be used either way.

Check out my original review for my thoughts on the packaging.

  • Product: 24/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 2/5

RECOMMENDATION: Color eyeshadow fiends should probably pass, just because it’s nowhere near as pigmented as many top brands for color–but if you just want to play around and experiment with color, this is an affordable way to do so.

AVAILABILITY: Cherry Culture

  1. This color is probably the prettiest I’ve seen out of all the ones you’ve reviewed. I may pick it up just to try it, couldn’t hurt :)

  2. Not really my color. I have a color like this in my 88 palette and I rarely use it. So I wouldn’t bother buying this as a mono eyeshadow.

    I don’t personally like the colour, but your photo’s are just soooo beautiful. You are my happy place to come to, Christine! :)

    Hi Christine I was just wondering if you knew when the Venemous Villians Collection was coming out online?

    That is quite pretty wet! I can’t remember the name, but I have a Bare Escentuals shadow that looks the same dry as this Milani does wet. It was $14, though, so this would be a decent low-cost alternative.

    I like milani the only thing I don’t like about some of the eyeshadow is glitter, but this green looks to be very pretty.

  7. Nice Lime Green shade :) Especially when applied wet :)

  8. mirta

    nice but I got tarina tarantino in tokyo hardcore so I don’t need this :D

  9. Miss Silver

    The swatches almost look like iodine prep before an incision… or is it just me? It looked pretty in the pan, but sad that it just doesn’t look that nice when applied. Yikes!

    I like the green shadow when it’s applied wet, it looks nice.

  11. I’ve purcahsed many of these Milani runway shadows and while the colors are gorgeous in the package, I always have to pack it on for the color payoff. My friend borrowed a few of mine and by the end of the night she had major creasing. =/

    a pretty green but I dont really wear green eyeshadow

  13. Wow, it really is more yellow green than it appears in the container. Thank you for swatching!
