Milani Baked Metallic Eyeshadow: Purr-fect Purple

Milani Purr-fect Purple Baked Metallic Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) is medium-dark red-toned purple with a silvered shimmer and sheen.  Of the several new shades Milani released, I was disappointed in this one–the pigmentation is just not nearly as intense as it looks in the pan.  The pan looks like a much more vibrant, violet purple with greater depth than is achieved when used (regardless of whether it is used wet or dry).

Milani could ditch that curved sponge/brush applicator, 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.

The Glossover

product

Purr-fect Purple

B-
The color suffers from sheerness, even when applied dampened, which makes it one of the weaker shades from the recent launch of Milani's baked eyeshadows. The color is also more muted than it appears in the pan.

  1. Even if this is sheer, it looks like it could work for a smokey purple eye.

  2. Carrie

    Not a bad color, but not what I would have expected based on what was in the pan. Shame!

  3. I love purples, but I don’t dig the sheerness. SKIP!

    It looks very pretty and that says a lot for a purple hater like me. Why do the makers bother putting a brush in the pot? They are rarely well made.

  5. Kayla

    I, too, love purples. But I hate how much of a silver/gray tone this one has! It’s so hard finding a decent blue-based purple.

  6. I got this recently..wore it 1 time and gave it away..that beautiful shade of purple that I saw at the store when I bought it was NOTHING like i expected when I put it on..maybe if you layer it with something else it will be better.

    I have purchased a few Milani shadows only to find that no matter if I apply wet or dry, I get nothing….NOTHING! Yes, it’s cheap, but it’s not worth a red cent.

  9. Shalimar

    It is pretty but not a shade of purple I was expecting. I would probably get a better payout with Kleancolors eyeshadows.

  10. Carina

    regardless of the sheerness I still think its a good outcome of color

  11. Lorena

    I actually would not pick this up if it went on as vibrant as it looks in the pan, but I like the sfter way in which it goes on alot!
