Milani Baked Metallic Eyeshadow: Teal the Truth

Milani Teal the Truth Baked Metallic Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark teal with soft bluish-teal shimmer.  This is a teal that leans bluer, but it’s really well balanced on the edge of green and blue.  In some light, it almost looks like there is more of an aqua color to it, but in other light, it seems bluer.  For a color that is, essentially, just teal, it is more nuanced than it appears.  It applied better wet than dry, as it applied smoother and the color was denser and more opaque.

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.

Teal the Truth

B+
It's a particularly gorgeous and well-made shade when used wet, but when used dry, there are some pigmentation issues (and resulting uneven color) that resulted in a lower score.

  1. For a drugstore baked shadow this is a really pretty, vibrant color and the pigmentation seems pretty decent. I usually use bright colors over Pixie Epoxy anyway, which gives a similar look to applying wet.

  2. Beautiful color. Is this anything like MAC Odalisque?

  3. Astra

    reminds me of a mermaid’s tail color.

    Any dupes you can think of?

  4. I really love these types of teal :>

  5. Alyssa

    I bought this one and the purple after reading reviews. They are amazing and I had no problems wearing them dry… still amazing either way. Really impressed… I want to buy all of them now!

  6. Shirley

    Is this comparable to Mac’s teal pigment?

  7. Michelle

    The last thing I need is a teal eyeshadow, but this is SO pretty!

    I am really impressed by the whole Milani line! Eyeshadows, liners, lipsticks, glosses, blushes, powder and bronzers are SUPERB and the price can not be beat!!!!

    Did you get the labels wrong? The one on the left looks much better than the right! Maybe it’s just my eyes though.
