Milani Mix It Up Baked Metallic Eyeshadow($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) is a blackened base with iridescent teal and silver shimmer. When used wet, it’s absolutely gorgeous–really rich and luxuriously deep in color. Used dry, less of the iridescent and sheen is visible and has a slightly powdery finish. Milani notes that these should be used dry for a softer look and wet for something more intense, which is why I think the pigmentation is as expected based on Milani’s claims.
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.
Dior Rosy Tan (754) Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 0.21 oz.) is the companion quint to Rosy Nude–they read almost day and night to me. They’re similar yet not the same. Rosy Tan is darker and deeper overall, but it also has cooler undertones.
The top left shade is a lightened cotton candy pink with subtle blue undertones and a white shimmered finish. To the right of that shade, there is a dark, burgundied brown with a satin sheen. On the bottom right, we have a dirty, bronzy brown with a reflective, metallic sheen. Beside it, there is a soft, rose-tinted beige brown with a pearled finish. In the center, there is a brightened pink-tinged white with a shiny, metallic finish. I found the rosy beige to be just a hair sheer, while the center shade was a touch sheerer than that, though both still had good color pay off (think about the difference between good and excellent–noticeable but not necessarily a deal breaker).
Translucent shaded sienna colors framed in non opaque, luminous bases for infinite layering and blending of earthy colored lights. From the softest, evanescent color veil, to an intense sheer color vibrancy. Incandescent amber eyes. An iridescent light gold blends with rose sand and diluted ochre tones to create a subtil incandescent amber eye. Shaped with earthy brown liner for deep contour intensity. Power color becomes evanescent captivation. Sensuous earth bath for skin and lips. Transparent tanned skin infused with a play of coral and red earthy lights on cheeks and lips.
