Milani Olympian Blue Eyeshadow
Shadow Like an Olympian
Milani Olympian Blue Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.11 oz.) is a rich medium blue with a matte finish. MAC Blue Candy is lighter. MAC Electric Eel is comparable. MAC Freshwater is a smidgen darker and frosted. Inglot #371 is a touch lighter. Inglot #322 is similar. Make Up For Ever #72 is also comparable. This is one shade that has a lot of dupes–this, of course, is the most affordable!
Olympian Blue is highly pigmented, just as described, with an ultra-finely milled, silky soft texture that’s easy to blend. I love that it’s not so soft that it’s powdery, and it doesn’t disappear once applied. You don’t have to pack this color on at all–it’s very intense and stays that way, even as you blend around the edges. When I tried it out, it wore for a full eight hours without primer and there was no apparent fading or creasing.
