Milani Just Perfect Eyeshadow
Not Quite Perfect
Milani Just Perfect Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.11 oz.) is described as smoky, muted bluish-teal with a gray cast and a frosted finish. It’s one of those fun colors to review, because it’s blue, it’s teal, it’s green, it’s gray! MAC Rain Drop is more teal colored, less gray. Urban Decay Hijack has a blacker base color, so it appears darker. MAC Emerald Dusk is darker and bluer. L’Oreal Endless Sea is a smidgen bluer. MAC Sky has gold shimmer. Urban Decay Shattered is very similar, but it also has gold shimmer.
Milani describes their latest powder eyeshadow formula as “super pigmented, easily blendable, crease-proof, [and] silk-like.” I’ve been loving their new powder eyeshadows lately, but Just Perfect is a little less than that. The texture is on the drier, stiffer side, so the color payoff is decent to good, but it’s definitely not super pigmented. I worried it was going to be difficult to apply and blend, but it performed better on the lid.I did have to build up the color, but I did not have trouble blending the color and softening the edges. It wore for eight hours without creasing both over a primer and just on bare lids–there was a smidgen of fading.
