Milani Rich Java Baked Eyeshadow
Milani Baked Metallic Eyeshadow: Rich Java
Milani Rich Java Baked Metallic Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) a medium-dark chocolaty brown with subtle red undertones and a delicate bronze micro-shimmer layered on top. It did seem to pull redder in the pan, but when swatched, it’s much less apparent. The softer shimmer and finish of Rich Java really elevates it, too, because it has nice color coverage (though it seems less intense swatched than the color seen in the pan). It applies nearly the same wet as it does dry, just a little smoother.
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.
