Milani Baked Metallic Eyeshadow: Blue My Mind

Milani Blue My Mind Baked Metallic Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark navy blue with a shimmery, metallic finish. Milani’s Baked Metallic Eyeshadows can be used wet or dry–wet for more intensity, dry for more luminosity (which, given the context, must mean sheerer color).

Last time I reviewed Milani eyeshadows, I found them to be so lacking that they made me rather angry. In fact, Blue My Mind resembles Blue Lagoon in the pan color, but thankfully, it’s infinitely better. I was really hesitant to try these, because I feared for the worst, but I’m glad I moved past that fear.

The texture is fairly smooth and soft, but when applied, there is a touch of fall out. It’s not unforgivable, but I did notice it. Given the nature of baked eyeshadows, Blue My Mind does apply smoother and more evenly when applied wet than dry, but still, it is quite pigmented when used dry.

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.

another “blue my mind” aha, sorry, but it just seems that there’s many companies with a product with that name!! (ex. opi, mac) But anyways, the colour’s gorgous!

Will you be reviewing their color Purrfect Purple as well? I’ve been dying to get my hands on it but would love a review before I purchase it.

That is intense- I’m impressed because this is definitely looking more pigmented than the older Milani shadows I have (and regret buying!) If they are all like this from now on I would start buying their shadows again.

I would dearly love to see how this looks on the lid over a base of some sort. I’m wondering if the color will stay true.. I hope so because it’s GORGEOUS! Thanks for the pictures 🙂

I’ve seen them at Fred Meyer’s, Rite Aid and Walgreen’s (I think) in the Northwest.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen Milani at my local Target.
