Milani Baked Metallic Eyeshadow: Fusion

Milani Fusion Baked Metallic Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) is a melange of plum, gold, and copper that turns into a medium-dark bronzed brown with a soft bronze sheen.  This is one of the downsides of baked eyeshadows, especially onces that are swirled with other colors, because it looks so interesting in the pan but when swatched, it doesn’t seem as nuanced.  It applied well both wet and dry, with the wet version darkening just a smidgen.

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.


DCDiscontinued. $6.99.

Looks lovely in the pot and the color is quite pretty as well! Could you perhaps review the Laura Mercier baked eyeshadows if you happen to have them? They look ever so gorgeous and I’d like to know if they’re worth the price if I’m going to invest in a set! 🙂

Oh, it’s alright! I actually will be picking up a few of the Milani baked shadows because the price point is so much easier to justify 😛 Although…I did give in to getting a Mercier one in Black Karat just now and love it!

The variety in marbling is why I end up digging through the entire pile of baked shadows anytime I buy one. I have found that if you’re lucky enough, you can find one with some different sized veining and possibly get some different shades in application, but it totally depends!

Looks beautiful in the pan, like something I’d like to wear as a ring or piece of jewelry! You hit the nail on the head though, it’s sad it doesn’t show up that way 🙁 with the exception of something like mineralized blushes, that’s the reason I tend to skip the eyshadows. This is pretty even swatched though… just not purple!

The eyeshadow’s good and cheap enough that I would totally buy it irrespective of how the color actually looks, lol. I don’t have enough browns, anyway.

It looks suspiciously close to MAC MES in Mercurial except not as complex when swatched. Nice effort though and nice price.

Oh so beautiful in the pan and a lovely color combo but a disappointment when used. In and of itself the swatch is nice but when compared to the pan, it seems almost blah. However, given the price and my current budget, I would still indulge as the color actually is very pretty in the end.

Wouldn’t bother buying this at all. That’s such a gorgeous plum swirled in there but it’s not even slightly visible in the swatch. Turns out to be yet another bronze toned eye shadow. Of which there are already a ridiculous amount of. A major yawn, unfortunately. Thank god for your swatches, otherwise I would have bought this just because it would look so beautiful on the display.
