Pink-aroo

Milani Pink-aroo Ludicrous Lights Duo Chrome Highlighter ($10.99 for 0.24 oz.) is a medium-dark, pink-coral with flecks of pink-to-violet shifting shimmer and sparkle. It had semi-opaque coverage in a single layer–it was far more pigmented than other shades in the line and more so than expected based on the formula’s claims–that could be applied with a lighter hand to get sheerer, more buildable coverage.

The texture was fairly smooth to the touch, as there was a lot of shimmer and sparkle in this particular shade, which did come through by touch. It wasn’t too softly nor too firmly pressed into the pan, so it wasn’t prone to excess kicked up in the pan and was easy to work with. The highlighter applied evenly to my cheeks and blended out without difficulty, though there were a few stray sparkles that went a little further than anticipated. It stayed on well for eight hours but had slight migration of some sparkles over time.

Formula Overview

$10.99/0.24 oz. - $45.79 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have buildable coverage that "blends and builds seamlessly" with a "silky, ultra-smooth" consistency. The texture was soft without being powdery, smooth (but noticeably sparkly), and blendable on my skin. There was a mix of finer shimmer and smaller flecks of sparkle throughout that gave it a very iridescent, smooth sheen to skin.

The coverage ranged from semi-sheer to mostly opaque, buildable in most instances, and was fairly blendable. There were some stray sparkles that dusted away during application and some that moved during wear, though most of the color wore well for eight hours.

I thought for sure I’d love this but for some strange reason, it seems to have almost a blue-ish, bruise-looking undertone to it. I wonder if it’s because of the violet shift you mentioned, Christine. I’ll pass on this.
