Milani Baked Metallic Eyeshadow: Teal the Truth

Milani Teal the Truth Baked Metallic Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark teal with soft bluish-teal shimmer.  This is a teal that leans bluer, but it’s really well balanced on the edge of green and blue.  In some light, it almost looks like there is more of an aqua color to it, but in other light, it seems bluer.  For a color that is, essentially, just teal, it is more nuanced than it appears.  It applied better wet than dry, as it applied smoother and the color was denser and more opaque.

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.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!

For a drugstore baked shadow this is a really pretty, vibrant color and the pigmentation seems pretty decent. I usually use bright colors over Pixie Epoxy anyway, which gives a similar look to applying wet.

I bought this one and the purple after reading reviews. They are amazing and I had no problems wearing them dry… still amazing either way. Really impressed… I want to buy all of them now!

I am really impressed by the whole Milani line! Eyeshadows, liners, lipsticks, glosses, blushes, powder and bronzers are SUPERB and the price can not be beat!!!!
