Silent Disco

Milk Makeup Silent Disco Eye Pigment ($24.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a blackened plum with warm, brown undertones and flecks of plum and pink sparkle. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, but it was hard to control the coverage and evenness on the lid except if I used a fingertip to sheer it out (but then it looked blotchy as this type of color often does at sheerer coverage levels). The larger sparkles seemed to impede the application and made the product lift from the area whenever I tried to even it out. It did not build up well, as it made the dried down texture uneven and chunky-looking. It lasted decently for nine hours but some larger pieces of product started to flake off.

The formula is supposed to be a “highly pigmented cream eyeshadow” that is “long-wearing” with a “soft, silky texture” that will dry “quickly without creasing” but is still “easily blendable.” I bought five shades (there are 11 in the range) and had good luck with three of them and found two to be more troublesome to use. It seemed like the more pearly shades were easier to use than the ones with larger sparkles. I wasn’t sure if the squeeze tube format was going to work, but it was fairly easy to dispense product without getting too much at once but product can get dried out and clog the opening.

The texture was smooth, creamy, and emollient enough to spread easily across the lid. They dried down quickly but I did not feel too rushed (I would still work one eye at a time, though). I noticed that they felt a bit heavier on the lids and had a tendency to cling and emphasize any texture on my lids (most noticeable on the inner portion of my lids). They lasted between nine and eleven hours on me with one of the more glittery shades crumbling over time. I applied mine using a flat, synthetic brush (like MAC 242) as well as fingertips, though I personally prefer brushes so that is what I reached for most of the time.

Mermaid Parade

Milk Makeup Mermaid Parade Eye Pigment ($24.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a bright, medium emerald green with subtle, warmer yellow undertones and cooler, greenish-teal shimmer. When applied in a single layer, it was incredibly pigmented and appeared cooler overall, but the more I blended it out, the yellower the base looked. I was surprised that it looked decent even sheered out, as it did not appear uneven. The texture was creamy enough to spread across the lid but pigmented enough that it remained opaque until I wanted to diffuse the edges. It wore well for twelve hours and still showed no signs of creasing or fading.

Wow, very shade dependent results. Purple is always a problem and I think more problematic in cream form. I can’t think of a single one in my stash that I’m super fond of. The mermaid shade isn’t for me, but it’s beautiful!

Silent Disco looks a bit scary, it looks crumbly, like something that can scratch the eye ball, ouch. Think MAC Higher Power looks and performs much better

Mermaid Parade! Oh, how beautiful this is, and it has a cute name to boot! Love it! 😍

But…wth is up with Silent Disco? If not for its chunky glitter, this one could have been awesome.

This is just so crazy to me. I know how hard it is to score an A+ for your reviews! And then the moment sparkle is involved that quality is thrown out the window.

The sparkle seemed to make it harder to get smooth, even coverage and then caused clumping, which then led to possibilities of flaking πŸ™

Oh how disappointing! I just received silent disco because the other two that I tried worked extremely well and I loved the formula! Hopefully it’s something that I can work with, but at least I know what to watch out for now, and it’s not like I can’t exchange it.

I bought a purple shade (I guess, Peep Show) in October from the SoHo Birchbox store. It swatched so, so beautifully on the back of my hand, but as soon as I tried it on my lids, it dried down crusty, creased horribly, and fell off in chunks. I’ve tried it with UD primer, a glitter glue, and a few samples… nothing keeps this stuff on my eyes.

Oh no! πŸ™ That is one I struggled with (I reviewed in previously) – Peep Show – and it was the worst I tried out of the five.
