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.
