Milani Cosmetics: Runway Eyes Swatches, Review
Milani introduced these capturing eye shadow gems quite sometime ago and my local CVS is always, I mean always, sold out. But, Friday was my lucky day as there was only about five of these beauties left. Milani Runway Eyes ($4.99) are available in 12 stunning colors and are a silky, smooth eye shadow that delivers unbelieveable color that can be applied wet or dry. A two end applicator is included with the compact. One side is a sponge for wet applications and the other a brush from dry applications.
Looking at the pictures, the shadows look very shimmery and glittery but are not so. In fact, the sparkles are just the top layer which may have been intended for that quick-sell. I could see alot of people passing this up just because they look "way too glittery". The shimmer factor is about perfect. Yes - there is shimmer but it's not chunky. Honestly, some of the shades didn't even reflect shimmer when applied. The color pay-off and staying power was excellent and I highly recommend these.
Check out some photo swatches below.
I'm pretty much lemming all 12 shades which, may take sometime considering their never in stock.
Check out what else came home in my haul.
OMG, Did I mention GREEN! Saved the best for last, you guys! Good news is - Runway eyes are available in quads or should I say, sexts? Glamorous Gems, $6.99, (i spelled it wrong in my pic above, oops) is a mixture of six green, golds and bronze colors. I literally fainted when I saw Glamorous Gems in stock because I'd lost all hope by now. I'm still geeked about finding this in stock because it's so pretty to look at.
See the photo swatches below.
The color pay-off is quite good because I'm probably an NC-35 right now. I plan to mess around with these colors today and will report back on the staying power and so on.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
PS: MAC Starflash and Lustre twins are now available at Nordstrom, Pro and MAC stores on the 31st!
