Milani Eyeshadow Review

These e/s have been discontinued and replaced by dome-like e/s that is disappointing. I lucked out and purchased these for $1.50 each (with free shipping) on ebay.

The Product:

The Swatches:
Swatched without primer on nc25, MUFE 120 skin.

PROS: The pigmentation on Java Bean, Flare, and Desert Sun are amazing! I am not a fan of Sheer Sand as its, well, too sheer. The colors are much prettier in person and they all have a fine shimmer to them.

CONS: The packaging is horrible! I cannot figure out how to depot the e/s and the e/s is so fragile! I dropped one of the e/s and the shadow broke! I also remember shipping one in the mail and it arrived in pieces! :*(

Overall, you can't beat the price for such lovely colors!

All products were purchased by me and I am not in any way affiliated with a related makeup company or organization.


  1. How do you think that Java Bean compares to any of the MAC colours? From what I've seen on the interwebz, people can't decide whether it's a dupe for Woodwinked, Mulch, Sable or Twinks :P

  2. Sadly I don't have any of those colors, but I have swatched them at MAC. Java Bean is an amazing color in itself. I would say its slightly darker than Mulch. My picture doesn't do it justice and I may try to post new pics in better lighting.
