Review: Milani Eyeshadow Pencils

One of ilani’s latest releases has been their cream eyeshadow pencils. They come in a variety of colors from neutrals to bold brights.

These pencils are really nice.  They are creamy and do not tug at your eyelid when you apply them.  They blend well (the white one blends a little too well for certain eye looks).  I didn’t have any creasing and they easily lasted a good 10 hours without fading.

The only issue I had was with the white pencil.  These pencils claim to be highly pigmented, which the blue one is, but when you touch the white shadow, it turns into a sheen.  Its pretty, don’t get me wrong, but the color is almost impossible to build.  It makes a beautiful highlight though.

So, have you picked up any of these shadows and if so what do you think of them?

I purchased these products myself and as always these are my own, honest opinions.

20% off Milani Powdered Eyeshadows at CVS Online

I don’t know about you guys, but I have been to every CVS in my area at least 3 times each trying to find the new Milani Powdered Eyeshadows. For whatever reason it escaped me to look on the cvs.com for them…..until tonight!

In desperation I hopped on the web and sure enough, there were the shadows, well, most of them anyway. I really wanted Caramel Brown and Olympian Blue, but they were sold out. Anyway, I was able to get the other ones I wanted and I got 20% off with the coupon code 20DISCOUNT. This code is good until June 24th so if you want some of these shadows, or anything else on the site for that matter (its 20% off everything) hurry up. The discount gives you $1 off each shadow making them $3.99 each.

I did have to pay shipping, grrrrr, but hey, I’ve spent more than that running around from one CVS to another trying to hunt these eyeshadows down.

Of course I’ll haul them when they get here, but in case you are interested I picked up Brown Stone, Just Perfect, Gold Dust, White Lie, French Vanilla, Tickled Pink and Shocking Pink. They were $27.93 after the 20% off, but my shipping was $5.49.

Can’t wait to get them and show them to you!! Have you picked any up or have you been running around trying to find them? Do share!!
