Milani Shadow Eyez Eyeshadow Sticks

Milani Shadow Eyez in Brown Deluxe and Champagne Toast ($7.49)
When I reviewed the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Eyeshadow Pencil in Blackmail, I mentioned that the Milani Shadow Eyez were my favorite eyeshadow sticks. The best thing about them is that they're from the drugstore, which means affordable and accessible. I'll be reviewing two shades today: Champagne Toast and Brown Deluxe. I don't think these are good for the price, I think they're great period. Eyeshadow pencils tend to either be sheer or crease easily, so I had low expectations for these but I am thoroughly impressed! I absolutely recommend them. 
Color
Champagne Toast is a pink/beige color that looks pearlescent on the eyes. It brings a lot of lightness to my eyes and is very daytime appropriate (even though it has a lot of sheen). Brown Deluxe is a beautiful bronzed brown with gold shimmer. 
Texture
The Milani Shadow Eyez are creamy and easy to blend. The best thing about them is that they set and don't budge or crease. Since they don't crease, you can build them up and wear them alone. Shadow pencils usually crease and are best used as eyeshadow bases (example: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils) but I always wear these alone because they're opaque and long-lasting.
Longevity
These claim to be waterproof. Now, I never believe makeup companies' claims, but these really are water resistant! A swatch of these can stay on my arm all day even after rubbing it with soap and water. They also extend the longevity of any eyeshadow you but over them.
Overall
These are a bargain! Especially when there are BOGO deals. They work amazingly on their on and also serve as great shadow bases. They boost the color of eyeshadows and improve longevity. They're the best wearing eyeshadow pencils I've tried so far. I wish they would expand their color selection because these are great.

    1. If you can find fair shipping rates then I definitely recommend ordering online. You can try CherryCulture.com, I think they do International shipping and sell a bunch of Milani. xx

    But wailing aside, another excellent product from Milani it seems!

  17. I saw these in the store the other day and thought about grabbing one but thought it would be too expensive of a random purchase when I hadn't heard anything about them yet... I think you convinced me though Coco!! Brown Deluxe is GORGEOUS!!!

  23. I totally agree with your love for these. I've heard that that some of these are exact dupes for the Urban Decay shadow pencils, like ingredients and all but i've never tried those.

    1. For the second eye I used the Bourjois Liner Pinceau liquid liner, I smudged Brown Deluxe on the bottom lashline and used MAC's Chromagraphic Eyeliner in NC15/NW20 on the waterline xx
