Eyeliner -MILANI -Stay Put Waterproof Eyeliner


Great eyeliner! Doesn't get on my contacts and looks good on the waterline. Easy to apply.

Brows -MILANI -Brow Tint Pen

on 5/20/2018 5:43:00 PM


I just received my tinted brow pen and have used it twice. I love how easy it applies and the point is very slender, just what I wanted, BUT...I noticed that this Natural Taupe shade turns a bit green on me. I will continue to use it as a guide and go over with my creamy 24 hr. eyeshadow which dries and stays put all day. I only wish this eyeshadow cream was a shade lighter, but it looks better than a greenish taupe color. Until they change the formula, I will not buy this product again.

Pressed Powders -MILANI -Prep + Set + Glow Illuminating Transparent Face Powder

on 5/20/2018 10:07:00 AM


i dont like it :(

i used shade '02 transparent' and tried it with a big fluffy brush... used it to set foundation and also tried it as a finishing powder (not at the same time).

it seems to go on fine but when i look at myself in different lighting (or take selfies), it looks flat, dry and powdery. i can really see it on my skin even if i use a light application. it provides a barely detectable amount of glow/radiance for me.

this is despite using multiple applications of mac fix+ (right after application of the powder and also at the end of the rest of my makeup because it still looks powdery)

i thought maybe i would hit on a drugstore gem but the milani powder simply cannot compete with the powders that i already have (hourglass, mac, winky lux, too faced, stellar, chanel, laura mercier, rcma). at the drugstore, however, i will say that the milani powder is better for me than elf.

the milani powder cost around $11 (cdn).. so the damage is not significant but it is still annoying. this powder will be relegated to setting eyelid primer, which is what i do with all powders that i dont like on my face. yes, it will join the powder graveyard with tarte, elf, marcelle, MUFE and benefit.

darn. oh well, sometimes he have to kiss a lot of frogs to find the prince... im sorry that i cheated on my prince(s) for this frog.

(of course i mean absolutely no offense to people who enjoy this powder! it is just not for me personally)

Highlighters -MILANI -Strobelight Instant Glow Powder

on 5/19/2018 5:52:00 PM


Sooo, I was in Walmart the other day browsing around and my eye catches this baby. I HAD to have it, it looked so beautiful and creamy, so I bought this baby on a whim. Honestly though, I didn’t mind buying on a whim because Milani’s makeup line has never failed. Coming from an High-end girl that’s saying A LOT. On to the review . . . .

This baby is BEAUTIFUL !!! It’s very smiliar to the Maybelline Chrome highlighter (which I have in “Molten Gold” but that’s another review”)
I have this in the shade “Glowing” which is the darkest shade they have and it’s ABSOLUTELY beautiful!!! Like this is sooo comparable to something you would find in Sephora or Macy’s. It’s that good y’all !! I’m have tan Indian skin with lots of yellow undertones. I really love the shade because some highlighters tend to look too yellowish on me with the golden color. Glowing is the perfect shade it looks so rich and deep. This applies beautiful and wonderfully on its own but to kick it up a notch and make it SUPER creamy I first mist my brush with Hard Candy Hydrating Primer Mist and OMG you guys The finish is just soooooo adorable! It blends like a dream and doesn’t look cakey patchy nor streaky. It just MELTS into the skin and glides over my pores and acne prone skin with indented scars. This also wore from 7 AM to 9 PM for me in 85 degree weather! Just love it and also love the price tag as well. LOVE! Also to add this doesn’t have ANY glitter at all. It’s just metallic and creamy!

Primer/ Corrector -MILANI -Make It Last Setting Spray Prime + Correct + Set


How could anybody hate on this product?

Costs almost nothing and does everything Urban Decay All Nighter does, and then some. The mister is perfection, it dries down within seconds and makes even the cakiest foundation look like a work of art.

I have paired this with the cheapest of the cheap foundation, concealer and it truly does help it last all day.

I've never been someone to put a whole lot of stock into products I find "gimmicky" (see: eyeshadow primer), and setting sprays used to fall into that category, but this product made me a believer because everything looks better with this over it!
