I purchased Black and Espresso (Dark Brown) and I gotta say, I was disappointed even though it didn't cost much. :(
Yes, it applies smoothly and its cheap but there are so much better eyeliners out there.
I have to apply 3-4 times in order to get a solid color from it, and the smudging is terrible. I do use an incredible primer (E.L.F. Eyelid Primer) but it smudges no matter how much primer I put on. And it fades after maybe 2 hours. It doesn't even make through half of the day. :(
Milani is great considering eye wear but this was just...terrible. I will repurchase other items from Milani, just not this eyeliner.
I've never really used any Milani products before besides a nail polish about 3 years ago so when I saw this at Target for $3.99 (roughly) I picked it up in Charcoal. Usually Charcoal is a pretty dark black but when I opened this up I could already tell just from the color of the actual product that it was more of a light grey than black. The color pay off was horrible for me. I found myself retracing my line about 4 times and yet it was still a light grey color, Definetly wont buy this again, the color pay off just wasnt that great.
Great basic black liner. Good color and smooth application. The only thing is that it does not last long. You would need to reapply within an two or three hours. Don't even try to put it on your waterline, doesn't stay at all. Good for school or work with a few touch-ups.
i've tried quite a few pencil eyeliners, from wet n wild to covergirl to nyx and i must say, this is one of the best pencil eyeliners i have ever come across.
i use the black color and it glides on really smooth. i only line my upper eyelids and it's so easy to draw a straight light across. i would recommend these for beginners or people who struggle with lining their upper eyelids, because this works like a charm. it is truly an 'easy liner.'
also, i love how it's a smooth tip and you don't need to sharpen it because it's retractable. big thumbs up.
however, it can wear off. if you sweat a lot, this product will most likely smudge. not a lot, but a bit. i have found traces of it on my crease, but typically on extremely hot days. on a daily basis, this eyeliner stays perfectly.
the eye color isn't dramatic and it's excellent for every day use. i love this eyeliner!
not a big fan, not pigmented enough.
i dont really know if i like this or not. it takes a while to apply to my water line, and it does migrate badly. the color payoff is good and it dosent irritate my sensitive eyes. it was pretty cheap so no complaints on that. the only thing that bothered me is that it is impossible to come off!!!!!!!! i used two different types of makeup removers and took two showers and it didnt come off completely for like two days since applying. for that i dont think i will buy again
I picked this up on clearance at CVS in blue eyes. I would recommend swatching this before you buy it; it's a pretty aggressive color and a bit brighter than I expected from the packaging.
I finally got around to trying it out and I put it up to the ultimate test; the bottom lashline. Holy raccoon eyes Batman! This migrated really badly; way worse than my other pencils do in that area (UD, Stila, WnW). And this was with eyeshadow primer applied.
I quite like it, its soft and applies pretty dark, and I like that I don't have to sharpen it, although the end does get a little blunt. Pretty much what I ask for in an eyeliner :)
I was looking for a new eyeliner to replace my MAC graphblack eyeliner. Essentially I was looking for a cheaper alternative. I purchased this Milani eyeliner in Black. I honestly don't like it. It is easy to apply but throughout the day, I notice that it transfers and smears. It does not last all day and I end up looking like a raccoon. Once I finish this eyeliner, I will never purchase it ever again. I'm only using it up so I don't waste the product.
I really didn't like this. It irritated my eyes when I used it for tightlining, and it migrated to my waterline because it was so smudgy and creamy. Though, because of the creaminess it was easy to apply, and I didn't have any skipping with it. There are much better eyeliners out there that DON'T migrate or smudge, even at the drugstore. Will not repurchase.
