Review of Milani Marooned by Seclusae2
DESCRIPTION OF ME Asian with a warm complexion (C3-C4 in MAC) with strong yellow undertones and some peach. Black hair. Oily skin that is prone to breakouts.
GENERAL DESCRIPTION Powder eyeshadow. Around $2.99 US retail at Walgreens, Ulta and Sav-on for sure.
PACKAGING Milani powder eyeshadows come in a simple compact with a transparent lid. It does not come with a sponge or applicator. The pans fit into MAC and Cover Girl palettes. Nothing problematic.
COLOR Marooned is a dark brownish red with some fine shimmer. It actually looks very drab on the pan. Applied dry it looks like a very warm reddish brown instead of a brownish red. This eyeshadow really shines when it is applied wet. It turns into a more vibrant shimmery brick red. It really picks up the warmth of my brown eyes. However, this color can make my eyes look really swollen and tired in some lighting schemes. Don't even think about wearing this eyeshadow if your eyes are red and irritated. This is the reason why I gave this eyeshadow four lipsticks instead of five.
TEXTURE This is one of the best Milani eyeshadows in terms of texture. Very soft and pigmented.
OVERALL Fantastic drugstore eyeshadow with a very unique color. Worthy of a repurchase.
