One of my fave eye liners ever! I've gone thru about 3 of these. This color totally makes my green eyes POP....and I never say that cuz I hate that term. hahaha But this really does do that for me. I imagine this color looking great on just about anyone. Took off one lippe since the staying power kinda sucks but for this shade it's worth that.
I'm on my 2nd tube of this stuff and while I love it I've realized that I just cannot wear it on it's own. It's too gold & thus too warm for my coloring & even kinda washes me out if used alone. But if I use it over a lipstick or another gloss for a little depth it looks absolutely gorgeous!

I used these for years, I mixed 'blonde' & 'auburn' to get the right match. And while they worked just fine I've moved on to using powder & wax w/ an angled brush for a more natural look. These work great though in a pinch & are very cheap.
I love the colors of the kohls but the lasting power on them suck. Phone Number is a great one to use when stark black is just too much. But I usually only use this to line my bottom inner rims...but again, they don't last long.

Fabulous stuff! This works so great & is so easy to use with an angled brush to create a perfect liquid liner look. This is also the best product I've found for tightlining. I took off one lippie since IMO they could last a little longer. Most say they wear like iron but by the end of the day it usually smudges a bit in the inner corners for me...not too terribly noticeable though.

I bought this after my very long search to find a color similar to Teddy eye kohl. I LOVE Teddy but the staying power of the kohls suck so I went in search for an e/s or another liner to replicate the color of it. This was the closest to Teddy I could find & I'm quite pleased. It's not exact; Teddy goes on a bit darker but GB def. stays on longer & the color is gorgeous as well. Also works well for tightlining & lining the bottom inner rims. EDIT: I just wanted to change my rating from 4 to a full 5...not sure why I only gave it a 4. This also works beautifully as a base for dark, smokey brown e/s colors. Check out my pics!
Love this blush...one of my faves! Although it is not very peach at all...more of a pale pinky color. Oh well, still works great for me & I reach for it often.
I'm surpirsed the reviews on this aren't better....this is a great shimmery (but not overly so) white shadow. Not too sheer IMO but I generally only use it as a brow highlighter not an all over wash. Great for inner corners too.
Wow, this must have been discontinued, hardly any reviews? I've had mine for *years* though. Anyway I have to disagree w/ the review below. Teal green? Not at all! This is a darkish, matte grey w/ slight blue undertones....I love it & it's perfect for a smokey eye that's not all sparkly. I often pair it w/ Hi Ho Silver & White Lies....fab combo! Too bad it's been discontinued (?) I would have def. repurchased if I had to.

This is a decent, average gloss. It's a nude caramel on me and pretty sheer. It's okay, not HG material for me by any means but I use it now & then. I wouldn't buy again just cuz there are better nudes out there for me.
Wow! I'm surpirsed I have not reviewed any of my Jane shadows....they are so great! I usually buy only MAC but Jane & Milani are fab ds alternatives. *Anyway* Hi Ho Silver is the most perfect true silver IMO. Silver is a hard one for me to wear (NW20)....it usually looks either too white or too blue, this is just silver! Looks great as a wash all over lids paired w/ a darker grey in the crease for a deep smokey look or even works in the crease w/ a lighter color as a wash for a softer, lighter smokey eye. Super verstile.
I love Whirl! It's similar to Spice but not orangey like Spice...that one just did not work on me. Whirl is a lovely neutral pinky brown (but not too brown IMO) color to use w/ most any shade of l/s.
Since this is my first review of Milani e/s I'll start with saying these are of wonderful quality...especially for the very low price! Antique Gold is a very pretty deep khaki/green/gold color, to me it's similar to MAC Sumptuous Olive, maybe a tad darker. Very nice for creating a dark smokey, greenish eye.
I've had this shadow for years & I can't believe I never wrote a review! Anyway, I adore this color! It's a dark brown/bronze with bronze shimmer/sparkle. It okay to use on the lids or crease but IMO using it like that makes it a little muddy looking. The best way to use it is as a liner wet. It really brings out the bronze shimmer like that yet it still looks natural if you're going for that look. Def. a staple for me. Too bad it's disc. per the reviewer below. :(
I bought this on a whim at CVS one day since I had been casually searching for a peachy blush. This may not be the perfect bright, pure peach blush but it's still great. It's a little more brown & very neutral. Packaging is a little bulky & ugly but it just stays in a drawer anyway so it's not a very big deal. I've been very pleased w/ the majority of all the NYC things I've tried.
