PRO: Soft texture, shimmery, beautiful colors, highly pigmented. I have the coppery brown palette and the blue palette. Both are very pretty! CON: The packaging. The packaging. The packaging. No, I haven't broken any of them yet, but the long strips of shadow are kind of a pain to use. Milani's stuff kind of reminds me of makeup that my grandmother would have worn to go out on the town circa 1970. That is a huge nostalgic plus for me, but YMMV!

PRO: These are very matte shadows, in neutral colors, so they have their uses. They're also relatively inexpensive. CON: They are very lightly pigmented. If you are very pale skinned, these might work for you to create a very neutral eye. But if you have a medium or darker complexion, don't bother! Even with a primer (UDPP), these disappear on me.
Only a so-so product. The medium shade (2.5, "natural beige") is a bit orange-y. (How hard is it to make a non-orange shade of foundation, Maybelline?? Are there a lot of orange-skinned women out there?) I bought it looking for a cheap medium coverage foundation (since I normally use MAC studio fix, but it is on the heavy side for daily wear), but it's not that great. I will probably use it sparingly, but I will keep looking for something better. The high marks are for packaging, with the pump, which is pretty nice!
I'm not a palette girl in general (there's always that one shade that you *know* you'll never use, right?), but the purple shadow in this palette caught my eye. And it is a beautiful true shade of purple! Gorgeous. What surprised me was just how much I adore the other shades in this palette! Even though they're bright, they're completely wearable. The quality of the shadow is also top notch. And for $29? It's a steal!
I really like this liquid liner! I have it in "puro amor" (very black). I like the brush, which is very small, flexible, and easy to use, and the color is perfect--perfectly black. I'm very happy with the purchase (it seems very expensive, but you get so much that it makes it worth it!). The only think I don't like is that it takes quite awhile to dry (longer than most LLs, I think), and I get transfer marks if I'm not careful and *very* patient.
