im really torn in half with this eyeshadow. on one hand, it is THE darkest, blackest, black black blackness ever created. the color payoff kicks the ass of mac black tied or any other high end i've used. but on the other hand, the texture is so "fall-y" i could just scream. i have to get it really really wet with mixing medium for it to STAY on my eyes and not fluff off onto my …Read more

Eye Shadow - MILANI - Silver Bullet [12]

Silver Bullet is a very very light silver, almost like platinum, but its still extremely pigmented. I didn't expect that. With black smudged eyeliner this makes the most striking smokey look. The only thing I don't like about it is it sort of appears a bit "blue" in some lights. But I love it and would repurchase.

Oh baby! This is an intense shimmering ORANGEY bronze. It looks brownish in the pan but applies very copper. It might not look very good on very cool or pale skintones but i have medium/tan/yellow skin and it looks amazing. Applied very lightly it can also be a nice subtle copper, but if you apply with ANY pressure at all it's going to be bright. I like that, but others might not. I …Read more

Less pigmented?! Are you guys kidding me? I've used this a few times since I bought it 2 weeks ago and every time it's CRAZY pigmented. There's like two simultaneous radiating colors in one- blue and purple. Maybe I got a "special" pot or something. But I love it!

The color is lovely but the texture is not as nice as most other Milani e/s. It just doesnt pick up as easily or go on as smoothly. Not impossible to work with but it's kind of annoying. It's really beautiful though.

I do admit that this blush is probably not for EVERYONE, but on my skintone it's now my HG. Blue-based plum and pink. I'm tan with yellow undertones and I find that warm/red-based blushes just aren't flattering. This brings just the right amount of cool tones and pink to my cheeks. In the pan the colors look a little dauntingly bright but with a gentle hand it goes on PERFECTLY …Read more

I have both Mac Humid and Milani Clover. I think Clover is brighter. Humid is just as pigmented but Clover is just more green. I was never too crazy about Humid, it's not bad but I'm indifferent. Clover is so excellent, medium dimensional green on the cool side. I can't believe how GREEN it is. Green is my favourite color so I am ecstatic about this! 15$ for ACCEPTABLE Mac? Or 3$ …Read more

Oooh, it's SO unbelievably pretty! I agree that it is basically MAC's sumptuous olive, except a bit more gold (and 1/5th the price-- literally.) In the pan it looks like a neutral green/brown, but when I put it on (wet) it's a shimmery, luxurious, rich dark olive. I have medium/tan skin, blonde highlights, and green-brown eyes, and Antique Gold is so flattering.

Like others said, it goes on more gold than it looks in the pan. But it's a light shimmery peachy gold. It makes my green-brown eyes stand out when used on the lid. I use it as a highlighter with other eyeshadows because it's light enough and such a perfect shade for it. Also when you dont feel like wearing alot of makeup, a little bit of this on your eyes looks natural but brightened …Read more

I finally found a store that has Milani and bought a bunch. This is a very silky, easy-to-blend, PIGMENTED medium "purpley" brown. Not VERY purpley but a little. I wish it was a little darker or they had a darker version of this, as I originally wanted to use it as a liner. But since it's still extremely pigmented and a lovely color I have fallen in love with it as an eyeshadow. I …Read more
