I'm very picky with skincare, I don't bother unless it actually DOES something, I'm past the point of playing around with fancy packaging and fancy names. I've been using PC for probably over 15yrs. I'm 90% happy with their products overall. This product takes some getting used to. Its fickle, it doesn't play well with all skin care products BUT when it does, oh man …Read more

Eye Shadow - MILANI - Runway Eyes - 20 True Classics

I ordered this online, I bought both limited edition palettes. This one arrived broken and I see only one color I'd used (the taupy one). The other palette 19 Naturally Chic looked more neutral online but upon receiving it, its all shades of gold which are too yellow orange for me. Why do companies think Natural and Nude mean orange??

Nobody has commented that this is NOT Milani's LUMINOUS blush which has tons of reviews. They discontinued their blush line and came out with Baked Blush and there is a similar shade called Luminoso that is now what is available. Both are pretty but they are different. Similar shade but Baked blush has more shimmer and bigger particles.

I lined on top and it made my eyes burn and tear within 30 minutes. I'm not usually sensitive to products so this one must be really bad. I always liked their basic kohl pencils but this is worthless. Save your money. it isn't even black enough. It goes on a thin sheer black which pointless. I havent had much luck with Rimmel products.

The texture is lovely, the problem is inconsistency across the color range in general. I wear their Porcelain foundation (HD compact and Flawless liquid) and the Fair is dark! I gave it to a friend who has medium skintone and it matched her. Conversely, I love their double ended Under Eye Concealer and Highlighter in both Fair and Light and they match me.(Yes I know that formula is sheerer but …Read more

I have this in Soiree which is a sheer plummy burgundy. I applied it with my finger, buffing it from the lashline up into the crease, added black mascara and I was done. 8 hours later it was still on and I have oily lids. Nice! I just ordered all the other colors. It feels like a bouncy fluffy mousse, not a cream eyeshadow. It feels like Stila's old Mousse Pots, not like Bobbi's Long …Read more

Other companies make these but they are way more expensive for what they are; a felt tip with some oil. I keep one in my purse, one in the car, one in my desk at work because I wash my hands very often and my cuticles get very dry. Moisturized cuticles go a long way to making my hands look better very quickly but hand lotion can take too long to absorb. A quick swipe at my cuticles and I have an …Read more

I purchased this in Porcelain (for ref I'm a BB Porcelain, LM Porcelain Ivory, Stila A or 10 watts, Flower Beauty PP2) and it was a touch too dark. It went on smoothly, evened my skin and left me glowy not greasy, natural and fresh. I like that it has spf 20 but feel like I still need to put a proper sunblock on first because foundations or tinted moisturizers aren't applied perfectly …Read more
