Milani makeup

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

I received a few Milani products from Lawtons for review. They are not newly released products but will give you some highlights to the brand, if you are looking for products to try.

From L-R:
- Liquid Eye Liquid-like eyeliner pencil in Black 
- Eye Tech Extreme liquid eyeliner in Blackest Black
- Runway Lashes Instant Volume mascara in Black
- Runway Eyes eyeshadow in Beach Sand and
- Color Statement lipstick in Best Red.

I can already imagine the look I would go for using these products :)

Milani Liquid Eye Liquid-like eyeliner pencil in Black is not new to me, as I have it in the stash for a while already and included it in a few FOTDs in the past.

This liner is soft, smooth with great pigmentation. It lasts all day on me, hardly any smudges. I reach for it every time I want a black liner on the lower lash line.

It is an automatic liner, so you don't have to sharpen the tip most of the time, unless it becomes blunt due to heavy lining work. It does not come with a built-in sharpener, unfortunately, when that happens.

The liner retails for $6.29 at Lawtons.

I have heard a lot of buzz about the Eye Tech Extreme liquid eyeliner but didn't try it until now.

First off, the grip handle is extremely handy for newbies I can hold the pen comfortably with good control over the tip. Great selling point, at least for me.

This liner is also pigmented (I got Blackest Black), waterproof, dries quickly and stays on for a good amount of time. The fine tip offers precision, but with a bit of pressure, it can make thicker lines effortlessly as well. I tried both ways and had no complains.

This liner retails $11.59, quite a bit more than other liquid liners at drugstores.

Now this Runway Lashes Instant Volume mascara is a surprise. Milani mascaras aren't talked about much on blogs at all, so I didn't know what to expect.

The brush is in the typical shape, easy on the eyes (literally lol). The size works well for my eye shape and it gets the volumizing job done very nicely. No clumping happened, even when I layered more than two coats, and no smudging either.

The bright yellow cap and gold holographic letters on the black tube make the mascara stand out among other black tubes in the stash. Feels like they designed it just for me :) The mascara is $5.99, not bad at all.

This Color Statement lipstick in Best Red is one of the prettiest reds I have tried. It is semi matte but not drying. It was so comfortable on that I actually swiped my lips couple times, forgetting I had it on.

Best Red only costs you $6.99. Note that it does have a light floral scent like the rest of the Color Statement lipstick line, not a problem for me.

Now the Runway Eyes eyeshadows ($8.39 each) are meant to be used both dry and wet. This particular shade - Beach Sand - is too close to my skin tone to show up dry but it is quite pretty when wet (see a swatch below). It does have a bit of shimmers, not overwhelming on the lids. Application and blending are easy.

Swatches from L-R:
- Runway Eyes eyeshadow in Beach Sand, with a damp brush
- Color Statement lipstick in Best Red
- Liquid Eye Liquid-like eyeliner pencil in Black
- Eye Tech Extreme liquid eyeliner in Blackest Black in thick and thin lines.

If you have a skin tone like mine, Beach Sand would work best dabbed on mid lid or inner corner or as a brow bone highlight.

Best Red shows up well with two swipes, without a lip liner underneath. The two liners are dark and easy to swatch.

Here is the FOTD with all products I feature here. Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts?


  1. Can't wait to see your FOTD!! ^_^

  2. I've tried the Runway Eyes eyeshadow in "Peaches and Cream" and loved how glittery it was, but the colour just doesn't show up against my skin tone either. I never thought to wear it wet, but I'll definitely try this now!
    As for Milani products in general, I'm a huge fan of their baked blushes. They are wonderfully pigmented and come in very flattering shades for everyone.
    The lipsticks looks pretty! Looking forward to seeing your FOTD! :)

    1. Let me know if it works for your eyeshadow :) And thanks for the kind words

  3. Awesome! I love Milani. I've had great results with the eye tech liquid pen. :)

  4. I bought the liquid eyeliner about 2 weeks ago & absolutely love it! I wanna try their blushes next

    1. Great to hear, it is a good product :) And yes, their blushes are must-tries :)
