Product Review -- Milani Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Collection


It seems like every drugstore makeup brand has new eyeshadow palettes out these days.

Not that I'm complaining -- I'm always excited when we get more affordable shadow options to try out.

And since I really like the Milani Bella Eyes Eyeshadow singles, I was especially excited to test out their new Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Collections.

These palettes contain 6 shadows and come in 6 different shade selections, so there really is bound to be an option that appeals to everyone.

The palettes come in sturdy plastic packaging with gold metallic accents. Instead of the usual sponge tip applicators, they include a small double-ended brush, with one end featuring a flat shader style brush and the other a dome style crease brush.

The back of the palette offers up a look suggestion for utilizing all of the shades in the palette, though there are probably a variety of ways to use each palette.

Usually, I opt for the most neutral or natural color option when it comes to shadows because I figure that I'll get the most use out of those types of shades -- but now I've got 1001 netural/natural eyeshadow palettes, so this time, I went with a slightly more colorful option, 04 Plum Basics.

It contains a matte ivory, a matte mid-tone brown, a shimmery light pink, a satin-y dark purple, a glittery pale pink, and a matte plum.

The shadows are all pretty nice -- they're nicely pigmented and easy to blend. Some of them are a little powdery, and there is some fallout with the glittery and shimmery shades, but not enough to bother me.

The shimmery pink is such a lovely brightening shade for the lid, and the mid-tone matte brown is just about the most perfect crease shade I've ever found in a drugstore palette.

The glittery pink shade is somewhat disappointing in its sheerness, but it works well as an inner corner highlight (as the instructions on the back suggest) and also as a topper shade.

I really love all the looks I've done with this palette, and I'm defintiely going to pick up some of the other shades.

These palettes retail for $9.99 on the Milani website and anywhere Milani products are sold.

Have you tried any of the Milani Everday Eyes Eyeshadow Collections? Which shade is your favorite?

  1. The dark purple colour looks really stunning! I don't think I would get it though because most of the colours are in some way, shape or form already in my collection. :)

    Speaking of which - are we ever going to see your palette collection on your blog? ^^ I'm dying to see it (and how you store it all).

    1. I think you're right that these are pretty dupe-able shades so the palette isn't a must-have. I'm just happy to see more affordable options at the drugstore that are actually decent quality. My high school self who had no money to buy makeup would have loved all this stuff. ;)

      And you have my sincere apologies on the delay with the palette post. I actually took all the photos about a year ago, but never got around to editing them. Now, I've got a better camera so I feel like I should retake them -- especially since the collection has grown a little. I'm in the process of sorting and purging it at the moment because I'm getting ready to purchase new storage so it's probably the perfect time to do it once and for all ... so I should post it in the next couple of months. I promise. :D
