Milani Crystal Eyez Eyeshadow is marketed as a “smooth and lasting eye shadow with glimmers and pearls that deliver a sparkling finish on the lids.” These eye-shadows have major sparkle to them, but did they live up to my expectations? To read a mini-review and see more photographs and swatches,
I typically love Milani products, and find them to be one of my favorite drugstore brands. I had very high hopes for these Crystal Eyez Eyeshadows, and while I didn’t dislike them, they were simply different than what I was expecting. These “eyeshadows” are very translucent, and don’t have much, if any, color to their base. These are more of a glimmer, shimmer, glitter top coat, so to speak, for your eyes. I can see myself adding a dab of “Lovely & Luminous” to a smokey eye at night for that extra added pop, or adding “Gorgeous & Glowing,” over top of a green eyeshadow look for added shimmer. Alone, these are nearly translucent, and look simply like a glitter gel applied to the eye. Applying these straight to my eye reminded me of being thirteen again, when glitter was very big. Just because I may be disappointed in an aspect of a product, however, does not stop me from finding use for it in some way in my beauty routine. There is definitely merit in applying Crystal Eyez over your eyeshadow for a great finish, though, especially for a special event.
Milani Crystal Eyez Eyeshadow comes in six different shades, and I am likely to go back for the shade “Stunning & Sparkly” simply because it is a nude, flesh toned color, would look more neutral, and would also be perfect for applying a pop of shimmer to your lips.
Milani Crystal Eyez Eyeshadow retails for $6.49 at your local drugstore, or you can browse and purchase online by clicking the product image below:
