I was lucky enough to have received the entire new lineup of products from Milani and hands down, one of my favorite releases are these Fierce Foil Eyeshine Palettes. They not only look stunning in the packaging, but they put down pure metallic shine and color. I’ve got “Milan” for you today (the other 3 are coming up this week!), which is a palette filled with soft pinks and taupes. I’ve got full swatches, my thoughts, and a makeup tutorial and look for you inside!
01 – Milan contains 4 shades: a golden champagne, a fairy dust pink, a dark, cool-toned taupe brown, and a warm bronze-chocolate shade. All 4 of these shades are high shimmer metallics.
Milani Cosmetics actually says that these are not meant to be eyeshadow shades but a “shine.” They are intended to be a gloss for the eyes, so to speak. I actually didn’t know this prior to swatching them, so when I dipped my finger into the product I got the surprise of my life…they are squishy! These actually remind me of the MAC Electric Cool Eyeshadow products and the ColourPop Eyeshadow shades. When you touch them, they feel like a cream and are squishy and pliable. They are very pigmented, however, and dry down to a powder-like finish that lasts.
Though the texture threw me off at first, I was actually really fascinated by it. I have come to love my MAC Electric Cool Shadows and ColourPop Shadows, so it was nice to see another company offering this type of formula. The colors are all very pigmented and full of sparkle. I was very impressed with the opacity and shine.
You can see above what the palette looked like after I squished my fingers into the product to swatch it. The palette comes with what looks like a mini spatula to apply the eye shine and it actually did a pretty good job of scooping up the cream and applying it to my eyes. I did mostly use my brushes for my makeup look, but I do think using synthetic-haired brushes and your fingers will give you the best application with these Milani Fierce Foil Eyeshines.
HOW TO GET THIS EYE MAKEUP:
- Using a fluffy blending brush, apply the warm bronze-chocolate shade (bottom right side of the palette) into your crease and blend it upward toward your brow-bone. Layer this shade a few times. Also apply this shade along your lower lash-line.
- Using the same fluffy blending brush, pick up the cool-toned dark taupe (bottom left side of the palette) and apply this shade directly into the crease only to darken it up. Also apply this shade along the outer corners of your eyes.
- Apply the champagne shimmer (top left side of the palette) over your entire eyelid and pack this shade on. I found the best way to do this was with my fingertip!
- Use the pink shimmer (top right side of the palette) in the inner corners of your eyes.
- Apply your favorite black eyeliner to your lower water-line. I used Ardency Inn Modster Liner in Black.
- Line your upper lash-line with black eyeliner lightly. I used Tarteist Clay Liner.
- Curl your lashes and apply mascara. You can add false lashes if you want like I did. I mostly added them just for this tutorial.
The effect these Milani Fierce Foil Eyeshines give is just absolutely stunning. They are pure metallic beauty.
In particular, this palette, Milan will work on every single skin tone!
