Back in December I posted a snapshot of some new displays at CVS for Milani, Almay and Maybelline. Well, I'm a sucker for baked eyeshadows, so I couldn't pass this display buy without grabbing one (or two) of the Milani colors. I got Famous Duo and Mingling to try out.
Mingling is a swirl of ivory, turquoise and hints of lavender and pink. There is iridescent microglitter swirled throughout. I immediately thought of my Laura Geller Baked eyeshadow duos when I saw this color. It is very different from any of the other blues I have on hand, so this was an obvious buy.
Famous Duo has black, charcoal, and brick red swirled throughout. This has what appears to be a deep silver microglitter. When swirled together, it gives a really warm charcoal color.
I have swatched these below - keep in mind these are wet/dry shadows, but I would highly recommend either using a primer or applying these wet in order to get the full effect. If you do them dry, the pigmentation is minimal, and the shimmer falls out. With a primer or wet the colors are just plain gorgeous. The deeper shades would be beautiful as liners as well.
The Baked Marbleized Eyeshadows retail from $6-7.99 depending on location. Have you tried them? What's your favorite color?
