In the ocean of affordable makeup brands I’ve never given much attention to Milani Cosmetics and boy do I feel late to the game! I recently went to the drugstore to see if anything would catch my eye and I stopped at the Milani Fierce Foil Eyeshine Quad – or as I like to call it – that fierce eyeshadow quad.
They offer four color variations and I picked up the first one called Milan. They’re made with ground-breaking gloss technology and that’s exactly how they feel. I’ve never in my life had an eye shadow with that kind of texture. The eyeshadows feel glossy to the touch and give that dewy eyeshadow look.
The colors itself have a lot of shine to them and give a stunning foil effect on your lids. The top two colors are packed with glitter so I definitely have to be in the mood to wear those ones. I love the bottom two colors more as they’re warmer in tone and add that glowy, dewy beautifulness to your eyes. The yellow gold and light pink shades are more sheer and have a chunkier feel to them while the bronzen brown and coppery shades are more opaque and creamier.
The small applicator that accompanies the quad doesn’t do much for me and I prefer to apply the shadows with my ring finger. I find that it gives me the most natural look as it let’s me evenly distribute the color while also controlling the amount better.
I don’t have any eyeshadows in my collection that give me a foiled jewel look and I think they’re going to look stunning with a nice tan in the summer. Just a little bit on the lids, no mascara and I’m ready for dinner on the beach…
Do you have any Milani recommendations for me? I’m hooked to try more of the brand and need to check out their infamous baked blushes. The Luminoso blush is calling my name!
