Milani has long been one of my drugstore go-to brands. You absolutely can't beat the stellar quality! Not just speaking of quality in relation to price here: These are fabulous cosmetics regardless of the price! The packaging and pigmentation is certainly amongst the best that you can find at a drugstore. If you missed some of my previous Milani reviews, be sure to check them out here: Milani Baked Blushes, Milani Brow Kit, and Milani Illuminating Face Powder.

I tested out three matte shadows from this new Milani assortment:
- #05 French Vanilla: a classic matte vanilla
- #02 Pitch Black: deep and rich matte black
- #03 Shocking Pink: bold neon matte pink
As I mentioned, the pigmentation of these shadows is really amazing: you get bold, true, and rich color. I think that because of the matte finish, these shadows feel a little bit dry. Yet, they are not at all powdery. They apply well; but, like all deeply pigmented shades, you need to do a bit of blending. The overall feel is very smooth. Oh, and the wear, a-ma-zing! These shadows easily wear all day on me.
Packaging and Price:
I really am in love with this packaging! It is simple, sleek, and study. The pan size is just a bit larger than a MAC shadow. The best part? These shadows retail for about $5.00 each!!!
Not only are these shadows packaged well, high quality, and long lasting, but also they are incredibly inexpensive! If you are looking to expand your range of matte or satin shadows, be sure to check out this range next time you are at CVS!
Are you a Milani fan? What do you recommend or love from this brand? I am curious to try out more!
As always, thanks for reading!
