Milani Cosmetics - Ultrafine Liquid Eyeliners - Review & Swatches
A little while back Milani Cosmetics released their new Ultrafine Liquid Eyeliners in 5 different shades, I was sent them to try out. The sites states they are a sparkling, intense color, waterproof formula, that is easy to apply and dries to down a sparkling finish.
Anyway onto the photos!
|01-Black Vinyl, 02-Black Gems, 04-Prismatic Purple, 05-Sparlking Turquoise, 06-Emerald Glisten|
My Rating: 8.5 out of 10 feathers
Cost: $7.49 ea for Net Weight: 0.0058 fluid ounces / 1.7 milliliters
Formula: The pigmentation and smoothness on these is really great, I'm not an expert on liquid liners as sometimes they can be difficult to work with but I love the fact they have some bright colors in there as well. For the waterproof factor, I found Black Vinyl, Black Gems, and Prismatic Purple to be very waterproof even after they got wet and wiping over them lightly with a cloth. Sparkling Turquoise and Emerald Glisten stayed on through getting wet with very slight fading/smearing and after wiping they came away more (although they would still be worth owning due to it wasn't that bad with getting wet and the colors are gorgeous).
The packaging: Standard packaging so nothing really special to say about it, nothing bulky though and these would be easy to take in a purse (or a pocket if you're not carry a purse).
My Final Thoughts: I love the shades they offer, I found Black Gems to be really unique and gorgeous as in the sunlight and flash it glistens with multicolor sparkles. These definitely are something I would have picked up if I saw them in the store!
Would I purchase these? Yes, if I saw these in a store and did not already own them I would definitely purchase them, for the price they are really nice and considering it's a drugstore brand these are really pigmented. They kind of remind me of the Urban Decay waterproof liquid eyeliners, not quite up to that standard but definitely worth it if you don't want to spend the $19 that UD's are. I do prefer the UD liner brush more then the felt tip, but then again that's just a personal preference as I love brushes more then felt tips.
Have you purchased any of these? What's your favorite color(s)?
