Milani Eye Tech Perfection Eyeliner | Review

Milani Eye Tech Perfection Eyeliner





You can never ever go overboard with a black eyeliner, I think it’s the most commonly used cosmetic around the world… And why not, a black eyeliner is something that fits very well in every occasion, be it an everyday look or the dramatic bridal look, a black eyeliner is what most of us reach for to complete the effect. My favorite liquid black eyeliners are the ones which have a pen sort of applicator. That makes the application so quick and mistake proof. Here is a detailed review of the Milani Eye Tech Perfection Eyeliner.

Packaging

The packaging reminds me of The Curve Eyeliner by NYX , It has a curved body to give a better control over the application. The felt tip allows you to create a thin, medium or a heavy line, as you desire! It’s extremely comfortable to hold, beginners would love it for sure. Talking of the down side, I faced slight issue working on a winged liner with this felt tip applicator, I wish it was slightly more flexible.

Quality & Texture

The product claims to give a full color definition in one stroke, well… that isn’t really true, I need to coat 2-3 times to get a deep pigmented black line.

It gives a matte black finish, which is how I like my eyeliner to be.

Another good thing is, It dries quickly as you apply, you wouldn’t need to sit for long with your eyes closed, which is a common case with most of the liquid eyeliners. Also it saves a few extra minutes getting ready.

Wearability

The product isn’t waterproof, it is some what water resistant. It smudges easily on oily lids, so if you have oily lids, this is not the right product for you, if you don’t, make sure not to apply moisturizer on your eyelids as a part of your daily moisturizing routine.

It lasts for good 8 hours if you have powdered your eyelids prior application, else it stays well for about 6 hours.

4/5

Why it couldn’t make 5/5?

  1. The pen felt tips makes application along the ends slightly difficult, I wish it was more flexible.
  2. It smudges easily if you apply a regular moisturizer on your lids, or have oily lids naturally.

Broken lipsticks back to life!

Broken lipsticks

A broken lipstick is as painful as a broken heart! Some of our lipsticks are simply abandoned once broken or distorted! I surely couldn’t bear the separation, hence I decided to fix them. Using these 2 techniques I could restore life in my dead broken lipsticks and so can you! So let’s get started.

Steps to fix broken lipsticks

Step – 1

Use a candle to melt the base of the broken lipstick portion. Make sure you keep a very light hand in doing so, we just need a layer of melted lipstick to act as a glue so that it can stick on to the other portion.

Step – 2

While the base is still melted, quickly place it over the other portion. Let it cool for 10 – 15 minutes and you have your lipstick fixed 😀

Soft Bronze Smoky Eyes

Soft Bronze Smoky Eyes

Bronze can be a very interesting option when choosing a smoky eye effect. It gives the required drama without being exaggerated. Also one thing to be kept in mind is, a smoky eye is paired best with a soft pastel lip shade, can be glossy, matte or creamy. In this look, I have paired soft bronze smoky eyes with a creamy nude brown lip shade.

Soft Bronze Smoky Eyes

For the eyes I have used the quad from ‘The Nudes Palette’ from Maybelline, reviewed here.

For the face, As usual uses a sheer coverage for a more natural look. I absolutely detest a veneer of foundation or compact, the reason for which I use it is to give a finish and control oil or shine on my face, absolutely NOT to redefine my complexion.

For the lips I used a shade created and invented my ME 😀 (I mixed all the leftovers and got this beautiful shade), but I can help you find a dupe of it, its Maybelline (yes maybelline again! I am such a Maybelline Lover! I hope they notice this and start sending me free makeup 😛) Totally Toffee Lipstick, you can use it for a very similar look.
