Out of all the drugstore makeup brands, I can safely say that Milani is my all time fave. So whenever they come out with a new line I hope and pray that my local CVS gets it in. So a few months ago when the Milani Fierce Foil Collection came out, I just had to grab a few.
I picked up two of the Fierce Foil EyeShines in Milan and Florence.
I also picked up four of the Fierce Foil Lip Glosses in Milan, Rome, Capri and Sardinia
I fell in love with the shades right away! Unfortunately, I was not pleased at all with the formulas.
Starting with the EyeShines, when I picked them up I thought they were just your normal metallic eyeshadows. So when I went to swatch them I was really surprised that they were not powder eyeshadows or cream eyeshadows for that matter. They have more of a slippery consistency, almost like a gloss.
These would be used best on top of an eyeshadow or as an base. Used alone they will slip all over your eye and will leave a glitter trail behind. Like I said before the colors are really gorgeous, but the formula of them just ruins them. I really wish they would have stuck with a cream or wet/dry powder.
As far as the lip glosses, the colors are gorgeous and very pigmented. The shine and slight shimmer are incredible and I love that they are not thick nor sticky. However, it has a slightly gritty texture which makes me want to scrub them off of my lips.
I do wish that these products would be reformulated because they have so much potential. This definitely will not stop me from buying their products. Matter of fact I just purchased their new Matte Amour Lip Cremes which I love! I’ll make sure to have those posted up on the blog soon.
