New Shades of Milani Runway Eyes Eyeshadow

Milani Cosmetics has introduced three new shades into its single-pan Runway Eyes Eyeshadow collection.

Runway Eyes are powder shadows baked on terracotta tiles, and made in Italy. These three new shades each have a dusting of golden glitter that will wear off the shadow, but each shade – Peaches & Cream, Antigua and Golden Touch – have a golden shimmer to them anyway.

Let’s take a closer look at each shade!

Peaches & Cream:


Golden Touch:

These three shades were surprisingly very light. Here’s swatches on the back of my hand. The top part of the swatch is over Urban Decay Primer Potion. You can see how sheer they are:

It created a very soft look on my lids when I used all three:

Usually when I use a primer under my eyeshadow it’s enough to make a shade pop. But I had to really work at getting Antigua dark at the outer corners of my eyes. I bet these shades look gorgeous on darker skin tones.

Although the shadows were sheer on their own, they can be used over top other shadows for a golden touch of glitter, and used alone they work wonderful with bold lips and eyeliner, which is how I chose to wear them in the above photos!

Honestly, these are shadows that I would likely regret upon purchasing, and consider returning, because of the lack of color payoff. I might keep one as a highlighter color. The thing is, if I am wearing sheer shadows, it’s typically because I’m at work. Golden glitter doesn’t go well with the corporate world! I’m curious about other shadows in this collection, though, and plan to pick up the color Aubergine at CVS.

These shadows are $6.99 on Milani’s web site, and are available where Milani is sold. Have you spotted these on shelves yet? What do you think? Do you ever wear sheer shadows like this alone, put them on top of other shadows or just write them off altogether?
