New at the drugstore



Milani has released a plethora of beauty treats this year and I’m making my way through all of them to share with all of you.  Today I bring to you my thoughts on the Milani Fierce Foil Eye liners.  These eye liners were an addition to their Winter/Spring 2015 line and I will be honest, I was not excited about these after not being a huge fan of the Limited Edition Constellation Gel Liners.  I figured they would be the same type of liner, but I’m glad that the formulation is much different than those.  Here are my thoughts and swatches of this new product from Milani.

The Milani Fierce Foil Eye liners retail for $6.99 on Milanicosmetics.com and come in four universal shades.  Each brush comes with a Net Weight of 0.07 oz/ 2 grams of product and an eye liner brush.  The pot size of these liners are much smaller than the Constellation liners and these have 2 grams less product than the limited edition collection released a few months back.  As similar as these may seem to that release, the Fierce Foil Eye liners are different in all ways including longevity.  Each eye liner offers you a wearable shade that can compliment a variety of eye looks, skin tones and eye colors.  While these are creamy gel liners, they offer more of a body to each one, making it easy to work with in my opinion and long lasting on the eye lids.  Each shade offers rich, intense color with a metallic foil type finish.  What I love a lot about these is that unlike the Constellation liners, the glitter / metallic finish is not a spray on and you can visibly see that it carries through out the entire pot.

Wear time for these eye liners surprised me.  While they did eventual fade some, if applied to my upper lash line, they each gave me a minimum of five hours of wear time and didn’t move or budge which I did like.  I made sure to either set them with a shadow or leave as is and allow to set and dry on its own.  These have a dryer formula than what you would expect from an eye liner in a pot, so working with the product itself can take a little getting used to if you are someone used to liquid or gel.  For some it may be a bit tugging on the eye, but if you load your brush correctly with the appropriate amount of product, I think the liners apply easily and quickly without tugging or pulling.

While these don’t have as much slip as your average gel liner, it allows you to still use as a base for eye shadows to create a cool metallic effect.  What’s cool and unique about these liners is they are each formulated with a black base, which offers a different look than your average colored liner.  These can be used as a cream base but it’s still a little on the dry side so blending may take a little time.  But, once you have the desired look, the smoldering and smoky effect you will get is really nice.  One note… in my experience these liners apply nicely but if you have watery eyes like I do – they can smudge.  Since I tend to enjoy a winged liner often, I find that my wing may lose some of its integrity if my eyes are tearing and there may be some spots where it smears off.

Overall, I like these liners.  I am someone who rather a waterproof liner and mascara over one that just claims it is long wearing but I like a liner that provides you the chance to use as a base for a smoky look or a gorgeous cat eye and I think this one does offer that.  It’s affordable and you get a good amount of product for the price.  I know I’ll get some use out of these liners and I love the shade range as the colors really help to bring out my brown eyes.  I’ll post looks using these soon – but wanted to make sure to get this up so you would have the chance to find them.  They are available at stores like Walgreens and CVS and of course online at milanicosmetics.com.

Have you tried any of these liners from Milani?  If not, which one do you have your eyes on?
