The first time I heard about these Milani Eyeshine quads was just a few days ago. Daydreaming Beauty posted images on them via Facebook, and I went a little psycho over them. I immediately shared her image on Facebook, threw on my coat and went to my nearest drugstore to hunt them down. I found all four quads at my local CVS for $10. I did some swatching and posted a video on the Florence quad on Facebook and Youtube.
Isn't it gorgeous?
These are cream eyeshadows, and they don't always work on me. Since my eyes get oily, I knew I had to apply this over Too Faced Glitter Glue. It's one of the only bases thats colorless and helps it stay put. I thought about applying translucent powder over the shadow and in the crease, but I was afraid I'd lose some of the luster.
Here are the swatches from the quad.
Here's a picture from six hours later. As you can imagine on oily eye lids, there was a bit of fading in the crease area. However, as an oily girl, this is the norm for me. My eyes are slightly hooded, so there was a bit of eye shadow In my crease area, and a teeny bit of shimmer below my lower lash line. I'll definitely try adding a little powder next time. The verdict? These have some pretty decent staying power. For $10, you can't really beat it. For more information, you can check them out here on the Milani website.
