Milani Eye Shadow Pencil Green Safari
Hello beautiful ladies,
So we have a chilly beginning to 2015 and I am here with vibrant color of eye shadow to beat the chills. As you must remember that just a little while ago I showed you all three Milani Eye Shadow pencils. Today I shall review the shade Green Safari from the Milani Eye Shadow Pencils’ range.
I very much like it and you definitely need to read the review to know why I like it. Read on.
About Milani Eye Shadow Pencils: One pencil, multiple eye-catching ways to use it. A shadow, liner and highlighter in one, it’s water-resistant and crease-proof – two stellar qualities in an eye makeup product! Sharpened to a fine point, it defines. Softly smudged, it adds color – 12 shades in all, from neutrals to brights. Swept under the brow bone in one of the paler hues, it catches the light. Clearly, this pencil is as versatile as it is beautiful.
Directions To Use: Apply the pencil directly to the eyelid then blend it out with your finger or a brush. After use, always replace the cap so the tip does not dry out. Easily sharpens with Milani’s Duo Sharpener.

My experience with Milani Eye Shadow Pencil Green Safari :
Packaging: These eye shadow pencil are chubby pencils and remind me a lot of the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils. These eye shadow pencils have a body of the respective eye shadow colors and come along with a transparent plastic cap which shuts firmly.
Texture: The texture of the eye shadow pencil is very creamy and it glides smoothly with ease on the eyes without any tugging. If the texture is compared with the NYX Jumbo eye pencils, I find this to be softer than the NYXs’ ones.
Shade: Green Safari is a fresh and vibrant metallic green shade which really stands out, in a good manner of course.
Pigmentation: Pigmentation is awesome of this eye pencil, not multiple swipes or strokes are required to get the color.
My take: To start with, I would like to mention that what fascinates me the most about this eye shadow pencil is its multiple way usage. It can be used as a base, as an eyeliner and also on waterline. Despite of being chubby it is easy to draw a thin line with this eye shadow pencil.
They are really soft in texture, but this does not break the tip easily. These glide easily however if you are using them as an eye shadow, make sure to blend it quickly. Blending is not very easy. Using a blending brush to serve this purpose works best for me.
I would suggest keeping the pencil closed with the cap that comes along with it whenever it is not in use. Doing so will prevent the eye shadow from drying out.
Pigmentation is worth applauding and just a single swipe gives quite a good color pay off.
Another thing to love about it is the fact that it is waterproof. Only a good cleansing oil or a makeup remover will remove the eye shadow completely.
The thing that bothers me is that it needs to be sharpened. Sharpening leads to product wastage, which is a little heart aching to see for such a nice product. You need to invest in a big sharpener like that from Lakme, to sharpen this chubby eye shadow pencil.
Overall it is a decent eye shadow pencil which can be used in multiple ways and is a total value for money. I only wish that these were available in India.
