Milani Eyeshadow Palettes for Spring 2012 Swatches, Photos & Review
New from Milani this spring are three fun shades in their Eyeshadow Palette collection.
These palettes are meant to mimic the look of an artist’s paint palette, and I think they do a great job. I love looking at them and almost hated using them!
Each one contains seven different shades with either a matte or pearl finish. They are build-able and really soft and easy to blend.
Paint (over primer)
The colors in the Paint palette are all mattes and feature bright basic colors. I got pretty good color payoff using them over a primer, but without they were definitely a little chalky and uneven.
Impressionist (over primer)
The Impressionist palette features seven matte shadows all in soft more pastel-like shades. I love this one, it’s my favorite. Very Easter-like. I like that these colors are softer, and therefore easier to wear for more people than the brighter shades in Paint.
Abstract (over primer)
The Abstract palette includes both matte and pearl shadows in neutral shades of brown and metallic colors. This is the most versatile one I think because of the variety of shade differences and finishes. Also, this will probably appeal to more people because the colors are wearable for pretty much any skin tone. Great color payoff, really nice palette. The colors here were the softest and most pigmented with the least amount of chalkiness. Actually, this might be my favorite one…
