Milani Shadow Eyez 12 Hr Wear Eyeshadow Pencils for Spring 2012 Swatches, Photos & Review

Milani Shadow Eyez 12 Hr Wear Eyeshadow 2

New this spring from Milani exclusively at CVS are Shadow Eyez 12 Hr Wear Eyeshadow Pencils.

These chubby, colorful bad boys come in six shades and are long-lasting (up to 12 hours wear), water-resistant, crease-proof and paraben free. You can sharpen them with a jumbo sharpener like the Milani Duo Sharpener.

These pencils are soft, but they don’t break easily. They are easy to apply straight to your eyelid, and blend out. I do tend to work faster with pencils than a powder eyeshadow though because they do kind of “set” then they aren’t as easy to blend. I first tried blending one with my finger, which didn’t work out that great. Then another day I used a brush and that was much easier.

They come with a plastic cap on them and they recommend you shut it TIGHT so they don’t dry out.

E l f Pigment Eyeshadow

e.l.f. Pigment Eyeshadows are a new product that I saw at Target not too long ago. There are ten shades in all, and three of them are brand spanking new.

The sets I saw come with the pigment and a small applicator inside. Two shades really caught my eye and they were Tropical Teal (one of the newest shades) and Golden Goddess.
