Milani Cosmetics just launched, "seven revolutionary additions to its portfolio of cutting-edge makeup.  Inspired by the latest trends of metallic shine and subtle mattes seen on the catwalks of Milan, Milani will be providing women everywhere with what they need to interpret these runway looks while reflecting their individuality. In support of this launch, Milani has announced a nationwide contest, 'Win a Dream Trip to Italy,' which started on January 1, 2015."

Milani's Fierce Foil Eyeshines are among the new products released, and they are positively spectacular. They offer such a wonderful way of translating the glistening wet look runway eye makeup for amped up everyday wear. 
At first glance, Milani's Fierce Foil Eyeshines may appear to be ultra finely milled creamy powder eyeshadows, but instead they are light textured creams that are very concentrated. A tiny bit goes a long way, and they glide across the lids effortlessly and evenly. While they offer full opaque coverage, they can be sheered out for a wash of shimmering color.

You can either use the applicator or your fingers to apply the Eyeshines, but many people find that tapping them onto the lid more effective than gliding them across. The wet texture adheres to the lid more effectively when applied over a primer to avoid migration and creasing, but the little extra effort is definitely worth the stunning results.
According to Milani, their "Fierce Foil collection, releasing in January 2015, is the first of its kind with buildable, highly-metallic, foil finish that creates a look unlike anything on the market today." 

Milani Fierce Foil Eye Shines are described as, "A first! This isn’t a shadow. It is a shine. Milani’s groundbreaking gloss technology created especially for eyes instantly imparts a beautiful multidimensional foil finish. Available in four shade quartets named for Italy’s starriest, most beloved cities, the lineup includes Milan (soft pinks and taupes), Rome (lavenders and purples), Florence (coppers and gold), and Venice (icy whites and cool blues)."
Florence 03 is a warm neutral palette of molten gold, rose and bronze

Overall Assessment: Milani Fierce Foil Eyeshines are gorgeous, and the unique formula is so much fun to work with. That said, if you prefer a more traditional eyeshadow with less sparkle, then these aren't going to be a good fit for you. If, however, you love runway makeup, and want to add some gleaming shimmer and shine into your life– then look no further than these twinkling gems!

  1. Well done! I too thought they were a cream powder at first, and I tried applying them with a brush. What a mistake! I actually use their applicator and I often wet it first and tap on the color. Though they're not my favorite for blending, they provide a beautiful pop of shimmer across the lid or in the middle of the lid when I do my standard matte eye look. The shades are just gorgeous!

  4. I think there's a learning curve with these and that a lot of people will try it their typical way and not like them. I skipped them since they are too much for me personally. The good news is that I found the Navy and Purple liners today and bought them after reading yesterday's review of them.
