Milani Liqui'feye Metallic Eye Pencil in Dark Brown~ Review

From the Milani Website

This eyeliner pencil by Milani is one of five shades and all the rave reviews about it are well deserved! Although not metallic, despite the name this dark brown shade is extremely creamy, highly pigmented and long lasting to boot! Matte dark brown suits everyone and this one is very neutral as far as undertone goes- neither warm nor cool. As a plus they’re inexpensive as well! 

Though hard to find in Canada if you can find these little gems they are totally worth the look. I can easily compare these to the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner pencils as far as durability, pigmentation and creaminess go- which is amazing as Urban Decay’s pencils are about 3 times the price and are well known as some of the best pencils available.

The swatch shown is only one swipe across skin, with hardly any pressure- isn’t that colour rich?!
I have heard that these dry out rather quick but as I've only had it a couple weeks now, I can't comment on this. Overall though I'm so far loving this pencil- it even lasts decently on my waterline which is rare for me.

Sprite rating: 9/10 Difficult to find in Canada and may dry out quickly. Also not metallic like it advertises.

Would I buy it again? Yes, I want more colours!

  1. I was disappointed when I bought this one, I was hoping a great metallic like finish but noooo. I guess it has to do with the texture or something which I found too soft when I sharpened it.
