Hope you are all well, I'm back with a Milani Review. Today I want to give you a closer look at Milani's newest Ultrafine Liquid Eye liners.
Please Note: Milani is Cruelty Free:)
I myself am not a big fan of liquid liners, actually I'm not a fan of eyeliner at all, even though they define your eyes and all that good stuff, I have so many allergies that it's just a turn off to me but it doesn't really stop me from trying them out and wearing them every once in a while and every so often a nice product comes along and makes me want to suffer a little, if you will ( lol ).
When I do use liners it's usually a gel or pencil not a liquid because let's face it, they are messy but these Milani ones did surprise me a bit because they did set nicely and didn't irritate my eyes so that was a plus.
I will say they do crumble off or flake off just so you understand the texture of the liner, which means when it's time to take them off they will come off very easy, and I would use and oil based makeup remover, but when applying once they set make sure you are done applying your layers, because they set pretty quick so get it done, I recommend applying 2 layers even though 1 layer will do just fine, you can do a thick or thin line because the tip is pretty sturdy and very easy to use.
I found that the blue and the green did stain, at least on me they did, my lid was stained for a couple of days, so be careful with that. They look like beautiful color foil when you apply it to your eyes. I didn't find that they smudged and when I ran them under water they seem to be waterproof as well but with my allergies I did experience some tearing and I did find that the liner ran a bit at that point, nothing crazy, with that being said the liners are long lasting, gorgeous and affordable.
They come in 5 fabulous colors
What they cost: $7.49
Where to purchase: Walgreens, Target, CVS, Winn Dixie, Sears, Kmart, drugstore.com, Lawtons drugs and of course Milanicosmetics.com

Everybody needs an awesome primer to keep their foundation on all day, right? but how much better is it if helps with multiple issues, so that's where this great product comes in.
All about it:
oil- free & lightweight
helps fill in fine lines and pores
quenches skin and seals in moisture, thanks to Hydraplex, an extract derived from desert plants.
My Overall Thoughts:
I totally love this primer, the consistency is that of a lotion so it's not like the original Smashbox primer which is silicone which I also used for quite a few years as well but this one is perfect for me because I have dry to normal skin and sometimes the dryness is out of control, this primer really keeps the dryness at bay through out the day, also it's lightweight so it feels great on my skin, keeps it feeling fresh and at the same time fills in fine lines and pores so if you have that issue it helps with that as well. My skin doesn't feel as if it's going to crack from dryness, if you have dry skin you know what I'm talking about, sometimes when the dryness attacks through out the day you just need some kind of spray or moisture and this primer provides that all day for me. Keeps my foundation intact and smooth all day, no patchy spots, no flakes, just silky and supple. I just put on my moisturizer, add a pea size and half of the primer to my skin and whatever else I'm doing that day if anything at all, and go about my business. Now, It's not only for dry skin, if you have oily skin it will work for you as well because it's oil-free so you don't have to worry about it making you extra oily and you guys need hydration too, so keep that in mine. I definitely recommend this primer to all skin types :)
Where you can fine these:
Retail Prices: $15 for the travel size $42 for the full size
