I picked up this Milani ‘Runway Eyes’ palette in ‘Designer Browns’ from the states a couple of weeks ago and thought I’d share a quick review with you all. I really love the shades in this palette, they seem really pretty and wearable, but with a slight twist on the ‘norm’ with the pinky-bronze shade, peach tones and pretty shimmer running through each colour.
The packaging is really neat. I loved the look of the raised strips of product at first, but after using it a couple of times it becomes a little bit annoying, as you have to be careful to avoid picking up the next colour when you are using one of the middle shades.
The pigmentation is pretty average. Although you can get decent colour payoff from these shades if you build them up, the staying power is pretty bad. Without a primer these shadows pretty much dissappeared from my eyelids within a few hours.
A couple of people online recommended using them wet for more colour payoff, but to be honest, it didn’t make a huge amount of difference when I tried this.
Overall this is a pretty palette, but I’ve definitely been left disappointed. I don’t think I’d recommend this over my other drugstore/high street eyeshadow palettes, especially when compared to the likes of Sleek.
You can pick these up from US drugstores for $7.99
