Milani Brow Eye Highlighter 1

Earlier this year, Milani released three Brow & Eye highlighters, which have a variety of uses. Milani describes the shade I bought, 01 Matte Beige / High Glow as following:

Both sides can be used underneath the brow bone as a highlighter. Matte Beige can be used as an eyeshadow or eyeshadow base. High Glow can be used in the inner corners of the eyes to brighten.

I purchased this pencil primarily for the matte end, which appeared to be (and is!) a more yellow shade than the other nude pencils I own, which suits my skin color very well. First, here are both ends of the Milani pencil:

And here’s a comparison of the nude/beige liners and chubby pencils I own:

Nude Beige Liner Comparison Swatches

The MAC & NYX are very similar in color – and a bit too dark for me. The Rimmel is a little darker still.  The Jordana and Milani shadow pencils are similar in color – too pink for me – but note that they’re not dupes; they have very different textures. The Milani brow highlighter is definitely the best color for me – just a bit lighter than my skintone. It’s a great color to use as a browbone or inner eye corner highlighter; I’ve also used it as a reverse lipliner (blended well!) and on the inner rim of my eye (no irritation, but it doesn’t last very well there).

Overall, I’m pleased with the purchase – it’s a great color, but I do wish it lasted better on my waterline!

    Oooh, this looks really good on your skin! (Anything Milani now catches my attention, lol.) I tried to see the other shades via the link you provided but they have rather poor images. The medium shades seems quite pink and the dark looks like an outright dark brown eyeliner!

    First off, your swatches are pretty cute. 🙂 I think this Milani shade would work well for me as well, since I am fair with warm undertones. Thanks for your review and your swatch comparisons!!
