  • SumoMe

Milani Mineral Shadows are available at Drugstores and online at milanicosmetics.com.

These are perfect for those on a budget or for those who want to enjoy the seamless blending of mineral shadows without the large price tag.

Move over MAC.. who is buying?

Price: $7.49

Location: Drugstores and Milanicosmetics.com


  • Soft and pigmented once used with an eyeshadow base
  • Can be used wet or dry
  • Little fall out if worn properly. Press shadow to lid prior to blending
  • Lots of colors and textures to chose from
  • Easy to blend for a smokey eye


  • Hard to find and not available at all drugstores.
  • Boomerang brush is difficult to use and appears to get in the way
  • Marbleized finish looks best in pan but doesn’t translate on the eye. May become difficult to blend evenly.
  • Can’t test colors in stores. (Look at my site )
  • Some colors are more intense and pigmented than others when used without a base

I find these to be very comparable to MAC’s mineral shadows if not pretty darn close. For the best results use it with a colored base underneath for a real pop. I would purchase these in a heart beat because of the pigmentation and appearance. Some colors are pretty normal but there are a few super stars in the batch.


  • Teal the Truth
  • Blue my Mind
  • Melange
  • Mix It Up
