Milk Makeup - Eye Pigments
I have been slowly accumulating a full face of Milk Makeup over the last month. They're such an innovative and exciting brand - it's hard for me to resist trying every single thing. It's no surprise that their whole line is cruelty free - because they think of everything. The philosophy behind the brand, "Live your look', really resonates with me. While I am so thankful for concealer and the ability to correct dark spots, blemishes, and other imperfections, makeup is a form of self expression to me. I get just as excited to put on my makeup as I do to get dressed. Not every day is a statement, but it's a way for me to present who I choose to be for the day.
Lately, I've been playing around with the Milk Makeup Eye Pigments, and it has been so much fun.
Truthfully, It's not very often that I get super excited about bright-colored eye makeup. I always appreciate the sentiment, but I find that the products don't usually perform very well. They're either not pigmented, patchy, or just downright disappointing. But when I swatched these eye pigments in Sephora, my jaw dropped. The pigmentation is so gorgeous, the formulation is so creamy, and it is the most budge-proof cream/liquid shadows I have ever used. Seriously, it does not crease.
The color range caters to a pretty wide crowd. You have your bright colors, smokey shades, and a few neutrals as well. If you're not quite convinced that you can pull off the bright green "Mermaid parade" eyeliner (which, by the way, you totally can), there are some gorgeous golds, taupes, and rose golds. These eye pigments range somewhere between glittery and metallic. But it doesn't look cheap. It's an impressively sophisticated shimmer for a product that is so damn fun.
How to use: Squeeze product out of tube. Go crazy. But really though - I don't think are rules. You do you. I love using a small eyeliner brush to create a graphic winged liner look. I've also blended them out and used them on the center of my lid to give my eyeballs some extra pop. I can't wait to keep playing with these eye pigments! I feel like the possibilities are endless. My next moves are to mix these babies together. Milk Makeup is bringing the evil scientist / little kid out of me and I'm not even mad about it.
