This glided eye shadow stick by Milani is amazing! O
To start it is so easy to use. The color is very beautiful it is light but has a hint of dark to make thw color unique and pop. My favorite part is how I can apply it in the morning and it is still on by the time I go to bed. It really holds up and lasts all day long. I highly recommend this product.
I've been wearing Milani's gilded eyeshadow stick this past week. I love looking at the packaging that you can see the color right at the end of the stick. Mine is 07 Moss. It's a very deep cool tone green with shimmer. It is easy to roll up to see more product and the product glides on the skin very easily. It's a nice formula for color transfer. Unfortunately, if you try to blend the eyeshadow out it all but disappears. When blending with a brush or even my finger it just removes the product and there isn't much color left over. More just leaves the shimmers. It looks the best used a liner and not blended. It would be really hard to use it for a smoky eye, which I really wanted to do because the color is darker. The color doesn't transfer or leave fall out and does last all day! I would recommend this to someone looking for and edgy eyeshadow that would be used as a liner. I wouldn't recommend it as a buildable or blend-able shadow.

These are piorly/cheaply made. I purched 3 different colors. Every one was broken. Every one fell out of its tube. Every one was dry & crumbly. The Ulta brand or Bobbi Brown are much better.

I wanted to love this, and I'm sure it's beautiful on, but it was so fragile. It broke upon opening it…I took the cap off, and was already broken before i could even wear it. :(
As other reviewers mentioned, it breaks so easily. I used it once and it was really nice! Then tried to open it again somehow launching the ENTIRE stick inside across the room. It hit the side of my toilet. 🥲 I will be returning this

I bought this on sale and while the shade Lily is beautiful, the stick broke in half right as I opened it. I was able to kind of smush it together, but they definitely are a bit on the softer side and prone to this, as other reviewers have mentioned. The shade is more on the sheer side, but it's a nice every-day look and glides over the lid easily.

Very happy with this product. Very comparable to high end sticks. Long wearing and great color pay off. Will try more colors!

I ordered these in the shades: Moss, Desert, & Canyon. The shades are GORGEOUS! I love their finish, which is the softest shimmer/satin look. Paired with an eye primer, these last all day and have excellent pigmentation. The biggest flaw is the design of these sticks themselves, sadly. The eyeshadows popped out of the sticks as soon as I opened them and broke apart. I ended up having to shove the eyeshadows back into the containers and use them as a sort of potted eyeshadow with a brush, which defeats the ease of having eyeshadow sticks, which is especially difficult considering I have nerve issues and wanted eyeshadow sticks for this specific purpose. I really hope these get better containers because these are beautiful products!

I got the plum color. It is pretty, but it flakes off onto my face throughout the day. I'm tossing it.

One of the best eyeshadow sticks I have ever used and I've used ones four times this price

I love the idea of this shadow stick but like the review I read stated, it broke quickly. The color was not even but it was manageable however, on the second use, it broke. It got dirty on the landing and I will not continue to use it.

Was looking for an affordable version of the Bobbi Brown eyeshadow sticks and these are it. I bought the shade Marble and its such a beautiful Taupe color. I havent had issues with the products breaking like others. Totally recommend. Cant beat the price!
Susan from Boston, MA
Really like this pencil! I got 04 Desert and it's beautiful. Nice, rich, and metallic. Happy with the price of these too!
Only con is that the actual stick of product became loose very quickly and seemingly out of nowhere. Now the stick of eyeshadow inside flies out if I dont open it super carefully. It's annoying!
Deb from Flanders NJ
Ok these are beautiful and I normally love Milani, but 2 of my sticks already have broken the product fell out of the tube. The first one was the dark brown bronze shade 2nd one is the silvery color "Sterling ". Im able to return to Ulta but that's an inconvenience. Not too happy with these faulty products packaging.

A bit disappointed. It took minutes of pulling off tiny bits of plastic to try and remove the wrapper, then when i finally opened up the cap, the eyeshadow stick fell right out of the applicator onto my counter. I'm not sure if this is just a bad badge, but nothing was holding it in the stick, just fell out right away. It feels defective. The violet color (lily) was also closer to brown than violet on my skin. On top of that, I came back to leave a review and found the product went on sale and is now cheaper than when I bought it just a few days ago. Oh well. This one's a miss for me.

This is so hard to open i was tempted to throw it away without using. Once opened the product doesnt operate well in the packaging—at all. It slides in and out and breaks off. There are far better shadow sticks on the market. I dont know how fhis has 4+ stars.

It is a great alternative to regular eyeshadow but it breaks easily. I wish there a was a sharpener on the end but other wise it works good. Smooth and easy application.
Lily from Philadelphia, PA
This is a great product that rivals the Laura Mercier caviar stick BUT it breaks easily and ended up in the trash within a week.
Claudia from Fairfield, CA
this goes on smoothly and is smudge proof after about 2 minutes. My only complaint is when taking it off, it really irritates my eyes.
sarah from oklahoma
i love this eye shadow stick! i got the shade sand and it is a beautiful shimmer! it is so easy to apply on the lid and looks stunning.
Dawn from Commack, NY
The top of the shadow stick has broken off twice already resulting in losing about half the the shadow stick so far. I'm disappointed
because I absolutely love the color.

The actual eyeshadow stick fell off from the applicator part which kind of made application harder. Its not too big of a deal but it can get annoying sometimes. The actual product itswlf is really good though :)
Mel from Washington
Bought three of them and two were broken off when i opened the package. Ill be returning them as it was broken off more than half way down. Was really looking forward to a good cream eyeshadown, but may need to look at something else
Christina from Denver Colorado
Got the shade Sterling which is silver but also has a lot of gold tones so I would call it a champagne. Unfortunately it broke immediately as I opened the cap. The stick fell out and onto my floor and is now covered in dog hair. Don't buy
