Beauty Review: Milani Eye Liners

Milani INFINATE Liquid Liner ($5.99) Up to 24 hour long lasting formula that wears with comfort and color intensity to perfection. Now you can line your eyes with ease for an all day long elegant glance.

I tried Milani INFINATE Liquid Liner in the color Eternal which is a metallic apple green color. I’d have to say that the colour was absolutely gorgeous. It made my eyelids glimmer and sparkle especially when the light hit. I liked that it was waterproof and long lasting since I tend to have watery and oily eyelids. The only downfall I found with this liner was that the application wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. It actually went on pretty streaky and clumpy and I had to constantly go over my lids to make sure it was applied evenly. If the formula was a lot thinner it would be perfect! I give this a 3.5 out of 5 stars.

[Editor's note: I actually don't mind the consistency and didn't experience any streaks or clumps. However, I do prefer to apply it with an eyeliner brush rather than the brush it comes with. I find it applies much easier. The long-lasting formula makes it a winner for me!]

Milani EYE TECH Liquid Liner ($6.00 USD)
Full color flow thru system that delivers and defines a perfect line in one stroke. Felt tip nib applicator is easy to use, provides precise control with no skipping or pulling.

I have been looking for THE perfect black liquid liner and I think I found it and will look no further. This liquid liner rocks! It does not budge one bit. Application is easy and smooth. As I had mentioned before, my eyes tend to be watery and I have oily eyelids. I’ve had so many problems with liquid liners smudging, flaking, fading but this one tops them all! I can’t say enough great things about EYE TECH. This is an absolute must have! I give this a 5 out of 5 stars.

[Editor's note: I am a fan of this felt tip liquid liner, however, I found that this one did not last as long as the Infinite Liquid Liner. My winged tips ended up smudging off after a night out. However, I do love using this to cover the bands on fake lashes. The felt tip has the perfect amount of firmness and the size makes it easier to line the eyes.]


Breakthrough formula and technology of a color liner with glitter in a retractable pencil. The soft texture ensures a perfect glide and a creamy color pay-off for a combination of superior smoothness, rich color and rocking silver metallic accents.

I tried these in the colours Purple Quartz and Black Rocks. All I have to say is that they’re just ok. They didn’t last long at all. The colour payoff wasn’t as great. It wasn’t as pigmented as I would have liked it to be. I did like the texture of it as it was soft and creamy but this just didn’t do anything for my eyes. There was a hint of sparkle but like I said it was just kind of blah. This is not a must have. I’m sad to say that I give this a 2 out of 5 stars.
Milani LIQUIF'EYE metallic eye liner Pencil ($5.49 USD)
Extremely smooth eye pencil with the application and feel of a liquid liner that delivers true color payoff, in a metallic finish with a long-lasting wear.

I’d have to agree with the above statement from their website. This liner is VERY smooth and VERY creamy. Probably one of the creamiest liners I’ve come across. I can even say that they’re as creamy as Stila Kajal liners, if not creamier! Even with the lightest hand this liner had awesome pigmentation. I like that it can be used in so many ways. It’s great to use as an eye shadow base to make your eyes really pop. I tried this in the color Silver which I used on my lids for a smokey eye. The colour is great for evening looks especially for clubbing makeup. I definitely need to get more colours! I give this a 4.5 stars out of 5 only because it’s so soft that the pencil runs down very quickly.
