Milani Baked Marble and Metallic Eyeshadows Swatches

Hey guys! I've been gone for a while since my computer has a virus! Anyways, I wanted to share these eyeshadow I have been obsessing over! I've been testing them out for a while so I am quite familiar with their formula. I first noticed them when I was on my hunt in CVS looking for the Milani's new one coat glitter nailpolishes. On the display next to them I noticed these baked eyeshadows.

After trying four of these for the first time I was in LOVE and purchased many more. For sure I knew I loved these so much I purchased 6 more of them last week once again during the BOGO 50% off sale in CVS. So here's a compilation of all my hauls!

Marble Eyeshadows
Mingling – light frosty baby blue with white and silver glitters swirled
Intermix - brown with white and chocolate glitters swirled
Drenched in Gold - metallic yellow gold with cream and copper swirled
Together 4Ever – indigo blue with bronze and blue glitters swirled

Fusion – purple with gold and copper glitter swirled

Milani Baked Marble and Metallic Eyeshadows Swatches With Flash

These remind me a bit of MAC Mineralized eyeshadows but I wouldn't say they are the exact dupe since the colors are different however the formulas are the same. If you like MAC Mineralized eyeshadows then you'll definetly love these! Plus I love how they were half the price of MAC eyeshadows and I purchased more of them during the weekly drugstore sale!

The method of wearing any baked eyeshadows can be tricky at first, but some ways I applied them were:
- As an all over color with Urban Decay Primer Potion underneath, NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk, or MAC Greasepaint Sticks

- Apply them wet by either wetting the brush or taking some product on a brush and applying Fix+

-In the center of my eyes on my normal eyeshadow for a three dimensional look

I love these so much I will definitely purchase more colors soon! They are limited edition in CVS but I saw that they are now available on Milani's website, and Walgreen stores.

Thanks for reading!


  1. Woww all the shades are gorgeous!!

  2. This is simply gorgeous!!! My sister got one from Uk. Its the best gold eye shadow I have ever seen. I've told her to pick up a few more if she goes abroad again

  3. Thanks! The gold one is my favorite too!

  4. OMG I'm drooling over these shadows. Everything looks so pretty!

  6. I like your blog very much I follow you from Serbia :-)

  7. I need to up my eye shadow game...
    nice blog babe, now following you

  8. i love baked shadows, but i don't have any. :( i think maybelline has a similar range. nice blog u have. me following u...:))

  9. nice collection:)

  10. we got one and it just wasn't pigmented enough we might have just got a bad piece!!!

  11. These shades look really shimmery, they’d be perfect for a night out. Not too sure if they’d work on a daily basis for the office though as they seem like they’d make your eye look pretty bling. Most people seem to be recommending the gold one so I think I’m going to have to give it a try. I usually use more charcoally colours. Does anyone have any tip on how to blend colours and if these shadows are any good for that? It would be so much easier if I was one of those makeup artists in fashion jobs, they can make the most random colours look amazing.

  12. I love the colors!
