Naturally Chic Shadow Eyez 12 HR Wear Eyeshadow Pencils Swatches and Review

Press Sample


Milani has launched a Limited Edition Collection this month, and it is their Naturally Chic Shadow Eyez 12 HR Wear Eyeshadow Pencils!  I have a lot of the Milani Shadow Eyez that are in their permanent line and I absolutely ADORE them!  To see they released a collection of them in more toned down shades was very exciting!

The Naturally Chic Shadow Eyez 12 HR Wear Eyeshadow Pencils collection has 6 neutral shades to use, all of which are easy to blend, don’t “tug” at your eye and are well pigmented!

Almond Cream – Matte Vanilla

Sand Dunes – Metallic Champagne

Golden Bronze – Metallic Bronze

Cafe Au Lait – Matte Warm Brown

Espresso Line – Matte Deep Brown

Black Ink – Matte Black

The Swatches:


Yes, I know I’m pale.  Especially on my inner arm.  These are the 3 lighter shades in the collection.  From Left to Right we have Almond Cream, Sand Dunes and Golden Bronze.


And the 3 darker shades from Left to Right are Cafe Au Lait, Espresso Line and Black Ink.

I used a few of these to create a look that is very toned down and on the natural side.  All of these can be used as an all over color or as an eyeliner (which I love using them for!)  I have never had any issues with color transferring, creasing or getting chalky which is amazing!  On the lid they blend together really well!



For this look I applied Almond Cream as an all over base color.  I used Sand Dunes in the crease and blended it in a bit with Almond Cream, then I applied Golden Bronze in the outer crease and blended in.  I used Cafe Au Lait as eyeliner on the top and on the bottom outer edge of my eye.  I also used Sand Dune to line my lower lash line.  I finished this natural look off with Milani Grandissimo Mascara (I have been addicted to this mascara as well lately!)



Very easy and very safe eye look!

All 6 of these are amazing.  Well worth the splurge to grab the whole collection.  I can wear these all day and they look just as good at night as they did when I applied them that morning!  No smudging, easy to blend and amazingly rich color.

Make sure you snag the Naturally Chic Shadow Eyez 12 HR Wear Eyeshadow Pencils while you can!  They are Limited Edition, so they won’t be around forever!

Naturally Chic Shadow Eyez 12 HR Wear Eyeshadow Pencils will be available at select Walgreens, HEB, and Fred Meyer stores. The collection will also be available on

Retail Price: $6.99

Will you be picking any of these up?
