I rarely come upon the newest collection of products when I shop in drugstores so it was a great surprise to me to find the Milani Fierce Foil products at my local CVS. I had read about the eyeshadows on Daydreaming Beauty and wasn’t sure if those were for me but I was very intrigued when I saw that they had Fierce Foil Eyeliners and I needed one of those immediately.
These are a different formula than any I’ve tried. I thought that the Fierce Foil would be a gel liner but it’s actually a powder finish that applies and wears like a gel. This different finish is interesting to use and a nice change of pace.
Here’s what Milani has to tell us in this YouTube video: “Our Fierce Foil Eyeliner gets its richness from a black base that blasts the luminosity, creating a shiny, shimmery special effect that lights up your eyes. Blackened jewel tones with a foil finish, these can be used for lining or a full-on lid look.”
This is available in 4 shades and costs around $8 (I don’t remember exactly how much I paid). It’s available in Purple Foil, Black Gold foil (the next one I’ll buy), Navy Foil and the one I bought, Brown Foil. I’m always searching for a great brown eyeliner.
This comes with a nice brush that gives you a thicker application than I like so I switch to my gel liner brush from Paula Dorf that I prefer for a thin line. It goes on smoothly though I do usually go over it again. There’s a tiny bit of visible shimmer to it but not as much as you’d expect for something with the name “foil” in it.
While I haven’t tried it over my whole eye I’m guessing that with blending it a lot that the shade would be wearable for me.
All in all this was a happy purchase and I’m glad that I found it. Eyeliner is a necessity for me and I do
hoard buy a lot of them. Since I’ll never use up one I’ll stick with buying Black Foil to add to my collection. Have you seen these or bought them? I’d love to know what the purple and navy look like once on. — Marcia
p.s. I know this will be in Sunday Scoop but I wanted to alert you to a Milani Fierce Foil eyeshadow giveaway ending 1/21 on Daydreaming Beauty.
