Milani Runway Eyes Golden Touch Review, Swatches, Photos

Milani has introduced four new shades in their Runway Eyes Collection for Spring 2012. I haven’t had success tracking them down but was lucky enough to come across Golden Touch this week.

I love it!

Beach Sand is one of my favorite shades from Milani so I was happy to see another sparkling, sheer shade. This isn’t for everyone and many folks probably won’t like it but I adore it.

It’s does have a good deal of a golden over spray which swipes rather quickly away to my disappointment but underneath is a sheer, light gold powder with a tiny hint of sparkle that lights up eyes beautifully. This is one of those shades you’ll want to indulge in if you want to do a natural eye look or a dramatic winged line or perhaps you have tired eyes or darker circles, this is an idea shade for brightening eyes up.

Pigmentation is pretty subtle but the shadow has a nice silky feel and blends easily. Like I said it’s not really a shade everyone will love due to the subtly of the color pay off but I thought it was incredibly pretty.

I’m looking forward to getting my hands on the other new shades.

I got it at Walgreens but it is available online at if you can’t wait for it to hit stores!

    Oh, wow! I really like the packaging on this!

    This is pretty, but not a color I would wear often.

    This looks gorgeous…like Nanogold. I’m a big fan of the runways.

    Do you ever watch Tiffany D? She’s in love with MAC’s Carefree right now – and this looks like it could be a good dupe!!


    • 2/3/12 12:21 the Muse:

      oo I need carefree ;D!

    Ok, wait. Where is the rant about the applicator included????


    • 2/3/12 12:23 the Muse:

      sorry, I actually use my own sponge applicator and didn’t bother with it :)


      • 2/3/12 12:26 Kimryan8:

        I know! I wish they would stop including the crappy applicators and knock the price down 50 cents. I don’t mean to sound cheap but they always suck and nobody uses them!


        • 2/3/12 12:36 the Muse:

          I think I paid $4.59, I’ve love $3.99 range…I’m not cheap either, but $3.99 def sounds nicer :) yeah, the applicator isn’t really fab :-/


          • 2/3/12 12:39 Kimryan8:

            Gosh – didn’t mean to sound so angry! The color is really, really pretty, I love golds. It is just irritating with all the useless applicators all the time.

          • 2/3/12 13:05 the Muse:

            no worries, understand :) just toss them and use your own :)

    Is it a light gold color or is it a shimmery yellow-beige color? Cause I have a lot of beige-y colors but I would love a light gold.
