Vanilla and Natural Taupe

I use Matte Beige in the inner corners of my eyes to brighten up and diffuse the look of dark circles. I can switch it around and use High Glow to highlight my brow bone with a touch of golden beige. Vanilla is an excellent contouring shade as it matches my skin tone perfectly and if I’m feeling fearless I can even use it as a concealer touch up. Switch this one around and the Natural Taupe shade makes an excellent quickie eyeshadow for a smoky brown eye look that’s QUICK to blend out and pretty, just add mascara and eyeliner, done! Matte Cream is a pretty blending shade as you can add a drop into your crease and blend darker shades to sheer them out with the reverse size having a very pretty shade sparkling pink that I can use on the bow of my lip to highlight the area and create the appearance of fuller lips.

The pencils are versatile and cheap as day old chips so you can haul all three and use them for endless tricks around your face and eyes.

Loves these.

An excellent little pencil to tackle smaller jobs around your face!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Awesome idea to provide both a matte and shimmery option in one pencil, so you can use one product whether you want to go subtle or more bold.
    I take it in the darker shade it’s the taupe brown that has the shimmer? That’s such a shame; I would love if it could double as a highlight/contour stick to keep in my bag–that would be an awesome contour shade if it were matte.

    Wow! Wish I could find a store that carried Milani around where I live haha I really like that they’re double-sided – great pick!!

    Oooh, ahhh, looks SO pretty! And you use these in so many ways, Muse! Hate to ask, but can you show sample pics of how you’ve used these on your eyes & lips to match the descriptions you wrote? Pretty please?
