1 stars out of 5

Milani Peach Tinted Undereye Brightener ($8.99) is a new 2-in-1 peach tinted color correcting undereye brightener that contains Peach Extract, Hyaluronic Acid and Caffeine. Milani actually has two different eye correcting tints floating around that launched for Spring 2021! This is one of them and belongs to a new Milani Skin Fresh or Fruit Fetish-like Collection that seems to be exclusive to Walgreens and the other is from the Supercharged Collection available at mass retailers like Ulta. The other version of this is called Milani Supercharged Brightening Undereye Tint and it’s available in three shades where as the Peach Tinted Undereye Brightener is only available in one. I haven’t tried the Supercharged formula as of yet but I did compare the ingredients and it looks like they do contain a lot of the same stuff.

Here’s a break down (I tried to bold all some of the ingredients that they share in common).

Milani Peach Tinted Undereye Brightener Ingredients
Water / Aqua / Eau, Dimethicone, C13-14 Alkane, Phenyl Trimethicone, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Diethylhexyl Carbonate, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Pentylene Glycol, Mica, Phenoxyethanol, Vinyl Dimethicone/Methicone Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer, Silica, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Prunus Persica (Peach) Fruit Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Flower Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Tocopherol, Magnesium Sulfate, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-di-t-butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Stearoyl Inulin, Disodium EDTA, Caffeine, Sodium Hyaluronate, Niacinamide, 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract, Collagen, Ethyl Hexanediol, 1, 2-Hexanediol, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499)

Milani Supercharged Brightening Undereye Tint Ingredients
Water / Aqua / Eau, Dimethicone, C13-14 Alkane, Phenyl Trimethicone, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Diethylhexyl Carbonate, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Pentylene Glycol, Mica, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Tocopherol, Magnesium Sulfate, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-di-t-butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Silica, Vinyl Dimethicone/Methicone Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer, Stearoyl Inulin, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Disodium EDTA, Caffeine, Sodium Hyaluronate, Niacinamide, 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract, Collagen, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Flower Extract, Ethyl Hexanediol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499).

There’s some differences obviously but they do both contain Caffeine, Sodium Hyaluronate, Niacinamide and of course, the standard silicones. The most disappointing aspects is although they contain some great stuff like Niacinamide and Sodium Hyaluronate it’s really a small amount. I think the “2-in-1” formula referred to the fact it corrects and also acts as an eye cream of such that will brighten eyes, hydrate, and treat dark circles but you probably won’t see skincare benefits from something that has a small amount of the products meant to address such issues. And that’s ok because I never really expected it to do all that however, I always get a little irritated when the marketing does promise so much!

Milani Peach Tinted Undereye Brightener is 0.51 oz in size and is $8.99 at Walgreens. I’m not sure if they plan on introducing this new line of “fruit” themed items to other retails but as of now Walgreens has the complete collection and I haven’t seen it anywhere else. I did review the Milani Peach Make It Last Setting Spray as well this week which is also part of this collection!

This is a very basic product and you’re either going to enjoy it or find it too sheer. The color is very flattering for me. It’s a light, warm peach shade. If they introduced it in a more pigmented formula I could probably get away with using it as a concealer or even as a corrector but it’s very sheer. That being said younger eyes that don’t require a lot of coverage or anyone that doesn’t really wear concealer may actually like this product. Personally, I need way more pigmented to brighten up my eye area. This was simply too sheer to do much.

The formula is creamy but think and applies very easily with absolutely no tugging. It’s very easy to apply and blend. It doesn’t crease into finer lines nor does it cake it and feels like a refreshingly light eye cream formula but sadly, provides little to no moisture. I think if I’m going really natural and not applying makeup for the day I’d consider hauling this out and apply a little bit under my eyes. It offers a little bit of correcting action to perk eyes up but yeah, way too sheer to do much!

Milani has a good idea but the product needs way more pigment to actually work not to mention we aren’t all going to need a single shade of peach to correct darkness! Some of us may require a lighter peach and others a darker one.

Milani Peach Tinted Undereye Brightener is available now.

Where to buy

Walgreens Milani

Milani Peach Tinted Undereye Brightener is a new brightening 2-in-1 correcting concealer that’s 0.51 oz in size and priced at $8.99. This comes in a squeeze tube and is available in a single light warm peach shade. This isn’t really a concealing but only a correcting product that also hopes to act as an eye cream as well with ingredients like Niacinamide and Sodium Hyaluronate. Sadly, it fails at being either one. The formula is creamy and light but applies and blends out easily but it’s very sheer and doesn’t really correct darkness but does offer a very slight brightening. Since most of the best ingredients in contains are very low on the list chances are it won’t do much to treat dark circles, puffiness, or even provide basic moisture retention thanks to the Sodium Hyaluronate!

  • Doesn’t crease or cake looks smooth and natural under eyes.
  • Lightweight.

[colsep]

  • Very sheer which results in very little correcting power.
  • Limited to a single shade.

Milani Peach Tinted Undereye Brightener might be an ok pick for someone that doesn’t wear a lot of concealer or makeup!

    Pretty sure this line is called the Milani skin fresh collection, I was pretty confused since it’s not on their website and they haven’t said anything about it.

    Would love to see this eye tint compared to the other one from The Supercharged collection.

      yeah I know. I mentioned it was called that in the post 🙂 There are three shades in the Supercharged Collection sadly, I don’t any of them to compare.
