Milk Makeup's Eye Pigment is a durable, cream shadow that delivers intense metallic pigmentation. Not everyone will find the texture easy to work with, but the tradeoff of long-lasting wear might be worth it for some.
A little goes a long way with the creamy-paint texture dispensed via squeeze tube. The fragrance-free formula sets quickly so it requires swift blending (and/or layering if you want to build the color). The upside is that it stays put morning to night, and resists creasing, even on those with oily lids.
Getting softly blurred edges takes some practice with this kind of shadow. We found diffusing it out with a complementary powder shadow worked well.
True to the Milk Makeup aesthetic, there are lots of trendy shades, as well as some more everyday wearable colors. All have glimmering shine that can highlight wrinkly lids, but if that's not an issue for you, Eye Pigment can be a fun addition to your makeup stash.
- Highly pigmented, metallic finish that pops.
- Budge-proof and crease-resistant, from morning to night.
- Variety of trendy and more everyday wearable shades.
- Fragrance free.
- The cream texture isn't the most user-friendly (it sets quickly so you don't have a ton of time to blend).
