These are described as:

  • Long-lasting (up to 12 hrs)
  • Easy to use
  • Water-resistant, crease-proof
  • Paraben-Free
  • Sharpens with Milani’s Duo Sharpener
  • Made in Germany

This eye shadow comes in a pencil form and is small enough to slip into even a small clutch or wristlet. The formula is very creamy and pigmented with a super opaque payoff. The finish for all shades are either metallic or pearl, although they all seem metallic to me. All 6 shades are perfect for day or night. Staying power is where I was extremely impressed by it. After 12 hours, there is barely any wear at all. I removed it at 16 hours and still had a relatively hard time getting it all off easily. The oil on my eyelids by then helped in ease of removal, but I still needed some makeup remover to get the rest of it off. I was concerned about creasing initially. But true to their claim, I experienced no problems with that at all. Swatches shown below are in ascending numeric order of the shades available. For each shade, I applied the eye shadow onto my arm twice to show what it looks like when I apply it on my eyelids.
