Milani’s Shadow Eyez collection

I’d seen these in drugstores, but I didn’t know if they were any good. Gianna often talked about her favorite pencil Champagne Toast, and enthused over all of the Chic Nude pencils when they came out…so I made a purchase from Cherryculture one time during a summer sale. I scored several of these pencils, but also managed to get ahold of the entire Holiday Romance limited-edition collection of pencils. Trying those out convinced me to go back for the colors from the regular line (at drugstores, when there was a sale or a coupon available. Not because I don’t feel that they’re worth it, but because Cherryculture didn’t sell these at much of a “discount” price and whenever I can, I’ll use discounts.)
