Milani Cosmetics’ Shadow Eyez pencil in Cafe au Lait

A good basic lighter brown creme (or matte - there's very little shine on this color, that I typically associate with “creme”-finish makeup items.) I like how this applies smoothly and with no thin spots or clumping. I also like how it gives me color without it being too strong. I get a softer suggestion of definition, which is great either for “no-makeup” days or for a neutral base for my eyeshadow.

This shade was added to the Shadow Eyez lineup along with the rest of the Naturally Chic pencils.
